The location is spectacular! Best to dine at 6 or 6:30 so you can fully appreciate the location before darkness falls. The food was beyond excellent. Our server Autumn was subregion - knowledgeable, attentive but not pushy. We totally enjoyed our evening and very happy we arrived early to take in the views. Everything was SPECIAL.

This was the happiest surprise of our trip! We were headed back from Hana and decided to try Mama's! Man were we thrilled we did! The setting is absolutely magnificent! the water is so many shades of blue, turtles swimming all around the shore, palm trees sloped like a bench for beautiful pictures, people wearing Hawaiian prints, Hawaiian music. We... More

This was highly recommended from friends and a must do! My daughter made reservations months in advance of my son's wedding. The atmosphere was amazing - we had a front row seat in the restaurant to a spectacular sunset. While we waited we got to see a sea turtle coming up on the beach. Food was fabulous and everyone must... More

I was really leery to go here for lunch based on the reviews I've heard but for people who truly appreciate good food, artfully created, this is your spot. We went for lunch and arrived before 11am with no reservation and had one of the best tables in the house. NOTE: ask for the off-menu items. We had a coconut... More

From the friendly greeting at valet parking and the first reception then down the path to the second group who actually seat, you feel welcomed​. Attentive service, incredible​ decor, amazing drinks, and superb right out of the... More

Returned for late lunch prior to our late evening return flight to Dallas. We had fond memories of our initial visit 25 years ago. Our friends had never dined their before although they have been coming to Maui for over twenty years. We enjoyed cocktails during a short wait to get seated for our 2:00 PM reservation. Floral arrangements were... More

If your dream trip to Maui includes having a remarkable meal in a memorable location, then go to Mama's Fish House. Mama's is our Maui must-have when we visit and you will walk away saying this is one of the best meals you've ever had. The fish is fresh, caught by local fishermen and prepared perfectly. My favorite is the... More

A worthy stop but a little price gougie on drinks and salads. They accommodated my wife being a vegitarian by spicing up her tempur. The setting is unbelievable and surroundings are worth the bit extra that you'll pay.
