Dine in the most stunning oceanfront location on the island of Maui, directly on the point of majestic Kapalua Bay. Merriman's Kapalua offers a farm-to-table concept, with 90% locally sourced award-winning menu, showcasing the island's freshest fish, seafood, meat and produce. The opulent restaurant offers indoor-outdoor seating, spectacular sunset views, and an oceanfront deck. Prix Fixe dinner offered daily from 4:30 - 8:00 pm. Reservations are highly recommended.
I have celebrated many birthdays at Merriman's and always looked forward to it, as I did this time. But, it has changed. The food was ok, not as good as previous visits, but definitely not worth the 3 course prix fixe menu at $95 per...person that is now the only option they offer. $95 for 3 courses that were just ok is overinflated and silly. We knew the price going in, and believed we would get a great experience, but were really disappointed for what we received for that price. The service was excellent, as it always is. But the food selections and quality were just not $95 per person good. The other disappointment was the change to the grounds. After dinner, you used to be able to sit on the patio area next to the water, around a fire pit, with a view of what seemed every star in the galaxy. It was breathtaking. There is no more view at all. There are now tables under a tent on the patio, which ruins the view from your table in the restaurant, as well as takes away any spot to enjoy the stars after dinner. I'm glad we have many memorable birthdays there, under the stars, but we won't be back. There are so many fabulous places to dine in Lahaina and Kaanapali that don't require an overpriced, underwhelming prix fixe and that don't require a deposit to even make a reservation. It's just not worth it. Spend your $95 (if even that much) elsewhere to enjoy better food and a better view.More
We celebrated a birthday party at a very special restaurant. Merriman’s was delightful. The poke appetizer, cucumber gazpacho, mahi-mahi, and fillet were excellent. My wife said that the homemade donuts may have been the best desserts that she has ever had. Highly recommend!
We were a family of 6
The three course meal was pretty good
More memorable was the seating and the view than the food itself.
Service was great. We ordered a variety of entrees and everyone like the food
It is expensive, but it is worth it. The location is sublime and the sunset views from the outdoor seating area are beautiful. The food is excellent; I cleaned my plate for each course. The portions are not too big, which allows you to really...savor the meal in its entirety. Definitely a special experience that is worth indulging in.More
Even with a prie fix limited menu you still cannot go wrong at a Peter Merriman restaurant. Excellent preparation and presentation with great staff/service and wonderful food. Definitely a must go place if you’re on Maui.
I have never eaten anywhere where literally ever bite I put in my mouth was just outstanding. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the Chow Fun Noodles with Shrimp and the Kalua Pork Quesadilla for the first course, both were great, although I think...we both preferred the noodles, then we had the Pan Seared Mahi Mahi & Peppercorn Ribeye. I’ve never had gnocchi, it was so flavorful. The views are stunning, our sever was very friendly and helpful. Top notch experience throughout, even the valet was super professional and made us feel welcomed. Overall excellent time and I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will eat here again.More
