From The rôse to the salad and fish everything was amazing. I was able to try several different appetizers as well and I have to say this was by far my favorite restaurant on Kauai.

My husband and I are from NYC and pretty tough critics of fine-dining. There are not a lot of noteworthy nice restaurants on the south shore of Kauai, but Merrimans is fabulous. Not just super fresh fish, but sophisticated dishes both in composition and presentation....More
