Love the mango salsa and the subtle wasabi flavor of the Cole slaw. Terrific fish tacos. An order of 2 is a lot of food, but trust me, you can eat through the pain. Yum.

We love Coconuts! We haven't tried everything, but the coconut shrimp, the fish tacos and the onion rings were amazing. The place is clean and bright and the service is friendly and quick. Don't let the line-ups deter you.

Much better than you expect from a taco shop in a strip mall. Very pleasant workers, clean and fast. Some of the best tasting fish tacos on the island (I haven’t had them all yet).

My husband is celiac and anaphylactic to tree nuts and he had no issues either time we ate there. Not sure on peanuts as we don't have that allergy in our family.
