“A must visit restaurant in Maui!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This restaurant came highly recommended to us by numerous people so we felt it was a MUST when we vacationed in Maui. We weren't disappointed. Let me start with Reservations are a MUST, and last minute doesn't happen. Plan ahead. Even with reservations you will have a small wait.
We had a party of 6 and everyone raved about the choices made on what to eat. I loved the Macadamia Nut Crab Cakes as an appetizer then the Mahimahi Stuffed with lobster and crab and baked in a macadamia nut crust. It was unbelievable! Rounding out my dinner was the perfect desert...Polynesian Black Pearl. A MUST!!! So save room.
We celebrated 2 Birthday's, 2 College Graduations & a 2nd Wedding Anniversary the night we went and the service was over the top perfect. Extensive wine list was nice. The prices were on the higher side so be prepared for an expensive meal....but to all of us we felt it was worth it.
The setting and ambiance of this restaurant was very charming.

“The best on Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This restaurant never fails to serve up fresh, unique and quality dishes. While it is expensive, it is WELL worth it. The ambience is old Hawaii with the location, ambiance and decor setting the stage for a wonderful Hawaiian meal. Located close to the airport, eat here before you fly out and the memory will last all the way home.

It was everything we were told and more! This was the best meal we had throughout our honeymoon. Food was fabulous, service fantastic, and ambiance perfect for a romantic Hawaiian night. Worth every penny!!

“Overrated and expensive”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

The decor is nice but you could visit the beach without eating at the restaurant. The food is overpriced.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

When we were in Maui on vacation for our 22nd anniversary someone told us that we should go to Mama's Fish House for our anniversary and that we wouldn't be disappointed. They were right, from the moment we were greeted with valet parking and the walk down the Gecko path to the restaurant it was amazing. The MaiTai's were out of this world, we were seated at our table and there was a personalized card wishing us a happy anniversary. That was a nice touch. I had an amazing Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and lobster, it was awesome my wife had another fish i can't remember what it was but it was just as amazing the desert was a crumb cake with icecream. My wife said the chocalate martini was one of the best she has ever had. I will never miss out on Mama's when I vacation in Maui. Our waiter was a young hawaiian guy and he was probably the best waiter I have ever had. Awesome!!!
