Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Aloha, we are open daily from 7:00am to 11:00pm and are located on the waterfront of Waikiki Beach inside the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. We accept reservations & reserve a large amount of space for walk-ins. If your desired reservation is not available, please join our waitlist in person daily. Happy Hour is available daily from 3:30pm-5:00pm (excluding select holidays).

Our chef driven concept is led by the classically trained, award winning chef, Peter Merriman. Peter is a culinary pioneer and one of the founders of Hawaii Regional Cuisine. He has always been inspired by the people and products around him and this spirit has lead the movement to look at food in Hawaii in a new light. Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman embraces this passion! Each item on the menu demonstrates our commitment to craft and showcases high quality, socially conscious ingredients, creative preparations, and perfect execution.

    Excellent staff — friendly, courteous & professional. They were very attentive, but not intrusive, and provided a nice pace between cocktails and courses. Setting affords gorgeous views of the beach and Diamond Head. Handcrafted cocktails are delicious, especially with the honey-lilikoi foam float on top. Broad selection of local beers to suit any taste. Wine selection was also good. Handmade pizzas looked great, but we opted for the House-Made Gnocchi and the Macadamia Nut Crusted Fresh Fish. Both were absolutely perfectly prepared and we enjoyed every morsel! The live music during lunch added a nice layer to the overall ambiance. Only negative was the $15.00 validated parking fee — a bit pricey, even for Waikiki, but we paid it and tipped the valet for their excellent service as well.

    We went to the Monkey Pod in Waikiki expecting the same fabulous experience I've had at other Merriman restaurants, sadly the food was not the same. We got the fish sandwich and fish tacos, the portions were small and tasteless. Hopefully in time they will be able to improve the food and keep up the good reputation these restaurants have. Otherwise service and drinks were excellent.

    a bit too noisy; we couldn't hear each other very well. Great service! The musical act was terrible- had no sense of rhythm.

    Server was excellent. She recommended a cocktail and it was perfect. Hostess sat us a a table next to beach. We were celebrating a birthday. I personally didn’t care for the singer at 12:30 p.m. Since we’re in Hawaii prefer a tropical music song stylings and not a coffee house background songs.

    Loved the drinks and food! Our server was fantastic, I probably would pass on the pie the next time as it was too rich for me, but I'm sure a lot of folks might enjoy it!
