Merriman's Mediterranean Cafe Restaurant Review

: Smack in the middle of the Kings’ Shops at Waikoloa Beach Resort sits an indoor-outdoor trattoria, a venture of Peter Merriman, one of the chefs who placed Hawaii Regional cuisine on the culinary map. When you visit, do not make comparisons to his eponymous establishment in upcountry Waimea. The café is casual, and the service on the popular dining deck can at times feel rushed. Still, we love this place where local, fresh ingredients are emphasized through a creative interpretation of Italian food. Start with some homemade hummus and a roasted beet salad. Heartier offerings include pastas, catch of the day, sandwiches and pizzas topped with Waimea tomatoes and Hamakua mushrooms. The wine list features unusual wines that match the innovative fare. Happy hour is daily from 3 p.m.-5:30 p.m. with cocktail specials like $7 Market Mai Tais.
