I had heard about Mama's before our trip to Maui and was intrigued. Our experience far exceeded our expectations. We decided to beat the crowd and go for lunch (also thinking that may be a little cheaper) and we still made a reservation. This is a must if you want the best table. The complimentary valet parks the car and leads to where to go. The grounds are absolutely beautiful!!! Palm trees and the raked sand grounds, private walkways, exotic plants, trees and flowers, and the most spectacular view of the ocean. They have their own private beach where you can watch the windsurfers. Our table was next to the window. The windows all pull up, so there is no glass between you and the amazing scenery. The service was excellent! The food was the best we've ever had. In fact, our trip to Mama's was probably the highlight of our trip. Mama's has their own fishermen that catch the fish and they serve the fish daily. So it is always fresh, never frozen. There is a different lunch and dinner menu daily, and the presentation was just beautiful!!! It began to rain while we were dining, and were pleased to know that they provide umbrellas for all coming and going, so we didn't have to be in the rain. The prices were quite a bit higher than we expected them to be for lunch, but upon finding that out, we just decided to go for it. Drinks, appetizers, lunch, dessert and coffee. It came to $200 with the tip. But it was a complete, delicious meal that we will never forget. We would highly recommend this restaurant. But plan on spending at least $135.
