Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I dined at a nice outside table. The food was of good quality and very well prepared but not at all seasoned. The chef needs to work on his sauces. The servers were great and responded immediately to special requests. I ordered the wine pairing with my fettucine dish. It was over priced and not exceptional."

  • "The food was amazing, and the service was great too! They found out on the spot that it was a special occasion dinner for us, and prepared a special, private table for our party. Great experience, and I hope to go back."

  • "Overlooks pool with ocean view. Casual resort dining atmosphere with one of several pools within 100 feet. Very nice menu with several varieties of local fish as well as salmon. Monday appears to be "prime rib night" and it was an excellent choice after several days of outstanding local fish. The salad was very fresh and the creme brûlée excellent. The service was personable but not intrusive."

  • "We made reservations, asked if we wanted indoors or out. We chose in and were escorted to at able tucked into an interior wall corner. Service was fleetinig, no chance for repore in the production line method of service. Food was delicious. They have gluten free choices on their menu which is why I chose Nanea. Would we go again? Maybe, just to see if we had hit an off night. We like interactive service as well as good food. "

  • "If our server spent a total of 2 minutes at our table, I would be surprised. After waiting 30 minutes to order,an expediter served the apps and entrees. When we were done, the server asked how was everything. That's not how fine dining should be. He was never there when we needed him. He always rushed. Food was also poor. We both had the tomato basil bisque. I love all types of tomato soups. This was the worst tomato soup I have had. It tasted like a bowl of chopped tomatoes heated up. No sense of any bisque, no basil and no taste. Just heated up chopped tomatoes. We both tad fresh fish--one ono and one ahi. Both were just very average. Excessive food pricing at resorts is expected; if they deliver, that's OK. Here they don't"

  • "We found Nanea on line our first day of arrival and made an early reservation...so easy!! We were able to sit outside on the patio right next to the water feature...lovely. Our waiter, Bryan was attentive and helpful without being too invasive ....perfect service! The food was amazingly delicious. We all had starters for our main course and salads, a wonderful bottle of red wine and incredible desserts! This could not have been better!! Highly recommend! We may even go back on our last night to heopefully have an equally enjoyable dinner."

  • "We've dined at Nanea three times and each visit exceeded expectations. The food is delicious and I recommend the five course pairing with selected wines. We recently celebrated our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make the night special even presenting us with a card signed by all server, the manager and bartender. What a personal touch!"

  • "We made a reservation for Nanea following our marriage on Tunnel's beach. The service and food quality were good. Nothing spectacular. Certainly not poor. Just okay. Not sure that we would return here, unless we were staying in the area. "
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Had dinner on the terrace overlooking the pool with a pleasant view beyond. Our reservation was honored on time. Service was polite and professional. Both of us had local fish with different preparations. Fish was fresh and prepared as expected-no surprises. We didn't find anything exceptional about the restaurant, but nothing was that lacking either. Overall, about what one expects in a hotel restaurant."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Our server made our meal for us; otherwise we were unimpressed. Food was ok but nothing special. Wine pairings were cheap but I guess "you get what you pay for" applied here. I would have been very disappointed with out evening as a whole but the excellent service we received made up for what was lacking in terms of management and the chef's ability to excel in the kitchen."

  • "We chose the prix fix menu and the portion of the fish entrees was less than 3 ounces. Won't be back. Spend $20 more and have a fabulous meal at the St. Regis"

  • "Nanea is a gem on Kauai's north shore. True aloha in the ambiance and the very welcoming staff. Lovely menu selections drawing from local resources of sea and land, prepared wonderfully. Perfect for a special occasion or just neighborhood night out. Casual elegance. Excellent."

  • "We had early reservations which turned out to be good fortune. There was a long line at 8pm when we left. 4 course pre-fix meal with 3 choices at each course. Wine pairing to match each choice for only$20 more - so $85pp was a deal here on Kauai's north shore. Service was very good as well."

