Have you ever dreamt of a tropical escape in the heart of the desert? Coconut’s Fish Cafe in Scottsdale, Arizona, is here to grant your wish. With an overall rating of 4.4, this establishment brings a taste of the Hawaiian Islands to the Sonoran Desert, promising a dining experience that’s nothing short of extraordinary.


The restaurant boasts a casual and welcoming setting, delivering that laid-back island vibe that’s perfect for easing back into reality. It’s a cozy place where you can enjoy a leisurely meal with friends and family. The friendly staff and spotlessly clean surroundings ensure you feel right at home.


Coconut’s Fish Cafe is known for its fresh and consistently delicious dishes. Whether it’s the grilled shrimp appetizer, calamari, or their famous Fish Tacos featuring Mahi-Mahi and 17 unique ingredients, each bite is a taste of aloha.

The fish is always cooked to perfection, and the variety of seasoning choices is a delight. Don’t miss the blackened Mahi-Mahi; it’s a hidden gem on the menu. Even the sides like brown rice, coleslaw, and cheese are worth raving about.


While the drinks may be a tad pricey for their size, the quality is worth every sip. Plus, the unlimited refills ensure you stay refreshed throughout your meal. Pair your food with craft cocktails or a glass of wine for the complete experience.

In Conclusion

Coconut’s Fish Cafe in Scottsdale, Arizona, keeps the spirit of the Hawaiian Islands alive with its warm ambiance and mouthwatering cuisine. The combination of friendly staff, cleanliness, and exceptional food makes it a must-visit spot for locals and tourists alike.

While we’re saddened by the closure of their Kauai location due to the challenges of the past year, we’re thrilled to have this gem in the heart of the city. If you’re in the area, be sure to drop by and experience a taste of aloha right in the middle of the desert. Who knows, maybe one day they’ll bring the Coconut’s ohana to LA, and we’ll get to enjoy their flavors even closer to home. Overall, we highly recommended!
