Good food, good service

Great food and drinks here. Service is always top notch, that's why we keep coming back here. We were here on the 28th, and there was a sea lion beached there. So cool to just watched it lay there, makes it more enjoyable to stay.

We love this place! Sitting right on the beach - we really wanted a table on the sand for lunch - it was overcast but they did as we requested. We were sitting and the skies opened - they immediately moved us to an inside table. So accommodating. Food is delicious and reasonably priced - cost us $60 for 2... More

Great burgers. lovely spot for lunch - just not sure about dinner. We sat next to the exhaust from the BBQ - and in the dark. But it was the last table available and we were starving! We did enjoy ourselves... Also - one of my kids ordered off the kids menu - but honestly - it should be called... More

We had the perfect meal at Ola's. Both the salmon and butterfish were prepared to perfection and the assortment of sides was tasty. Our desserts were some of the best ever - creme brûlée and espresso cheesecake. Can't wait to go back.

Great bartenders - the margaritas and pina coladas are outstanding! Good service. Didn't eat here but plates that were coming out look darned good. The prices are comparable on this islands.

Food was surprisingly good for a place where you can sit right on the beach. Service was excellent. I would eat there again, as choices on the north shore are limited and this was a solid choice.

Great spot for lunch when staying at resort. Would recommend booking in advance however. Reasonable menu and price. Turnover of tables however left something to be desired. Maybe ask patrons table preference rather than making them wait when tables available but at back of restaurant.

This is next door to the condo we rented so we ate there several times. A lunch with the family (4-72 years) was very successful. (the surfing dog at the adjacent beach provided entertainment.) Another evening several members of the group had drinks at the beach bar and enjoyed the view and beverages. My two dinner experiences were poor. The... More

The food isn't the best ever but it's absolutely fine. We had seafood (scallops, prawns etc) on a bed of red quinoa and it was delicious. Cocktails weren't great so stick with the beer - that can't go wrong! The best part about this place is the setting. There's nothing quite like having dinner when your feet are resting on... More
