The reason we came to Turtle Bay for a week was a visit to Ola's for lunch a couple of years ago while on a day drive from Honolulu. We were so impressed by the setting and the food that we decided some day we needed to come back to this resort. Well, Everything turned out to be wonderful--except Ola's.... More

There were a lot of employees, but not many were doing much of anything. When we finally asked someone to find our server, they said "he's busy." Ok, can you help us...food order had been in for 45 minutes (lunch) nor had we seen the server in that long. Then the table next to us started complaining and left without... More

So glad we extended our stay at Turtle Bay. The resort is so much more relaxing than being in Waikiki. Ola is small and has a great vibe, more laid back than Pa'akai, due to the fact it's ON the beach. Our food was excellent, as was the service.

Winds are mild this time of year and the surf is 6-10'. Perfect view. Take your family or your friends for a pork sandwich or seafood.

This was the best meal we had on O'ahu. Our table was right on the beach at the Turtle Bay Resort. Our entrees were some perfectly cooked local fish. The best was the appetizer platter though, some really interesting twists on local seafood dishes. Our waiter was a bit quirky, but in an interesting, relaxed / hippy hawaiian kind of... More

This restaurant was great because it was right on the resort property and we could just walk down to the beach and enjoy a fabulous evening oceanside. The food was good and so was the service. The location was perfect, right on the beach. My favorite part was actually the "beach cats" that showed up looking for some food droppings.... More

We ate here twice over a week--once lunch, once dinner. Both times we had grilled fish with fresh veggies. It was very good. The service was good and the drinks well mixed. This will not knock your socks off, but the good, fresh food and ocean view gave us two great meals and wonderful times while on the North Shore.... More

This was our (me and my guy's) third dining experience at a Turtle Bay restaurant....staying at the condos it is convenient to be able walk to dinner.
