New Short Order Cook

What a disappointment. Looks like the chef left and they hired a new cook. The rare steaks came out well done. We sent it back and rare was raw. The third time was the charm. It was served with soggy vegetables. Never did get the rolls. I won't go back.

Came here with friends - and high expectations - for dinner. We each ordered a cocktail and dinner. Went into shock when the bill arrived. Cocktails were ridiculously overpriced.

In Santa Paula for just one night and wanted a plain sensible meal. Mupu was just the ticket, nice wine, well cooked food and a lovely atmosphere thanks to a family party in for a birthday,nice rumble of noise but nothing manic.

We've been here several times, usually celebrating a birthday. The service has always been great, and the food good quality for a reasonable price. What makes it more special is the musician who plays here on the weekends. He's not overly loud, so you can still have a conversation, but it makes the evening that more special.

This place has a long history in my little historic town. It has opened, closed and changed ownerships over the years. In it's latest incarnation I can see a brighter future. It offer home style hearty, but meals with a bit of upscale gourmet flair. The food is plentiful and tastes good, and the menu changes fairly often. The service... More

I really like this old time place. I come here often for lunch. They have a great more upscale menu. Great Bison burger too.

My wife and I like to go out to dinner on the nights we have tickets to the Santa Paula Theater. The service was very good and the food met our expectations. I would go back.

The first time I visited Mupu Grill in Santa Paula was with a Groupon. The second time it was because the first time was such a good experience. They have a large menu to choose from and I chose the Bison Burger, sans bun, my husband chose the spaghetti with Marinara Sauce, which he enjoyed. The salad was field greens,... More

Our elderly fixed income, great friend took my husband and I out for dinner at MuPu Grill, the service was adequate however the prime rib was horrid.
