Good food - expensive margarita's

I had the grouper appetizer which was very good. San Juan is pricey for dining. The appetizer was $ 10 but the medium margarita was $ 14. I decided I would stop at one! The food I watched around me being served looked authentic and it's the only Mexican restaurant I found in the vicinity. Another... read more

Looked for a casual armosohere - found their outside patio hit the spot. Very good fish taco, perfectly seasoned pork chops. Attentive staff, very enjoyable dinner!

Aten here twice on a recent trip to San Juan. The burrito and enchiladas were very good. If you are staying in the area I recommend this restaurant.

The food was OK but definitely not Mexican except in name only. Drinks good. Service typically slow Island. Should rename restaurant to PR-Mex.

The food here is good and the location is great with parking but the portions are too small and it's a bit overpriced for what it is.

Despite the mixed reviews, we decided to give Lupi’s a try as the food looked good and, fleeing the winter weather of the Midwest, we really wanted to sit outside and enjoy the evening’s beautiful December San Juan weather. We were very pleased with our experience; the outdoor seating and atmosphere was nice and festive, the service was prompt and... More

This place was recommended by co-worker and we had a blast. The music was 80's style that night and the drinks we great. I have no idea what the bartender made for me but it was delicious. I would def hangout in this place again since I was there for drinks, not food.

We ate at Lupi's and the food was great. My wife and I were just walking down the street and saw restaurant, so we decided to try it. Not only was the food awesome, but our server, Miguel, was awesome as well. He provided excellant service and he was very friendly. We sat outside in the patio bar area and... More
