There's a reason Napua always gets excellent reviews; the food and service are great. For lunch, try their burger. It's the best you'll find on the island. The servers are always very friendly and welcoming.

This is a 5-star restaurant that is a notch above anything else. Great for both lunch and dinner...and also lovely, romantic, and very special in every way.

We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at the beach here and dining/drinking at Napau. The octopus appetizer and calamari were amazing!! Excellent rose wine as well.

We stopped in after a morning on the private Mauna Lani beach. The restaurant is just behind the beach with a nice beach view and open air seating. The cocktails were pretty but weak and the food presentation was very good but didn’t deliver on...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
