Full Description
Bar Acuda is located in Hanalei, close to the center of Hanalei Beach Park (Black Pot Beach), and is Kauai's self proclaimed "coolest place to relax with friends, share tapas, and sip some wine."

The restaurant has a Bali-modern vibe with live jazz music and classic movies and nature videos displayed on televisions.

The owner here is Chef Jim Moffat and his food is inspired from years of travel to Southern France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. It's European inspired bar food with some tasty looking options on the menu.

Oh, yummy! Bar Acuda is excellent and I really enjoyed the Steak Banderillas. Go for the Tropical Fruit Crisp for dessert, it's so yummy.

Had a delicious pork belly entree here that was just out of this world delicious. I'd come back just for that any day of the week.

Bar Acuda has many hundreds of 4 and 5 star reviews on its side with a lot of loyal fans.

Many have truly fallen in love with this place and we've seen several claiming it to be the best food on Kauai. There is usually high praise for service here as well.

On the flip side, there are a few who disagree with all of the hype and don't see what's so special about Bar Acuda, though they are the minority for sure.

We've also read a few complaints on the prices being a bit high for what you get on some dishes.
