    Firstly, add leading, top, trailing, and bottom constraints to your UITextView. And then add a height constraint so that it won't be too small when there's no text in it. Here are my constraints: I set its height to greater than 44. Therefore, it won't restrict the height growing. Secondly, disable the scrollable of the UITextView. Finally, we need to notify the UITableView to change the cell height when UITextView changes. Define an event in your custom view cell and trigger it when text changed:

    public partial class MyTableViewCell : UITableViewCell
        public event Action Update;
        public MyTableViewCell (IntPtr handle) : base (handle)
        public override void AwakeFromNib()
            MyTextView.Delegate = new MyTextViewDelegate(this);
        public void UpdateCell()

    Register this event in the controller:

    public override UITableViewCell GetCell(UITableView tableView, NSIndexPath indexPath)
        MyTableViewCell cell = tableView.DequeueReusableCell("Cell") as MyTableViewCell;
        cell.Update += () =>
        return cell;

    Here is the effect: Attached my sample here for your reference.
