I love that Napua always changes their Menu ... from appetizers, to desserts !! What really caught my taste was the Octopus w/Luau, Chef Keoni's take on a Hawaiian Dish called Squid Luau! Sooo Delish, coconut milk, deep-fried Pai'ai (Poi)...I could've licked the plate !! Duck Confit w/Polenta, Tinono ... another take on a Popular Filipino Dish, Rib-eye! For Dessert... More

Great spot for poke, you can order at a table or get it to take out and bring to the beach. Super friendly bartenders. We also enjoyed the Ahupua'a salad -- consistently good food. Super spot to enjoy the beach! Wish we had time to try dinner here.

Great spot if you can find it before dinner hours! We parked up the road about a 10-15 minute walk in historic parking across from their fitness center. They open parking in front of restaurant for dinner. It was a beautiful walk but we ended up turning at golf course instead of following the fish pond. Pretty walk and once... More

Whole restaurant is like a patio setting with a great beach view. We were 7 people with an earlier reservation (5 pm), so got the best table. Service was great, food was good (portions so you're not stuffed, but not puny either, so no unnecessary frou-frou decorations taking up 75% of plate space). Talented singer for background mood. As indicated:... More

We ate one lunch and one dinner here while staying at the nearby Fairmont Orchid. The food was excellent and well priced with generous portions. Service was wonderful. The semi-outdoor location looks over a lovely beach.

We ate lunch at Napua and from beginning to end, it was an enjoyable and memorable experience. We weren't certain where the restaurant was so we parked in front of the Mauna Lani Resort and asked. We were told we needed to take the shuttle. Our driver Joe was personable and friendly and he regaled us with stories and even... More

This was located in the owners beach private area of Mauna Lani resort, but it is open to the public. The food was excellent and the fish was beautifully prepared. We had excellent service. It is expensive but so is everything at Mauna Lani. This was actually the best value of all the restaurants we tried. Excellent wine selection. Would... More

This was our first visit to Napua, and certainly will not be our last. I am surprised it has taken so long for us to find it. The service is outstanding, the atmosphere is casual yet refined, and the food has a nice touch of creativity that certainly did not feel as if it were mass produced. Try the calamari... More

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.
