“Classy gourmet seafood experience”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stopped by Mama's Fish House coming back from our road trip to Hana. It was probably one of the best seafood experience we've had in a restaurant. The ambiance was refined, classy yet still cozy. The staff was very friendly and the customer service was outstanding. The two must order dishes they have are:
Mahi mahi stuffed with lobster and crab, baked in macadamia nut crust; &
Opah, mahi mahi, and Ahi sauteed in panang curry and coconut milk

“A must visit restaurant in Maui!”
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”
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.

“Overrated and expensive”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

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