We picked this place out of all the restaurants in Cocoa Beach to bring our family visiting from out of town. Everyone loved it! It's a small place with a few tables inside and a few tables outside but they were able to fit our party of six in one spot with two tables pushed together. From the appetizers to... More

The place is tiny, but food is memorable and service top notch! Salad was perfect for four of us to share. Elegant entrees and desserts a must! We were delighted.

Hands down the best tasting, most beautifully presented food I have ever tasted in my 55 years of life! My husband had the macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi with pineapple pina colada sauce and I had the coconut shrimp with mango chili sauce. Both were accompanied by coconut rice, black beans and grilled veggies.

My wife and I are locals and we have never eaten here! Will be back many more times for sure! We had a great experience at the bar seating and the meal was out of this world! We had a Coconut Shrimp App, a Ahi Tuna Entree and the Taco Trio! Mako Shark is a must try on the tacos!... More

Fabulous food and great service. We booked in advance for Saturday night, so glad we did as all evening the staff were having to turn people away. We split the seared red pepper and gorganzola salad to start, delicious! I had the blackened mahi mahi and my husband had the kona coffee salmon - both meals were so tasty and... More

The wait staff is very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and warm, especially Kate! Not cheap, but worth the price. Going back in two weeks. The Kona coffee encrusted salmon was... More

The first thing we do when planning a trip to Cocoa Beach is call for a reservation at the Fat Kahuna. It's a tiny place just steps from the beach. This time we shared the Coconut Shrimp appetizer. Wow! I usually get their outstanding ahi tuna. But this time I tried the blackened Corvina which was excellent.Wife loved the salmon.... More
