Monkeypod Kitchen | Best Place to Eat and Drink in Ko Olina

There aren’t many places to eat and drink in Ko Olina that are not a part of one of the resorts (Disney Aulani, Four Seasons, Marriott, etc.). Thankfully it just so happens that the one among few is actually the best place to do so – Monkeypod Kitchen. This lively double-decker yet dim lit establishment is full of both resort visitors and locals from the Kapolei area. It’s also where island hoppers from Maui go when visiting Ko Olina, as they enjoy Monkeypod Kitchens in Wailea and Ka’anapali too. This location has an expansive wine menu with a good number of locally made wines, and the same is true of their craft beer menu, with local labels such as Maui Brewing Company and Honolulu Beer Works. Yes indeed, this casual fine dining eatery is properly Hawaiian and that fact is reflected in the menu. We have listed our recommendations below:
