Coconut’s Fish Café, Maui Specialties
Coconut’s Fish Café features delectable fish creations utilizing Hawai‘i’s favorite denizens of the deep – mahimahi (also called dorado or dolphinfish), ‘ono (wahoo), and ‘ahi (yellowfin tuna). Coconut’s is famous for their amazing Maui fish tacos, with perfectly grilled ‘ono and mahimahi and seven layers of delicious ingredients. Coconut’s vast menu offerings include favorites such as Coconut Shrimp, a large selection of salads, fish sandwiches, fish or chicken on brown rice, and seafood pasta. For those who just aren’t into fish but want a delicious meal, Coconut’s also offers steak or chicken tacos, burgers, grilled chicken, chicken pasta, and more. Vegetarian options are available. Founder Michael Phillips even incorporates some of his mother’s recipes, which include a variety of sauces, and incredible seafood chowder.
How to Get There
Both locations are on South Kīhei Road in Kīhei. The first location is in Azeka Shopping Center in the heart of Kīhei. Look for Foodland; Coconut’s is in the building to the left. Their other location is about a mile or so south of Azeka Shopping Center. From Azeka’s, go south on South Kīhei Road towards Wailea. After you pass Alanui Ke‘ali‘i Road, start looking on the left. You’ll see Dolphin Plaza, which has a statue of two dolphins in front of it; the next little shopping center on the left is where Coconut’s other restaurant is located.
