You know exactly where your seafood came from; Mama’s is constantly printing new menus that reflect where the seafood for each dish was caught and who caught it, a Mama’s tradition since they opened. Start your experience off with Mama’s Ceviche, Papa’s Three Fish Sashimi, or grilled he‘e (octopus). Mama’s Salad or Tristan Lobster Lūʻau Soup makes for a perfect second course.
