My wife and I went there for a great dinner and heard nothing but great things and Mama's lived up to the lofty expectations. They left a nice note on our table to recognize that we were there for our honeymoon and put us in a table with a great view of the water. The appetizers were really good and my wife loved her Sashimi. For the main course, I had the famous Macadamia Encrusted Stuffed Mahimahi with Crabmeat and Lobster and it did not disappoint. My wife loved her Curry Fish entree. The great thing about her dish is they included four spoons with different ingredients that could be added for the dish which included homemade Mango Chutney and Bananas from Hana. Overall, the meal was outstanding. Tip: Make a reservation to guarantee a table and get there before sunset to watch a beautiful sight.

This was our second visit to Mama’s and I can say we have not been disappointed yet. The service is very prompt without feeling hurried to leave. Our waiter was very good and even had helpful insights, good and bad, about some of the menu options. My mahi was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Mama’s is a bit on the pricey side but is worth it. Our dining experience was a very enjoyable one overall and plan to visit the next time we’re on Maui.

This place was recommended as a must by everyone we know, and so we made reservations the morning of, and headed there for a late lunch. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty, including the kids meals items like the coconut shrimp and the grilled mahi. The adult meals were very impressive, the mixture of flavors was delightful. I had Mahi grilled in Ti leaf with mango salsa and coconut rice. Delicious! It is definitely on the expensive side, but at least the service and food make up for that
Every table in the restaurant has some view of the beautiful beach. I would definitely come back next time we're in Maui.

Fabulous! From the view to the service to the food.
Valet parking is convenient (and necessary) thank you!

I recommend a reservation, even for lunch. Seating by the open wall will give you a spectacular view of the grounds and ocean.

Even if you are staying in the west or south Maui, take a trip to Mama's.

We came back here after 6 years when we were in Maui last. Sure it was the most expensive meal and drinks we had in our entire 2 weeks in Hawaii but the service, ambiance, Mai Tais and food are all wonderful. They take such care in service including leis for the 2 couples who were celebrating their anniversaries and a bead necklace for one of the men celebrating his birthday. We shared a few appetizers including the lobster guacomole (yum), wasabi calamari (could have used a bit more bite) and the crab cakes. All delicious and fresh 4 of us had their signature dish, stuffed mahi mahi with lobster and crab (huge portions) and two their duck. All excellent choices. If anything their desserts could be a bit more creative but overall a terrific evening again.
