Fish Tacos!

We loved our taco nights at Fred's. The atmosphere is fun, the drinks are huge, the view is beautiful and the food is yummy. We loved the mahi mahi tacos the best!

After numerous great meals at local restaurants in Kihei we had a craving for Mexican food and decided to eat at Fred's Mexican Cafe. Everything about the meal was average. The food, the server and the hostesses. The only thing outstanding was the view of the ocean from our table.

Nice place to enjoy a casual dinner. The prices are very reasonable and the food was good. We enjoyed the sunset views while eating outside on the patio. The service was fast.

We saw a large line-up to get into Fred's, so we went, but the food and our margaritas were very disappointing. I regret having to say this, as I usually try to find some positive angle, but my fish tacos were uncooked to the point of being cold and I felt quite unwell from our meal. Our server, a lovely...

It was a great spot to have dinner after watching the sunset. Great food, views and service. The sangria and chips and salsa were are great starter.

We had a great experience at Fred's. The staff were attentive and very friendly, our food came out quickly and it was delicious. I had the chicken quesadilla and my boyfriend got one of the specials. The portions were massive and the prices were very reasonable. All in all we had a fantastic experience and would recommend to everyone, well... More

The food was good but if you don't like birds don't sit near the open window /door. Family member left due to birds pecking by her feet and flying by when eating. It was walking distance from our condo. Price reasonable. Family member did go back another evening and sat somewhere else and enjoyed it. Probably would return. View is... More

The food here is good (not amazing) Americanized Mexican food with a few island touches. There's decent variety in both food and drinks, and portions are large on both. The kitchen will make substitutions to accommodate you and the food is pretty mild so most people can find something they like here. I think my party tried all three varieties... More
