My dear friend's daughter got married last week at Turtle Bay, the 15 party reception was at Ola's. Everything was excellent!! The hostess went out of her way to help me get plumerias to decorate the cake, she helped decorate it even. The waiter was very busy, but was pleasant & patient with us; and the food was superb, everyone... More

By the food and the service...but the view was the best part. Considering this is a well known and pricey resort, I expected more from the rest. We only ordered a few appetizers and beers, and weren't sure that they were ever going to arrive at the table. We had to ask for things several times before they would arrive.... More

As stated in other reviews the setting for this restaurant is perfect - right on the beach with the sound of the waves to listen to as you dine; myself and 7 friends were looking forward to the experience. We didn't book a table but were offered one as soon as we turned up (the restaurant did not look busy).... More

Hard to ignore the beautiful beach setting. Service was slow but steady and friendly. The garlic shrimps were properly cooked; the fish tacos a little tough. Nothing special, but there are not many choices in the area, so this works well.

On Mother's day we were looking for a reservation last minute. We decided on Ola's at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu. All we had were burgers and desert, but they were great. The covered outdoor atmosphere on the beach was great. A musician played in a tent near by to add to the experience. This... More

The setting of this restaurant is great - right on the beach with the waves and moon as a backdrop, but unfortunately this is where the positive experience ended for us. We had made a booking but on arrival were advised that our table wasn't ready so we headed to the bar only to be shown later to a table... More

Having visited one of the best rated restaurants in Oahu and having been disappointed, we didn't think we'd find anywhere good to eat on the island, but oh yes we did.. Driving to the North shore to escape the concrete jungle of Waikiki and Honolulu, be just by chance found this resort, just in time for lunch. Great staff, good... More

The food was very good, I had the red quinoa dish with scallops, hebi and prawns. The seafood was cooked to perfection and the quinoa was cooked with toasted macadamia nuts and coconut. The pork nachos were also very tasty as well as the Poke with shrimp chips. The food was very well plated and my Blue Hawaiian drink was... More

The first day we got to Turtle Bay we sat at Ola's had drinks. They were amazing. We had reservations there for dinner that night at 730. As we walked across the beach from our room we noticed there were no lights on. That would be because they were closed. Strange becasue we never got a call or email that... More
