This Is a must if you are staying at the Beach Marriott Resort at Waikoloa on Hawai’i, as it is in the shopping / restaurant area across the road from the resort. We & the couple we were on holiday with, had a meal there every night of our stay & couldn’t fault the food, drink or service with an excellent price. Absolutely fabulous, thoroughly recommend it.

Located across the street from the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort, we dropped into Merriman's for dinner one evening during our recent vacation. Having walked by the restaurant a number of times and noticing that it was never fully busy, we showed up without reservations and had no problems getting seated immediately.

We had the hummus appetizer, the chicken piccata, linguine with meatballs and fish tacos for entrees and the zeppole for desert. We liked the zeppole desert the best. Everything was OK, service was good and the prices pretty fair for a full service restaurant in Waikoloa. Worth trying if you're looking for food with a mediterranean slant.

FYI - We found the menu a bit limited in selections especially if your palate leans more to the neutral side of the food spectrum. Even desert is limited with only 3 choices. A lot of the menu items are spicy or uses stronger tasting ingredients like feta or goat cheese, arugula, cilantro, anchovy, etc. They may have a separate children's menu but the main menu doesn't appear kid's friendly.

They have both indoor and outdoor sitting. We enjoyed their indoor sitting so stay out of the sun. For lunch, we had fish tacos and truffle garlic fries. The fries was so good, we went back in the evening to just have another order of Fries and their delicious spicy broccoli. Both dishes we yummy.

We actually ate at this spot twice during our July visit. The food was wonderful both times. The service was great. The music was awesome. So relaxing!

We were hesitant to make the drive to Merrimans but are so glad we did! The drive was beautiful and the food was well worth it. A bonus was the cooler, drier air up the hill!
