We ate here for dinner on our last trip to Maui after our friends suggested we try it. And I'm glad we did. We had a reservation for 8 and had an excellent table with a view. I suggest you make a reservation prior to your arrival. The view is spectacular at sunset and the restaurant has an excellent spot... More

We loved everything about this restaurant from the beautiful space to the delicious dinner and the fantastic service. It was our favorite dinner in both Oahu and Maui - I highly recommend it!

Is this place expensive-yes! Is the front staff a bit snooty-yes! Was the wait staff and other staff on top of their service-absolutely. We had lunch at this outstanding restaurant and glad we came. After several days in Hawaii finally found a place where one was not rushed, one could sit and admire the ocean view, and the food came... More

I arrived here quite early due to few free tables, which i actually think was good. Around 5 p.m. the restaurant was not too crowded and my excellent waiter (whose name i unfortunately can't remember) was helpful and attentive. For starters i had grilled papaya with beef sirloin which was excellent, for main I had a whole grilled snapper like... More

This was my third visit to Maui but my first to the oft-recommended Mama's. Sub-par for both service and food. Lovely view, but we had that at several (better) restaurants in Lahaina. My appetizer arrived before my wine. Only two non-seafood options for my daughter who will not eat anything from the ocean and her portion was tiny. My ceviche... More

A great location, very good fish, and a great ambiance. Went there for the first time in 1983 and it brought back great memories.

It's expensive but if you are willing to fork over some cash for an enjoyable dining experience then you are gonna love this place. Heck you are already in Maui so you might as well splurge! Just so you get an idea of how good this place is, you should know that my hubby hates fish. He hates all of... More

The ambience is Hawaii-chic. The drinks are pretty good. The views from the courtyard and the restaurant are both extraordinary. However, the food is very expensive and I would eat before going there as this is a nice place for an occasion but too pricey for a real meal

We went to Mama's on our honeymoon in 1989 and went back again this year for our 25th anniversary. It was well worth the wait! The food is outrageously fresh, flavorful and unique. Many restaurants can and do serve fresh caught island fish, but Mama's preparation is one of a kind. The restaurant's location is spectacular, so get there early... More

Beautiful location, tasty food, unfortunately the service was not that great. They had probably forgot about our orders so we ended up waiting some 45 minutes between the end of our appetizers and our entrees... But the place was truly beautiful and is worth being checked out.
