We wondered if our second trip to Mama's would be as wonderful as our first a year ago ... and indeed it was. This time we were with a group of 13, and although we were warned that seating for this number is not guaranteed together, they were able to seat us at two tables beside each other. The food...

It was my birthday and i felt i was treated like a Queen.. The food was beyond excellent. The service was over the top excellent. The little touches of hawaiiana around the restaurant were beautiful.. If coming from the airport area make sure and turn AFTER the first sign you see... it can be hard to see.. it says "Mama's...

Two dinner trips on latest visit to Maui 45ish minute drive from Wailea (watch for pedestrian crossings in Paia, they have the right of way) Awesome food, awesome service, awesome sunset view Knowledgeable and attentive service, without being stuffy Very expensive, but hard to find a better experience

Probably one of the best seafood restaurants I have been to worldwide. Some say it's expensive, but considering the excellence of service, atmosphere and food, it's an absolute bargin. This is a french style infused Hawaiian resturant. All the fish is super fresh, daily caught, so there is no fishy smell or taste, everything on the menu is wonderful. Listen... More

A great, high-end restaurant with beautiful surroundings and a very good menu. Our server (Mike) was exceptional and did an excellent job describing the menu without the tasteless hard sell that sometimes is the norm at these places. The highlights were the raw appetizers which was imaginatively prepared and presented extremely well. A real highlight for a trip to Maui.

Visited Mama's for a pre wedding dinner with my parents. The seafood is deliciously fresh, drinks are deadly and the black pearl dessert is a must try. Definitely worth the extra money to visit this restaurant. Make sure to make resos in advance and try to ask for a table with a view and have dinner while the sun is... More

Great famous restaurant. Best to get reserves a week or two out. The entire restaurant is amazing in lay-out, appointments and detail. The staff is amazing and knowledgeable. The food...is excellent. I have never had a bad meal, but once had a late seating about an hour past my reservation. We were at the back bar, so we were fully... More
