Father's Day in Santa Cruz, what is better than that! My family and I spent the afternoon in Santa Cruz for Father's Day and ended the day with a wonderful meal at Hula's Island Grill. I have eaten at the one in Monterey and decided to try the Santa Cruz location. I was not disappointed! We even took another couple and their son, they loved it too. My wife had the chicken sticks and I had the fish cooked with macadamia crust....I love the ginger coleslaw that comes with it. The portion of fish was large and fresh....the poke appetizer was also delicious, fresh and the cubes of ahi melted in your mouth. AND the tiki drinks were amazing! Be careful, they can pack a punch. Service was efficient and friendly and they accommodated our younger diners with no problem. The restaurant is decorated in tiki tradition. Prices were right and food was great. Now, besides the location in Monterey, I have a "go to" restaurant in Santa Cruz. The friends we took said it was the best meal they had had in a while and loved the Duke's pork dinner.
