Love and miss their tacos! My husband and I were on this island for 5 days and had at least 3 meals here. Their fish tacos are HUGE and so tasty! If you're ever in the area, go visit this place. You'll definitely beg for one of these restaurants in your area.

This nice little cafe was close by to the villa we had rented and we stopped in for a quick lunch. Informal but clean and trendy, the staff were helpful with menu choices and offered up some great suggestions. I had the fish tacos which were fresh and tasty. Highly recommend them. Salads were also a hit with the family.... More

We ate dinner at Coconuts last week and it was so good that we returned for a second visit a couple days later. It is renowned for its fish tacos and they do not disappoint. Delicious and flavourful, they were the best fish tacos we ate while on Maui. We also ordered the salad with Blackened Maui Maui. This was... More

Love this place. Great fried shrimp and chips and very good coconut shrimp and chips. Very excited, they have opened a restaurant in Sacramento. But, we'll go back to this location to try again too!

My bridesmaids gave us a gift card for Coconuts for my bridal shower -- luckily for them, they were staying in Wailea, so it was close. It's about 45 minutes from Lahaina. This is a tiny place to grab food, and the menu looked amazing -- they're of course known for their fish tacos, so we had to try them.... More

First time at Coconuts. Have had fish tacos a couple times already on Maui and these are by far our favorite. Very fresh and tasty and huge. Also tried fish and chips, which was good also. Attentive staff checking on our needs while eating. Fairly quick. Waited about 10-15 min for our order. Place was busy, which really says something.

Whenever we're in the area, we always have drove by, but never stopped because they're always busy. This time we went early & just missed the crowd. Service is exceptional! We could tell the owner/manager has high standards, as they even clean the underneath of the tables themselves, and the boss goes around to the guests to make sure everything... More

When your wallet has been emptied, try Coconuts for a friendly, low key, meal that doesn't break the budget. We particularly enjoyed the fish and chips, the fried shrimp, and the fish tacos.

My daughter recommended the fish tacos here and it was good but I like the coconut shrimp better. You can really taste the flavor of the coconut and the shrimp is really tender.
