Mama's used to be our favorite restaurant. Over time, it has become so busy, crowded and stuffy, that for the prices, we have found other places with food that is just as good. I have to say, that the Black Pearl for dessert is second to none. That being said, they are so busy now, you cannot show up without... More

By far the best overall Seafood Restaurant I've ever experienced. The setting, the ambiance, the service and the food, OVER THE TOP! This is a must while on Maui. Any menu item you choose will be the finest food you've ever eaten! We really splurged with wine, appetizer, entree and Ceme brûlée for dessert, and we NEVER order dessert. Parking... More

My husband and I had such a wonderful dining experience at Mama's Fish House this past valentines day. They even had a beautiful note on the table because it was our honeymoon. The food was AMAZING, our waiter was friendly and the view was beautiful. The only negative was when we handed our valet $10 Canadian as a tip and... More

The setting is gorgeous as well with all the tables having great views. The food was lovely and generous; however found it quite pricey... More

We have been dining at Mama's for years and a trip to Maui would not be complete without a meal there. We were a party of ten this past week, and although they could not accommodate us all at one table, we were seated at two tables next to each other. The setting and decor are as beautiful as the...

Wewent here based on the reviews of others. We knew prior to arriving that the prices were high, but so were our expectations. The restaurant was beautiful as was the ambiance and view. We ordered the fish soup and steamed clams. Both were good. Our entrees included stuffed mahi mahi, papio, boullibase and curried seafood. The curried seafood and papio... More

We went for dinner here with good friends - it was wonderful. The food was excellent and the view as well. It is expensive but worth it and recommend it for a great dinner.

Our view was gorgeous, our food was delicious and the sommolier helped us navigate the wine list to a lovely Pinot. Our service was frightfully slow but with so much to enjoy, we tried not to notice.
