There are many kind of filling in its Malasada. They are long line of customers every day. I had plaine and Custard cream one. It melted in my mouth. Malasada size is perfect size.

I loved the polenta fries here! Pasta's were good too and I liked the salads. View of the ocean, pool and sunset were a plus. Wait staff very friendly and presentation of the food beautiful.

This restaurant has had a very checkered past. It was conceived as The Palm Terrace (do not recall the name, prior to that, but it was never memorable). As The Palm Terrace, it had a split personality - it was one of the breakfast venues, then converted to a lunch spot. In the evening, it really split apart with both... More

Totally addictive malasadas. Went here multiple times on our trip. Find the food truck in Haleiwa. The original was my favorite.

We reserved our family’s Christmas buffet hoping for a special dining experience. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the quality of the food served. The prime rib roast was overcooked and tough. The other main buffet courses were very ordinary in presentation and taste. The desserts were bland and stale tasting. The crème brule tasted like packaged pudding and did not... More

Stayed for a 9 night stay at Turtle Bay and tried all the restaurants at least once. While many others have given poor reviews of this restaurant, we had our most enjoyable resort dinner at Leonardos. Leonardos was open the first few nights during our stay, but then closed as renovations were started. It was too bad as were were... More

Food was decent, nothing too special. Service was good and accommodating, wasnt a highlight of the trip but was fine when too tired to leave the resort.

We enjoyed the Christmas buffet. All of our family members found what they wanted for dinner. It's a great backup restaurant for the resort. It's not fast food, so we needed to be patient (which didn't trouble us). You don't need a reservation which helps during a busy season. Service was good enough & friendly. Aloha & mahalo :)

The resort is far from other towns so the restaurants there are the only option for decent food. They know this and offer a limited variety, and the service is poor. Make the trip to other places including Waikiki.

Ate Dinner here for 2 meals during a stay at the resort (I do NOT recommend staying here – see my other review of the hotel). 1st meal was the New Year’s Day buffet they had on 1/1/2013 – this was a VERY good meal at a very good price ($32 pp). Service by a nice French women was exceptional.... More
