We ate here 4 times during our visit and enjoyed everything we ordered. The fish tacos are the best because of the mango salsa and slaw. The fish & chips are good too. You order at the counter and are seated with a number and when your food is ready they deliver it to you table. No tipping required which saves enough money for another dish. It can be crowded at times, but it's worth the wait!

Our group of 5 ordered a variety of foods to go yesterday. Some were good, some were not. First of all, it's a lot of food. We had tons of leftover fries. The crab cakes lacked flavor and they were tough. Most went in the garbage. The fish and chips were good, but one person didn't like the fact that they weren't fried English style. Instead, they are coated in breadcrumbs. The fish was a bit dry too, but we added malt vinegar so it didn't bother us. The fish tacos were okay, but there is a lot of flavors going on. Personally I don't like corn tortillas but appreciated the bottom tacos that was very crispy. Everyone agreed that the onion rings were the best tasting item we ordered. We wouldn't go back.

We have eaten at Coconut's Fish Cafe 3 times in July. The fish tacos have an amazing combination of ingredients that surprise and delight with each bite. It is like eating mango salsa and slaw with fresh fish. The man taking our order told us that one order was large enough for two adults...he was right! We needed knives and forks to eat the tacos but some people were up to the challenge of holding them. Next time we tried the fish burgers....so perfect! It is a toss up what to order! The chowder was full of seafood in a delicious broth.
The tables and benches look like surf boards and the tv screen shows entertaining feats.
This restaurant has all the right ingredients...fast service, cleanliness, excellent attention from the staff who check back during your meal, an inexpensive menu, and wonderful food.
At peak hours the lines can get long and the tables in short supply but the service is fast and carry out to the local beaches is worth a visit even during busy times.
We will return soon!

Crispy yet softly seared and topped with chopped mango, yum ! Definitely a unique blend of spices, simple and full of flavor.
