Mama's Fish House is about a mile west of Paia on the coast. It's a great venue... Classic Hawaiian feel. The Inn was a positive surprise. I'd been here before... Maybe 6 years ago, and it was basic, but very spacious. It has its own parking space, which is key on this part of the coast. Since that last trip... More

The mahi stuffed with crab was delish! The coconut curry dish was the best we have had and the dessert was amazing (chocolate pie) the drinks were a perfect balance... Great service, beautiful views and even better food and drinks! Do not miss out on this treasure!!! Make reservations well in advance and it enjoy all Mama has to offer!

We've visited Mama's, Hana and Maui many times. It's a real treat to go directly from the airport for a terrific meal before you head up the road to Hana. This trip, we decided to spend the nite in one of Mama's cottages, have a relaxing dinner and head up to Hana early the next morning. Turned out to be... More

Excellent attention to details. Very quiet location, spectacular view of the North Shore. Great location to see the non-resort side of Maui. Would definitely return. Restaurant is outstanding, they really took care of us for our 35th anniversary.

We had a beautiful apartment on the second floor. Below us, is another apartment. They had a terrace that gave them a wonderful view towards the palm trees and the sea. We had a large veranda above the apartment below which gave us a nice view to the sea and the grounds of Mama's Fish House. There is some grass... More

My husband, 13 year old son and I stayed in the Manini Cottage, one of the one bedroom deluxe garden cottages. We had 3 other groups of friends staying in other cottages and so got to see through a few. What we loved most about ours was the outdoor space, firstly in our private front courtyard with a large table... More

This is one my top five spots in the world to dine at. It was recommended to me by a friend who has traveled extensively as have I. We were not able to get an evening reservation as I didn't call until 5 days before I planned to dine here. That was a blessing as they serve the same menus... More

I stayed in the Lehi - the small studio for a couple of nights. The staff was super friendly and the studio was spacious and clean. There was a dedicated parking spot right in front. No ocean views, but close to the beach in front of Mama's. My original plan was to get up early & drive to Hana, but... More

The restaurant has excellent views and the food was really good. However, spending $200 for lunch for a family of four is just way too steep for what we ordered. I can only imagine what dinner would have been. Honestly not worth the money in my opinion.
