This was our first time at Merriman's,at my brothers recommendation and for a special night out while staying in Lahaina. We arrived early thinking there would be other things to check out, however once you arrive and submit to the Valet, you are pretty locked in. I found my way to the beach next... read more

Merriman's Kapalua is one of the best restaurants on Maui. The food is outstanding, the service impeccable and the ambiance unparalleled. It is definitely worth a special trip from anywhere on the island to enjoy a dinner there.

This was our best meal (so far) in Maui. The restaurant and the views are breathtaking. The staff is so accommodating. The food is pricey but soooo worth it. We are trying to go back before we head home at the end of the week !

We couldn't get in for the sunset hour so we showed up early and snagged a seat at the end of the bar with a perfect view of the sunset. Then they came over right as the sun was setting and gave us a table right in the corner against the glass. Best choice. A little rain came and they... More

Had a great meal at Merriman's, the food was excellent and the service was lovely. Must Try- Malasada's are outstanding! I would take an 11 hour flight just for these!

Enjoyed the place overall. Food was good but not great- really expensive for not being great. The restaurant is gorgeous and there is seating inside and outside. Service was amazing and they make great cocktails and have a fantastic wine list. Would go back but probably just for appetizers and drinks during sunset.

We have been to Merriman's several times but this last trip was spot on. Every bite was heaven and the drinks were perfect. The Kalua pork quesadilla was amazing! I am still drooling thinking about it. Service as great, very helpful. The setting is beautiful, it really is a special place.

We had dinner here twice last week. Come just before sunset and get a killer view with excellent food! It is pricey, but think you can eat outside and order drinks and appetizers and still enjoy the amazing view. We saw a whale breach 8 times in a row..what a treat!

Really superb. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. Menu was imaginative and well-executed. Very nice environment, well appointed facility. DO NOT pass up the desert menu.
