Seafood was excellent

My husband ordered their combo plate with shrimp, scallops and catch of the day and really loved it. Their desserts are very good though. I got the creme brûlée which was very good. They're known for their goat cheese nachos which we did not try since neither my husband nor I like goat cheese.

Between the hotel and the Villas Ola's has a fine location. We ate here several times. Had great service and delicious food, in particular seafood.

My wife and I recently visited Turtle Bay and decided to try Ola one night for dinner. We had the pleasure of being served by Kalei. Although the whole staff at Ola was great, Kalei did a tremendous job and was everything you'd want in a server; he was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and happy to give recommendations. The food was... More

We were thinking of going to one of the many shrimp shacks in the area, but were not hungry so we made a reservation at ola. this is a nice place, much more crowded than either kula grille or pa'akai. The wife had poke, which is chopped tuna, and a salad and orichiette with garlic shrimp. I had cream of... More

Good for appetizers or lunch or dinner. The menu is not very original but you can't beat the location.

This restaurant at Turtle Bay Resort sits along the beach/ocean. You can actually get a table that sits on the beach. There is soft candle lighting here and it is open air. It is a very unique setting. I recommend you get a reservation in advance because they book up fast. We had to wait a few nights to get... More

We stopped in here for lunch one day on our drive to the North Shore. Food was tasty, not much variety for lunch menu - which was fine, but just a regular menu. Service was a little on the slow side, the waiter was too laid back. The view from the lounge area isn't that great...all you can see are... More
