If you're looking for the best fish tacos on Maui, search no further. This is by far the best place for fresh, delicious tacos and chowder. The prices are great, and staff and service are friendly, efficient and fun. Great atmosphere in a convenient location in Kihei. Peak times invite large crowds, so get there early and enjoy one of...

Best fish tacos I have had. The flavor was fantastic and the two tacos fill you right up. Don't worry that there aren't any sides.

This is our second trip to Maui and I avoided this place because I didn't like fish. After prepping for a fitness show, I learned to like fish, so I have this a try. It was AMAZING! The tacos are very filling. We got a steak taco and a fish taco. Don't waste your time with the steak... The fish... More

Order, sit at the surfboard tables, your order is brought to you inside or outside. If you like fish tacos with mango topping or calamari - this place is tops. Trip Advisor and others have given this place rave reviews and we know why. This location was jumping on a Wednesday at 4:00 pm. Still we received our food promptly... More

The fish tacos live up to their reputation, and adding fish to my salad of choice scored me a dinner-size portion of fresh grilled Ono with tasty sauce. The food gets five stars, no question; it's just the wait time that gets the four.

This is a very popular restaurant, we waited in line 10 minutes to order, you are then given a number and select your table. Wait staff brings your food to your table. We dined outside, breeze helped cool it down. After another 15 minute wait the food was delivered to our table. WELL WORTH THE WAIT! We both had the... More

Back for a light dinner for two. Ordered fish tacos and chicken tacos. Each order gets you two tacos with 17 ingredients. Starts with a classic Mexican two corn tortillas, but not the small little ones in Mexico. They're heated on the flat top until the bottom one is crispy and the top one still tender. Fish taco is mahimahi... More
