The location is oceanfront. It really is paradise found! The food is so delicious and fresh. We had two wonderful dinners here while staying at the Ritz Kapalua.

We have gone to Merriman's on Kauai and the Big Island and they never disappoint. Now don't expect an inexpensive meal, expect a wonderful culinary experience. We could not get reservations on the day we called, so we opted for happy hour which was just fine. A small menu but happy hour prices!! The veranda is spectacular and we watched... More

Don't know where to start...from the hostess, waiters, ambiance, drinks and food....all were above our expectations. Be sure to be there for sunset. I understand their soup is outstanding. I did not try it. My prawn appetizer was excellent. The filet was just as I ordered and was so tender I could have cut it with a fork. If you... More

We ate here on the recommendation of locals, but it wasn't one of the best food experiences we had. While the service was excellent, the view was stunning, and the food was tasty, I felt ripped off. Both my husband and I ordered the 1/2 portion option, where we could try 2 different entrees. The food was very tasty, but... More

We took the shuttle from the Ritz-Carlton to this little piece of heaven🙏🌴🍷. We enjoyed the bar for drinks, then dined to the chef's special. Flavors seem to be heightened when sitting in the open air and background music.

We decided to try this place at the recommendation of a co-worker of my wife, who works in the High End kitchen equipment retail space... So they are all foodies. We've tried the MonkeyPod's around Oahu, and loved them, and heard that Meriman's was there top of the line, gourmet restaurant... They were absolutely right. We did go here for... More

We are at several Merriman's, Hulu and Monkeypod locations on Maui and Oahu during our 10 day stay. The Marriman's at Kapalua was a treat, with tables overlooking the water, music and a festive Hawaiian atmosphere.I loved the salt pigs so much I brought home three to remind me!!!

This is a ticking place! Fish predominates the menu. All served Hawaii style with attention to detail. Ahi is flawless as is magi magi. The salads are fresh and tasty. Wine list has a number of half bottles too. Recommended

First off, let me say that Merriman's (all islands) is our favorite upscale local restaurant group. We ALWAYS dine at Merriman's if we're on Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island. We had a nice meal at the Kapalua location, service was excellent and we appreciate that they are able to accommodate my husband's medical need for gluten free foods. However,... More
