"I am inspired by traditionally prepared regional food that respects seasonality and is rooted in simplicity."

- Jim Moffat

Bar Acuda Restaurant, Hanalei

Bar Acuda is Kaua‘i’s coolest place to relax with friends, share tapas and sip some wine. Chef & owner Jim Moffat’s culinary sensibility originates from the people and food he experienced during years of travel to the Mediterranean regions of Europe – including Southern France, Italy, Spain and Portugal – as well as twenty-five years of honing his craft at his award winning San Francisco restaurants.


E' Komo Mai - "come inside" and experience the warm glow of restaurant Bar Acuda, just steps away from the inspiring mountains and waterfalls of Hanalei.
