Very expensive. At these prices you should expect your entree to arrive hot. Did not in my case. Imo they are just trying to move too many people too fast as they can. Food that was at proper temp was good but at this price you can't miss the basics. Service is great, but they need to make sure the food is as well. Not the best meal I had on Maui, but certainly the most expensive. The Four Seasons is better.

Best Seafood on Maui My fav...

Best Seafood on Maui

My favorite outing while visiting Maui going out for my birthday to Mama's Fish House. We read over and over again that it was the best place to eat in Maui. It didn't disappoint. The ambiance, the service, the view of the water, the freshly caught seafood.

The PASSIONFRUIT CREME BRULE. Better than any birthday cake I can imagine.

The manager even presented me with a lei of fresh flowers and berries.

Fair warning, it was also the most expensive meal I have ever had in the US.

Totally worth it.

(Be prepared with a camera to take advantage of that view while you wait. )



Mama's fish is as fresh as it ...

Mama's fish is as fresh as it comes -- and as well prepared as you will find anywhere on Maui. The Mai Tais are the best. But that's all secondary. The setting for Mama's is straight out of "South Pacific." If you were going to imagine the idealized Pacific hideaway -- Mama's is it. Expensive, yes. Worth it? yes! Absolutely.



Living off reputation!

My husband and I had eaten here in the past and we enjoyed it very much. We think that perhaps the business was bought out and they are living off of the previous owner's reputation. From the obvious price increases and the lower quality of the food. Not to mention the smaller portions and extremely pricey cocktails! Everyone should avoid this place although the view is good!

A waste of time

I have eaten here many times over the years and the only thing that remains good about this place is the view. The food was very bland and the presentation poor compared to my previous visits. The portions are much smaller and the price is much larger! Even the service was lacking a bit.

$100 View, $0.50 quality, $0.10 customer service

The location and view are top quality; with an ambience that requires a modest tweek to be ""fine dining"" material. The meal was a 7 out of 10.....Hey, when the entree prices rival those of high-end charity events, the meals MUST be truly outstanding to warrant higher praise.
The customer service is of McDonalds quality; my car was valet parked (mandatory at this restaurant) and returned to me with a 1.5 inch gash. The manager claimed his people are ""above reproach and 100% honest"" and apologized profusely for this unfortunate situation, but sadly, admitted he was ""powerless"" to ""do"" anything about it. Repeated calls to the establishments vice president (as suggested my the manager) were met with deafening silence. I was left to cover the repair cost by the rental agency (who actually recommended the restaurant).

Overall, a very frustrating experience ruining a perfectly good day during our honeymoon; a very expensive meal indeed.

BTW, a top notch meal was had at Stella Blues in Kihei; for about half the price!! Now that's a real quality restaurant!!

Very good experience!

On our first trip to Maui we decided to have a special dinner at Mama's. We made a reservation for 5:45 so we could watch the sky darken over the ocean (you can't actually see the sunset from this location, but it's beautiful just the same). We were seated immediately at a table one back from the windows, as it wasn't yet too crowded. We ordered drinks and the lobster and avocado appetizer w/taro chips, which was yummy. I ordered a curry dish w/three types of fish (ahi, opah, mahimahi) that came w/a small side plate of chutney, diced bananas and macadamia nuts. It was out of this world! Perfectly cooked and an ample amount of food for me (and I can eat). My husband got the opah w/caramelized maui onion. He said it was exactly what he was hoping it would be: flavorful, well-seasoned, and perfectly cooked. We enjoyed a leisurely meal, listening to in-house music system, mixed w/the sounds of the surf and voices of other patrons.

Our service was, overall, quite satisfactory. We weren't rushed or constantly hassled. In fact, it seemed that two other waiters serving nearby tables kept an eye out for opportunities to assist us (more water, etc.). My main issue was our server was a little lax in her duties. She seemed to disappear after our meals were served. She also didn't seem as eager to anticipate our needs (possibly the other waiters knew this, so were trying to help compensate?). We didn't let it bother us too much, since we were enjoying our food and the atmosphere so much.

Drinks were good, though expensive. Based on others' reviews and our assessment of the available options, we chose the Tahitian Black Pearl Dessert. It's both pretty to look at and tasty, and after such a filling and wonderful meal, it wasn't too heavy (I hate a dessert that sits in your belly like a rock afterwards).

Overall, a wonderful dining experience, if expensive. Be prepared to drop a good amount of money on dinner (~$150 for 2p). Go early to avoid serious crowds.

Still drooling over the macadamia-nut-crusted mahi mahi

OK, yeah, it's expensive. The Hawaiian fish chowder was a great way to start the meal. The curry was flavorful. And the crab-stuffed, macadamia-nut-crusted mahi mahi with lobster tail was fresh. Service was very attentive. Nice view of the ocean. You only live once, so go.
