Love this place-when we are at Mauna Lani we eat there as often as possible for lunch. Gorgeous view, great food, kind staff. Nice varied menu-always fresh catch in various recipes. Miss it already!

Napua has become our favorite restaurant on the Big Island. It has everything we love: excellent, local-ingredient food; terrific service from friendly staff; beach-front location; and some of the best music around. We ate 4 times during our 3 weeks and regret not making time...More

This was the first place we stopped for dinner on our Hawaiian trip. We stayed at the Mauna Lani and walked over with sandals- not entirely recommended due to little stones getting in our sandals. At night it would be worse, so we took the...More

The Napua at Mauna Lani Beach Club is GREAT! We visit Mauna Lani every year and we come here almost every day. The workers are so awesome, the food is wonderful, and the view is just perfect.

On basically no notice on a sold out night, Brendan graciously slid us into a table for an early dinner. This restaurant sits on the beach in a place of exceptional beauty and you feel like you are truly having a Big Island special dining...More

There were 12 of us (8 adults / 4 kids) and we had reservations. Staff was professional and polite, maybe a tad slow. However, you’re in Hawaii spending $700 on dinner, so what’s the hurry. Enjoy it. The place was cool, neat location, interesting limited...More

and that was just the appetizer! Fresh fish was amazing. Good wine list with some reasonably priced choices (for good wine). Service was impeccable. We had a reservation (advisable) but a thunder and lightening storm interrupted our dinner. Staff didn’t miss a beat. Moved tables...More

First time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed it! The service was very good, and the oceanfront setting is wonderful. Note that you cannot see the sunset from this location. They were very honest about this when I booked for dinner. We enjoyed the...More

Our last dinner was here but sadly for us it was the one night with rain in the area. No matter----the staff did a nice job accommodating us inside. Service was prompt and friendly and the ahi tuna delish. We hope to return to enjoy...More

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
