Based on a year’s worth of reviews, both the luxury Mama’s Fish House on Maui and local favorite Helena’s Hawaiian Food have been named among the best restaurants in the U.S.
Mama’s Fish House is ranked tenth among fine-dining restaurants and Maui’s Lahaina Grill is at No. 15 on a list topped by the acclaimed Alinea in Chicago.
Helena’s placed 7th among TripAdvisor’s first-ever list of the top 10 bargain dining experiences across the country.
TripAdvisor also released its ranking of top fine-dining restaurants in the world in which Alinea, the only U.S. restaurant listed among the top 10, is in sixth place.
