Ola is right on the beach, and some tables are in the sand. The host, waitresses and staff were all very nice. Being a high-end hotel, the food was pricey but delicious. We started with the garlic edamame which was out of this world! It included a whole roasted bulb of garlic.There is a kids menu and the burgers the... More

The treat of this place is the view and ambiance and... More

The location is one of the best on the island. It is on the beach, tucked in next to the Turtle Bay Resort. We were seated right on the edge of the beach. The food was good and well presented. Our wait staff were wonderful. Small children are welcome. Both visits were great. The restaurant is open to the breezes... More

Dinner Meals are way too big although lunch meals were reasonably proportioned; seemed like they were short staffed in terms of table waiters at dinner time.

This place really has a couple of things going for it! First, its location: smack dab on the beach of a beautiful bay in northern Oahu. Second, the food is great (try the butterfish!). Last, service is impeccable (thank you Kanei!). Especially the service part we were a bit hesitant about at first, because in an influential guidebook (Oahu revealed... More

We ate at Ola every day of our trip. The food was wonderful! The food is farm to table fresh! You can't go wrong with eating the buffet or ordering off the men.

We were so excited to dine at Ola during our stay at Turtle Bay Resort. Welcomed to a beautiful on-sand table, we thought we were in for a treat. We ordered the octopus salad, followed by the salmon main and my husband had the $66 steak with lobster tail. My salmon was tasty but over glazed in sauces much like... More

Beautiful Restaurant right on the beach with open air breezes, great service and food. We had the fresh fish and steak and both were excellent. The watermelon margarita was refreshing and tasty as well. Service was outstanding.

We visited 'Ola' at the Turtle Bay Hilton and fell in love with the Butterfish! We ordered three entrees and tried the all. One was Risotto, one was scallops, these were each very good but the Butter fish entree was the best fish dish we had ever had! If you are on Oahu, go to "Ola' and try the Butter... More
