Despite being extremely busy the staff were very friendly, in particular the manager was super nice and customer service oriented. Expect to wait a while for your good and a table. The ingredients are certainly fresh, and the coconut shrimp were very good. While we found the fish tacos to be very... read more

The fish and chips, mahi mahi sandwich and poke bowl are all crazy good! It is our second week in Hawaii and Coconut's has the best food, at the best price, with the best service that we have experienced, so far. It is hard to have any desire to try anywhere else now. This is exactly the kind of place... More

Great fresh fish, walk up service, community tables, pretty good prices (fresh quality fish isn't cheap), can get super busy so don't be in a rush.

What can I say. Best fish tacos on the island and I've eaten a lot of fish tacos on Maui. This place was recommended by locals to me and they sure were right! Must try this place!

Their fish tacos are amazing. Very fresh, good portions, great flavors. The tacos come with a mango salsa and coleslaw that just put the finishing touches on great grilled fish. We each got a different meal ranging from the tacos to fried shrimp and a sandwich. the tacos were the best hands down. Local atmosphere and friendly service. Very cool... More

We ate here 3 times over our stay in Maui. Poke, fish tacos and ahi tuna salad all excellent. Staff remembered us and thanked us every time for coming back.

The food was amazing and the Hawaiian atmosphere was very cool with its surfboard tables and benches. I split the Cajun mahi mahi salad with papaya dressing and the sea food chowder with my mom and I was full. The salad was so flavorful you really didn't need any dressing. I would not recommend the teas. They have a very... More

Had lunch here the other day and as luck would have it the owner made an announcement that a big Hawaiian celebrity was sitting next to us and we were serenaded by him and his wife briefly. You could feel the family live in the house. Very special moment. :). Oh, the food was outstanding.

We searched Trip Advisor for a fish and chip place for our last night. This restaurant came up as #3 in Kihei and it was right down the street from our house. It was awesome!!! We had fish and chips and fish tacos. The food was great and the place was really clean. While we were sitting there we watched... More

Coconut's was recommended as a place loved by locals. We were warned that there could be a long wait. The line extended out the door and every table was full when we arrived, but we hung in there. We still waited quite a while at a table after ordering, but the food was worth it! The fish tacos were huge,... More
