Just arrived in Puerto Rico and Took a walk to the beach and decided I was hungry. I walk from the hotel and came across Lupi's. They have outside seating and an outside bar also inside dining and an inside bar. I ate at the inside bar that is tastefully Puerto Rican decorated. They have big-screen TVs. I ordered an... More

We were told that it was good but it wasn't as good as we anticipated. Had the Lupi's Nacho and we counted maybe 15 chips buried in the toppings. Soft tacos? I've had better at the Bell for 1/10th the price. Oh ya...$2.75 a pop and no refills were provided. Quesadilla's were just okay. This place was not to our... More

Walked in New Years Day so very busy were told by a very efficient young lady that the place was very busy and it could be an hour before we got food but were welcome to have a table and drinks whilst we wait. We sat down within 10 mins we had placed our order and had two ice cold... More

Restaurant needs updating, it's very old fashioned, seats need repairs. A lot of waiters but, very few caring to attend customers. There was one girl with a flashing item and that was all. We catch her attention four or five times because we needed attention and she just looked and walk away. If it wasn't for the waiter named Melissa,... More

I'm never going to this place again. Food is bad and the service is awful. Waiters were ok but the owners should consider to fire the manager. He was very disrespectful and doesn't know how to treat customers. Poor management and poor customer service.

The service was excellent and we would like to thank Raul for making us feel welcomed past midnight. The menu displays a wide variety of Mexican and Puertorican cuisine. Recommendations include the garlic grilled shrimp, carnitas, and guacamole. Regarding the ambience, the establishment offers indoor and outdoor seating options, a sports bar, interesting memorabilia, and the rhythm of salsa music... More

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 little light. Good atmosphere and attentive staff. Would definitely... 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.
