Perfect venue, perfect location, perfect food.

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.

When researching places to eat on Maui I read some really great things about Mamas. My daughter went there five years ago while on her honeymoon and confirmed all the good things people were saying. We new it wasn't going to be cheap but the minute we walked down the path down to the grounds I knew it was going... More

Be prepared to eat the best food in Maui. We went there twice and enjoyed it both times. The Panang curry was amazing.. So was the Mac nut crusted Mahi Mahi with crab and lobster (I don't even like crab or lobster). The fillet in papaya appetiser is a must! All flavours are wonderful. The coconut cake and creme brûlée... More

Dinner can be Spendy here ($50 +/- for entrees) but it is an experience not to be missed. This was my 3rd trip to Mama's (and first time for dinner) the location is magical, great beach setting, the restaurant is beautiful and the wait staff are very friendly. The menu changes, depending on the "catch of the day" with the... More

I don't know where to begin? The ambience and ocean / stunning beach with palm tree views are a sight to experience. I had the Mahi Mahi stuffed with lobster & crab (see photo) and my wife had the special pink salmon dish ( see photo) and each item was beyond delicious!! The Polynesian Black Pearl alone was worth the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic lunch in this unique setting. Local fishermen provide the freshest fish each morning and the menu is based on "the catch". Presentation is perfect and the service is excellent. I enjoyed a ginger dusted seared Ahi and my wife had the prawns. We shared a baby Romaine salad. The view is unmatched and... More

Step 1: arriving earlier to your reservation hour to enjoy the garden, the beach and the bar. Even you can go half a mile north to see the surfers. Try to get a table by the window and enjoy the dinner. We had fish, of course, and the local selection dishes, all great. We were celebrating our anniversary but the... More

The Mama's experience is one not to be missed! The atmosphere with the beautiful beach, the crude coverings, great staff and service team, unique drinks and incredible dishes make for a perfect evening. Your taste buds will be in paradise as well from your first bite of anything on the appetizer menu. The entrees are the freshest you can find... More
