Pretty good!

My wife and I enjoyed coming here a few different times. The main things that stood out as amazing were the grouper fingers (very well seasoned and properly cooked) and the chicken meat used for any of the tacos/burritos/etc tastes amazing. The drinks are a little expensive and were poured a... read more

Great place for tourists because of the location, but the food and drinks miss the mark. I'd venture out of your comfort zone a little more and hit one of the smaller, more hidden spots. If have to have an American Mexican style place it might do for you, but don't say I didn't warn you!

We just finished eating here. Mofondo was very dry with no sauce or broth. We waited 55 minutes for our food due to "couple of large parties". Chicken Mofondo, chicken wrap, beef quesadillas with 2 water bottles and 2 milks was $48. Ripoff.

We ate a late lunch here on a Thursday. Place was otherwise dead but I've seen it look busy during the evening. Stale chips ( served with salsa ) and margaritas are expensive - $13 each. Food ok. Antonio was our server - he was friendly and engaging. Somewhat of a (ahem) tourist trap in my opinion.

Lupi's was the restaurant of choice of our small tour group leader who chose to delight us with local fare before we headed off to the airport. Great stop! Fast, friendly service and wonderful food. We tried the Puerto Rican burrito filled with shredded chicken (you may also choose beef) and all sorts of goodies before being stuffed in a... More

Lupi's has employees roaming the beach handing out buy get one free house drinks to lure you into their restaurant. Once you arrive, prepare to wait. Very slow service although you see many employees running around. It appears very disorganized. The food is inconsistent, over priced and not worth your time. My husband ordered a margarita with patron, the menu... More

A tourist trap if I've ever seen one. The restaurant looks inviting....Music playing on the outside, outdoor seating, something you'd see in the states. Don't let that fool you. The food is WAY over priced for what you get and the service is soo slow. Painfully slow. 20 minutes for two diet cokes, an hour for food. No, the place... More
