    Mama's fish house, located between Paia and Ho'okipa, is arguably Maui's best restaurant. Diners can watch the sunset through the tiki torches over Mama's private beach from its open air dining room. The menu is mostly seafood, prepared island style by some of Maui's top chefs. Its an expensive night out, but very romantic and worth the price of admission.

    You absolutely cannot beat this restaurant anywhere! The decor inside is really incredible and fhe food and service are exceptional. We highly recommed this restaurant for at least one meal during your stay. You will need reservations as it is extremely popular. Note that it is very pricey ($$$$) but well worth it. It is also a good 45 minute drive from Kaanapali. (If you decide to take the kids AND have drinks, appetizers and desert, you may need to take out a loan :)

    If I knew I was to die tomorrow and could have one more meal any where it, would be at mama's. I have been eating there since it was in a house, for more that 30 years probably. In a dream locale some of the best Hawaiian inspired meals any where.

    At least once every trip we venture to Mama's. The atmosphere at sunset on the beach where Mama's is located is hard to beat. And the food is to die for!

    Pretty memorable spot for a special occasion. About 30 minute drive, but worth the experience and the food. Consider it worth the drive. Catch the sunset before dinner.

    Phenomenal food located in Paia. While you are there, make a day of it and explore this quaint little town with its shops and great beaches

    Hadn't been in years until a recent double date night with some friends. Beautiful setting and delicious food. Service was not as good as expected. No acknowledgement from bar staff and waiter at table was not very friendly. Stuffed Mahi and the opakapka was very flavorful and fresh. I will go again after I save my spending money for a few months!

    Wonderful. Make your reservations when you plan your trip. The Curry was magical. I can't wait until our next trip.

    Maui's north shore has myriad options for good food and great scenery, but Mama's Fish House might be the best destination for both. For almost forty years, this beach house turned restaurant has offered visitors a scenic paradise to enjoy any special occasion. A coconut grove shades an open-aired deck overlooking a private, white sand beach and friendly servers deliver traditional Hawaiian and Polynesian fare, like wasabi crusted calamari and Ahi tuna caught only ten miles offshore.

    Practically perfect for honeymooners, this deluxe Polynesian beach-hut themed restaurant is gorgeous at sunset. Set on its own cove, here the daily-changing menu actually tells you who caught your fish and where it was caught just that morning. Cocktails are strong, and the appetizer of seafood poke served in a fresh half coconut was the high point of the meal. The rest? Extremely expensive and small portions. Folks, what you're paying for here is the ambience, with tiki torches and the sernading surf.
