This was our families best meal in Hanelei. It came with a price - not cheap and they suggested two tapas per person. Sangria was tasty and all the food was excellent - had to try the honeycomb with cheese and apples. We went early on a week night and just barely got a table as someone cancelled. Service was...

We stopped by here for dinner knowing it was one of the nicer restaurants in the area, so we weren't expecting an inexpensive dinner, but for what we got, it was priced too high! We had the gazpacho (which was amazing) and it *may* be worth the $12, but it was still a small bowl. We also ordered the bruschetta... More

Again, turned up on the off chance. Should gave booked, but managed to get a couple of seats at the bar. Great choice of high quality tapas. Nice choice of drinks. This place is not cheap, but it attracts celebrities so it doesn't suit everyone. Wouldn't go there with kids, but great for adults and couples. Tuna was just awesome.... More

Bar acuda is a very cool tapas bar. Food is amazing: many different plates excellent in quality and presentation. Drinks are great (their white sangria is so good!). Portions are not big, it is ok to share many different plates in two (best way to dine here) but if you are really hungry it can become very expensive :) Lovely... More

During our time on the North Shore we had occasion to visit several unique restaurants - Bar Acuda was a highlight. Serving Tapas, we had an opportunity to sample many different dishes - the Date Salad, Snapper and Short Ribs were particularly delicious. The restaurant does not open until 6:00 and we had not made reservations (who knew?), but we... More

Book a table at this place definitely if you are in Hanalei. The food was awesome and service was very friendly. My friends and I had a fun and lively night at this bar/restaurant sharing their tapas style food and some lovely cocktails and wine. A highlight of our Kauai trip!
