I started with these tacos on our trip to Maui. Unfortunately that set the bar high for all other fish tacos. Sorry tacos, but you cannot compare to the multiple level flavors of Coconuts tacos. Everyone was friendly and kind at both locations (yes we at there more than once). Everyone needs to experience this place at least once.

We ordered the famous fish tacos and it was good. The first taco comes out first and then followed by the second taco. There was a lot of food for an afternoon snack. We should have shared it. The fish was a little fishy and the coleslaw and the salsa covered it well.

My wife and I ate there twice while we were visiting in Maui. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Increadibly clean compared to some of the places in Kihea. Had fish & chips and shrimp & chips, they were great. I recommend you try them.

Coconut's Fish Cafe was the first place we ate at when we arrived in Maui as it is highly rated and close to the condos we stayed at in Kihei (Menehune Shores). We were so impressed! I am vegan, but the three other people I was with are not. I was so impressed by the manager and how he helped... More

We could't figure out why there was always a line outside this nondescript restaurant in a Kihei strip mall. After our lunch today, we now understand. Coconuts has hands down the best fish tacos and poke I've ever had. As an avowed agnostic, this was as close to a religious experience as I've ever had. Now to the important stuff.... More

Both locations were clean, quick, and good. Special orders and allergies no problem. Very friendly staff in both locations, a local and visitors favorite.

The fish tacos are huge and filling but my mind wasn't blown. It's very affordable. My husband got the fish and chips. Two, fairly small, pieces of fish but lots of fries with two waters and it was about 30$. It's a small place so seating can fill quickly. I'd go back to try their calamari or shrimp.

Stopped by based on Tripadvisor reviews, and it was apparent the word was out, as the line was out the door. You order at the copunter and then find a table, and they bring you some quite tasty fish tacos (two per order) which really hit the spot after a long day at the beach. The salads are excellent, and... More

Whether for quick and fun dinner or just take out to bring back to the beach (new location just off "Kam 2" in Kihei) - this place rocks. I could eat the fish tacos every day and the kids liked both trying some local, fish flavor while also going to your standard (and very good) hamburgers and hot dogs.

Thank Stephen R
