We've been to Merrimans a couple of times over the past 5 years. It is still one of our favorites. My husband (vegetarian) enjoys the Taro Enchilada. This time, I ordered the Ahi entree. The Ahi was excellent with a smoky crust and raw center....More

The top floor of this establishment was great. I had pork quesadillas and my husband had seafood pastA! It is not cheap but exceptional quality!

Great restaurant, very romantic with a great sunset. Everything but one dish we had was delicious. However, both my wife and myself thought that while it is touted as the fanciest restaurant on the Island, Eating House 1849 was better. The staff was great, and...More

The upstairs restaurant has a gourmet menu. Quality of fish outstanding - local - fresh and well prepared. Intersting Appetizers. Nice music. Good selection of wines. Well worth the visit .

The service and meal at Merman's was solid, but given the prices I would have expected a little more. Two of us had seafood linguini and the shell fish was well prepared, however the fish itself was overcooked and lacking in any flavor. Two others...More

We wanted a light, but delicious meal at a reasonable value. What we got was overpriced, mediocre miniscule portions and no ambience. We ordered the $13.95 Tomato Salad. The five slices of tasteless tomatoes, four slices of Mozzarella and garnishes hardly passed as a salad....More

Unquestionably one of, if not the, finest restaurant on Kauai. A mostly locally sourced menu with a flare for the exotic. Priced well for a gourmet experience. However, what sets this destination apart is it also serves an equal portion of Aloha. It is a...More

Yes but agree the top level is more fine dining and the children would be better suited to the lower levels. This was a lovely restaurant.
