Had the fish tacos as you do. Overall I was satisfied with the tacos and chips and beans. I was not blown away by the flavors. It satisfied my craving in a relaxed environment.

Good food - don't get me wrong but lunch for 4 of us cost $75. All good but a bit too much for lunch - didn't even have a beer. Fish tacos were good and so was the special taco.

Small portions, bland, a little expensive. The winner in the plate was some smashed beans which was tastefull. We'll not come back here.

Had the fish tacos for lunch, and not impressed. Over cooked fish, indifferent service, and overpriced.

Great fresh fish tacos! We loved the burrito too! By far our favorite lunch spot on the island. Get the hot sauce!

Had the Baja fish tacos. Pretty good! There are lots of fish tacos on the island, I'm not sure that this stood out as spectacular, but it was tasty.

Tropical taco was referred to me by a friend that has been visiting the island for 20+ years. I had the fish taco special and my husband had the fish taco burrito. Being from Arizona and having Baja Mexican food at my fingertips, I have to say these were just average. They served there purpose, but nothing to write home... More

I ordered the beer-battered fish tacos and it was welcome after a full day on the beach. Kinda soggy, but very fresh. :)

It is expensive but we had the beef tropical taco and the fat boy. Both were tasty and just enough to fill us up. Sitting out on the porch 'people watching' with the mountains in the background was awesome. Highly recommend. Didn't try the fish tacos though.

We were on our way home from the North Shore having checked out the beaches and wanted to eat something healthy, fast and casual. This is a great little stop in Hanalei and we enjoyed our fish tacos.
