“Delicious fish tacos!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The food here was delicious. We had the fish tacos, fish and chips, seafood chowder and the coconut shrimp. Everything was great. Flavorful, and hot. The fried food was not greasy or soggy. But oh man those tacos are great! So zesty, gooey and flavorful! Make sure to eat them with your hands as they suggest for some reason it does make it better!

Best fish tacos, ever. Really good fruit, coleslaw, and salsa combination. Don't pass this place up.

“Best Fish Taco's We've Ever Had!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We went to Coconut's Fish Cafe for dinner one night while staying in Waliea for our honeymoon. We wanted something tasty, quick and low key after a long day on the Road to Hana. We both got the fish tacos, and agreed they were the best fish tacos we've ever had! The fish was fresh, the cheese was delicious and melty, and the mango salsa was perfect. The tacos were so delicious and fresh that we came back 2 more times (one day for lunch and one more time on the way to the airport) during our 5 day stay in Waliea. If you are staying at one of the Waliea resorts, Coconut's Fish Cafe was a nice change of pace from the expensive resort/pool side lunch menus. It was also very quick so we were able to drive there (about 10 minutes away from the Waliea resorts) and get back out to the beach and pool quickly.

“We'll be back!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I can certainly see why everyone says 'You GOTTA go there!' It's a groovy drive-in type place, eat in or sit outside....friendly staff...2 of our party had the fish & chips, raved about em. I had to try the fish tacos because of all the rave reviews....OH yeah! Don't expect Mexican style, these are definitely HAWAIIAN style. Come hungry because you're get 2 plates...I'll certainly be back on my next visit.
