We had a wonderful, romantic evening at Merriman. Their food is always top notch. We also love the Merriman's in Maui, which we always visit when we're on Maui. We had a fish special for two which was delicious. However, what came up short is...More

Good staff and fresh fish in this large partially open space in a shopping center in Poipu. Fish was excellent as was our waiter, David. Meal was on the expensive side -- but so are most of the places in Kauai.

We had dinner reservations for Merriman's which were made way in advance. We got dressed, drove to the restaurant and were told there was a 45 minute wait. They had our cell phone number and e-mail address, but no communications to let us know.

We regularly eat at the bar downstairs, and this has great food and drinks. The lilikoi foam Mai Tai is fantastic, and I keep eating the BKE burger every time. Very friendly service, nice outside terrace ideal for people watching, and pretty good prices, especially for happy hour....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.
