Can't describe how I feel about Mama's fish house. There's so many words to describe how delicious that meal was and how perfect the service was, it is too hard to compare it to another restaurant. Creatures creatures with the welcoming smile . Drinks were made to perfection, and the view was unbelievable.

“Make the effort- you won't regret it”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Heard so much about this place from the locals- had to try it, right?

Well, we were here for 1 week and on the first day of the trip we could only get in a 5:15pm dinner slot on day 3 for the entire period that we're here. Physically getting there was not much easier... 25 minutes of twisting and turning highways and side roads- the restaurant is in a, shall we say, a very non tourist area and smack in the middle of no where in particular.

That all said, having eaten there, it was well worth it. GREAT food (a bit pricey)- we had a party of 11 and not a single order came as a disappointment. Fresh and succulent preparations were the norm, and each dish did in fact taste as good as it looked.

There is a beehive of activity going on non-stop, with a packed house, servers running around very efficiently and even for pour large-sized party the service was not at all slow or affected.

A very memorable experience for our foodie clan... well worth your making the effort, but don't go there with near maxed credit card limits though!

“Excellant food”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Fabulous restaurant on the beach in Maui, the best food and great atmosphere. The attention to detail is incredible from the food to the flowers everywhere. If you only have one expensive meal on Maui and you like seafood try Mama's!

“Amazing, Worth the High Dollar Prices”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We weren't planning to go to Mama's since we were trying to eat on a budget while in Maui. However, after getting confused on another reservation and having an unplanned evening, we decided to make the drive to Paia and check it out. Oh. My. Word. Best fish I have EVER eaten. I am a food lover and pretty critical on cuisine and the macadamia encrusted mahi mahi stuffed with lobster and crab was TO DIE FOR. The pineapple and white wine sauce with it, well, I wanted to lick my plate. It is expensive. But coming from a very frugal spender, it is worth the splurge. I will definitely come back if on Maui again!

“Amazing food, romantic ambiance, outstanding service”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We made a reservation for our anniversary dinner, and it ended up being the culinary highlight of our trip. The grounds and atmosphere were breathtaking, and the food was absolutely amazing. It is pricey but worth it! The service was infallible. We were seated on time, there was a card on the table wishing us a happy anniversary, and the waitress gave me a beautiful lei. The food was soooo wonderful that it was definitely one of the best dinners we have EVER had.
