Fodor's Review

Among the best restaurants in upcountry Waimea, this is the signature restaurant of Peter Merriman, one of the pioneers of Hawaii Regional Cuisine. Merriman's is the home of the original wok-charred ahi: it's seared on the outside and sashimi on the inside. If you prefer meat, try the Kahua Ranch braised lamb, raised locally to the restaurant's specifications, or the prime bone-in New York steak, grilled to order. The extensive wine list is impressive and includes many

selections poured by the glass. Although lunch prices are reasonable, dinner is "resort pricey," so prepare to splurge.
