Bar Acuda Review
This hip and pricey tapas bar is a top place in Hanalei in terms of tastiness, creativity, and pizzazz. Owner-chef Jim Moffat's brief menu changes regularly: You might find banderillas (grilled flank steak skewers with honey and chipotle chili oil), local honeycomb with goat cheese and apple, or seared island fish with macadamia nut pesto. The food is often organic and consistently remarkable, but it's the subtly intense sauces that elevate the cuisine to outstanding. The dining room is super casual, but chic, with a welcoming bar and a nice porch for outdoor dining.
