Not just dessert (see photo) but also the whole meal was delicious. We were last here over 25 years ago. Things have changed but the quality is still outstanding. We stopped by at lunch thinking we'd have no problem getting in. I would suggest making a reservation. We were fortunate and did not have to wait and had a lovely... More

This is a great place to go, fantastic food, drinks and a beautiful setting. I would go before dark so you can enjoy the fabulous view which completes the whole experience. I have been here several times and enjoyed it immensely each time. First Class.

This has been my family's number one dining experience in Maui for the last several years. I have never seen a celebrity in here but the photos prove a lot. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. The atmosphere is warm tungsten lighting (almost candlelight in color) romantic but, families gather(like myself) to share a special night. Prepare to spend... More

I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Old Hawaiian feel with the best seafood you will ever eat in your entire life. The Mai Tai is nothing short of amazing! They really make you feel welcome if you are celebrating something special! Aloha!

May be the best spot on the island of Maui. Spot is unique. People and food compliment the environment.

Based on the ratings here, we had high hopes for an outstanding meal. Staff were excellent, and on time. We left with a major disappointment; the food was EXTREMELY high priced considering the preparation and quality. No cocktails or wine below $10.00 (look at the menu for specifics) A small bowl of onion soup ala carte for $16.00. There is... More

Aloha, Mama's Fish House in Paia provided me the best dining experience I have ever had. Every aspect of my culinary quest for perfection was fulfilled: the service, the ambiance, the location and views of the Pacific, and the food. James was our server and he has a special gift for welcoming and serving his patrons. He definitely enhanced our... More

The food was exquisite - Tristan lobster with polenta and fried shallots (because I'm allergic to garlic - the polenta was a substitution for me) - the flavors melted together and were truly extraordinary. Dessert was crime brûlée, and was perfect. The service was prompt and courteous, and atmosphere is casual and laid back. The view is incredible of course,... More
