Tried the fish tacos, chicken tacos and fish and chips.. Didn't feel that any were fresh.. They all had at least one or two bad bites.. Coconut shrimp is good though

The food is excellent. The staff are beyond friendly and are always serving and cleaning. Brian welcomed and made people at home. It's what you want if your taco stomach starts calling. We went three times, and everytime the food was delicious. Thank you for the great experience. See you next year.

Hidden away in a strip mall, very basic, walk in go to counter order and food is brought when ready. Good fresh fish tacos, but pretty small and even considering the islands poor value. If you want a good fish taco, it is a pretty good option but don't expect good value.

We are lucky enough to travel to Maui frequently. Our "go to" place to eat is Coconut's Fish Café. It has a great atmosphere, staff are friendly, and the food is awesome! Best fish tacos I have had on the island. We recommend this place to everyone that goes to Maui.
