“Mama Can Cook!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We went to Mama's on our honeymoon in 1989 and went back again this year for our 25th anniversary. It was well worth the wait! The food is outrageously fresh, flavorful and unique. Many restaurants can and do serve fresh caught island fish, but Mama's preparation is one of a kind. The restaurant's location is spectacular, so get there early to take a few beautiful photos. Mama's is truly "no ka oi".

Beautiful location, tasty food, unfortunately the service was not that great. They had probably forgot about our orders so we ended up waiting some 45 minutes between the end of our appetizers and our entrees... But the place was truly beautiful and is worth being checked out.

Reviewed 25 August 2014

This is a great restaurant in the front of a beautiful beach. Food was awesome but expect it to be expensive.

“Excellent atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This restaurant is known for people to make proposals and get engaged!! The atmosphere is absolutely lovely and the service is great. They have their own private beach area although you can't swim ther,emits a bit rocky. THey feature a new menu every day based on the catch of the day by their unique fisherman. The menu even says the name of the fishermen who caught your fish! Everything was tasty and the drinks were also delicious. We tried a Hawaiian plate, I loved the octopus and beef served in a papaya with lime.

We ate here twice during our week in Maui - the night we arrived and the day we left. Perfect bookends for our trip. The food is fresh, perfectly cooked, locally sourced, and simply divine. It's very pricy, but it's an experience you won't forget and worth a splurge if you've already decided to plunk down airfare to Hawaii.
