If you are staying in Kihei make sure to stop by Coconuts for an order of fish tacos, if you aren't staying in Kihei make the trip! I am not a big fish fan and I could eat those tacos for breakfast lunch and dinner! Delicious mango salsa and melted cheese on the tortilla, wish I was in Maui right... More

Our rental agent for our condo recommended this restaurant after we had mentioned we had never had fish tacos. She said they were the best and she wasn't wrong. We had the fish tacos with "17 ingredients" and a bowl of their seafood chowder. They were both amazing. We had heard of fish tacos and they didn't really appeal to... More

Only a few items on their menu but they do them all fabulous! We started with the coconut shrimp, 6 large shrimp with a yummy mango duck sauce (for lack of better words) and very lightly breaded and lightly fried. Then we had the fish tacos, 17 different ingredients with mango salsa ontop and made from Mahi and Ono, we... More

Wanted fish and chips and checked our Maui Revealed book to find a good meal without the hefty price tag. We chose Coconuts and it was fine. Fresh fish, fast service and great price for dinner especially on Maui. Would recommend them to others. I guess their specialty is fish tacos and quite a few people were ordering them. Lots... More

The place was mobbed and very loud. I'm told its not always loud, but you couldn't even hear the person sitting across from you. Tables are common area's, so you end up sharing your table with others. We shared a Salmon platter. Fish was good, way too many french fries and they were not so good.

Heard a lot of good things about this place and it did not disappoint. The fish tacos were beyond good - layers of great tastes on a fresh tortilla. The mango salsa is heavenly and the fish tastes fresh too! Very generous portions. Also had the fish sandwich/burger and it was the bomb! They prepare their sandwich with either mahi... More
