This place is a gem. Fresh Mexican food and authentic. The staff are the most friendliest and caring folks I have met. Very professional and gracious. My wife and I, along without adult kids always make a stop at Monicos every time we are in Kauai

We sat indoors and had a choice to sit outside which we had done before. Very excellent service from our waitress. She was well informed and pleasant and checked in on us. The food was good. They have vegetarian options and vegan if you prefer. The rice and beans which accompany the dish are vegetarian and very good. A good... More

Monico's is one place we return to year after year on our annual pilgrimage to Kauai. Hubby always orders chicken burrito with green sauce, his fave and he's never disappointed. I always try something new....this time it was fish tostadas. ...excellent! Service is prompt and friendly. 😊

Fresh ahi burrito covered with house special sauce hit the spot. Pricey but large portions - shareable. Great service and friendly staff.

who would have thought you can get the best Mexican food you've ever eaten in a restaurant in Kauai! We know the family that owns this and this is authentic Mexican food made as they did in Mexico.
