Delicious but check your credit limit.

This restaurant has a wonderful setting, great service, beautiful decor, and fabulous food. Our family of four went for what we call "linner", which is to say a late lunch/early dinner. We had expected the restaurant to be fabulous but we had hoped for less-than-dinner prices. We were half... read more

This is my all-time favorite restaurant....anywhere!! The setting is absolutely beautiful, the presentation of the food is outstanding and delicious, and the service is friendly without being intrusive. We don't get to Maui very often, but when we do, Mama's Fish House is a must.

Mama's Fish House is one of my favorite restaurants, not just in Maui, but everywhere I have traveled. While the location is somewhat out of the way from the more touristy areas of Maui, it is well worth a visit. The restaurant is located near the water, though not exactly overlooking the ocean. Definitely make a reservation if you plan... More

I agree with others that this is a must when in Maui. It is so much more than just the food. The place is so beautiful gives you a sense of Old Maui. Restaurant is lovely with great service and the food is out of this world. Loved it . It is pricey but it is worth the money .

My husband and I came here for lunch. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was absolutely phenomenal (the creme brulee was out of this world!). The restaurant sits right beside water so you get an amazing view. The staff are very courteous and friendly - we couldn't have asked for better service. Recommendations are probably the way to go,... More

Mama's Fish House has probably the best location for a restaurant in Hawaii. It sits in a protected area on the beach in Paia, just south of Ho'okipa Beach. The food is very good, a little pricey, but for the location, ambiance, and some of the best appetizers I have had, worth the price!

We heard that Mama's Fish House was the place to go in Maui for fresh seafood. We decided to go for lunch and hike to a nearby waterfall afterwards. Men are not allowed to wear t-shirts, but the atmosphere is still rather casual. We were impressed from the moment we arrived. There is free valet parking, the restaurant is on... More

Service is exceptional, decor is beautiful, an awesome view of the ocean no matter where you sit and the food is delicious and well worth the money. I would definitely put Mammas on your list to visit. Plenty of "Kodak" places to take your family pics!

We had a full day on the road to Hana and around the island. On the way back we decided to check out Mam's Fish House and were able to get a seat at the bar. It would have been great if we could have made a reservation beforehand and had a seat that looked out onto the beach, but... More

While on Maui you absolutely have to visit Mama's Fish House at least once. It is the most exquisite restaurant we have been to on Maui.
