Mama's Fish House - Paia, Hawaii
inspiration to open a restaurant came from Café Vaima in Tahiti who served traditional Polynesian dishes, and in 1974 they purchased the land that Mama's Fish House is on today. Fast forward to 2016 and every fresh caught fish is still identified with the local fisherman's name. The decor and woodwork left me jaw dropped, gazing at the walls and newly renovated ceilings. Mama's is very Tiki, which I'm a big fan of, and is like nowhere I've ever been before. Enjoy a glimpse inside and out, and the colorful dishes served at my Dined There at Mama's Fish House, Maui.
