Really excited to try this place. Saw it on TV and other reviews. Ordered the fish tacos, they were good but not great. They staff was awesome and the portion was large. I just expected so much more. Good but not great

Never wrote a review on trip advisor before but Coconut's was flat out amazing. I ordered the fish tacos and a cup of the seafood chowder and if I knew that the tacos (which come on 2 plates by the way) were going to be that large and packed with so much fish and toppings I would've forgo the chowder....

This place has some of the freshest fish on Maui. My Ono sandwich was Ono( Hawaiian for the best) and my wife's fish tacos were good but small portion of fish but my portion on my sandwich was huge. Friendly staff and nice location. Will definitely go back.

We ate here since it was on the way to our whale-watching excursion & it was convenient. We were quite impressed!! We found it on Trip Advisor & it was highly rated (I can see why); it was also Zagat-rated. I would highly recommend the fish tacos (so tummy). They use coconut milk in their slaw rather than mayo.

We got the fish tacos and the coconut shrimp. Both were delicious. The fish on the tacos tasted really fresh and all the toppings of the taco gave it so many great flavors. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We would definitely come back.

Super cute and casual restaurant. I usually get my food to go. This place is always busy. The seafood chowder and pasta are excellent as well. This place has a great reputation for a reason!
