Free parking is rare in Isla Verde so that's a bonus. Good service in either the covered patio or the dining room and bar. I get the Puerto Rican burrito. Sweet plantain with pork just goes well together.

Visited Lupis on Thanksgiving Day 2016. Food was good . Affordable. You can get a meal for $12 per person. Service was not bad, but could've been better . They were not very accommodating .

Unfortunately i got sick on the trip and because of this I wasn't able to walk very far and stayed in our hotel, however we were walking distance to Lupis. Lupis does not take orders on the phone but they do takeout. The food was so delicious, I was very impressed with their grilled chicken. We got steak mofongo YUM.... More

This restaurant smelled like clorox and bar sell. Looks very run down. Food amount was small and not very special. Prices were too high for what they served. The wait staff was friendly and helpfull.

Lupi's was a good place to sit down for appetizers (pretty big portion!) and a drink. The food was good - but very unhealthy, which is the only reason I won't be going again.

We enjoyed our mexican dinner and the employee was very nice to us. If you like mexican food and drinks you can come here and watch futball and basketball games at the same time you enjoy your food .

The server/bartender Leo was not only courteous and professional, but a plethora of information for the country of Puerto Rico. He treated us with nothing but respect and dignity and made us feel at home. There may be a place for us to live in the near future if model gentlemen like Leo are around.

Service was friendly enough and there were a lot of selections, but perhaps we just didn't pick the right ones . Taco salad was soggy and nothing to write home about Chicken breast was small and tough despite marinated and sides were mediocre. Perhaps we've been spoiled with a few years in Texas where Mexican is top notch. Our experience... More
