Mama's Fish House Restaurant and Inn Reviews

Add your review for Mama's Fish House Restaurant and Inn.

  • RonCrain reviewMama's may be the most authentic Hawaiian dining atmosphere in the islands. Located on the beach in a cove near the wind surfing mecca of Ho'okipa, it affords a spectacular view of the ocean through the palms. The building is a low plantation style structure with plenty of windows. Seafood here is always less than 18 to 24 hours out of the ocean, and preparations are outstanding. You will pay for it though. Lunch for two, without drinks is $40. Dinner is 50% more. Since Mama's is only a 15 minute drive from the airport, I usually make it the last stop before leaving Maui.

    55555 by Zoran S.


  • harryhEspecially if you're also going to a Luau on your Hawaiian vacation, skip the Traditional Hawaiian sampler and go for one of the fish dishes. The variety isn't really worth it.

    55555 by harryh


  • Jessica A.Great meal. Love the mahi and the ahi sashimi salad. Great atmosphere. A must while in Maui.

    55555 by Jessica A.


  • Michelle A.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!

    55555 by Michelle A.


  • Michael H.Get the stuffed mahi mahi and the coconut curry plate. Service is just as good as any fine seafood restaurant in a city...only with a much better view and fresher fish.

    55555 by Michael H.


  • Dmitry W.This place has really amazing seafood. Tuna sashimi is just incredible, service - close to outstanding. Highly recommended, especially on sunset.

    55555 by Dmitry W.


  • Catherine M.Food is WAY overpriced...another perfect tourist trap. Too bad, the place is nice but it cost us 90 $ for a simple lunch (no alcool, no desert) Please don't waiste your money. Food is very ordinary.

    22222 by Catherine M.


  • Moe B.Its called Mama's FISH house.... So try some fish....

    55555 by Moe B.


  • Hisun K.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.

    55555 by Hisun K.


  • John J.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.

    55555 by John J.


  • Wael H.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.

    55555 by Wael H.

  • Michele N.Fabulous meal! Great atmosphere with the Waves from the ocean rolling in!

    55555 by Michele N.


  • IsWindThere is no better place on Maui for fresh fish and pacific rim dining. Some say it's expensive, but not any more than any other hotel or other like places. The best ambiance/service/food here.

    55555 by IsWind


  • Crystal B.Really expensive but worth it, especially if you just landed at OGG (about 15-20 minutes away). They stop serving lunch around 2:30 so try to get in before then. Otherwise you'll hit the dinner rush.

    33333 by Crystal B.


  • Katerina👑🔨💍 I.I followed the current.. I had the lobster guacamole & and the mahimahi.. I thought I died and went to heaven.. Seriously:)

  • Maui Seaside HotelRight passed the quaint town of Paia is this grand restaurant. The fish is fresh, the meat is tender—but all is shadowed by the ambience of this restaurant that sits on a private lagoon.

    55555 by Maui Seaside Hotel

  • typhoondebThumbs up on wasabi crusted calamari - the perfect amount of wasabi without being overpowering. Our server suggested splitting the ahi salad entree as an appetizer over the lobster guac & it was great

    55555 by typhoondeb


  • typhoondebWe booked a lunch rez on Open Table & our experience lived up to the hype - the view, food, service & atmosphere. Never expected to see kite surfers & crashing waves like on the North Shore.

    55555 by typhoondeb


  • Ed C.The Mai Tai rocks! Really strong, and not super sweet--which is completely opposite of every other Mai Tai I've ever had.

    55555 by Ed C.


  • Exclusive ResortsWow. A favorite restaurant on Maui. Location and view are spectacular, the menu was superb. Get the lobster guacamole and Ahi, Ono and Mahimahi sautéed in Panang Curry and coconut milk entree.
