“Worth the splurge”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is the place to go when celebrating something special. They treat you like kings. Reservations highly recommended. Be sure to let them know what you're celebrating. Food is fresh and delicious but a little pricey so we ordered two starters split entree and dessert. Weren't stuffed but satisfied. You are right on the water and the ambience is wonderful. Way better than a luau.

“Gastronomic Nirvana”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

A truly memorable dining experience awaits you at Mama's. From the moment you step on the property you can't help but feel you're in for a special treat. The seaside setting is ridiculously gorgeous, the dining room is a visual feast of eclectic and thematic decor, and the staff is the friendliest and most attentive my wife and I have come across. But the piece de resistance is the incredible food. You'll want to start with one of the specialty drinks so you can take your time while you decide what to order from the extensive (and fun to read) daily menu. With so many great selections, our group of four decided to get a different appetizer, entree, and dessert and share them with each other. Everything that was placed in front of us was uber delicious and it seemed that each course was better than the previous one. I can only imagine what the diners next to us thought with all of the ooing and ahhing coming from our table as we literally devoured our meal. I really can't say enough about Mama's except that we loved our first visit so much that we made a special day trip from Honolulu just to have lunch there. It is by far our most favorite restaurant of all time!

“Very nice restaurant”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We went without a reservation and only had to wait 5 minutes - just lucky probably. Very nice atmosphere - very open and up-scale tropical in feel. Both my wife and I ordered fish - it was very good. Some have complained about the price but I think it was about right for the quality of the food and the atmosphere and compared to other Hawaii places - it is a nice place. I would go back.

“Simply Paradise”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

So exotic it made me giggle with excitement. The restaurant is virtually outdoors with a decor of tropical flowers and hand-sewn stretched leather chairs looking out over the most beautiful surf imaginable. But the best part is the fish story. Every fish served comes with a description of who and where it was caught! An unforgettable dining experience.
