Although I am not a fish "lover", I enjoyed my experience last year at Mama's to go back next month on our annual trip to Maui. Stay tuned? Great ambiance, excellent service, great Hawaiian themed bar, Charming but very expensive

I knew the place was expensive, I knew the service was perfect and I knew the food was the best on Maui when I made our reservation. Isn't that why to go? We were delighted with it all, once again.

We only had a drink at Mama's because of the time when we went by it. Great view and setting, very busy. I think they take reservations. Would like to eat there next time. Staff seemed friendly and efficient.

Our concierge said this was her favorite restaurant on Maui. Now we know why. It's a little out of the way from all the commotion of the west coast, but friends had spent some time in Paia and made some recommendations, so we took the trip. We hadn't made reservations, as we weren't sure how the day would go. In... More

We've been to Mama's Fish House 5 times. 4 times for dinner and once for lunch. The food is amazing and the service was great. I can't wait to go back.

We went for my wife and daughters birthday, (yes they share a birthday). decor and atmosphere where amazing, but the food and service where not! Let me tell you I know good food, especially fish, and this is not it! If I pay $50 for a piece of ahi sashimi it had better be from a good quality fish and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this charmingly decorated, beach house themed restaurant. The food and service were great. The Hawaiian Luau entree and tropical fruit crisp were superb. This was our favorite dining experience on Maui- even with the rain tapping away on the roof.

What a fun excursion to drive to Mamma's Fish House and feel part of an experience. There is a quirkiness to the place. Cute and charming island decor. Fun to sit at the bar for a signature cocktail, before lunch. Then just lounge and take it easy, Hawaii style. The good was great. The flavors were fresh and tasty. Our... More

You don't go to Hawaii for the food. Period. This is supposedly the best in Maui. It is beautiful and the service is professional. The food is good for Hawaii. But it's extremely expensive and I would have preferred to save the money and eaten at a standard beachfront place with a view of the sunset. The difference in the... More
