We have traveled all over the US, England, France, Italy and Spain and the meal we had at Mama's was by far the best. Atmosphere, service and food was 10/10. Kaipo was our server and execeded expections. If your on Maui you need to eat at Mama's.

I know that MAMA's fish house is among the or maybe the best restaurant in Maui but very expensive for locals. Great restaurant and one of the best service we had.

Yes it is expensive but the food, service and amazing setting are all worth it. I would recommend you get there early to enjoy the beautiful beach setting and palm tree perfect for picture taking. The service is top notch and they even gave me a beautiful lei and card congratulating us on our anniversary.

Very high prices for everything on the menu, however the food, service, and ambiance is excellent. Make sure the men in your group aren't wearing sleeveless shirts, or you will have to done a loner tee shirt.

Everything was first-class--the food, the view out to the ocean, the ambiance, the decor, and our server (Becky). Make a reservation as soon as possible before your visit to Maui, as this place is very popular (justifiably), and it is difficult if not impossible to book at the last minute.

This restaurant was recommended by one of my friend and we decided to go on our last night in Maui. At first my boyfriend and skeptical due to the hype and the price, but he was convinced at the end of the meal. We had the crab cake appetizer, I had the mahi mahi; it was so good! Will def... More

Definitely lived up to all they hype. Atmosphere was great- felt like you were in old school Maui. Good- Delish! We both had the Tuna special. Best tuna we have ever tasted...and we eat a lot of fresh tuna living on the coast of NC. A must if in Maui!

Finally made it after so many said "you must go". Food and drinks were great, but ridiculously priced for the quantity you get. Staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Don't forget to stop by the beach just north to view the surfers and windsurfers. It's one of the most popular venues for them, there were 20 foot waves and we... More

Mama's is a unique experience. Terrific food, wonderful staff, beautiful location and interior. Expensive, but one of those indulgent splurges that ends up feeling really good. The staff is very thorough about explaining each dish. Fish is caught the same day and the menu will tell you who caught it and where. The Hibiscus, lime, ginger beer drink without alcohol... More
