This place is fantastic! Probably the most expensive lunch I've ever had, but well worth every penny. Heads up, they do have (free) valet parking, which is cool because parking is limited and they probably want to cut down on people taking up way too...More

Decide to have lunch here one afternoon and was caught off guard when they asked if we had reservations ten minutes after they opened. I quickly realized why. The view from our table was amazing. Our server, Heather G. was very knowledgeable, not just about...More

The fish quality was great. We were seated inside which wasn't that impressive compared to alot of the other restaurants on the island that have oceanview seating. Drinks were just ok.

The location, the view, the food, and the service were all excellent. But be prepared for a very expensive check.

A must visit if you are going to Maui. The food was really good. The place was packed ( we went for a really late lunch). Would not recommend going without a booking. My drinks were also good. Service was excellent. Will go back again.

The view isn’t anything you can’t see elsewhere on the island. The food was good, but we had better in the small mom and pop shops. It was over priced.

Make reservations well in advance before coming to the island! This restaurant is a seafood lovers dream. Highly recommend. It is very popular hence reservations being booked months in advance. Prices are pricey compared to size of appetizers, salads, entrees, desserts. Once you check in,...More

First, be sure to get a reservation or you probably won't be able to eat at Mama's. Second, Kihel to Hana is a full day without stopping for lunch at a nice restaurant like Mama's. There are several sandwich shops that offer... More
