    Great service and lively vibe. Awesome wine list. We got 4 plates for 2 ppl + a dessert and it was plenty food. The endive salad, lentils, bruschetta and choc ice cream w/cookies are not to be missed.

    Probably the best restaurant on Kauai. Reservations a must. I liked the lamb riblettes, risotto croquettes and the local honey comb.

    great spot, but chronically under seasoned. ask for a side of sea salt. also, ask for a side of all the sauces and chutneys. all super delicious and you'll want more than they plate.

    Highly recommend trying this spot while you're in town. Especially the honeycomb. I have never had a better goat cheese dish. Simple and delicious. Spinach salad and scallops were also divine.

    All of the dishes are well prepared. The lamb ribs, the crostini, and the scallops are the standouts. It gets busy during high season, but you can usually find room at the bar.

    Great food! Best we've had in Hanalei. The Albondigas, Banderillas, and the lamb riblettes were all delicious. Atmosphere and service also very good. Definitely recommend Bar Acuda!

    The lamb riblettes are phenomenal. We really liked the honeycomb and cheese plate as well. The chorizo was excellent: they age the meat and prepare the sausage themselves.

    Food was good, but the flavors were really strong (we got the the honeycomb, crostini, seared ahi, and pizzetta). Enjoyed the ahi the most. 4 tapas and 2 drinks totaled $100

    Truly a gem on Kauai. Jim Moffat (Slow Club) has an inventive, ever changing menu that would stand out anywhere. Great wine list as well.

    Despite using the word tapas quite loosely, the food and cocktails are still pretty amazing. Inspired small plates with great flavors.

    First good dinner I’ve had in Hanalei. Lamb, pizette, croquette and pineapple crisps were highlights. Cocktails were ok but might stick to wine

    Everything is delicious but stick to meat - better value - scallop dish was $15 and just one scallop!

    Tapas...if you like that sort of thing. I don't. Small portions for the Mahi Mahi and Scallops. Broccoli was solid.

    Yukon potato was off the HOOK and the fluffy coconut cake was most awesome. First impression at the front desk was rude. She tried to give us a shitty table. Waitress made up for Ms. Nasty :)
