My husband and I ate here when passing through Hot Springs -- what a pleasant surprise! The food was unique, fresh and delicious. The restaurant was attractive and clean and best of all, it wasn't a chain. Excellent value for what we paid.

Service was always pleasant and fast. This place gets jumping and locals have a lot of birthday parties here. The food is fresh and tasty and the bread at the beginning with the olive oil, cilantro and garlic is yummy....

The food here is thoughtful and not the normal dishes that you have eaten a thousand times. Everything is very fresh tasting and exceptional, with extra attention to details. Fresh tortillas. Great use of avocado. We had fish tacos that were delicious. There is some talent that put together these dishes and that is probably why this restaurant has return... More

Thanks to trip advisor ratings, we tried Bleu Monkey Grill. Food, service and atmosphere was excellent. I had the Napa Chicken and did not regret it. Seasonings were different for Arkansas, but very good and not overwhelming. Menu had a lot of variety. I would highly recommend the Bleu Monkey.

We were directed to this eatery by our B & B host and were glad they did. The menu covers a variety of items. We all ordered different plates and everyone was very pleased with their selection. High recommended and reasonably prices.

I had the Bleu Monkey Shrimp. It had a pikkapeppa sauce with pan seared shrimp. Center of the plate had a pat of rice with fresh mango salsa on top. Had a side of black beans and fried plantains. It was incredibly good. There are good vegetarian options as well for non meat eaters. Service was fast.
