First the positives- the service is really good! Everyone is super friendly, receptive and appears genuinely happy to serve/help you We started with the coconut shrimp and they were really tasty and fresh. We also ordered the "famous" fish tacos and honestly I have not idea what they are famous for- they aren't even tacos, just a couple of tortillas... More

Wonderful meal at a great price. Service and hospitality were fabulous! Blackened mahi mahi on the house salad was plentiful and delicious. Seafood chowder and fish tacos are also worth mentioning.

We found Coconut's Fish Cafe more or less by accident on the day we arrived. We weren't staying nearby (we were in Kaanapali, the cafe is in Kihei, but we made two trips down to Kihei to dive, and made a beeline for the restaurant for lunch afterward. Portions are enormous, fish delicious, service quick, and the manager came out... More

We went here based on others reviews. We were not disappointed. Friendly service, along with recommendations and instructions on how to eat some of their items. There was 4 of us and we ordered the blackened mahi mahi sandwich, the fish tacos, and the fish and chips. Everything was excellent. The staff was continually cleaning and removing empty plates and... More

The fish tacos are delicious. Go there for them every time we are on the island. Hubby had the fish and chips and it was very good. Cole slaw is tasty. Service was good too. Servers explain what fish is used to prepare your dish, checked to see if they can do anything else for you and cleared the dishes... More
