Valentine's Day was not a good day to visit Nanea. They had a set menu that was priced sky high. The staff was good, the outside seating was windy and cold, and the food was served luke warm and tasteless. I will probably not go back. It is too bad, since we had looked forward to this for weeks.

This restaurant is at the Westin Resort where we were staying. After a long day on the beach we decided to stay close to home a try it out. The restaurant looks out over the infinity pools towards the water. We ate dinner after dark so we missed the view. The area outside by the waterfalls was a little loud... More

My daughter and I went here for the first time, and really enjoyed it. It is located in the Westin Resort, which is just a few blocks in, on your right, after you enter Princeville. As a rule, resort restaurants are overpriced and mediocre quality, but this is an exception. We sat outside, next to the pool area, which was... More

Four of us dined at Nanea this week during an extended stay in Princeville, Kauai. We couldn't have enjoyed our lunch more. On a restrictive diet due to health, I am limited to a variety of meats, cheese and non-starchy vegetables. The chef had no trouble accommodating my requirements especially when there were already a few appropriate items on the... More

Ate at the Nanea twice and enjoyed our food both times. Our favorite meal was the five course tasting dinner. Every course was perfectly prepared and delicious. The wine pairing were mostly California Wines that were also very good. The menu was $50 plus $20 for the wine. A resonable price for such great food. Excellent service with short waits... More

This was our fourth experience at Nanea (over the years) and it truly continues to improve. They offer a wide variety of entrees featuring classic regional specialties. We selected the five course tasting menu accompanied by the wine flight. The Caesar salad was light, fresh, and excellent. The mushroom risotto was flavorful, creamy and also excellent. The mahi mahi was... More

Had both brunch in dinner at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We were seated in near the small falls and koi pond which made for a romantic setting.

Great food and great service. We are here three times while in Princeville. Hubby even enjoyed it which is rare. Kids liked it as well.

The Christmas dinner was not as extravagant as expected. The risotto was undercooked but the lobster was excellent. The lamb was cooked very well. The wine pairings did go well. The serving size was good. For the value it did not meet our expectations. The hors d'oeuvres at the owners meeting were superb. That is why we were not as... More
