Loved everything about this place. Felt Hawaiian unlike many other tourist traps. Food and Service was excellent! Prices are on the high side but treat yourself!

Everyone tells you to go to Mama's Fish House...and that is not a lie!. It is a great little place in a semi-remote spot on the ocean (not hard to get to). Here are some tips before you go: -Book your reservation early...seating is very limited. And ask for an oceanfront view. Also, if you're celebrating something, tell them when... More

We went for dinner here on our last night. It would've been nice to go while there is still light out because it was so dark around the establishment. You could hear the crashing waves but would've been nice to see them. I ordered lobster and 3 came out! It was a lot but damn it was so tasty. For... More

The setting is spectacular, the service excellent, and the food was superb. We wanted to have a special dinner during our one week visit to Maui. My wife found this restaurant recommended on line and it lived up to all expectation. The open air seating and the view were remarkable. We recommend it highly!

Our grown kids took us to Mama's for our 40th anniversary. It is a bit out of the way, but from the moment we arrived they showed us incredible care. We went for lunch, which was a good choice because it allowed the grand kids to run around the lawn next to our table while waiting for food. There was... More

We went here last year and was amazing. We came to this restaurant in 2011 as well still outstanding. We are back in Hawaii but on the big island hoping I can find a great restaurant. The fish curry was something I dream about it was the most delicious lunch ever, get the pearl dessert the presentation is truly professional.

I am so, so glad I booked this based on several recommendations. The cost was a real question, and I'm so glad we ignored it. (It's as much as any excursion). Beautiful setting, exquisite service, deliciously prepared fish. We were so content when we left there. We tried to go again later in the week, but they were booked. Be... More

We were definetly not that impressed. The food is good but nothing that could justify the prices. There is a great view indeed but I still wasn't amazed by their food.
