The fresh fish tacos are really tasty! The tortillas have a little grill and crunch. The salsa and the cabbage are seasoned nicely for an all-around delicious bite. The come 2 to and order and are big! The place is usually crowded and is very casual. Enjoy!

Loved the fish tacos! I believe they said it has 17 island fresh ingredients. Amazing flavors. The local plates were also great. Fast service, good food, and good price. Highly recommend.

My wife and I shared the macadamia nut pancakes with sliced bananas and homemade coconut syrup...amazingly good! Even sharing the pancakes we still had leftovers and brought it home for tomorrow.

We have fallen in love with the Fish Taco's here, make the drive every visit to Maui just to have these. Today we tried the Onion Rings! They are great too!!!! Generous portions, and Tacos filled with large chunks of Ono and Mahi Mahi! You won't regret a visit here!

Service was friendly but the food is fast food. The calamari was over fried but my parents ate it anyway. French fries were a hit. Wouldn't need to go back.

This place is a bustling restaurant with picnic (surfboard) tables inside and out. There were families everywhere and many people picking up take-out orders. The fish filet I had was thick and larger than the bun. Moist and juicy and melted in my mouth. The prices are good and the service very friendly, even when they were very busy. We... More

Went to Coconuts for dinner on our recent visit to Kihei. We found the atmosphere friendly and loved sitting at a table in the shape of a surfboard. The food is good, service is quick, and priced right. Highly recommend.

The fish eaters in our party thought the food was great. The rest of us, not so much. But hey it has fish in the name so I was perfectly satisfied with a good chicken sandwich. The fries were good but nothing to write home about. Very clean. Good service.

I was surprised by how good everything was. AHI bowl is probably the best I've ever had but even the grilled chicken was great.
