Read about the fish tacos - and they were still fantastic and lived up to what we thought might have been hype. The seared tuna was fresh and perfectly done - you could pay three to four times the price elsewhere. Salads with grilled fishes were tasty as well - again - do not let the fast food ambiance fool...

It was difficult to decide what to have, there were so many great things on the menu. I kept looking around at what other people had, but EVERYTHING looked good! Ended up with fish tacos and they were divine! Plenty filling with two hefty tacos to an order. Thinking about going back for dinner just to try something else. ;-)

The fish tacos here were the best we have ever had. After enjoying a morning of surfing and SUP in Kihei, we were definitely ready for lunch. Coconuts did not disappoint. The ingredients were so fresh and delicious, and the portions were extremely generous. Service was quick and friendly too. Highly recommend for an affordable and tasty lunch or dinner... More

I would consider myself a fish taco connoisseur. It's generally my go to dish and I've had them everywhere. This is, unequivocally, the best fish taco I've ever had. From the presentation to the last bite- Everything is perfect. The restaurant is small, you'll probably wait, and you'll most likely share a table. Any of these "inconveniences" are far outweighed...

We decided to brave the crowds at this popular Kihei restaurant and boy are we glad we did. First off, the staff is so welcoming, it's hard to believe they can have such a great attitude in such a touristy area but they were patient, helpful and were happy to explain everything about the food. The fish tacos are exceptionally... More

We had the fish tacos. Very good. Lovely surroundings . Can get a bit crowed around lunch or supper. Usually need to wait for a place to sit down.
