The location of the restaurant was by far the best location at the resort. We had lunch here and watched the whales jump in the distance. I found the food acceptable but it was not amazing. I found it quite funny that there is a sign as you enter which indicates that you need shirts and shoes to enter the... More

We had some great bites and drinks here! Definitely worth it when you're relaxing at the beach at Turtle Bay!

We devoured our lunch here, kids included. It was great; salads were so fresh and yummy, and the fish tacos were plentiful

Sitting on the beach is worth the little extra that you pay, as is the service and people watching as it seems some of the rich and famous parade up and down demanding we admire their new faces and sculpted tanned bodies. Service is jovial and very good. Fish taco was a little dry or I would go for 4.5... More

The nachos pupu is to die for! It is an expensive place but you can sit right on the beach and everything we at was delicious! Definitely worth it!

we ate here twice and enjoyed the experience both times. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could but its not quite worthy of 5 stars. the kulua pork nachos were wonderful, as was the red quinoa and seafood dishes. the braised short ribs were cooked perfectly, although the sauce was not my favorite. the sweet potato gnocchi were terrific.

But something you should know while driving around, there are not too many places to eat..you need to pack something. get a cheap cooler and... More

Right on the beach and yet serving great food. We went three times on one week. At lunch, the island pork sandwich was amazing. Our dinner choices of salmon and short ribs were both lovely. The service was attentive, but not too serious. This is the best place at Turtle Bay resort.

Ola is one of the restaurants belonging to Turtle Bay Resort. It is located directly on the Turtle Bay beach and has a good view to the ocean over the sandy beach. The description of the food on the menu is quite cryptic. Almost I would have preferred the chinease style pictures instead of fish names. I had a huge... More

After driving an hour from Honolulu airport to the Turtle Bay Resort, my family and I were starving. Ola is one of the resorts closeby, offering a nice view right off the beach and live music on Sundays (probably all weekend, but I can't attest to that). The restaurant itself has a nice, warm feeling with a lot of wooden... More
