Been here twice so far during our visit to Ko'Olina! We love the happy hour from 3-5:30 pm with live music on the outdoor patio and drink and pizza specials. Great vibe! Plus the pies and pizzas are something special! Save room for dessert! And get here early for happy hour...place gets busy later in the evening...Plus they make everything fresh and try very hard to bring in everything local! Highly recommend!

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

This was our 2nd Monkeypod experience. We also tried the one in Wailea. Once again, the food & service was excellent. I tried the chef's special & wasn't disappointed. I opted to try a cider from the bar that I had never had before & when I didn't like it, the bartender was happy to trade it for something else. Highly recommend!

“Great! Great for families too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

We went to Monkeypod three times last week on vacation! Sounds excessive I know! There are great grounds for the kids to run around on while you wait for dinner. The service is excellent, food very tasty! Best of all, they are very accommodating for food allergies. We have a peanut and nut allergy sufferer in our family and they made sure he was taken care of. Kids love the kids burgers and I loved the specials. I feel they could have more choice for dessert though, kind of limited in that area. Great place, good atmosphere and live music too. No wonder we keep going back!

“Happy Hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We chose to dine at the Monkey Pod 2/5 nights during our stay in Koolina. The happy hour menu is great! The $10 pizza was really good and fresh and there was a wide variety of taps to pick from. My wife had the kale salad and I had the fish tacos both were good. My wife kept raving about the salad so we went back on our last night just so she could have it again. My son and daughter both loved the pulled pork sandwiches. It's a bit pricey but all in all a great experience!

“Great Food”

Wonderful place to enjoy a dinner off the property directly across the street from Aulani Disney Resort and the JW Marriott. Mostly organic food choices. A different culinary experience from typical restaurants on the US Mainland.
