My wife & I were glad we reserved a table for our first visit to Nanea's at the Westin in Princeville, because all the tables were spoken for by 7pm! We sat outside and were rewarded with a wonderful view. The food was outstanding as was our service. We highly recommend a visit, you'll not be disappointed!!!

This was a beautiful venue. Staff were excellent. My food was great & everyone else but one liked what they had. Dessert was very good. My brother in law said it was the worst prime rib he ever had.

The prices were extremely high and the food was hit and miss. I ordered some roasted potatoes for brunch and they weren't cooked thoroughly. But, the onion rings were tasty.

This was our last meal before heading home after 11 weeks in Kauai. We chose this restaurant because it has become our favorite. We have stayed at the Westin and gotten to know the staff in Nanea. The service has always been top flight and the food excellent. We were lucky enough to have Chefs Eric and Cody prepare the... More

I actually didn't like the outdoor part of the restaurant covered with an awning...it seemed like we were eating in a tin shed. On the other hand the 55 dollar set tasting menu with 20 dollar wine pairings was FABULOUS!!! This restaurant is a good option if you don't want to drive anywhere and you are sating at the Westin...

Definitely worth the drive from Poipu. Just had the prime dip with sautéed mushrooms and onions , plus cheese. I practically swooned when I took the first bite. My mom had the Cubano sandwich - also delicious. The salad was super fresh.

Nanea has a lovely ambiance and offers a creative menus, but I never considered it a "destination" restaurant until recently. Nanea has always featured local fresh fish, but it could be overcooked at times. The new chef has changed all that. He does amazing things with fish. For example, Shutomi (swordfish) can be meaty and dense, but in the hands... More

We only ate here because we got in late and it was the restaurant at our hotel. It has very nice ambiance, although we were outside and the mosquitos were attacking my husband. We weren't super hungry so we split a Caesar salad and the seafood linguine. They were both good, but not exceptional. Perhaps if we had been more... More

My wife and I were surprised by the great menu, but the Specials were even more interesting. I asked for the fish special as we had heard the fresh fish dishes were their best. They did not disappoint. The Machon(sp?) was outstanding. The only thing that did not work for me was the wine pairing. Way too sweet! My suggestions... More

After a long day traveling it was nice to go to a hotel restaurant that was good and not overly expensive (but it is Hawaii-everything is expensive). One real bargain was the mushroom risotto - just $13 under the appetizer menu and when paired with a salad it was the perfect dinner that night.
