Food was amazing, service was great, and a very large menu makes everyone happy. Saw all the fresh veggies being carted in the morning while we were eating at Passion and were not disappointed when we had a chance to eat them. Make sure to ask for the chipotle hot sauce :)

If you are in Kapaa and want to eat good Mexican food, my suggestion is Monicos. The Mexican food is delicious! I had the Seafood Burrito. The portion is large and reasonable priced. The ingredients are fresh and cooked to order. The table service was good but the downside is that be prepare to wait at least 20 to 30 minutes to get your food. For me, the wait is worth it. If you want fast Mexican food, better you eat at Taco Bells down the road. Anyway, typical Mexican fare, they give you bowl of chips with fresh tomato salsa and dipping sauce to munch on while you wait for your food to arrive. Better come early if you want to have a table inside. They have picnic tables outside. Also, if you asked to have your leftover boxed there charge you extra. I noticed a $2.50 added to my bill.

It is one of the best mexican restaurants on the island. They are extremely busy so unless you want to wait a while you better get there right at five o'clock when they open.

We got the seafood nachos ($16) which were good and novel. Very expensive fish tacos and burritos (compared to places like San Diego), but food was good.

Outstanding food, especially the fish tacos!
I have not had a disappointing dish yet.
I am sure others would find the atmosphere vibrant, exciting and lively.
Alas to my sensitive ears it is a fearful racket only slightly less worse than a brass band.
Solution... The great takeout menu. Love Monico's Hate the noise.
