    The Filet is outstanding. It's served with whipped potatoes, savoy cabbage and this amazing mustard brown butter emulsion. Amazingly delicious entree.

    Kampachi (fish) is amazing. Na ko oi (cocktail) heavenly. But you can't beat the setting!!

    This is a true gem on a beautiful peninsula. Love the atmosphere and the food. Monchung, ribeye, lobster salad are excellent. Mai Tai wins every award. Only the beer sucks.

    Ridiculously expensive! Small small plates! Go away!! There are much better options all over the island!

    The best fining we have found so far. Excellent meat and seafood and a great view of the surf.

    This is definitely a place to eat your vegetables: spinach from Honopua Farm, stunning, deeply red Lokelani tomatoes, and corn, simply grilled, from Nakano Farms. Read more

    Spectacular views. Sits high on a point between Napili and Kapalua bays. Perfect spot for a sunset dinner. Great food and happy hour. Really nice outdoor seating area. Read more

    Marisa may trick you into ordering non Happy Hour drinks. I was eyeing the $5 well drinks & asked for something bourbon based. She suggested the Molokai Mule, which ended up being 3x as much.

    Don't worry if the restaurant is booked. There is an incredible, informal deck area at the back for drinks and a limited but awesome menu. Incredible ocean views.

    Duncan Jennings · August 22, 2014

    Reserve a table before the sunset!!

    Bre Tempesta · August 8, 2014

    The mahi mahi is excellent- but get it prepared the way the mongchong is on the menu! Poke salad is amazing, as is the pork quesadilla!

    Make sure you drop in for happy hour, 3:00pm - 4:49pm daily. Mai Tai's are $6 and may be the best Mai Tai you'll ever have. Bring a camera; the patio has one of the greatest ocean views in the world.

    Growing up on Hawaii Island, I always enjoyed going to Merriman's. Always a fantastic meal. But at this location, the views alone from the restaurant are worthy of a visit!

    Request JJ. He's the most knowledgable, considerate & awesome server I've ever encountered. Follow his recommendations! - Taylor Stoffers

    I will return to Hawaii just to get the chocolate purse. A must for anyone who loves (or likes) chocolate.

    I scoured Maui for the best rum selection, expert mixology—& found bar mgr. Jeff Groh's macadamia nut orgeat Mai Tais, hand shaken Mojitos, classic El Presidentes & the greatest rum list in all of HI.

    Over priced and over rated! Wait staff is LESS than stellar. Skip it and go to mamas fish house

    Christine Comulada · May 25, 2013
  • Adam B.

    Come for the food and sunset, stay for the amazing fire pit. Enjoy some drinks on the patio while relaxing with friends.

    $6 HH Mai Tai's and they are strong! Do it! Great ocean views!

    They open at 3 pm for happy hour. If you want a front row seat for the sunset, best arrive by 4 pm or earlier.

    Food was a little overpriced, but good. We ordered a filet mignon. It wasn't a center-cut and was priced at $34. Everything else was good though. Great service and great view.

    Ate here for a wedding - had the asparagus soup, the beet salad, and an amazing ribeye steak. The whole meal was fantastic, and so was the service and live music!

    To all Parrotheads, this is Louie's Backyard of the Pacific. To the rest of you, this is a great place to hang, have a drink and watch the sunset.

    Run by Peter Merriman, one of the leaders of Hawaii regional cuisine, a culinary movement that blends international flavors with local ingredients. * Expensive!

    Malasadas for dessert are a must! Divine!!!!

    The tomato/beet salad is delicious

    The ginger press is a great way to start the evening!

    Get there at 5pm to be able to experience the sunset. Ask for a table either outside or by the windows.

    Jennie Hornbaker · February 21, 2012

    Head to the outdoor wine bar for a beautiful sunset happy hour. The Pupu taster and their Original Mai Tai's are the perfect combination.

    If the restaurant is is full you can a spot at the bar.

    Kate Healy · December 16, 2011

    Lobster, Avacado, Tomato Salad is amazing!

  • Meredyth M.

    Ask for a quiet table when you make your reservation, or you may get stuck in front of the band unable to hear your waiter and friends.

    Meredyth Masterson · November 22, 2011
  • Ross D.

    You MUST try the lamb. There's nothing like it and it was by far the best dish I've ever eaten.

    Ross Duran · October 26, 2011

    They are supper cool with making things right. Honest about the food and the wine.

    Sit away from the bar and avoid the scallop. Place is great otherwise.
