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.

We stopped here for the famous fish tacos after a helicopter tour. The pilot lives in Kihei & told us he liked Coconut's. It was a great choice for lunch. I noticed many locals eating here.

We ordered the fish tacos, brown rice with Ono grilled fish, and grilled mahi mahi blackened seasoned with mixed green salad and papaya dressing. BOMB! The mahi mahi was on point! The fish tacos was really good, definitely stood up to the hype! My husband had the Ono rice plate and said it was pretty good. Would definitely come back... More

We were 4 weary, hungry travelers when we happened upon Coconut's in a Maui strip center. Locals sitting outside told us not to miss the great food. We all ordered fish tacos but should have made it only 2 orders, as 2 tacos came per order, and the portions were huge. The fish was freshly pan seared and came piled... More

We were staying in Kihei at a VRBO and this place was all over the guestbook as a must try. The fish tacos are excellent, they definitely live up to the hype. I only knock them down a notch because they are a little unbalanced - way too much cabbage, but that's an easy problem to remedy. This is definitely... More

AAAAAAMMMAAAZINGGGGG FISH TACOS AMD AAAAAAMMMAAAZINGGGGG SERVICE! The fish tacos are definitely a must and add on the hot sauce on the side. Pure deliciousness! My people are French fry connoisseurs and they LOVED them. We were referred by two locals and couldn't be happier. Don't let the line scare you - you won't be sorry!!!

The food was really good for the price. Service was fast even though there was a long line. The owner came out and chatted with guests. I would definitely go back if I found myself in Maui again.

Thank Atalanta8
