Kate and her colleagues welcome you into this small restaurant as if they are inviting you to a special dinner. And the dinner was special. Both my wife and I had the surf and turf: one Mango Mahi and Filet Mignon , the other Coconut Shrimp and Filet Mignon. The meal was superb and included large amounts of excellent vegies.... More

Fat Kahuna's is a must try! Delicious well prepared fish with mouth watering side dishes. And try the sangria it's outstanding. Highly recommend if you like big portions of outstanding meals, this is your place! If it's busy it's worth the wait!

We had a fabulous dining experience. Food, service, and ambiance were all incredible in this beautiful, cozy spot in Cocoa Beach near the beach. We had the shark, tuna, and shrimp which were all prepared to perfection. Gorgonzola fries were to die for. Entire wait staff was friendly and we felt like family before we left the restaurant. Make sure... More

Very small restaurant. Reservations are a must. The food is excellent. The portions are not enormous (thank you!) and the food is consistently well-prepared and presented. One of our very favorite restaurants in Cocoa Beach.

On a trip to Cocoa for the Thanksgiving week. We did not have a reservation but after a short wait my friend and I were seated at the bar. This is a small restaurant so reservations are recommended.

Thank you for the review! We appreciate it! The construction project outside shuts down before we open for dinner, and there is a roomy sidewalk allowing full access to our restaurant! The downtown Beautification project will be amazing upon completion. Aloha More

We got a reservation for 8 o clock. Our table was ready with our name on it. This is a charming, very small Hawaiian style restaurant. Surf porn on the tv screen, and Hawaiian music. The food was incredible. I had macadamia crusted MahiMahi and my husband had seared ahi tuna. Both were spectacular. Plus it is right next door... More
