Ocean front views, fun setting but the food..oh the food! Went for lunch so we wouldn't have to make the drive in the dark from Ka'anapli. The crab guacamole was divine as was the ahi. Certainly deserves its reputation. Reservations a must. Crashing surf right outside the door. Don't miss it.

My family and I went to Hawaii for a special birthday. My daughter and her husband gave my husband and I a gift certificate for this fabulous restaurant. It was absolutely delicious and worth the drive to Paia.

We went to celebrate my Mom's 66th birthday and I was a little worried bringing my 3 yr old but the staff went out of their way to keep him entertained so we could enjoy a wonderful evening. The food was pricey but for a special occasion it was worth it. The kids menu was limited it only had fish... More

I have had bad experiences when eating fish in the past, so I am cautious. This is the place to eat fish. Definitely. I had the mahi mahi stuffed with red snapper - amazing. Terrific (and enormous) mai tai. Superb desserts. The food here is expensive but more than worth it. And the service is just lovely.

After reading all of the amazing reviews for Mama's, we put the restaurant on our list as a must do. We had made reservations a week or so prior. We arrived earlier then expected, checked in with the hostess, and were accommodated within 15 minutes of arriving. We had some delicious drinks and ordered the crusted stuffed mahi mahi. It...

The attention to detail does not go unnoticed; the service here is fantastic, food is top of the line and the location is unmatched. I read reviews prior to our visit to Maui and didn't quite "get" what made Mama's so special. It just happened that one of our tour guides was a cook a Mama's for many years and... More
