Don't Miss Michael Ruff

Call ahead and find out what night Michael Ruff is playing the keyboard and singing. Then get a seat outside where you can hear him and the sounds of the nearby waterfall. It's peaceful, relaxing and, as an added bonus, the food and service are excellent.

Went there twice on our stay in Princeville, food was excellent both times. We got the fantastic Hawaiian deal $40 for 3 course and a cocktail such good value for great food. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Would recommend it if staying in the area. Even some live music great atmosphere in the place.

By far the best meal I have had on the North Shore! We had a tasting menu and were sat at a wonderful outdoor seat near the Waterfall and Koi pond. The meal was perfectly paired with fabulous wine! The hostess, chef and managers came out to greet us. Such a memorable evening!

We had a wonderful dinner for 11 at the Nanea. The food was great and so was the service. Half of us had the price fix special Monday night dinner that included cocktail, appetizer, entree and desert.

OK, I know this place is at a resort. The advantage of this restaurant is that the resort is a little bit removed from the rest of the area, so if you at all feel any inertia against driving, you're likely to wind up here -- once. Service was great. Food, not so. Think moderate-level country club. It is decent,... More

It was our 60th anniversary and we were 11 people. It was also a Hula/music night so they had a special menu which was terrific. They were very accommodating and made the proper fuss over us! All of our dishes were delicious and our waitress was outsyanding.

If you are on the property and don't feel like driving, it's a convenient, yet expensive option for uninspired, boring food. Standard meat and potatoes, seafood meals. Vegetarian options were not interesting and the vegan vegetable stack is bland. I would recommend driving to a better option if you have the time and don't mind driving at night.

We dined here during our vacation on a Friday night. The restaurant had a Friday night special featuring the catch of the day, which was Ono. The fish was delicious, as were the salad and vegetables. The pineapple upside down cake was very tasty, too! The service was great....always had cold water, plates cleared quickly, people making sure we were... More
