This restaurant was good and the service was excellent. I believe the people on this island could really show the restaurants in the US what service is all,about.

I found it overly expensive and the fish that I had - a Veracruz garoupa - was overly fishy in taste and even the salad tasted of brine. Fortunately, my husband's tuna, which was the catch of the day, was fresh, but the bill came up to 450 pesos with tip. Go next door instead to recently opened Bahama Mama,... More

Monchis was wonderful! The food was delicious. I had the chicken and pineapple fried rice. The owner was friendly and held a nice conversation with us. The restaurant is in a neighborhood and has that quaint feel. We also got tequila shots on the house...now that's great service!

These people are so nice and the food is awesome. I love their arrachara burritos. The drinks are fantastic as well. I woud reccommend the trip to mid island to enjoy their food.

We ate dinner at Monchis three times while on our trip. The food is out of this world and so is the staff. The food we had which was all amazing included: Nachos, Shrimp wrapped in bacon, the vera cruz fish, the chipotle fish, fish tacos, and the tuna steak. The drinks are great and everything is very moderately priced.... More

Outstanding meal and drinks!! were so great with our little kids and such attentive service. Great shrimp wrapped in bacon & blue cheese. chef came out & said if we (including the little kids) didnt like anything, he'd make us something else for free! now that's how you win over your customers. Great food and even better service.
