I read about Fat Kahuna's on Trip Advisor but I didn't think we would get in because other reviewers said the wait was crazy long and there were only a few tables. We lucked out and went at lunch time and they were able to seat us right away. The coconut shrimp is so delicious!! We had the kalua pork tacos, mahi mahi tacos, chicken sandwich Hawaiian style, chicken tacos, and shrimp tacos. Every bite was so yummy! And out waitress was excellent. We loved everything about it. It topped off our vacation in Florida!

Our family spent the day at Cocoa Beach and decided to try this place for lunch after reading the reviews. Let me start by saying the reviews do not lie! Although the place is small, it is HUGE in fun and flavor!! We shared the famous coconut shrimp... The best I've ever had! I ordered the blackened Maui tacos. I have never had so many flavors in one bite. AMAZING! The coconut rice with black beans was wonderful as well!! Also enjoyed a slice of fresh key lime pie for dessert... Delish!!! Everything is made from scratch so I wouldn't recommend this place if you were in a hurry. But totally worth the wait! Prices are on the higher side, food presentation is of a 5 star restaurant. I would totally recommend this place to anyone!

This is a small restaurant near Coconuts on the Beach. We first tried to go on a Tuesday night to find it's closed on Monday and Tuesday. There aren't a lot of tables and they have beer and wine only (despite a large bar). The wait staff was extremely helpful and attentive and the food was great. We had the coconut shrimp which was mind blowing, I had a white fish that was fantastic. The coconut rice was unbelievable. Very happy we tried this place and we will be back on our next trip to Cocoa Beach.

My friends and I have gone to Cocoa Beach for three years in a row now. We have tried around 30 of the restaurants there and this was one of the best meals I've ever had. We made reservations earlier in the day since the place is small. It is a longish wait for your food, but that is standard in many places I've traveled that aren't in the States. The people at the table next to us were visibly irritated that it took 1-1.5 hours for their food, but it is well worth it, and seriously? You are on a beach, drinking sangria with friends or family. Who cares if it takes multiple hours for food that good! We had sangria, some bacon cheese fries and then shark and chicken entrees. It was amazing, and the owner was super engaging and friendly with all of the guests!

Between the ocean and A1A is a small restaurant with excellent food. Not many tables and a limited menu are no impediment to a fine meal.
