The culinary scene is just as diverse, with Bar Acuda and Ama being the star attractions created by San Franciscan chef Jimmy Moffat. The Dolphin boasts Kauai’s freshest and largest seafood selection, with a sushi lounge and fish market. For more intimate fare try Postcards Cafe romantic setting. Kalypso Island Bar & Grill is the local sports bar with cocktails and casual food at its bamboo bar. The Tahiti Nui featured in the movie The Descendants is a great spot for Mai Tai's (translates to the "very best" in Tahitian), hula and local music.
There is also a wonderful food truck scene next to the iconic (and bustling) Hanalei Liquor Store, with delectable sandwiches and bowls at Fresh Bite Kauai, fantastic Mexican fare at Tropical Taco, and others serving everything from Hawaiian-style poke to authentic Asian dishes. Hanalei Bread Company is a local hotspot for baked goods and coffee. Akamai Juice is another local favorite, providing a delicious vitamin fix with drinks concocted from the island’s fruits. Locally-sourced produce can also be found at the don't miss-it Saturday’s Farmers Market, which is full of fresh exotic fruits, produce and local crafts and take-away food.
