After arriving at The Four Seasons on Maui, we didn't want to leave the hotel the first night so ended up having dinner at Spago's. What a horrible way to start a vacation at the Four Seasons! More on that one later! Anyway, we had heard through guests at the hotel about Monkeypod, so decided try it after having a wonderful dinner at one of Bev Gannon's restaurants. Well...............................It had to have been one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long while. Coming from San Francisco, where we have some of the top restaurants in the world, Monkeypod held it's own with the liveliness, the staff and most of all the food!! The Ahi Tuna was the best! And I mean, the best!! I have never had tuna that good as all the AAA tuna is sent to Japan and the US gets the next best thing. It was amazing! We ate our dinners so slow savoring each bite, that we ended up staying for a leisurely 3 hours! To start the dinner, the pumpkin squash ravioli's are a must, as well as, the beet salad. But it only gets better! The desserts! Ah, yes, the desserts! I had banana cream pie one night, but had heard rumors about the Strawberry marscapone cream cheese dessert. So light, so creamy, so wonderful, you just indulge. Calories!? Who cares when you have something so good! We actually ended up going back three times. The Mahi Mahi is a must, too! Makes the Four Seasons Spago's Mahi Mahi taste like McDonalds, and I'm not kidding! Had I known about this restaurant the first night we would have been there all 8 nights! The staff is wonderful, the food is served perfectly (coordination is like the San Francisco Ballet), but best of all it's fresh, it's great and it's fun! Don't miss this GEM of a restaurant!!!
