best night in 2 yearsI heard about Tortilla Republic from a coworker, so I decided to surprise my wife by taking here on a night out. me and my wife headed up to Kukui ula and we found it, we got there around 8pm for our 830pm reservation food was super good with super good prices compared to north shore, but we weren't there for the food we were there to check out Club TR, I thought was gonna be bigger lol but you know what? it was the best time I had in Kauai in the last 2years im so going back and bringing all my friends to hang out .oh and one more thing they could have started the A/C in Club TR way sooner cuz it got hot very quickly. lol5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Kauai's Best RestaurantsI've dined at Tortilla Republic many times - it's not just one of the best restaurants in the Poipu area, it's one of the best on all of Kauai. From appetizer to dessert, TR's talented chef has created a consistently wonderful menu, and the service is excellent. One of my favorite dining spots for both lunch & dinner, I always look forward to sharing Tortilla Republic with visiting family and friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite in PoipuBreakfast beneigts as good or better than New Orleans, Pedro's table side quacamole is a must have5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGuacamole At Table - Ole'The guacamole is made by a charming man right at the table. With the a wide assortment of drinks, this is a great evening stop.
We could have just eaten the guacamole and stopped there. The rest of the fare is standard mexican grub but good taste and value.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was delicious, and especiallyIt was delicious, and especially good for Mexican food at a resort! Loved the table side guacamole and the chicken enchilada suiza!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing find!In the midst of all the overpriced resort dining, Tortilla Republic was a great find! We even came here twice over our five night stay at the Hilton. The food was amazing and the service was fabulous as well.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, although theFood was great, although the yuppie clientele left a little to be desired. We came all the way to Kauai, only to feel like we were back in NY.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, attentive service,Great food, attentive service, and a nice open air ambience. A bit noisy for my taste but okay. Pricey but no more than everything else in Poipu. Manager/owner came to our table to check if everything was okay, which was a nice touch.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Breakfast in PoipuBest breakfast food on the Island now that 22North is no longer. Every item ordered was wonderful - wish we had gone earlier in the trip. Don't miss the Tomate Fresca and Chilaquiles (with chorizo) and the Huevos Divorciados. The ONLY thing that took away from this experience was a standoffish hostess on our first trip but subsequent two trips and all wait staff were excellent.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good Mexican food inVery good Mexican food in Kauai. Who knew? Beautiful patio with nice views. Be sure to have the guacamole made tableside by Pedro!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and numerous gluten-freeDelicious and numerous gluten-free options! Wish there were more of these restaurants closer to home. Looking forward to returning someday!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy coming back toAlways enjoy coming back to the Kaua'i location. The seating protocol can be a bit draconian, but other than that we really like this restaurant. The food is great and the servers are terrific.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live on Kauai and thisWe live on Kauai and this is one of our favorite restaurants. This time we especially enjoyed the Beef Short Ribs Chile Verde, the Fish Tacos, and as always the Tableside Guacamole from Pedro. The ribs were especially flavorful and tender, and the jalapeno mashed potatoes were to die for. The tacos were superb and bountiful. And nobody makes guacamole as good as Pedro. Finally, if you like Margaritas, the selection is outstanding (You can go crazy trying to select your favorite brand of tequila). Additionally, the service is hard to beat. This is definitely a mandatory destination for Mexican food.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for breakfast lunch & dinnerThe restaurant was wonderful. We ate here for dinner (upstairs) and breakfast (downstairs). The dinner was very good, with my husband getting fajitas and myself the mushroom flatbread. We were so impressed by the different flavors (for Kauai) and came here for breakfast a few days later. The breakfast options are amazing and it was our best breakfast of the vacation. The blueberry and fresh corn pancakes are something like I have never seen before (and I'm from Chicago). Tortilla Republic is great for all meals of the day.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
