Where should I begin to share a perfect Saturday evening in Kapalua?A new moon reflecting off the water, no less than three newlywed couples swept away in the arms of each other at sunset off the expansive lanai jetting into the turquoise water... Truly a paradise setting but that is just the start to the magic. My husband and I had course after course of the most magnificent tastes from our coconut foam topped cocktails to sashimi and poke appetizers that melted in our mouths. We then feasted the super fresh garden salad with compressed pineapple that tasted like nuggets of pure gold. My husband had the rib eye steak that is was sure had been hand-rubbed throughout its life because the texture was heavenly. I had the monchung and paired with the taro cakes and seasonal veggies that completely satisfied by aloha spirit of local flavors. We were so over the top full that we couldn't imagine another bite but found such charm in our waiter that we shared a French Press carafe of Mokka coffee, an island speciality brew that was dark, delicious with a hint of chocolate. We leisurely spent three hours filling our senses with the spectacular sights, friendly atmosphere and aloha lounge music playing just behind us.

This was a place we went after looking at tripadvisor for ideas in the area. It was ranked number one with heaps of reviews (a significant sample size we decided :)). In any event, we were four (two couples) and were thrilled. From the atmosphere, to the full occupancy, great service, appetizers, dinner and even some dessert. What a wonderful experience!!!
We also - just FYI - asked to buy the houmus because it was so amazing (made with local taro) so we could bring it to the beach for snacking tomorrow with veges and they sold us some!!!! So very amazing.

My husband and I returned to Merriman's for a anniversary trip. We were given a perfect oceanfront table as requested in our reservations . Our server Patrick was very helpful in choosing our entrees. I had the Monchong which I highly recommend . The evening was great due to the food selection, the warmth of our server and the amazing view of the ocean. Peter Merriman's goal is to make everyone feel as if they were at home when dining. We agree that for us the evening felt just like that. I highly recommend this place.
