We stopped for lunch and had a great meal. My wife's calamari was the best we have ever had. The large pieces were crisp on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. The requested tarter sauce was loaded with fresh dill. My fish and chips tasted fresh and was served with a piece of Ono and a piece... More

We had the fish and chips (one piece of mahi mahi and one piece of Ono with fries and small container of coleslaw). The mahi mahi portion was smaller and a little dry but the ono portion was very good. The ono fish sandwich was also very good but really messy to eat, as they put the slaw on it.... More

The food is good but somewhat overpriced with an up charge for Mahi Mahi. That is a standard option. Ordered salad with fish. Extra $1.75 for Mahi. Which she didn't tell us until I looked a receipt. She pointed to sign 2 feet above my head leaning against the ice machine for that information. Not on the menu board right... More

Super good tacos, well worth a stop in! A little pricey, but I thought it was worth it. The coconut shrimp are also very delicious.

My husband and I came here for the first time this week on our trip to Maui. I ordered the fish tacos and he got the Mahi Mahi burger. Both were so good, we decided to come back one more time before our trip ended, and this time he got the fish and chips (I got the tacos again). The... More

We stopped in here for dinner the other night. Fish tacos and calamari and chips. Both were fantastic. The fish tacos are their signature dish, and there's good reason for that. Fresh tasting with a lot of flavor. Not the best we've tried in the islands (that would be the islands style taco stand around mm 29 on the road... More

This place is run so well, great employees, great and interesting fresh organic food for fish tacos and other foods. A terrific surprise. You have to order in line and then sit down and they suggest you share tables aloha style. Lovely thought for the whole world.

We spent our week in Maui trying as many fish tacos as possible and Coconuts was one of the forerunners. So much so we eat there twice! These tacos as generously sized and overflowing with fresh ingredients. The mango is a great addition. The tortillas are the best part - soft corn tortilla on the inside, grilled crispy tortilla on... More

We were recommended to Coconut's by the owners of our rental home. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the steak tacos. They were very good, but large. I recommend one taco and split a basket of fries unless you are really hungry! The staff was very nice and encouraged us to dig in and get messy which... More

The fish tacos really are fantastic, and the chicken ones are great, too. Ate here on our first night in Maui and dinner for us was $32. Not bad, and portions were ample. We didn't leave hungry and we were very pleased. Service was quick and friendly.
