We always go to Mama’s Fish House when in Maui. It’s a very sentimental place for us. Make reservations in advance, as in well before your trip to Maui if you’d like to have dinner. Lunch is also an option. Be sure to allow time...More

Well worth the hassle of getting there - about an hour’s drive from anywhere. Must have a reservation or it’s hopeless. What? No draft beer?!?! We thought they were kidding, but no joke. Prices are really high but great fun.

Service was on the high level from valet parking, reception and staff. Food , Fish is good and fresh. Only thing is road access is weird/tough in the night coming from the town and turning left to the restaurant.

Top notch haute cuisine on a beach front property that is beautiful! From the start to finish it's a great experience. There were two huge turtles basking on their private beach that day, too!

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. There are a lot of good choices for great meals on Maui but Mama’s never disappoints. My wife got the Tristan lobster and I had the daily fish special. Both excellent!

I think you will have no problem. We left items of value in our vehicle and had no problem. A tip is always a good idea.

Not to my knowledge. I did notice some people sharing entrees. Drinks ranch from $12-$20 and desserts about $16 on average. I hope this helps.

The best place is by the windows facing the ocean. The view is spectacular. Hopefully, you are eating when there is still some sunlight, so you can enjoy the view. Hard to see the ocean in the dark.
