My husband made a reservation here tonight as part of our anniversary trip to Hawaii (Oct 2014). We arrived and passed our car off to the waiting valet personnel. We were seated and received our drink orders promptly and there was a card congratulating us waiting at our table. We also received a fresh lei that the waiter said Mama... More

Mama's fish house was the perfect place to end our 3 day trip on the island of Maui. Throughout our whole trip I heard nothing but great things about this restaurant from different people on different excursions ! One tip is to make your dinner reservations ahead of time !!! September is a slower time for the islands and we... More

First, let's get one issue out of away. Mama's is not cheap (entrees can be $50) and some people may not feel they are getting their money's worth. However, from our perspective, it was a five-star experience and a splurge while on our babymoon. The restaurant is located just outside of Paia (15-20 mins from Kahului airport); and by the... More

Dinner at Mamas was the absolute best food that has ever crossed my lips!! That alone was worth the 11 hour plane ride! The mahi mahi was to die for. And the Tahitian Black Pearl dessert will make you smack your own mama! The server was delightful and well informed on the menu selections. The private beach was breathtaking to... More

located just outside village of Paia, a few turns are there you are. Valet parking only. Everything we ordered was good. Wine list is not great, but it's well adapted to the menu. Nice decor, very good service, but was a little slow to start. Maybe its because we were in between 2 shifts. The only opening we could get... More

This place is an absolute must when visiting Maui. Amazing food, atmosphere, and wait staff. We had the Ahi coated in panko and the Mahimahi w/stuffed crab/lobster. It was exquisite. We didn't make reservations. They told us the wait would be 40 min, but they found us a table before we even sat down. It's about 20 min from the... More

Incredible. The seafood is hand-caught and the menu lists the fishermen (all men when I was there) who caught them. We started with a delicious poke and lovely hamachi carpaccio. After my husband ordered the mahi-mahi with lobster and crab encrusted in macadamia nuts (a house special), I had to order something else - and am glad I did. The... More

My husband and I live on oahu and were visiting Maui and have always wanted to eat here. We went for lunch on our last day since it's close to the airport. The Parking lot is small but they offer free vallet. It's a beautiful beach setting and the restaurant is open air with beautiful views and beautiful gardens. We... More

We went during lunch time which was beautiful, I think most people go for dinner which is unfortunate cause they can't see just how beautiful the landscape is. We go the tuna app (amazing) and a crab cake (scale 1-10 ... 7) I got cerviche.. (amazing) and my husband got the pork tenerloin (AMAZING). Hope that helps ENJOY!

I can not speak highly enough about Mama's Fish House. Is it expensive? Yes, but it is so worth it. The setting is absolutely stunning, the service impeccable and the food to die for. We shared the macadamia Crab cakes with fire and ice relish for starters and they were so delicious and about 95% crab. My husband had the... More
