Everyone kept telling us we needed to eat at Momma's. We looked at their menu on line and almost did not go. That would have been a big mistake. It is a little pricey, but it is wonderful. The best mahi ever !!!

If I could give this restaurant 10 stars I would. I made our reservation a month and a half before our vacation and still could only get a 7:30 pm reservation. Ate here 14 years ago and it was as good, if not better, than what we remembered. We ate here on our last night of a one week vacation... More

Definitely receive. Service was great. Free valet parking. Get there a little early because there is a nice beach to take pictures at. Food was phenomenal.

Expensive, but wow. Food was extremely good. Mai Tai's were excellent. Very expensive but worth it as a one time splurge.

For my job, I have had the pleasure of being at quite a few high-end and expensive dining venues. This time, it was personal. It was for my anniversary with my wife (along with a visit to Maui). We were greeted with a card at our table welcoming us, in Hawaiian, for our anniversary and given an impromptu lei ceremony... More

Stopped by on way back from drive to Hana! Looks like a neighborhood joint. Nothing fancy but was busy and music playing was good! My husband had grilled snapper and it was a big portion and tasty. I had the fried shrimp with fries. That was good too with a large portion. Seating is rows of picnic tables and very... More

I wish we could have afforded to eat here every day of our vacation! What a wonderful way to end our stay on Maui. From the stunning location, to decor, to the service, and of course the amazing food, this is by far one of the best finds on Maui. Worth every penny! Go immediately!

I thought this was going to be over $300 for two people, we walked out under $200. Had cocktails, appetizers, entree and free ice cream on account of a birthday. Amazing table by the ocean. Food was pretty good, not the best I ever ate, go for the view and get puppies' and drinks if you are really concerned about... More

Mamas is beautiful, everything is uplifted by the beauty of the actual restaurant and decor. We had a slight issue on arrival, we had booked over the phone a week prior and the confirmed dates read back to us were correct, but on arrival were told our reservation had been entered for a date after we were due to have...

This is one of the top 3 places to visit while on Maui. The prices are a little high...but once you take your first bite you will forget all about that. The food was amazing, the view was great and the service was top notch. I hope to be able to visit again soon.
