We decided to check out this joint after a day of driving around. We were greeted by the owner and gave recommendations. We tried their fish taco and pokè. Excellent texture and well seasoned taco. A bit pricey but cant complain given the quality of food!

Went to Coconut's on a weekday around 12 and had no problem getting a table but by the time we were done there was a wait so give yourself a little extra time. Had the fish tacos and they were fantastic. A little pricey at $13 for 2 tacos but they were very big so the price is reasonable. Best... More

Had lunch on a Saturday with hubby and our little baby. The atmosphere is super casual and really fun. Communal seating style both indoor and outdoor. The staff is amazingly friendly and the owner was doing his rounds of greeting and connecting with all the customers- super nice guy! The menu too is awesome as it also has baby friendly... More

We had the mahi benedict and coconut pancakes and they were delicious! The pancakes were crispy on the outside and super fluffy - hard to achieve! Super yummy and friendly service!

Really good fish tacos and picnic table seating outside and inside. Service is quick and the staff is friendly. Can be difficult to find a seat.

Stopped here on the way back from Wailea, shared fish tacos and coconut shrimp and fries. Double yum! Tacos were messy but delicious, coconut shrimp crunchy and served with yum shoestring fries. Service very friendly and attentive. Loved it.

We discovered Coconuts Fish Café on our visit to Maui in 2014. The word is definitely spreading because they opened a second café in Kihei and have opened or are opening several more cafes in the mainland. Their fish tacos and clam/ono chowder are outstanding!!! What sets Coconut's apart from their competition is customer service. The staff was excellent about... More

Went one evening for dinner. My husband and the fish 'n chips, I had grilled Mahi Mahi. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My husband loved his so much we went back the next day for lunch! Line-ups may look long, but move quickly. Staff are friendly. Fish is fresh and delicious. Atmosphere clean and fun with a surfer theme.

Get the tacos. Get the poke. The chowder is really good too. In Maui's voice, "You're Welcome." - Moana

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.

Thank Kristin T
