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.

We ordered the famous fish tacos and it was good. The first taco comes out first and then followed by the second taco. There was a lot of food for an afternoon snack. We should have shared it. The fish was a little fishy and the coleslaw and the salsa covered it well.

My wife and I ate there twice while we were visiting in Maui. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Increadibly clean compared to some of the places in Kihea. Had fish & chips and shrimp & chips, they were great. I recommend you try them.

Coconut's Fish Cafe was the first place we ate at when we arrived in Maui as it is highly rated and close to the condos we stayed at in Kihei (Menehune Shores). We were so impressed! I am vegan, but the three other people I was with are not. I was so impressed by the manager and how he helped... More

We could't figure out why there was always a line outside this nondescript restaurant in a Kihei strip mall. After our lunch today, we now understand. Coconuts has hands down the best fish tacos and poke I've ever had. As an avowed agnostic, this was as close to a religious experience as I've ever had. Now to the important stuff.... More

Both locations were clean, quick, and good. Special orders and allergies no problem. Very friendly staff in both locations, a local and visitors favorite.
