The fresh fish tacos are really tasty! The tortillas have a little grill and crunch. The salsa and the cabbage are seasoned nicely for an all-around delicious bite. The come 2 to and order and are big! The place is usually crowded and is very casual. Enjoy!

Loved the fish tacos! I believe they said it has 17 island fresh ingredients. Amazing flavors. The local plates were also great. Fast service, good food, and good price. Highly recommend.

We have fallen in love with the Fish Taco's here, make the drive every visit to Maui just to have these. Today we tried the Onion Rings! They are great too!!!! Generous portions, and Tacos filled with large chunks of Ono and Mahi Mahi! You won't regret a visit here!
