On a recent 9-day trip to Maui, I ate here three times. This is a casual restaurant--walk in wearing your bathing suit and flip flops, but bring a smile, because the great food quality and the service will make you happy. I've eaten at their Scottsdale location for over a year, but this is the original, and it's even better.... More

Ate here on our last night on Maui. Did not disappoint. Fish tacos are amazing. Kids menu which is always helpful. Large portions. It's a busy place. You order and grab a table where you can-they will bring food to table when ready. The cashier was quoting 35-40 minutes from order to food time. We waited maybe 20 minutes for... More

Ordered the fish tacos and they were fantastic. Fresh and filling. A good portion of food. They are also sensitive to folks with food allergies. Wonderful service and the manager/owner came by to say hi and check on the service and quality of food. Recommended to us by some of the locals we met while on vacation.

If you want a good fresh meal after a day at the beach, I highly recommend Coconuts. It is a laid back setting with a walk up to order setting. I've never been by when it wasn't busy. Locals & visitors flock to eat from the wide menu choices. My favorite was the fish & chips. Two different types of... More

We came here based on reviews and were not disappointed. It's a busy place (which is good, right?) so expect to stand in line and then expect to wait at least 15-20 minutes for your food to be ready. We think it's worth it, though. We visited twice within a week and were not disappointed either time. The staff is... More

Stopped here for lunch after reading the reviews. Yep, the place is as good as they say! Lots of people, I suppose it's always busy. Stood in line to order, then a table opened up for us. The staff is really quick and efficient, so there is major turnover. Ordered the fish tacos - superb. Kids had fish and chips... More
