Guidebooks on Maui all list Mama's Fish House as one of the best restaurants on the island, if not the best. While some of the restaurants recommended in our travel books were a bit overhyped (and way overpriced), our dinner at Mama's was worth the time and money. The setting is gorgeous, right on the ocean outside of the town of Pa'ia. The atmosphere is rather laid back for a gourmet restaurant. The entrees we had, both fish of course, were outstanding. What a difference it makes to eat seafood caught the same day! Dessert, which consisted of a macadamia nut-banana crumble, topped off our experience. If you are going to splurge on one restaurant while on Maui, this is your place!
