“It’s only fitting that Kauai’s tropical coast should boast superior fish tacos: Monico’s succulent fresh ahi version is almost impossible to beat.”

"Monico lets his food do the talking“ 


The Garden Island Newspaper

“Monico's is No Ka Oi (the best) Mexican food on the island. The mole' is the genuine deal and everything is authentic, authentic, authentic. I have spent a few years down in various parts of Mainland Mexico, so I can vouch for it. Generous portions and fair pricing.”

"The best Mexican food on Kauai! Great margaritas too. Nachos are delicious and so are the enchiladas. Truly exceptional Mexican food for Hawaii! My whole family loves this place and we are foodies! Tourists and locals alike all come here and it's always busy! Get there early for dinner!“

“If what you’re looking for is a top-notch margarita, Monico’s has just what you need, only a lot better. The “Sierra’s Super Silver Margarita” is handcrafted using two of the purest tequila available. The result is muy, muy sabroso!”
