First night at Maui, my wife and me had dinner at Monkeypod. It was very busy, even on a Wednesday night. We decided it's a good sign and decided for a seat at the bar.

This was a wonderful surprise on our Maui trip. Celebrated my birthday. The waitress - Sherry was so much fun. The maitai's were the best we had. We had fish and chips, pumpkin ravioli, corn chowder and strawberry cream pie. The ambiance and service were outstanding as well as the food.

This place was hopping the night we went and I suspect it's constantly busy. That's because of the fresh caught fish and inventive menu options and the pies. Service was great. I hope I can go again and try. Ore menu options.

The Monkeypod Kitchen was terrific! We went for Happy Hour and thoroughly enjoyed sharing apps and each had 2 of the fabulous MaiTais. The atmosphere is very nic and the wait staff was excellent. I can't wait to go back again!

My husband and I went to monkeypod on our last night in Maui. Drinks are excellent. The ravioli appetizer is delicious. We pained around $180 for two of us including drinks. Highly recommend this place
