Good drinks, good food for poolside bar, and friendly service. Visited all week along and service was consistently good.

We were staying nearby and ate at this restaurant twice during our stay. The lunch menu was a mix of fish sandwiches, salads, burgers, etc. and is very convenient considering it is right on the beach. A good lunch during a nice beach day. Dinner...More

We didn't get there for the sunset, which must be spectacular. Food was hit or miss. The ribs were outstanding, but the fish was only so so. Service was warm and quick. Next time we will go there to watch the sunset.

We ate there last May with some friends. I really couldn't come up with any item on the menu that I really liked. The drinks used to be better before the new management.

Delicious food, must try ribs and calamari appetizer! You can't beat this location right next to the beach.

We stopped by Napua after snorkeling the Boat House Beach and didn't want too much...just something light. This was the perfect place and the perfect menu.

Sadly despite great reviews online we had a very average experience with the cuisine. I had catch of the day - Mahi Mahi. My husband had duck confit. Fish was over cooked and tasteless as was duck. Should be $10 pp!! Not $40!!!

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
