Didn't need to look at the menu, knew I was going to have the Mahi Mahi stuffed with lobster and crab meat. Nice atmosphere, slightly overpriced but still an excellent meal

Mama's is a Maui institution, since the 70's. Is it good? Damn right it is and at the prices they charge it better be at least good, if not the best. Think lunch is gonna set you back 50usd per...yup you read that right...Dinner? you can easily double that ticket. However, this is a very class act...they do basically EVERYTHING... More

Let me start by saying I had made these reservations over a month prior to arrival on Maui. This was for my husbands birthday & I was told by our hotel that we would a very romantic table with an excellent sunset view. We arrived about 30min. prior to our reservation so we had a seat at the bar. We... More

Our waiter returned with the same order that had been taken back and advised " sorry we... More

Everything about Mama's is special, from the free valet parking to the gorgeous beach setting... and then there's the outrageously good food. This was my second visit, daughter's first, and we both raved about the experience. (On this trip, we visited several top-rated restaurants, and Mama's came out as #1 for both of us.) I had the Mahimahi stuffed with... More

It's a bit pricey but well worth the splurge. We paid 300$ for dinner which included an appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, and 3 drinks. Everything was delicious and the view is fabulous. I've heard to go for lunch but we went for a birthday dinner so well worth the experience.

I live right down the block, and yet I always avoided Mama's because there are other good fresh fish places that are more affordable and more...how should I say....local. Boy, I had missed out on a good thing for far too long! I don't know where I really got the idea that it was for tourists or just special occasions.... More

I prefer the luncheon menu as just as yummy as the dinner entrees. Also, it is more affordable for those watching their dollars. Service is excellent. The scenery provides great views of the ocean. Besides the grand entrees, Mai Thai's are worth trying too. Enjoy.

Yes, the prices are a bit outrageous, but when you combine a killer ocean view, an interesting restaurant environment, wonderful service and truly outstanding food, yeah, it was worth it. The menu listing of the various fish dishes, of who caught them and of where they were caught, might seem a bit over the top, but the result is that... More
