Excellent flavor in the fish tacos. While waiting for our food we couldn't believe how many people came through the line. They brought the food out very quickly and they were constantly busy. The employees were very friendly walking around making sure customers were enjoying their food.

The fish tacos were the best ever. 17 ingredients all blended so well together. We also had the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi with a mango sauce. This was fantastic. Very generous portion of mahi mahi too! Casual atmosphere

My cousin and I were looking for some really tasty fish tacos. We found the reviews and decided to try it out. It did not disappoint. I normally order about 5 street tacos for lunch and 2 were enough for me. They are a little spendy but still felt like it was worth it. Definitely check it out!

We went recently and enjoyed he atmosphere, but we ordered fish and chips and fish tacos because everyone said they had the best. We found the fish and chips to be tough and a little overcooked. The fish tacos are the only way to go!!!!

This little place is tucked into a strip mall, but extremely popular and delicious. My daughter and I enjoyed the fish tacos our first visit at dinner time. You each get two plates, and we were stuffed, but didn't want to miss a single bite. Their fish tacos are what they are known for, but everything looks good. They are... More

Love the mango and toppings. It's a little hard to find a seat, but it seems to work out before your food arrives. Not a place to linger after your meal though, b/c of other folks looking to eat. Should be ok if you arrive before 6pm.

We decided to try the Coconut Fish Cafe after reading all the positive reviews on on the Internet. It did not disappoint. Great food, reasonably priced and ample portions. Best fish tacos I have had in a long time.
