My wife and I went to Monterey from 12-27-08 to 12-29-08.
After reading the reviews, I made sure that this would be our 1st stop when we got there.
We ordered the Sweet Potato Fries - these were yummy.
The ice tea - also very good.
This is the good part.
Now to the bad, our mains.
I ordered the CocoJoe's Chicken plate. To begin with, everything was very sweet. Too sweet if you ask me. The only thing that was good was the rice and beans. The chicken was glazed in this really sticky sweet sauce and the fired plantains were way too sweet to be eaten. My wife had the Crispy Coconut Shrimp Rolls and Salad. The dip that came with the rolls again was way too sweet and the salad also has this really sweet dressing on it.
Maybe it was the things that we ordered, but I would say pass on this place.
The service was only ok at best. Must have been the time that we walked in. They were open for service till 2Pm that day and we walked in about 1:30 PM. Our server had a very indifferent look about her and appeared only to want to get us out as we stayed beyond the 2:00 PM lunch hour. I think we left at like 2:20 PM.
