“New favorite restaurant ever”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Oh. My. Gosh!!! Beautiful beach, fabulous food, and wonderful service. What more could you possibly ask? If you go to Maui, please make time to go to the wonderful little town of Paia (where the hippie culture is alive and well) and have a special night at Mama's. It is well worth the drive and the expense. Be sure to call ahead for a reservation because this place is much in demand. The sunset view is spectacular over the the beautiful beach, so take a camera and get a picture with your sweety and the beautiful scenery. We're going back again before we leave the island. Just might have to order those crab cakes again, too. Yum!

“Favorite place to eat in Maui!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Freshest local catch! Mama's thoughtfully credits local fisherman for the catch available on their menu! The preparations are superb! Mama's offers all the island romance a traveler dreams of when visiting the Hawaiian islands. The decor is lovely and elegant! I recommend calling in advance for a reservation and requesting a table along the windows! Everything on the menu is decandent and delicious!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This restaurant is absolutely fabulous. The menu is just unbelievable and they offer great drinks and wine options. I was impressed to see the unique decor, flower arrangements and how even the china is all composed of specialty plates all made in Hawaii.

We had a bit of a wait even though we were there on time for our reservation. From valet parking to waiters and the hostesses, all employees were extremely friendly and engaging.

Whether here for brunch or dinner....you're guaranteed a great experience.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We went to Mama's thinking it would be good. We were wrong...it was GREAT! This was the best fish I have ever had. They list the name of the fisherman and where the fish was caught under each entree on the menu. If you are in Maui, eat here. It is expensive, but worth it!! Make reservations ahead of time... They are on opentable.
