We ate here 3 times last week for lunch. Great view, great food and service! Leilani was a great server who gave us a hotel tip--going to Volcano House for a night. We are so glad we listened to her. Nachos and fish tacos were top notch.

We went to Napua for dinner with a 5:30 reservation. Although there was not much of a sunset view, we were able to arrive at 5 and stroll over to the very lovely and interesting ancient Hawaiian fish ponds next door. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated promptly at a pretty, ocean-view table. Our server, Angela, did... More

This is a great place for lunch. We ate here every day after diving with Mauna Lani Sea adventures..

My family and I recently had a fantastic lunch at Napua after having gone on a morning snorkel and whale-watching trip with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures next door. We enjoyed our fish tacos, and had great service. But I want to tell you about the service that went above and beyond what one could expect. It turns out that when... More

A group of us went here (25,50,16,70,71) and it was great. Was something for everyone. They have an awesome wine list and we ensured we tried it with four bottles. The service was great and everyone's meals were awesome. The burger and nachos are to die for.

This restaurant is on the Mauna Lani property but you need a code to get in. You can take a free shuttle or get the code from the valet and ride a bike there. I had the pulled pork and coleslaw. My husband had the Rueben sandwich and we were both very pleased. Excellent service and very friendly servers.

Not sure where the negative reviews come from: everything was perfect. The setting, not too casual, not too formal. The service. And especially the food. The only negative I can think of was the shave ice martini, which was a bit gimmicky and not that good. Certainly not cheap, but this is Hawaii after all.

Napua is located adjacent to the beach at the Mauna Lani Beach Club; It is a very popular restaurant and it is difficult to get reservations anytime around sunset. Instead I had lunch there. The swordfish sandwich was excellent. Even under normal circumstances the view of the beach and bay is excellent. However we were fortunate to see a whale... More

We had one of our best meals at the Napua. The service was outstanding; however we found it odd that people from the "beach" were walking past our table most of the evening to get to their cars. The food was good, and the dessert was fantastic.

Thank Tony D
