Humuhumu’s description

Hula's Island Grill in Monterey started off initially with more of a Hawaiiana/Surf feel, but has been deepening its tiki roots over the years, most notably with the addition of their Tiki Room. Carved masks and trim details by the artist Bosko are throughout the restaurant, and a very large Tiki Tony carving shares the space with much bamboo and Leeteg reproductions. The restaurant is enormously popular with locals, and has a very cozy, intimate feel. Traditional drinks include a proper Mai Tai, and Hula's has their own tiki mug (produced by nearby Munktiki) available for sale.

Enjoyed visiting Hula's Monterey. Decor is great, but the modern music is a little odd. Definitely worth a stop for an tikiphile, though.

The food here is awesome. The ceviche is easily the best thing on the menu! You owe it to yourself to try it. I was disappointed with the Tiki drink menu and the knowledge of the bartender. When I asked her what was in one of the drinks she said "rum and different juices." Duh! That's not very helpful. Also the Dr. Funk was nothing like how I know the drink which was kind of lame. It is very much more Hawaiian themed than Tiki themed in it's decore and play rock and roll music which isn't very Tiki at all. But the food was so good, I'd certainly go back.
