Ola is a beachfront restaurant at the Turtle Bay resort. It has a gourmet menu, somewhat costly, but the food and service quality are very good. The salmon entree with a sweet potato puree is possibly the most beautiful food presentation we've ever seen given the array of colors on the plate. While not a big frustration, we found that...

Located right on the beach, you really can't go wrong with the view. My husband and I stayed at Turtle Bay for our honeymoon and tried this restaurant our first night. It was so good we ended up going back another night. The food was better on a weekend night than a week day night, probably better chefs. The Misoyaki... More

We ate here to celebrate our anniversary while staying at Turtle Bay. My only complaint is that we made a reservation well in advance with a request for a table in the sand, but that was not able to be accommodated. We could have waited for one to open up, but chose not to. That said, the staff was very... More

We have been to Ola several times and have loved each time we've gone. We especially love the KALUA PORK & GOAT CHEESE NACHOS (a must for anyone going there). The food is fabulous and the service is great! But we love the fact that you are right there on the beach - can't get any better than that. Oh... More

The food at Olas was creative and delicious. The restaurant is right on the beach. Attire is very casual and while staying at Turtle Bay, it was our go to place for lunch and dinner. Also good for drinks in between. I would like to mention how accommodating they were with respect to my food allergies. It is very difficult... More

If you find yourself on North Shore out near Turtle Bay Resort, this isn't a bad place to grab something to eat and drink. The relaxed atmosphere and casual setting right on the sand overlooking the bay adjacent to the Resort makes for a good experience. The service is swift and the kitchen efficient. If you're looking for gourmet, this... More

We have eaten at this restaurant each time we visit Turtle Bay. The food is consistently well prepared and tasty. The real attraction is the view. Right on the beach, the view is spectacular. The menu is somewhat limited and choices for children are meh. The fresh fish choices are usually the best. In my opinion, the caliber of food... More

We had a great dinner experience at Ola's. Good variety of menu items, some unique appetizers and great cocktails. Seating is open air not far from the beach so great views. During the day, this is the bar, snack food and lunch area for the beach goers and then transforms itself into a dining experience for the evening. Would suggest... More

It is always a shame when we see potential that is squandered. A stunning location - a terrific ambience. And in this case, the first sentence pretty much sums it up. Not that this is a bad restaurant - simply that it has some many advantages that other places might die to have...then it comes up short on the ABC's.... More

We stayed at Turtle Bay Resort and splurged on a meal at Ola's for my birthday. They were extremely accommodating when we asked to change our reservation time, and provided us with a beautiful table beneath a palm tree on the beach. Excellent service and spectacular view. The salmon was outstanding; my husband ordered the scallops and was surprised that... More
