If you need a break from Hawaiian food, this is it! We walked from our hotel and had a great dinner here. Delicious margaritas and the garlic shrimp quesadilla was amazing! I wish they offered more chips and salsa for free...but alas...this is Hawaii and nothing is free!

This was first time going to this restaurant and was recommended by the bartender at our hotel. Service was great and staff were friendly and attentive. Fish tacos were great and fish was fresh catch of the day. All ingredients tasted home made and was awesome. Highly recommend this place for fresh fish and tacos of any type

This place has the best food! Folks at our hotel recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. The flavors were incredible and everything was so fresh and delicious. We wish we would have found this place earlier on our trip because we definitely would have eaten there again.

This is one of those places you wish someone had pointed out before you found it.

A clean premise with friendly staff. The menu had a full range of Mexican items that sounded great, There is also a burger/fish/salad grouping.

On this particular day the fish was ahi and it was fresh. I had the fish sandwich and my wife had the fish salad. The (did I say fresh) fish was grilled perfectly and the salad greens and sandwich vegetables were, yes, fresh and generous. I almost removed some of the perfectly grilled onion slice from my sandwich but gladly didn't. They added a perfect level of subtle sweetness to the sandwich making it one of the best I've eaten.

Wish we had more time on Kauai to go back!

You can always count on great Mexican cuisine. We are residents of Kauai and when we look for a place to have dinner on Kauai's East Side, Monico's is usually on the top of the list. You can't go wrong at Monico's.
