We had a quiet table in a back corner of the patio that was great. Friendly service and good food (the fish of the day) made it a great experience.

Food here is very tasty, but the service was extremely slow. Some portions were strikingly small, especially for the price. Lamb burger is delicious. Also, you can only get the happy hour menu pricing if you sit inside, but they don’t tell you that until after you’re seated outside.

The Mediterranean fish salad is my wife’s favorite when we visit Wailea. Twice this week!!
Nice, smaller place that is less famous and better value than it’s neighbors.

Wife had Greek (lamb) burger. Over cooked and very chewy. I had lamb gyro. Not bad but meat was a bit crispy.The insider salad was very good.
I know there are Covid concerns but being served wearing blue rubber gloves is kinda creepy
If you’re having cocktails, don’t expect much as the pour is quite short.
Overall, should have stayed in Kihei

Nicer restaurant than the name implies. Based on name it sounded like a Chipotle type place. Food was good, service was good.

The server failed to bring water, brought rare fish when asked for medium (now I’m sick), didn’t check on us regularly, forgot to bring ordered drinks, and disappeared for long periods requiring us to have to check out with other servers.

This primarily Greek restaurant compares equally to one of our favorites in San Antonio, Texas, John the Greek. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding especially the fresh Ahi caught by the owner.

Melissa our server was excellent. Thank goodness because everyone else ran around with a frown. I was totally surprised when the hostess turned away 6 people looking for a drink while they waited for a table at Monkey Pod. The place was dead and pretty much the same when we left. I had the hummus appetizer, very bland. For dinner I had the combo chicken and beef kabob. Three tiny pieces of each for 28.00. Beef was chewy. My husband had the gnocchi with lamb. More like a stew or soup. No one seemed to smile except for Melissa.

The spinach tiropitas are delicious! Since only two come in the order you will want to order a second…. 🤤. The red wine selection was limited and that was a huge bummer. Only had 1 merlot and 2 cabs available by the glass… ended up getting a bottle from napa that did not disappoint thankfully. Also to note checkout also took longer than usual and had to walk up to the bar.

Food was very good. The original server that took the order was good, but the person who served the food and then didn't check if we were good, needed more beverage, etc. was not good. When she brought out what wasn't ordered, all she said is that we don't have that and this is basically what you get.

Great food!
First time we went there for lunch and it was absolutely fabulous: very tasty food, quite and nice ambiance (we were seated outside on the patio) and wonderful service.
Second time we came for dinner and food and service were just as good, but because it was very busy and we set inside ambiance was not as good as first time.
But I still highly recommend this restaurant!

We were very impressed with the flavors and presentation of the Mediterranean platter. My bolognese was delicious. My husband had the lamb gnocchi and loved it. Our only disappointment was that they were out of fish. Otherwise, highly recommend!

Excellent choice for a fresh Greek restaurant. I had the fresh fish and it was delicious. My wife had the lamb pasta which was also good. Started off with the sampler plate. It was quite large but tasty.

Pleasurable- the food and service were outstanding. The ambiance was great, Safely distanced which added to the relaxed atmosphere. I’m not looking forward to tables being so closely set again when standards relax. Ruins the dining experience.

Went here for Mother’s Day. Falafel came out raw twice (cold in the center), then our daughter’s dish came out burned. Our bar drinks ran out and we were never visited again before paying. Pretty disappointing altogether.
