    Mahi-mahi was so nice. You can taste it with pineapple sauce and butter based sauce which was around the fish. Outside the restaurant is ocean view and you can have your meal with the fantastic view!

    Pricey but worth it. Delicious cocktails, memorable entrees like the stuffed mahi and curry, and appetizers including ono in a coconut. Beautiful view and great service. Come for lunch to soak it in.

    Def get the Beef Polynesian to start. You can't go wrong with any of their fresh fish but I love the sashimi & a bowl of spicy mahi mahi soup. Oh, don't forget a Mai Tai or Scorpion cocktail!

    Get a table w/an ocean view. It is expensive but excellent food and service. Loved the grilled octopus, and the Mahi Mahi stuffed with local crab and lobster, chocolate pie w/chocolate caramel crust

    This was absolutely one of the two best restaurants on the island. Merrimans was terrific as well. Comparing Mai Tai's, sorry, Merriman's takes the cake but Mama's has amazing dishes.

    This is by far the best restaurant in Maui and maybe even Hawaii, try anything. Everything is good and feel free to come more than once since the menus change almost daily.

    Always a treat to eat at this spot, although it was steamy in the open air restaurant. Enjoyed the macadamia nut crusted crab cakes, roasted duck and homemade mango ice cream. Guava & rum below.

    The food is good and fresh. The place is packed but at Paris three star prices we need to review in that light. Plan on cocktail, wine, appetizer, main and dessert about $160 per person with gratuity

    Mahi was very fresh and delicious but the plate did not look classy. It is hard for a kitchen to maintain excellence with the number of guests being served. At $52 and people waiting. Amazing.

    The Mahi mahi and Traditional Hawaiian are top notch. Try the poi, you might like it. Go all out and order the black pearl- you'll be hard pressed to eat a prettier treat

    Came in knowing it was expensive, and it definitely did not disappoint!! Amazing fresh dishes. Calamari was fabulous and the deserts were yummy. Will come here again... And again! (Best view too)

    It was the highlight of my family's trip to Maui. Get the calamari appetizer, it is something unforgettable you wouldn't have expected. Got Ceviche, oysters, and a whole fried fish and mahimahi.

    Outstanding service ambiance and food. Worth every dollar you spend. The mahi mahi Penang curry is great. The crab guac with chips appetizer is good too. The drinks were ok but a little pricey

    Fresh fish, wonderfully prepared. Great service in a beautiful location. The free flowing architecture of the fish house with its windows, wood work and roofing are a visual meal.

    If you have the cash to spend, this place is a MUST! I had the stuffed Mahi and it was fabulous. Loved the beach outside and the sunset with an incredible rainbow was a perfect ending to our dinner.

    Amazingly fresh fish, great decor, and stunning private beach. Must go in Maui! Dinner completely booked between Christmas and NYD while we were here. But lunch has the same menu, plus a sunny beach!

    Wonderful seafood and gorgeous views. Fresh fish daily. The fishermen and the fish catch locations are noted on the menu as part of the dish descriptions. Nice little beach in front with tide pools.

    This is the best place to eat in Maui. I can honestly say this is one of the top 5 restaurants I've ever eaten at - includes restaurants in New York, Paris, and Istanbul. Just go and enjoy.

    Pretty much everything is delicious! I especially enjoyed the local wild venison. I also love the fact that they indicate where your fish/meat is coming from!

    The ocean is right there! It means that seafood must be fresh, delicious and cheep. It is fresh, it is very well prepared. But this is just fresh seafood and those prices are absolutely unjustified.

    The sashimi app is delicious, but leaves you wanting more. Tomato and Maui onion salad was wonderful, have a bed of lettuce added. We split the Panang Curry and it was superb, enough to share.

    The best seafood we've ever had. You will want to try anything caught locally. Try the sashimi too! The cocktails are good, I recommend the Plantation Punch.
  • Lauren D.
    I know it's called Mama's fish house but the short rib was among the best I've ever had. I'd recommend all of the apps! Shared a bunch and then split the short ribs and it was 👌🏻👌🏻

    The restaurant is amazing and beautiful. I guess that it's the best place to eat in Maui. The dishes are delicious and the fish is fresh. Unfortunately is also expensive, but I don't have regrets!

    Gorgeous view, excellent service giving us complimentary soup to start and a coconut desert to end! Start with the lobster guac and get the macadamia crusted mahi stuffed with crab and lobster!

