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.

We crossed the island early and left a lot of baggage in the office while we went to a late lunch. The office staff was amazing and called us when the two rooms were available and put all of our luggage in "Malolo". Once we returned to the property they moved part of our luggage to our other room "Ahi".... More

Mama's Fish House restaurant was highly recommended by several friends/colleagues familiar with Maui and we dutifully made dinner reservations for the first night of our vacation. Since our flight from L.A. didn't arrive until early evening, we decided to splurge and spend the almost $800 for a single night in one of the Inn's beachfront cottages so we could rest... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Garden Cottage... great Hawaiian decor... lots of amenities... VERY comfortable... close to washer and dryer that we used... easy/peasy. The check-in was lovely and we were greeted by a friendly staff. Shower was nice. Jalousie windows were beautiful and functional! OK... we watched a bit of TV to relax and the picture was great....

We had a wonderful stay at Mama's Fish House. Colette at the front desk made us feel welcome. We had a beautiful view. It was peaceful. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils you could want, along with ziploc bags and tin foil. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

For the past 20 years we have been enjoying Mama's. When our boys were little we would make a half day of it. Playing on the beach, watching the kite surfing and having the best lunch imaginable. Always fresh seafood (with the fisherman's name that caught it) a great wine list, beautiful environment, Mama does it best. Reservations needed. Aloha

Even though I live on Maui, I have not had the fortune of staying at the Inn. It was extremely relaxing, beautiful and peaceful!!! If you have an opportunity to stay here… It is a must!! And of course you have to have dinner at Mamas Fish House!! Best restaurant on Maui, hands-down! My father was kind enough to surprise... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Inn at Mama's Fish House for many years. Lisa was kind to introduce us to the recently remodeled Opakapaka cottage on the second floor of the cottage directly next door to the restaurant. We were literally 25 yards from the shore. The unit has a fantastic feature which consists of cantilevered... More

This is a cool place to stay up in the Paia area. Obviously it's adjacent to Mama's Fish House, a mediocre restaurant. KIDDING! This is the third year we've spent the last night or two on our trips to Maui. This year, we were recognized for a milestone anniversary at both the Inn and at the restaurant. This place is... More

We stayed in the Opah Cottage and it was charm personified. The bathroom was huge with a separate walk in shower and a jetted tub that was surrounded by an arch of tile and a tile mountain mural as a backdrop. There were two sinks in a large counter area with all of the amenities one could want. The main... More

Called, "The Hawaii of your dreams!" By Sunset Magazine, the Inn at Mama's Fish House is just steps away from the ocean on a secluded white sand beach. Providing the same warmth and charm you'll find in our award-winning restaurant, each cottage embodies traditional elements of Polynesian decor, local wood working, spectacular flower arrangements, and beautiful artwork. The casual comfort of the Inn at Mama's Fish House exemplifies the Aloha spirit of Maui. ... more   less
