the food and service at Napua was excellent lunch or dinner treat yourself and eat there. Right on the beach close to Mauna lani point if you are going for dinner make a reservation its popular.

Dinner last night was superbly prepared, fresh Ono and another variety that was the special and name I cannot pronounce much less write. Wine list is surprisingly complete with several unusual gems. Classic guitar player made the evening surreal under the palm trees. Anyone who rips this place has issues.

We had lunch there after playing golf at Mauna Lani. The restaurant is in a great location with a nice beach in front of it. The food was nothing special, but good for a quick lunch. Nice walking path nearby along the ocean towards the golf course. Probably not worth the walk from the public parking lot 15 minutes away... More

This place isn't on top of the concierges list and not one of the popular dining locations in the area but it should be. My husband and I dined here twice while staying at the Mauna Lani as the food is fresh and interesting and the service couldn't have been friendlier. The restaurant sits on a quite little beach so...

The shaved ice martinis were great to have on the beach and we appreciated the close proximity of this restaurant while spending all day by the water. However, going into lunch for a couple of salads was rather treacherous. While we were frantically swatting flies off our food, my newly coral-lacerated foot was attacked by a stealthy feral cat under... More

We managed to go to dinner there once as it was fully booked the second time we tried. It was a Friday night and a band was playing. We had a table outside and got to enjoy the beautiful evening and food. They are very kid friendly as well. We did go to lunch as well and it was equally... More

We had lunch and dinner here. They serve very nice food at reasonable price. At dinner time we could listen to Hawaiian music live. The singer was very good. The ladies who served us were very nice and capable, too. I think this restaurant is the best in this area. Instead of having dinners at expensive restaurants at the hotels,... More

We went for lunch so the prices were more reasonable and the service was super friendly and delightful. The food was fresh, portion sizes were good, and the atmosphere is lovely, informal, and breezy. Tough to get a dinner reservation, but lunch is worth it too.

Great location and service. It was very nice eating dinner while admiring the sunset. The lady who served us was very pleasant. It is of course on the pricy side but that is very understandable.
