The best part is the feel of old Hawaii, the lavish surroundings and gracious attentiveness of the staff. Their most famous dish is succulent Macadamia Nut Mahi Mahi (excellent). All fish is caught fresh that day. Expensive, but you will remember the experience, not the price. Stroll along the private beach and take photos in the catamaran. It is a world apart, a blessed island oasis that captures the Hawaiian charm of olden days.

Very worth the beautiful 35 minute drive from Lahaina. Food is incredible and the staff is extremely wecoming and professional. Has it's own beach and beautiful grounds. Very nice atmosphere all the way around. You couldn't possibly regret it.

This place really lives up to the hype. Its expensive, sure, but well well worth it. The server was so insanely polite at one point i thought he was kind of putting me on, but no. thats how they act and treat their customers. With respect. The food was superb. Since they knew it was our honeymoon they gave my wife a very pretty floral lei (this was a serious lei) compliments of the house. They also gave us a comp dessert tray as well as having a special thank you note on the table waiting for us when we got there. They sat us right next to the window where we could watch the fire from the tiki torches and listen to the sounds of the crashing ocean.

If you are on that side of Maui and don't at least stop in for a drink, you missed the boat! (literally, they have a giant boat by the entrance, you cant miss it)

First off, this place books up fast. Make reservations before you begin your travel if you can. Off tourist season frees the place up for locals but it'll be easier to get a table then. Next up, we got in on reservations once and walk-in twice. They get cancellations, so it is possible to walk-in, we felt pretty lucky when we did though (table for 4). The seafood here could not be any fresher unless the restaurant was onboard the fishing boat. The dishes, the sauces, the preparations make this the single best seafood restaurant I have ever dined in. The prices are high, but you will likely never find a better seafood restaurant than Mama's Fish House. Splurge and try this place, I think you agree, it is delicious.
