We had to great good fortune to have dinner at Mama's on our last night in Paia (Maui), and it was memorable. Though rather expensive, everything is made to perfection. We opted for two appetizers that were amazing: a special of raw ahi tuna marinated in a fabulous sauce and crispy mahimahi roll, which the outside was crunchy and the... More

While expensive this place has a setting like no other. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. This is truly an example of getting what you pay for. We visited twice, once while returning from Hana and for our last dinner in Hawaii. An excellent place to say Aloha to the Islands before our flight back to winter!

We accidently stopped at Mama's on a road trip to Hana. Best "accident" we ever had. The atmosphere, service, location are outstanding. The food and drinks were outstanding and we believe that Mama's was one of the top 3 restaurants we have ever been at...ever! My wife and I were celebrating our 46th anniversary trip to Maui and the staff... More

Delicious seafood, great service, ambience even at lunchtime. Two walls of framed celebrity photos--those who have eaten there!

We stopped on our way out of Hana. Restaurant has great atmosphere - it's a very cool looking place. I'm not a fish eater, but I thought the good was great. Service is a bit slow - you don't get a menu until after you've been sitting for a bit. And it's expensive for what you get. But it's a... More

The meals (lunch) we had were as good as any we have had anywhere. We had two seafood dishes - - - anagi (I think I got that right) and mahi mahi. The creations were admirable, beautifully presented, and a perfect way to end up our trip to Maui before we went to the airport for our late afternoon flight... More

We had such great food while visiting Maui and this was our absolute favorite of them all. It is pricey but no more than a nice restaurant at home-expect entrees to be 30's to 50's. Beautiful view of the beach from most areas. The service was excellent and every dish bursting with flavor. The drinks were also superb as well... More

This is a great restaurant for lunch or dinner. It is considerably expensive so be prepared and just enjoy your holiday. The setting is right by the ocean. The service is excellent. The food is fresh caught seafood and all prepared in creative and great ways. It is very near the airport and a great place to start or finish... More

Open-air restaurant with spectacular views of the ocean. Make sure to book a reservation so you can get a table by the window. The food is magnificent, well worth the price. We like to get the wasabi-encrusted calamari as an appetizer, and the Plantation Punch cocktail is my all time favorite. Perfect place for honeymooners and families with older children.... More
