“Mama's Fish House-YUM!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I cannot say enough about this place! The food is unbelievable and the view is breathtaking! We had Ahi Poke for an appetizer (special that day) along with two fish dishes. It was the freshest seafood I have ever eaten and the fish was cooked perfectly. As the other reviewers suggest, it is pricey but worth it for a special treat!

“Awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This restaurant was our splurge on our recent trip to Maui. It is a very nicely decorated and the tables are all facing the ocean with an ocean view. It is quite pricey but we were very happy that we spent the money on awesome food and drink. The wait staff is very friendly and eager to answer any questions you might have about the menu. Reservations are a must and make them as soon as you arrive on the island as they do fill up fast. Will definitely be going again.

“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a dinner reservation for 6pm just in time for sunset, the surroundings were just amazing. We could see the sunset and beach from out table and it was just breathtaking.

The service was top-notch. They knew it was a birthday dinner and they had a little card on the table that said happy birthday with my name already printed on the card. The waitress was very nice and explained all our questions.

The food was just so tasty and fresh, we each had apps, salad, and entrée and each one of them better than the next. The manager even came over to wish me a happy birthday. They all made it very special.

It was a bit $$ but it was certainly worth it!
Don'y miss Mama's on your stay, it really does live up to it's reputation.

“Mama's Fish House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Mama's Fish House takes you back in time to old Hawaii. The tables are arranged so that everyone has an ocean view. Some tables are next to the open windows with views of the ocean.

Mama's is definitely a tourist attraction. The food and cocktails are delicious although very pricey.

“Fantastically wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

OK, yes it is quite pricey. But it will be the best bang for your buck in every way. The expansive open to the air dining rooms have a charm that can't be beat. The wait staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. A full menu, offers something special for every taste. Even when crowded the noise level was not intrusive. You absolutely have to try the fresh Big Island poi, it's a complimentary item served with your meal. Definitely save room for dessert. Reservations are definitely recommended. Lovely location and has been in existence on Maui for many years. Whether celebrating a special occasion or just looking for a unique dining experience you will not be disappointed. Hassle free valet parking. Definitely bring your camera and take photos on the lovely grounds. Be warned however, don't eat anything before you go. Save room for all the delightful temptations available on the Mama's menu.