  • "We enjoyed a Sunday Champagne Brunch at The Nanea Restaurant. It is the best option for Sunday brunch in the Princeville area. The food is about average, with a good selection of items for most palettes. Carved meats, an omelets station and several breakfast and lunch items are available. Seating is available both inside and on the patio. The patio is covered for times of uncertain weather. Service ws good and not at all rushed. Two of us enjoyed the brunch, with a couple of glasses of champagne for just $70.00, including tax. Outside seating seemed to be best as the noise level inside was a bit high. The outside seating has the sounds of the nearby waterfall."

  • "We had a great evening here - we all shared a whole fish, which was beautifully cooked and the chef came out and explained his work - made it really special. This is the best place to have a quality meal on the North Shore of Kauai."

  • "Located in the Westin. We sat outside which looks out over the pool. Love the gas tiki torches that light the way. Service was very nice and prompt. Food was okay. The price similar to the other restaurants in the the area."

  • "There are not too many choices of good restaurants on North Shore Kauai and Nanea is great find for those who love good food. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, quality of the food was excellent. We will return to Nanea for sure and will spread the word around."

  • "Our service was very good and the food well prepared and tasty. Indoor and outdoor seating in a lovely Westin courtyard."

  • "food is mediocre and did not meet my expectations for a resort like Westin. Food presentation was fusion Japanese/Hawaiian but taste was bland and not refined. The ahi poke with the wasabi shoyu sauce was satifactory. For those of you who can appreciate japanese flavors and subtleties, this was not even close with the breaded (katsu) mahi mahi overly breaded.Had to pick off the bread to get any taste of the fish. Overly sweet. Pass on the Westin hotel food and go into neighboring Hanalei and eat local fresh organic dishes"

  • "For the second time in a week we returned to Nanea - food and servers are excellent. Short ribs (huge for a short rib, but falls apart in your mouth) and mahi w/grilled prawns and a fruit salsa that disappeared from my partner's plate with lots of smiles. Presentation is half the battle - Nanea does it well."

  • "Not only are the tropical drinks excellent, but the fish was great - mahi-mani and ahi both served in creative tropical sauces and appealingly arranged with greens and rice. Inside or outside, the food is the same. Service was attentive and friendly - made a good evening. We continue to visit this place - year after year."

  • "I made reservations in advance and inquired about live music. I was told there would be live music beginning at 6:30pm. We had reservations at 6:00pm. Once we arrived, I asked again about the live music and was told it would start at 6:30pm as promised. The band was to play on a grassy area near the outdoor seating area. I asked again at 7:00pm and was told that the music was running late. You know it is Hawaii. At 8:00pm, the sole musician showed and started setting up in the actually outdoor seating area. This concerned folks sitting at the tables on either side of him. We finally left at 8:15 with never hearing any music. I had hoped to dance a little near the pool, but this was not to happen on this night. Not happy."

  • "Booked this restaurant months ago for Christmas night thru Open Table. They had a set menu of four courses that was $65.00 per person. Never received any notice that there would be a set menu that had NONE of the items that were on the regular menu. Additionally, the main choice of entrees was limited to two types of fish or one of lamb. We inquired if their were additional choices such as a chicken or beef entree, we were told only a vegetarian entree of stuffed tofu. We asked if their was any bread with our meal and were told no. All portions except dessert were small. Food was not good! Not the kind of dining experience that we had in mind for Christmas dinner away with family or any night for that matter even if it was half the price!"

  • "We visited Nanea for a special Christmas Day dinner. The staff were great and in good spirits in spite of having to work on a Holiday. The menu consisted of 5 courses including a sorbet before the main dinner course. We had a choice which was great and also chose the wine pairings which was a good value extra. The only let down was that we sat outside and could hear the Christmas music being played from the restaurant and musak coming from other hotel areas. This spoiled the ambience for us otherwise this would have been 5 stars all the way."

  • "We stayed at the Westin Princeville Ocean Villas Resort where this restaurant is located. There are only a few really good fine dining spots on the North Shore and this is one of them. Anyone looking for a new and different place to dine and enjoy delicious food and a relaxing atmosphere should make a reservation here for any meal of the day."
