Mama's Fish House lives up to it's reputation and beyond!

We were a party of six, celebrating our three men turning 60 this year. We were told we HAD to go to Mama's Fish house, even though my husband doesn't usually eat fish. So we went. It was everything we could have possibly asked for. We had a fabulous table, the meal was leisurely and fun and... read more

My wife and I and another couple went for dinner and had a great experience. I would suggest that you make a reservation as it tends to get quite busy. I had the crab stuffed Mahi Mahi super good. We will be back.

The BEST restaurant on Maui. Worth the travel to visit. Food is amazing, ambience is great, not a better ocean view although not a sunset view. We have been here twice and not been disappointed. Make reservations ahead of time and enjoy the meal!

Been coming here for years and they never fail. Best spot on the island. Excellent food and service. Make sure you come hungry because you are going to leave full.PS save room for desert.
