Hungry after our trip to Hana and back we were looking for a quick bite and by accident found Coconut's. We loved their coconut shrimp and local style grilled chicken so much, we went back a few days later to (after reading the reviews here) try those famous fish taco's. We found their food to be both delicious and good... More

We saw that this restaurant had received awards for their fish tacos, so ordering was a no-brainer. When they brought out small plates with one taco on each piled high with fish and toppings, my first thought was that it was a big rip-off based on what I had paid. Then he said the next one would be out in... More

We love fish tacos and Coconut's are the best. This small cafe in a strip mall is worth the trip to Maui. The line can get long but trust me it's worth the wait. We'll be back again.

Best Fish Tacos I have ever eaten. A bight of heaven! I don't know what else to say other that if you don't try it at the beginning of your trip you will deeply regret it. Delicious

This place is located in a small shopping complex which maybe hard to find but well worth it. It's sort of a fast food place but the food is great. It's usually very busy with a good selection of local dishes and seafood. The prices are reasonable and service good but the place gets packed during meal times. The place... More

We wanted to eat some lunch away from the resort restaurants...and we also wanted really good fish tacos. Luckily, we found the perfect combination of both! Coconut's Fish Cafe is located in a strip mall in Kihei. You order at the register (employees were friendly) and then you take your number back to your table and your meal is delivered... More
