We have only been to Mama's twice but we were more than impressed each time. We recommend reservations. Can't beat the amazing location. Service is impeccable. Fish is served shortly after being caught somewhere off the island.Can you get fresher? We think Mama's is the best restaurant hands down on Maui.

We had amazing food, amazing service at eye popping prices. Be prepared to make reservations at least a few days in advance and bring your credit card. Mama's has great food, great atmosphere. All worth every penny. The reasons I'm giving 4 stars is for no a/c, it is outdoor seating, you should know up front, flys and birds. The flys were bothersome the day we went. The staff says that is not typical. Definitely will repeat every trip to Maui.

Every time I'm on Maui I insist we stop at least once for dinner and once for lunch at Mama's. From the second you walk down the hill and see the cove, to the super friendly hostesses dressed in Hawaiiana garb, the amazing teak wood furniture and the sprawling dining room that seems to go on and on... it's like the best of old and new Hawaii all rolled into one.

I LOVE the fact that the restaurant prints the name of the fisherman AND their vessel that caught EACH item from Hawaiian waters, plus where the fish was caught. It's amazing—and I've heard dozens of other restaurants are copying the Mama's "way—even though they've been doing it for almost 40 years!

Fish preparations are both classic (tahitian ceviche served in a young coconut is a stand out) and new school. The chef is a total all-star, Im not sure how he executes such refined platings considering how many people dine there every day! Just amazing.

And the wine list is so thoughtfully paired with the dishes, it shows their level of commitment. I love it here.

We went out for a fun evening with friends to Mamas Fish House. Even though it was hard to get reservations, we managed to get in early. The staff was very friendly and greeted us with smiles. The food was very delicious and I would recommend this to everyone if they are looking for excellent food.
