Napua has always been one of the best restaurants on the Kohala Coast. Last night it fell short of what I know it can be like. 4 of us were seated in a poorly lit table on the way to the restrooms. There was overhead...More

Had a reservation for 7:15. Arrived a little early and was told would be seated soon but still had to wait. Service was good but a little slow even though we were second seating and it wasn’t overly busy. Drinks were great but really expensive....More

This restaurant is tucked away on a private cove overlooking the ocean. We came for dinner and had sunset cocktails--it was just breathtaking. We met the owner/manager Brandon and he is just the most delightful host--so warm and welcoming...and hilarious. The staff was so friendly...More

I walked in and was immediately charmed by my table and the few. Unfortunately, the service, while competent, was nothing special, and the food was disappointing. We only got served bread because the busboy noticed, and that didn't come out until the check did! I...More

This is a beautiful little house on the water, I assume (was too dark to see the water). Kind of hard to find in the dark. We started with cocktails and carbonara that came with a pesto sauce. Delicious! I had the lamb, husband had...More

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

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
