Bars & Cafes


BarAcuda is one of the few really good restaurants around the coast of Kauai—this sharp little tapas restaurant is different and refreshing. The passion in food can be seen in the ever changing brief menu, which is recreated or updated every week. The recipes here are innovative and devoted to fresh and seasonal produce, so you get only the best. You might encounter slow-braised beef short ribs with date and almond salsa seca, fried fish cakes, creamy polenta salt or any number of items to share. The dining room is intimate or you can relax outside among the lush greenery on tables in the covered wooden porch.

Location:  5-5161 Kuhio Hwy suite C-4, Hanalei Center
