Bar Acuda

Hanalei Center, Hanalei

A decade out, the Who’s Who of Kauai’s north shore still comes to this north-shore small plates hot spot. Bar Acuda is the brainchild of Jim Moffat, an award-winning San Francisco chef who opened the restaurant after he moved to the island and couldn’t find a decent place to eat. The menu is tapas based, with such dishes as slow-braised short ribs and grilled pancetta-wrapped sea scallops. There are also a number of salads and lighter-fare items. His wine list—with vintages from around the world, many served by the glass—is one of the most comprehensive on Kauai. Foodies shouldn’t miss this experience.
