What an amazing view from Mama's! The view that we had from our table looked "picture perfect" - so much like a postcard! Our waitress was very personable and she made our lunch very enjoyable. The service was impeccable - the wait staff didn't let our water glasses get below half before they were back filling the glasses up again. The food was outstanding and had a beautiful presentation! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and plan on visiting again the next time we are in Maui.

By far the best place we ate during our trip to Maui. It is a little expensive, but well worth it. We were there at sunset and it was perfect. Service was great and food was amazing. Can't wait to go again!

What a beautiful place. Its perfectly located on its own beach and just walking on the grounds is a treat. The employees, from the parking lot guys to the waiters, were all very nice. Mamas has large windows that open onto the beach, soft lighting and is spotlessly clean. And then there's the food-yummy nummy. It can be expensive but its worth it.

We've been to Mama's several times on past trips but couldn't get a table last time we were on Maui so I called and made a reservation as soon as we booked the trip several months out. It was a huge let down. The ambiance we loved so much is gone - replaced by at least double the number of tables and three times the lights. We should have left but we couldn't bring ourselves to give up on it. Started with the shrimp won ton. Was expecting a culinary delight but it was just two over breaded fried shrimp standing on a bed of something and they were very tough. Menu selections are now boring and trendy. We didn't see much that seemed inspired by the islands or inspired at all. I know we each ordered different fish but I already can't remember what kind or the spin on the dish. Pile of rice. Chunk of fish on top. Some color sprinkled on it. Tasted the way it looked. Bland. I still remember what we had when we first went there in 2004. Mama's you've changed. I'm sorry - I don't think we'll see you again :-(

What a nice treat this restaurant was for our anniversary. We were in Maui on vacation and chose Mama's Fish House as a place to go with our adult children to celebrate. We were greeted with a beautiful view and a table that allowed us to take in that view. The service was wonderful and the food, delicious. While the cost is somewhat higher than other restaurants on the island, it was well worth it for our special occasion.
