    Stuffed mahi mahi is a staple for a reason! Black pearl dessert is also amazing.

  • Barry B.

    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.

    Great service and food, but pricey. Get there early to take pics, then take your time at dinner. Drinks are tasty, apps are tempting, entrees are delish!

    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!

    The venison and calamari are a must to start off with. The fresh fish is just delicious

    The crab and lobster stuffed macadamia encrusted mahi mahi has been prepared the same way since Mama's first opened in 1973. There's a reason why. Try it.

    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!

    Try the Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and lobster, the oysters, and the sashimi appetizer. You won't regret it!

    Ceviche, lobster guacamole, and monchong with lobster were absolutely amazing. Fantastic setting and food to match.

    Fish is great

    This restaurant no longer accepts parties of more than 8 (and even 5 or more have to arrange far ahead). Their explanation that it is necessary to "maintain the fine dining experience" is insulting.

    Mahi Mahi was awesome as were the drinks it's pricey but worth it !

    Isaac Barela · March 11
  • Haley B.

    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.

    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!

    Incredible views and super fresh fish. The menu states the fisherman who caught the fish that morning and where they were caught.

    Creme brûlée is spectacular. Crab cakes and lobster guac were good but very expensive. We had the special fish I don't remember the name but very good. Drinks are very expensive but good also.

    Wasabi calamari and the black pearl for desert

    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

    Pricey for lunch but absolutely delicious. Grab lunch here before you head out to Hana.

    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.

    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
