Excellent Mexican food prepared without lard. Don't miss the fish tacos. The silver margaritas are some of the best we have ever had. Monico's is located across the street from Kappa Sands. This place is good for lunch and dinner and the staff is very friendly. Lots of locals eat here.

Who can resist a free serving of chips and salsa? Not my husband, nor I!
Got back from our ziplining expedition earlier in the day around 5 and after registering into the hotel, cleaning up, and taking a breather, it was around 7:30. I took a look on yelp for places to eat and realized a lot of places closed at 9! Thankfully Monico's was close to our hotel and we got there in less than 5 minutes.
Great selection. And upon seating we got a serving of chips, hot salsa and mild salsa. They have a great selection of Mexican beers too! (Sol, Tecate, etc). Ordered the (ahi) fish tostada, but I asked for a side serving for the japaleno creme fraiche and the bf got a carne asada burrito.
Everything was delicious! So yum in fact that we got a carnitas quesadilla to go. Came with rice and beans on the side.
Reasonable prices, nice portions, relatively authentic tasting. Franchise out to Oahu please!!!Recommended for:
