I would consider myself a fish taco connoisseur. It's generally my go to dish and I've had them everywhere. This is, unequivocally, the best fish taco I've ever had. From the presentation to the last bite- Everything is perfect. The restaurant is small, you'll probably wait, and you'll most likely share a table. Any of these "inconveniences" are far outweighed...

We decided to brave the crowds at this popular Kihei restaurant and boy are we glad we did. First off, the staff is so welcoming, it's hard to believe they can have such a great attitude in such a touristy area but they were patient, helpful and were happy to explain everything about the food. The fish tacos are exceptionally... More

We had the fish tacos. Very good. Lovely surroundings . Can get a bit crowed around lunch or supper. Usually need to wait for a place to sit down.

We were introduced to Coconut's Fish Café by locals who know the territory. We were not disappointed! They have the best fish tacos on the planet. They now have 2 locations in Kihei - we visited both. So be sure to stop for fish tacos in Kihei if you're visiting Maui.

Best fish tacos ever! And they were gluten free! Little place in a strip mall. Order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Fast, fresh and delicious, definitely recommend checking this place out. Fish and chips, fried shrimp and calamari and even the chicken sandwich were all devoured! Reasonable prices which is hard to find in Maui!

We had the fish burger and fish and chips. The fish was fresh and moist. Food came out quickly and the fountain drinks were really nice. Everyone around us had the fish tacos. They looked really good too. Lots of families with children. Noticed a good kids menu. Nice to eat outside if you want.

We had the mahi tacos that we had been hearing so much about. They came out quickly, and we're really fresh. I didn't prefer the salsa topping, as it was fruit based. Just not my personal preference, but they were still good. The Chef and owner came out and greeted us, was very friendly and it was an overall enjoyable... More
