After our cruise, took a San Juan bus tour and the driver brought us here for lunch. The service was quick, staff friendly, food and drinks better than expected. Happy we ate here and would recommend it for others. Especially loved the salt scrub in the ladies room and would like to know where I can purchase some.

We were hesitant given some bad reviews. Honestly we found it delicious! We had the pulled beef, chicken and pork and all were very tasty. Service was prompt and friendly. Definitely recommend!

Lupi's is a great spot to hang in Isla Verde, Good food & good music. It's located right under ESJ condos.

On a girls trip to San Juan pr we decided to try the local fare. We went to lupi's. The manager came over and introduced himself. We asked him to explain mofungo. He brought us a trial size (for 6) so that we could taste it. He explained how it was made. It was delicious. Mofungo is a common dish... More

Loved the atmosphere, outdoor patio and music. We had appetizers and drinks. Antonio as our server. He provided great service and was very attentive. We received our food and drinks right away. Food was a little bland but nothing hot sauce couldn't fix.

I visited PR from TX and everyone said the food was really good here. But it was nasty Mexican food I've ever had. The enchiladas had marinara sause. The nachos are over priced chips and dry cheese.

Went with my family and had the tacos and burrito, no flavor and very disappointed. Chilis is right across the street and thought the food would be good based on chain competition so close. That is not the case.

First of all the place looks like the put random Mexican stuff all over the place and a bunch of tv's. The food wasn't seasoned especially the chicken fajitas. It was just boiled and grilled chicken and some sautéed onions. I can make that at home!!! I asked for some spices and they just gave me a cup of Cajun... More
