Fabulous Venue in Paia

This is our 2nd visit to Maui in 8 months and this was our 2nd time visiting Mama's Fish House! We fell in love with the restaurant and the location on the beach. The wonderful breeze from the ocean makes your Maui stay memorable. You have to visit!

Some of the best seafood I have ever had. Our server Eli had some excellent recommendations and has been with the restaurant for a long time. Ceviche and the Beef and papaya appetizer were out of this world. If you like good food you will not be disappointed. Up there in my books with Commanders Palace in New Orleans and... More

Mama's is beautiful and worth a visit but you will spend $$$ to enjoy this island gem. The food is very good and wait staff are attentive but not overbearing. I have "tried 'em all" and Mama's does make the best Mai Tai in all of Hawaii. You pay a hefty price but you will savor it as you drink... More

This was my personal favorite while visiting Maui. The ambiance, the view, the wonderful smells and fantastic service puts this place over the top. Book well in advance as they are always packed. Our server was very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. The host knew it was our anniversary week and congratulated us. We had a special card and flowers for... More

From the moment we checked in with the host, we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. We were a little early for our reservations so we found a place in the bar. We all ordered a cocktail but the waiter didn't even get a chance to put in our request before our table was ready. We were shown to... More

Everything was amazing, the setting was incredibly beautiful and scenic, very romantic as the sun was setting for dinner. The restaurant looked like everything you imagine a restaurant in Hawaii should look like. The macadamia nut crusted Mahi was out of this world! And the passion fruit creme brûlée was the perfect ending to the meal! Several special things included... More

If you like fish, this is the place to come. The menu changes every day, depending on what is fresh. They list all the fresh fish for the day along with the name of the person who caught it and where it was caught. Then it is prepared by experts, cooked exactly the way it should be, depending on the... More

Mama's fish house is superb. Don't let the prices intimidate you, the food is excellent. The menu lists where the fish came from and who caught it. The staff is great and the atmosphere is great as well. They will not do a group larger than 8, we had a group of ten so they accommodated us to two tables... More

It was really good food, just not the best meal we had while on Maui. It was expensive and you are paying for the view and really fresh seafood. Service was good and friendly. We went for dinner and it was a full house, so they are definitely doing something right. If you can, GO, it is worth your time... More

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. You've read all the reviews and they are spot on. Everything from the setting to the food was spectacular. Make reservations early. Pricey, but worth every penny.
