“Great Food, Great View and Great Service”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. While it has gotten larger and refined the menu, it remains one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. Go for the food, stay for the view.

“good, not amazing”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Mama's was recommended to us by our hotel. I can definitely understand the appeal of the restaurant given that the view from our seats was absolutely beautiful. The food was good, but not as good as some other places we tried on Maui. The service was also lacking, our waiter sounded like he was reading from a script and rarely checked in on us. Our water glasses were empty for a good portion of the meal and it restaurant wasn't even completely full given we went later in the evening. Overall, the experience was good but did not live up to hype nor the cost.

“Best restaurant on Maui”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Go for lunch at 10:45. You'll get the best seat and view on Maui. Feels like a movie set with fantastic service and top of the line food. Expensive but no doubt thee best place to eat on the island.

“Stiil Great”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

I was a little skeptical as Mamas has become a worldwide destination for so many. However, it was truly excellent. I had the curry fish and my wife had the lobster stuffed mahi mahi. Both were crazy good. perfectly prepared and seasoned. We had a hard time getting in, even for lunch. The service was top notch and the servers well trained. My kids loved the sourdough bread. Mamas is very expensive. While very good, I think the average meal price is about $60.00 and with a kids meal we were still about 250 for 4 of us. No drinks.

“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

This was the splurge of our Hawaiian trip, and it was so worth it. The food was amazing! The location was superb, right on the beach, it was paradise. The our waitress was extremely knowledgable about the meals and very patient as we asked about all the different types of fish. You will not leave here unhappy, everything about Mama's Fish House was simply amazing, I would highly recommend this dinning location to anyone.
