Great Fish Tacos

After an afternoon of hiking on Haleakala, we were looking for a simple meal that we could take back to our cabin for dinner. Since Trip Advisor gave a high rating, we decided upon Island Tacos. This is a food stand in the Cannery Parking lot. The owner opens the stand daily from 11:00 am... read more

We visited for an early lunch on a weekday. My husband and I shared three tacos, all fish, and two drinks for exactly $20. Definitely the cheapest meal we had while in Maui. The tacos are sizable and absolutely fantastic. This place is wonderfully laid back and unhurried.

Island Taco is a taco stand offering fish, chicken, pork, and veggie tacos with veggies and avocado! The price was $6 when I ate there, but looks like it's gone up. Casual take-out stand with a covered picnic table.

Yes this is a must if you are in the mood for fish tacos. Very tasty food, freshly prepared and very reasonably priced. Fish tacos are new to me but they are a must try for sure and you can't go wrong coming to Island Taco to try them out.

Perhaps the most chill and best tasting tacos you will have. I got two fish tacos -- they were $7 each but well worth the price. A lot of fish on each one. In fact, the most fish I ever had on a fish taco. The owner is cool too. I rode my bike there from Paia.

I've tried numerous fish tacos all over Maui and these are by far the very best. They are loaded with fish, black beans, cabbage, cilantro, jalapeños, avocado, and other flavorful ingredients I neglected to identify because I was too busy devouring this delicious taco. They also have a large array of salas you can use, such as awesome pineapple salsa.... More

We had the ono fish tacos at the island taco stand this week and they were so good! One taco was enough for a light dinner and reasonable at only $6. The pineapple salsa made it stupid good.

Onoliscious means overly delicious ! This small stand is located in the parking lot of the Haiku Marketplace and they have the BEST fish taco's ever. Want to eat what the locals love ? Than give this outstanding place a try. It's a quick detour from the road to Hana or a quick stop on your way to upcountry. Fresh... More

My fiance and I stayed on Maui for 2 weeks and we asked the locals where they would eat. We were led to Horhitos Mobile Taqueria first and thought their $4 fish taco was really good. Then we came here after ziplining and the ono fish taco totally blew our minds! For $6 you'd get a big fat taco filled... More
