Famous on Maui for its great food, perfect location, and high prices, most would say that Mama’s Fish House is a must when visiting Maui. We happen to agree.
The architecture and decor of Mama’s are about as Hawaiian as you can get with a breath-taking view of the ocean and white sand beach. All of the entrees on the menu are fresh to the point of having the fish entrees list who caught the fish earlier that day. We’ve never had a piece of fish cooked anything less than perfectly at Mama’s.
Genius chefs keep it fresh by constantly changing Mama’s menu to better address the fish and fresh ingredients that are available. One of the main entrees that rarely escapes the pages is the Pua Me Hua Hana. In the style of Old Hawaii, this dish is a little bit of everything. You’ll sample Ono, Opah, Kalua pig, grilled banana, Molokai sweet potato, tropical fruit, coconut, and homemade poi, all prepared in the traditional Hawaiian style. This dish explores what Maui is all about.
If your budget is short, you may want to come for sunset and have a cocktail at the bar. Taking a walk around the grounds afterward may be enough for you to experience old Hawaii at Mama’s Fish House.