    The Hawaiian sampler was heavenly. It has a little bit of something for everyone: Mahimahi, wild boar, sweet potatoes, bananas, octopus luau, poi and more. Highly recommended, esp. w/chili water.

    First off, I am not a seafood person, but those prawns with vanilla... OMG - so good! Beautiful view of the bay too! Reservations are a must - at least a couple weeks ahead for dinner. We went for lun

    Reserve a seat close to the cove during sunset. Order a tropical drink, a few appetizers, some opakapaka and stuffed Maui for entrees, and experience one of the best dining experiences on island!

    Creme brûlée was very good with lilikoi crust. Dessert are $15 so plan on a full dinner at about $160 per person with drink, simple wine and gratuity.

    Seared ahi was a $56 special. It was good and fresh but definitely not served in the style and environment of the price commanded. Hats off to Christensen family for mining gold at Mama's

    Food was awesome. Be prepared to not be in a budget. May have been one of the best meals we ever had. Mahi mahi and crab cakes were amazing. Awesome service too!!! Fast and super friendly.

    Get the Beef Polynesian (appetizer), the Stuffed Mahimahi (entree), and the Polynesian Black Pearl (dessert). It's expensive, but the food and the service were spectacular! Oh, better book in advance.

    Amazing food. Albeit very pricy. Amazing asparagus or onion soup.Mama's salad is large&delightful.Main courses of mahimahi w-stuffed lobster or pork tenderloin encrusted w/macadamia nuts ..both A++
  • Chris S.
    Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Can't forget the Mai Tai's either. If you have plans to visit Maui and want to go to Mama's, remember to make your reservation well in advance.

    You can safely go with their recommendations. My party of two tried a couple different apps and entrees and with everything being same-day catch, it's simply fish/seafood heaven.

    You HAVE to eat here! Make a reservation. Everything on menu is fantastic. Faves: shrimp wontons, mahi mahi, coconut porter, chocolate pie - get it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    I'm not even kidding, the octopus & coconut milk dish on the Hawaiian feast entree may be the best thing I've ever eaten. Creamy, sweet, and with the most tender bits of octopus...absolutely unreal.

    OMG! Having a wonderful time here at Momma's Fish House. Excellent food. My Mahimahi stuff with lobster and shrimp, perfect! From the moment we were greeted, seated, and served this place gets a 10

    Sashimi! All of the raw/rare fish dishes simply melt in your mouth like butter. Their Mai Tai is not too sweet, which I loved. Get rez 1 hour before sunset, watch the day fade into night. Worth the $.

    Get the stuffed mahi mahi. Let people at your table try a bite and they'll be supremely jealous. Don't let them try it and you'll get all of the best meal in Maui for yourself

    So many people told me to go here, we went twice on our trip. Both times it was outstanding. The lobster guacamole and the macadamia crusters mahi mahi stuffed with crab and shrimp :)

    Sashimi app is outstanding, but leaves you wanting more. Tomato and Maui onion salad was amazing, but add a bed of lettuce. The Panang Curry was superb, enough for two to split.

    Beautiful location, gorgeously beautiful restaurant. Sashimi is a must ($26.00) - fresh, delicate and absolutely delicious. Mahimahi and Ahi in sautéed in Panang curry and coconut - best

    One of the most amazing restaurants I have ever experienced (& I am a travel consultant). A true toss up between Mama's & Humuhumu's for best dinner on Maui. You will not be disappointed.
  • Maui---It's All About Lifestyle
    Even without a reservation Mama's Fish House will accommodate. Ask for a spot at the bar and enjoy a Mai Tai (or two!) with some Pupus. Read more

    Easier to get a reservation around 8:30pm. And they don't get new seating after 9pm. Not cheap but super nice fresh fish dishes with local catch. I'll go back next time we are in Maui.

    One of the best dining experiences I've had in my life. Everything from the food to the service to the ambience- it was all perfect. I'm actually moving my wedding from TX to Maui so we can eat here.

    The panang curry, crab cakes & tomato/Maui onion salad are all fantastic. This place is a real gem, book well in advance of your trip to get a decent reservation time.

    The service and food were impeccable. My wife had popio steamed in a delicate ginger/green onion and soya preparation. Best fish we can recall eating. Definitely highly recommend.
