Mama's Fish House

Whenever we go away, we always try to follow a strict budget so we can do everything that we want; we are more of the explorer types rather than laying by the pool the whole time. The one place I had been wanting to go for a while and heard so many good things about was Mama's Fish House; and seeing as we pick out one or two fine dinning options on our trips, Mama's Fish House was definitely at the top of the list.

Located on Maui's North Shore since 1973, Mama's Fish House has all the island charms and celebrity visits over the years. The lunch menu is the same as dinner (serving from 11am to 9pm) so you won't feel the need to fit your day around the reservation; but make sure you make a reservation early as they are often booked out. There is free valet parking and if you arrive early you can enjoy the serene coconut grove and beach beforehand. If fish isn't your thing, not to worry, there are other options on the menu like the traditional Hawaiian feast, ribs, soups, salad and a variety of other seafood dishes (including gluten free). 

With the exchange rate, it was most expensive main I have ever ordered, but so worth it!! I loved the island fitout of the restaurant and peaceful atmosphere. After much deliberation (there were simply too many things we wanted to try) we ordered two entrees to share; a main each; a dessert to share; and herbal teas to finish it off; of course I enjoyed some fruity cocktails throughout. The entree 'Grilled He'e' was seriously the best Octopus we have ever tried and definitely recommend it as a must try!! The service was fantastic and we couldn't fault our meals. I ordered the Mahimahi and it was seriously perfection; we definitely left feeling satisfied.

 Papa's Three Fish Sashimi: You choose from three fish options, but going back over the menu I'm thinking it was the Ono -It's not what we remembered ordering and the ingredients on the plate aren't all listed on the menu. All I can say is that it was delicious and you can't go wrong with any of the three options.

 Traditional Hawaiian: Grilled Mahimahi with Big Island wild Boar slow-cooked in a ti leaf, Octopus luau, Ahi poke and sweet potato. You can't come to Hawaii without trying the traditional food. We had already been having it at different places on our trip, and this is another great offering. I unsuccessfully tried to eat all of Matt's banana :)

 Mahimahi: Caught by Alan Cadiz trolling with live Opelu along the north shore, stuffed with Deep Sea Red Crab and baked in a Macadamia Nut crust. The perfect combination of flavours and cooked to perfection!!

 Polynesian Black Pearl: Liliko'i chocolate mousse in a pastry seashell. Every dessert should be this pretty! It wasn't too sickly either, a perfect balance between the mousse and what tasted kinda like a fortune cookie. The sauce on the plate was passionfruit (Liliko'i) which just so happens to be my favourite flavour, it took great restraint to not lick the plate.

Next time we make it back to Maui, Mama's Fish House will definitely be back on the agenda. If you can make it to that side of the island, it's definitely worth your visit!
