I have been to the Islands of Aloha a number of times over the years (lucky me), a couple of times to Maui. Each time I hear about Mama's Fish House, a restaurant that everyone seems to know about. On past visits I have never made it to Mama's, so on this occasion I was determined to go. The Conference we were attending allowed for a day to ourselves, so hubby and I rented a car and took a nice leisurely drive around the Island to Mama's. It also happened to be my husband's birthday that week so a perfect excuse to go.
The fish on the menu (which is varied), carries the name of the fisherman and the place the fish was caught - a nice touch, and a longstanding tradition. The food and service was excellent but most of all the setting was outstanding.
Mama's first opened in 1973, when Floyd and Doris Christenson purchased the beachfront property. After sailing across the South Pacific for a few years in the late 1950's they settled in Maui to raise their family and finally, after 10 years, found the opportunity to share their love of fresh daily caught fish cooked Polynesian style.
All in all, we had a great lunch at Mama's - another box ticked along the trail!
