About Mama's Fish House
Paia, HI 96779
Mama's Fish House is a converted beach house in a coconut grove on a secluded white sand beach. Inside, hinged windows open to let in the trade winds and Polynesian artifacts and original oil paintings decorate tropical hardwood walls.

Mama's Fish House Ratings and Reviews

Fabulous as always. The very best view in Maui and the fish is always prepared wonderfully.
Good for dinner but go at lunch and reservations are a must. Arrive early and enjoy their view. Nothing better on the island.

Have dinned at Mama's each time we have visited Maui over the years, food is great however the price this visit was a significant increase over pass years. Value to cost threshold is questionable. Service was okay, I let the server talk me out of the meal I really wanted the ahi/mahi pang curry for and oily vs buttery mushroom fish ..my bad. We tried the pork side dish, very dry. The wine per glass tripled from past years....while still good I felt a bit price gouged this time.

Everything here is good to fantastic. Was here 10 years ago and it seems even more popular now. We had the special appetizer ceviche in a coconut, crab cakes, macadamia encrusted fish, seafood bouillabaisse and banana nut crisp. Everything except the dessert was excellent. The dessert was ok, other desserts looked better. The drinks were excellent. The mai tai is the best we've had in our 2 week Hawaiian trip.

We met friends there who we had not seen for over 26 years. What a great place to reunite. The wait staff did not seem to mind our 4 hour late lunch. Our waiter was very accommodating and helpful in choosing what to order and we were pleased with our selection. Loved the homemade cookies for dessert. We can probably only go to Mama's for very special occasions because the prices are a bit out of our league, but we managed to share a salad, an entree and a dessert for under 100.00. No one seemed to mind that we shared. Thank you, Mama's for a great memory :)

I had 2 applies and my lunch partners had the stuffed Mahi Mahi. It was difficult not to lick the plate that the clams came on. Apparently the mahi mahi has been on the menu for years and I can see why. It was wonderful-From the tiny bit that was shared with me! Service was exceptional a day the bread before lunch and the cheesecake dessert were good. Quite expensive but worth it.

Mama's is a great example of what it means for a business to optimize the customer experience. It is extremely well organized and operated, with a warm, friendly, knowledgeable service-minded team and fresh, tasty, satisfying cuisine that delights the senses. Mama's delivers, with great imagination, love and beauty, a memory-making dinner experience in paradise. We'll be back.

We were joined by a last minute addition to our party and the hostess could not have been more pleasant or helpful. She quickly found us a table for five and we enjoyed a magical dining experience. It has been almost two years since I was last in Maui, and I am very happy to be able to report that the food was every bit as good as it was two years ago. The service was friendly, done with a sense of humor and professional. Everything about the evening was perfect. This is a very special spot with excellent food.

After 8 days on Maui and 4 high ends dinners, Mama's Fish House was overall the best food and value. And I don't even eat fish. I had the sort ribs and it was the best meal that I had all week. Of course, I would of loved to have a couple more non-fish options. But, since we don't live on the island and only visit on special occasions I am sure that I will not get tired of the menu.

Food, service, and atmosphere were all great. ONE BIG PROBLEM, and that is special requests. I called and asked for a small table for 2 by the window for an ocean view to celebrate my wife's 61'st Birthday, almost a week in advance. I told them we could come ANYTIME within a one week period of time, it didn't make any difference when, just whenever that type of table (there are several of them) was available and they could confirm and guarantee. I was told it was available on a Sunday afternoon after the brunch/lunch rush at 1:45. Kind of an odd time, but for one of those tables o.k. Called that morning to confirm and they said yes we were all set. Got there at 1:00, so we would have plenty of time. At 1:45 they seated us at a 4 top in the middle of the restaurant with a minor ocean view. I told them that wasn't what we had requested and they confirmed. And guaranteed as early as that morning. I even said we would wait at the bar until one became available. They said that was all that was available for us today ? However there were two tables like we requested that were open and one remained open until we left. I decided not to make a scene about it but, Really ? We left 90 minutes and $250.00 later very disappointed. Great food & place, but still can't figure out what was wrong ?We were well dressed and excited. Go there for great food but DO NOT expect any special requests to be met.

Honestly we went and planned to get multiple appetizers and desserts. The waitress was mad the moment (Germaine) we said we were getting appetizers and here was no service from that point forward. In fact, when they brought bread over to our table the waitress stopped the man who dropped off the bread to ask why he did that. I have been before and while it has been good previously, this experience makes me hesitant to go back- after all there are so many amazing restaurants in Maui.

It was one of the most impressive dinning experience in my life in Hawaii for 10 years. Outstanding ambience as Hawaiian style with a hint of elegance. There is no place like this in Oahu! It made our petite Hawaiian getaway memorable!
Wonderful 3 Sashimi appetizer, stuffed Mahi Mahi and I was most amazed with their poi. I got side order of wild bore Kalua and I dipped into the poi and it was Amazing!!
I'd strongly recommend this place to anyone expecting the exceptional dinning experience in Hawaii.

The food is good. I am not sure why the cocktails are so expensive. I had better drinks for less money. The guacamole was bland. The vegetables were bland. The fish is definitely fresh and tasty. The service is thorough and so smooth. Desserts are the best of all.

This open air restaurant is right on the beach, with an incredible view!
The fish is daily caught with acknowledgement of the local fisherman and where it was caught!
The food is great and the service is friendly and efficient.
Make a reservation or expect a wait.
