We waited too long for our food and it did not taste good. The pork special of the house was reheated after being frozen and therefore it still was partially cold. The rest of the plate lacked flavor. We were hoping it was better.

granted we had a large party of 20 but we did call ahead. A friend and I ordered the entrada Nica - simple, small.... There was over an hour gap between our meal and the first of our group served; and we waited 2 hours for our meal. Although we had interpreters with us, they got several orders wrong. The food was OK but nothing more. Definitely worse with respect to service and food than previous trips to Monkey's over the past couple of years. And there will be no trips in the future.

Food took over an hour and a half to arrive; and wasn't all that good.
Waitress got half of our orders wrong, even though we repeated them. We're all native Spanish speaking; so it wasn't a language barrier.
Owner came to the table to apologize and gave us a bottle of cheap wine to try to compensate.
Place is very rustic, but nice looking; all wooden. No A/C, uneven tables, uncomfortable chairs.
Might be a good place for a few drinks at night. I'll never know...

While I did not have the opportunity to eat there, I can testify that this is a great place to have a few drinks in the afternoon. Centrally located, they have an open-air upper deck that is just the place to enjoy a drink or two with a bird's-eye view of the activity in the street. I also enjoyed the fact that the ambience was such that I was able to relax, study my Spanish, and even have a conversation without being distracted by too-loud music.

The Monkey has an upper deck with a great view of the North Church and adjacent park. Unfortunately, the food is mediocre at best and way over priced.
