I hadn't eaten at Merriman's Kapalua for some years. The previous time I'd been with a large group of Canadians who braved the driving rain to walk to the restaurant from their Kapalua Villa, (I being from Maui knew to bring an umbrella and dressed appropriately), and they arrived dripping wet, but in good spirits. We were some of the... More

One of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. Fantastic fish. Everything prepared exquisitely. The best restaurant on Maui.

We made reservations for 10, and they accommodated us quite well and comfortably. Sadly, the only reservation time they had was 7:45pm. We heard the view was stunning, so if you can, time your dinner just before sundown.

How unfortunate that we only discovered Merriman's our last night. Had we known, we would have eaten every meal there. The dining area was open to the sea and the sunset, the table sparkled with fresh white linen, the service was excellent. Thank you, Andy. We enjoyed the dramatic sunset as we had fresh sashimi and a lovely steak, cooked... More

We first dined at Merriman’s on Kauai and loved it. The Kapalua, Maui location doesn’t disappoint. The Kapalua location is very lively with a busy bar scene. Many people actually order food and eat at the bar so if you stop in to catch a quick drink... that probably wont happen. Also if you are going for dinner, make reservations... More

Ok, the facts your in a resort area, most places are overcrowded and overpriced, same here but service was good and food above the average for the islands. It's just a fact that for about 125$ per person, you get a nice place to view the sunset, some decent food and some nice service. Get there for happy hour from... More

With such spectacular views and premium Kapalua surroundings I was shocked at how lame the food was. I ordered the ahi sashimi and I've had better tasting ahi at a chain restaurant in Texas. Absolutely no taste. My husband had a mahi mahi special with prawns and said it was nothing special. The wait staff was warm and adequate but... More

the best thing about here was the view and patio area where I did not sit. The food was so overpriced and mediocre, and small portions I was actually shocked compared to the rave reviews. the mash potato was like soup, no garlic flavour as stated. The bread was doughey... the fish good, but at $49, only 6 bites worth,... More

We were about an hour early for our reservation so we could catch the sunset and we lucked out with 2 seats at their bar on the veranda. It was a great view and the bartender was really warm and knowledgeable - he gave us hints for the Road to Hana and we enjoyed chatting over life in Hawaii. We... More
