Excellent food for a fair price

We had the fish wraps and tacos and they were both excellent. The place is busy you order at the till and then take a number to your table. The food arrived within 15 minutes. The place is so busy that the staff sometimes don't have time to wipe the table but after we asked someone to do it they... read more

We read about the fish tacos on trip advisor and had to try them. They were excellent, a tad messy (because they put everything but the kitchen sink on them). Great taste..lots of flavor!!!!

The food is great. The owner is the nicest guy. These are the best fish tacos on island. Fun atmosphere and reasonable prices. You won't be sorry!

Located in a small strip mall at the north end of Kihei Rioad, the lineups tell the popularity of this little restaurant. The night we were there, they had to close early because they ran out of fish. There is sitting both indoors and outdoors. Loliveky wood tables. You order the food at the counter, pay and then they bring... More

We had a visit planned Coconut's Fish Tacos when we came to Maui. The fish tacos were great. So glad we made the visit early in our trip so we can work in another meal there before we go home!

Loved the chicken and fish tacos. Delicious toppings and so fresh tasting. My mom loved her chicken cesar salad as well. Although my husband thought the chicken teriyaki was dry and overwhelmed by rice, their tacos and top notch service deserve 5 stars.

Live here and had never tried this place until visitors came and was looking for a place to take them. Gave it a try. Wowed. Fish Tacos were fantastic. Guests had fish plates which were generous, delicious and very reasonably priced. Went back three days later. Friendly service. If there's a downside, its so popular that sometimes its hard to...

If looking for a fast food/ good food experience then Coconuts Fish Cafe in Kihea is a good place to stop. Lots of great fish restaurants on Maui, but most are in the $25 - $45 range per person. Coconuts is known for their fish tacos ( Zagats rated ) and they deliver for around $12 for 2 very tasty,filling... More

Food was good, but not amazing to deserve a 5 star. Fish taco is tasty, but not awe-inspiring like some of these reviews made it to be
