What can I say- great location and décor, great service and wonderful food. Recently went here for lunch. My wife and I had drinks, shared 3 appetizers, a salad and a dessert. Enjoyed everything. Our favorite restaurant after 2 weeks on 3 islands in Hawaii.

This is my second lunch at Mama's, once in 2011 and now in June 2014. Both were a real treat. The food was excellent as was the service. The views at lunch time are some of the best on the planet. All of the fish is fresh that day and caught by local fisherman, it doesn't get any better than... More

While in Hawaii, I went to this restaurant recommended by my business partner. I got there while the restaurant was in "transition" to dinner service, and they had closed the main dining room. The staff offered me a table that was located in what I call "the hell side of the restaurant". It was scorching hot, no ventilation, and 0... More

Best meal I have ever had? If not, it comes darn close. Fish is perfectly cooked and extremely fresh - never had seared Ono before and it was fantastic. Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and lobster was also outstanding. The Maui ceviche was undoubtedly the best rendition I have ever had. The service was extremely attentive. All of this, of... More

We called to get a reservation as we have heard about the place from family that went there. We could not get a dinner reservation during the time we were to be in Maui so we called back to see if we could get in for lunch and guess what - we did! It was wonderful. On the expensive side... More

Went to lunch and the whole experience was awesome. Great food-interested flavors and a beautiful unique beach setting. A call out to a waiter-Mike Caires-Good service and wonderful stories of a 5th generation native. Bonus-hearing his experiences as a bull rider on Maui.

We went to dinner at Mama's Fish House for our 36th wedding anniversary after friends recommended it for our stay on Maui. We arrived a little early so we had a short wait, but the staff made sure we were comfortable. When sitting down at our table, I was given a beautiful plumeria lei (complementary of course) and the rest... More

We had an excellent meal this week at Mama's its tasty and the service is great but the style and ambiance is rather like stepping back into a James Bond movie from the 70s. great setting and I love the idea that they tell you which fisherman has caught your fish that day.

Oh my goodness ... where do I start? When you drive up to Mama's Fish House you may have your doubts. Don't! When you walk down the walkway to the restaurant the view is breathtaking. A beautiful beach and the bluest waters greet you and say Welcome! We were seated so that we had this view while eating also. The... More
