We had a great spot next to the open window with a view to the sunset. The short rib appetizer was delicious as was the chicken. Cocktails were also unique. Make sure you enjoy this restaurant. It's located at the Kukui'ula Shops in Koloa.

We arrived at our lodging in Poipu Beach around 7 pm, and went to Merriman's based on reputation and some of the reviews. We decided to just eat at the downstairs bar since we had no reservation, and enjoyed fish tacos and a hamburger. The setting was just what we wanted, the draft beer was cold, and a small but...

When we called for a reservation for 3 people for dinner they only had 5:00pm and 7:30pm. We took the earlier one. When we arrived maybe three table were full. Didn't exactly receive the warmest of greetings from the hostesses. Our waitress had only been on the job two days and was very nice but needed better training. The menu... More

We had high hopes for our visit and while we all enjoyed our dinners, the service was lacking. For the prices, we would have expected to have our wine glasses filled and to be able to order dessert without having to hunt for our waiter. But what put us over the edge was when our waiter failed to bring us... More

Delicious. Fish and steak arrived a little later, delicious, yummy. This restaurant is a class act. Jordanana kept stopping by.😀desert went back with us. Delicious sandwiches. This is... More

Hard to rate. Some things were great. The monchong was terrific. A salad with beets exceptional. Also the wine flights were a really nice idea. On the other hand the caesar salad was ordinary but most surprising the opakapaka was dry and almost inedible. At $49 for that dish it is really unacceptable, especially for a classic Hawaiian fish.

We tried to make a dinner reservation at our resort at Tidepools but they were booked solid. The Grand Hyatt Concierge recommended Merriman's and Keoki's…we chose Merriman's and what a great choice we made! I had filet mignon and my husband had the mahi magi. Both were divine and my steak was so delicious! When a restaurant boasts prime US... More

a perfect combination of innovative, yet jummy food, excellent Service and a perfect ambiance. Of all pretty good restaurants in Poipu this is the best.

We've been in Kauai for 10 days and this was by far our favorite restaurant. We've eaten here 3 times for dinner and my husband and I both get the duo with 2 different types of fish. Everything was cooked perfectly and really flavorful - I wish we had more days on the island so we could keep trying everything... More
