Mama’s Fish House

Fine dining and classic tiki cocktails

Its fresh fish, impeccable service, eclectic tropical ambiance and waterfront views have made Mama’s Fish House one of the top-rated fine dining restaurants in the country, but it’s also one of the best places on Maui to order a Mai Tai, served with the requisite paper umbrella in a classic “happy/sad” glass tiki mug.

Other classic tiki cocktails include the Blue Hawaii, Scorpion, and Plantation Punch, made with pineapple, orange, lime juice, and rum, but you can also find contemporary creations like the Pau Hana, a blend of lime, guava, and ginger-scented gin. Mama’s bar is open seating, but like the restaurant it often fills up, so reservations are recommended well in advance.
