We have been to Mamas fish house at least twice , every time we come to Maui. We started this ritual 20 years ago and being a foodie ,Mamas fish house is one of the main reasons we go back to Maui every year.It has stayed consistently great over the last 20 years that we have visited.

Fantastic restaurant with a beautiful view. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. I must admit that I expected a tourist trap, but I was very wrong. It was the best meal we had while in Maui. The traditional Hawaiian platter was amazing. Make reservations well in advance .

We had a lot of good food in Maui, and Mama's was right at the top of the list. It is so big and crowded we were fearful that our experience was going to be like eating at Cinderella's castle at the Magic Kingdom - all show and no go on the food. We were wrong. The food was outstanding,... More

Best food in all Hawaii. Fish is always fresh and prepares to perfection. Great date night venue as you will want to take your time. Savor the experience, food and drink. Pricy but well worth it. A little off the tourist radar, local ambiance and service.

I make it a point to have a meal at Mama's every time I'm on Maui. I very much dislike fish, but I could eat the seafood dishes these folks prepare every night. To start with, the ocean view you are presented with upon arrival is amazing. The free valet parking staff always greet you promptly and professionally and you... More
