“A fabulous experiece all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Mama's is our only "must go to" restaurant on Maui. The setting is stunning inside and out, the wine selection indulgent and the food is fresh and spectacular. This trip we enjoyed the mahi mahi rolls, ahi sashimi salad (fresh and light), crab stuffed macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi and apple banana crisp All were lovely.

“What was I thinking?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

What was I thinking... not coming here earlier!
Wowwwww!!! This was incredible. From the food, to the service, to the location= AMAZING!
Everything came out so wonderfully delicious! And presentation of the food alone was unreal. Yeah, its expensive but you pay for what you get. They support local, organic farmers and fresh fish caught by fishermen the day of. Hello??? Where else offers ALL this -- with such a perfect location?? OF COURSE you're probably going to pay for it.
Also, I travel with family, so there is always atleast 10 minimum that go out to eat and we find it to be somewhat troublesome for most restaurants to accommidate our needs. Not Mama's tho.
Our waitress was phenominal. Talk about patient, kind, caring, attentive, and attention to detail. Nothing went un-noticed. She was so intuned. My family (my sisters, mostly) are so picky and particular and there was nothing they could do to frazzle our server. Not to mention how our kids loved her. You wouldn't think in a 2 hour time span someone could make such a connection with so many different personalites. Thank you TaNani for such an awesome experience. You definitely are such a Gem :) !

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We had a fabulous special occasion meal here. Everything about the place is quite stunning, the location, the décor and the food and service. Right from the valet parking we were treated with courtesy and warmth. The food is amazing- locally caught fish prepared in interesting ways.
We had a most enjoyable evening ending with a walk on the private beach under the stars.
Highly recommended for a first class dining experience.

“A visit to Maui is incomplete if Mama's is not part of the agenda.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We've been visiting Mama's Fish House since 1976 and will continue to look forward to our next visit. The food and location are incomparable. Yes, the price of the meal is "over the top", but well worth every penny. The freshness of the fish and the preparation and presentation are outstanding. Don't miss it.

“Lived up to stellar recommendations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Mama's had been recommended to me by friends who frequent Hawaii, who described it as the best restaurant they had ever been to in the islands. I was apprehensive, as it was a bit out of the way, but the food was fantastic, the service was good, and the views outside were spectacular. Definitely worth the visit.
