Not much I can add to the reviews on this site, but I can safely say that the seared tuna dinner I had there last week was the best meal I have had for at least several years. It was a close call to get there on time as a friend and I were driving from Sarasota and we walked... More

The food and service at Fat Kahuna's was EXCELLENT! I can't rave enough about the coconut rice and the friendliness of the staff. Our dinner here was the highlight of our trip to Cocoa Beach!

Oh this place is a tucked away gem. Tonight I braved the elements and parking nightmares (due to road construction) to eat here for the third time since finding this place. Tonight I went with the "surf and surf" of macadamia nut encrusted mahi with pina colada sauce, kona coffee rubbed salmon, grilled veggies, black beans and rice. Paired with... More

Service and food were excellent! I had the coconut shrimp app and the Mahi mahi fish and chips. Both were excellent. Could have stopped with the shrimp. A small but very inviting atmosphere. Next time in Cocoa we will definitely go back.

Excellent meal with well mannered staff. A place I will remember to return to when in Cocoa Beach. Had the Royal Hawaiian surf and turf. Pleasantly surprised with unique tastes and presentation.

The only thing better than the people and the presentation is the taste and quality of the dishes. We love the grilled shrimp and all of the fresh catch choices. Have. Ow been 3 times and headed back for a 4th. Small, intimate with caring staff.

Nice that it was small and quaint. Food was very good. Service was good although they over do the Hawaii thing. Also found it odd that they asked us to step outside while they clean the tables for us. It was a bit cold.

we were just passing through for the night, so I looked on trip advisor for a restaurant. The food was amazing. The ladies were pleasant and helped with the menu. I had macadamia nut Maui-Maui. The presentation was beautiful, and the fish flaky. The restaurant is small, but worth it. we ended up having a piece of pie, . it... More
