I actually lost my debit card there and they kept it and returned it to me. I didn't eat there but the drinks were good.

“Food took a bit to come out”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

The food took a bit to come out. Other parties sat down after us and was half way done eating before we got our food. Luckily the Pork chops came out perfect. Nice, tender, juicy. Lady next to us had a Mofungo. Looked amazing but I think its a bit over priced for $22. Maybe a tourist price?

“TERRIBLE service. Ok taste, but overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Service was terrible here. We ordered a plate of fajitas, which were decent. However, they were overpriced. The waiter did the bare minimum. Never came back for more drinks/refills or bothered checking in on us. He spent the whole time watching the baseball playoffs. Almost came over to check on us and then saw a big play on the game, so he walked back to the TV and ignored us. Pathetic!

“GREAT FIND IN OLD SAN JUAN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were lucky enough to eat at Lupis Mexican Grill Sept 12,2013 in San Juan. It was a couple blocks from the Sheraton Old San Juan where we were staying 3 days prior to cruise.

Lupis is owned by Ed Figuerou a former Yankee baseball player.

We were met at the door by Jack who became our server. Jack, made excellent suggestions. I have never had a raspberry margarita. It was excellent. Loved the salsa..Jack, had Freddy, the general manager tell us about the recipe. He said people bring it back to the mainland. It was excellent. My husband had the Fish Burrito platter and was very happy with his selection. I had the Camarones Fajitas and was very impressed.. A friend order the pork and it was without a doubt the largest pork chop I have ever seen. Had a bite and it was excellent too.

Pricing was very good.

Very fast service and Jack was very attentive. We look forward to returning for another raspberry margarita and their made fresh daily salsa. Seriously, they could sell it or at least offer to ship it home for you!!

You could dine outside but we preferred inside
