Expensive and the food was not that good. A "hole in the wall" that is not worth bragging about. We are locals and felt like we were being treated like tourist.

We do NOT repeat visits to restaurants, but the FISH TACOS ARE UNBELIEVABLE! The coconut shrimp are also amazing (that pineapple salsa? I could swim in it). On a ten day trip we ate there twice...and I didn't regret it one bit.

Coconuts is the best place for fish tacos on Maui! Not only do you get 2 big tacos that one person can hardly finish but the price is right. I have eaten fish tacos at other restaurants that cost way more and none have come close to the taste and value that Coconuts provide. Yes you may have to share... More

The restaurant is located in a strip mall, but don't let that throw you off. I had the BEST fish tacos ever at this location. Normally I would ask for something without this or that, but I let them serve it as is, and I'm so glad I did. The fish tasted delicious, and all of the toppings worked well... More

It was late in the afternoon and we hadn't had lunch yet. We just wanted a quick bite to tide us over until dinner. We ordered the fish tacos and coconut water. You order at the counter and either sit inside or out. Cute tables shaped like surfboards. The staff is very pleasant. About 10 minutes later our tacos were... More

This is definitley a 'must do' while in the Wailea area of Maui. The menu is simple, the seating is in big demand, and the food is outstanding. If you are looking for a casual dining experience Coconut's is an excellent choice and the fish tacos are memorable. For most one order will be enough for two. You can even... More

The fish tacos are by far their signature dish, tasted great. The fish and chips were the catch of the day and tasted delicious. The shrimp and chips where great as well. Enough to keep going back again and again almost every day and we have 3 days left. Staff are friendly and the owner makes sure your a happy... More
