We loved sitting in the bar area for the people watching. Pau Hana (Finished work) time is fun with live music, happy hour pricing on many delicious pupus (tapas) and drinks. Their house red was from Italy so pretty tasty. The pumpkin patch ravioli and lobster deviled eggs are delicious! The Mai Tai is too sweet for me but I can now check it off the list! Dinner reservations can sell out early. Finding a place to sit in the bar area can be challenging so plan on arriving early and expect to 'practice patience' if you arrive during traditional busy times of the day.

We had a group of 14 that included 5 children. They were able to accommodate us on short notice, our group had dietary restrictions and they provided 5 star service during one of their busiest times (Spring Break). The food was excellent. I recommend the ahi.

I had never heard of "Monkeypod" till coming recently to Maui but I am so glad our family had a chance to have dinner here. The ambience is inviting, it has a "cool" factor, the food and service was excellent. Definitely coming back here on our next trip to Maui.

Try the Mai Tai and the cream pie. Great place for kids too at a reasonable price. Lunch and weekend brunch are fantastic!
