We were fortunate to get a last minute reservation here on a Saturday night. The location feels like a small area of civilization in a remote beautiful setting, by a beach, with outdoor tables under leafy trees. The service was very attentive but unobtrusive. The...More

Definitely had better dinners at Canoe House and Brown's Beach House. Service was friendly but very slow. Setting was a bit back compared to the two others mentioned. Food also took a back seat. Definitely recommend the other two mentioned before going to Napua.

Really nice spot on the beach, with good food, and great live music. The only issue was that while we were waiting at the host stand, a super loud guy and his family (without reservations) barged by to ask for a table, and the host...More

We enjoyed our dinner at Napua. This is a fine dining restaurant overlooking the ocean. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. I really enjoyed the ribs and my husband loved his Ahi. It is a long dinner, but the waitstaff was attentive and...More

An $18 mediocre hamburger and two fish tacos.. The view was great and so close to the beach we left our beach stuff out at the beach while we ate. The flies.. Yeah, plenty of flies. It feels like a Country Club bar that serves...More

We had lunch here several times during our stay at Mauna Lani. It's a great beachside location, lovely setting and pleasant staff. All the dishes we tried were very good - they even catered for our vegetarian with a quinoa salad. The cocktails were lovely...More

My sister and her husband are coming to Waikoloa to celebrate their 55th anniversary. They're real foodies, and we see you're rated #1 on Trip Advisor. We would like to give them a gift card to your restaurant. Is there any way we can do that by email?

I don't know. Probably so, but you should just call them. They seem to be very accommodating. Napua is a low key, not fancy restaurant but it has a great view and well prepared food, and would be a great place to enjoy... More

Yes easy to get to and they have a parking lot right there with a small ramp. I'd say a few days to a week for prime dining ours to make a reservation. And equally priced to most of the other mid-high range restaurants in... More

Like a delicious little secret, tucked away in a private ocean cove along the appetizing sands of Mauna Lani Resort is a Big Island restaurant called Napua, waiting for you to discover the foods of Hawai'i Island, shared with the kind of aloha that comes from those who know.
