The atmosphere is ok, but the food was subpar when I went. My friend ordered a grilled chicken salad, and the chicken was rubbery and tasted bland, like it had been microwaved. My burrito was also lacking in flavor. This is "Mexican" food, or at least a PR version? There are better options in the area for good, authentic Mexican... More

If you want a bad mexican food experience go to Lupis. This place is more known for drinks and music at night. Don.t expect good food, everything tastes like leftovers.

Their menu provides Mexican, Burgers and local food. I went with the burger, not impressed. My wife went with the beef skirt and didn't like it at all. The service was very good. It's a good hangout if with a group of friends to drink and watch a game but not to enjoy a very good dinner, there are much... More

They serve mexican food that is pretty good. The indoors looked a bit claustrophobic since most of the people sit outside. They have TV at the bar area were they always have sports.

After traveling a long day my husband and I entered Lupi's for a late lunch. There was only one other diner in the restaurant, but it was during off-season at an odd time of day. Our server was attentive. Our meal just ok. It was average Mexican cuisine.

We arrived in Puerto Rico later in the evening and not wanting to go too far our Hotel recommended this place. Usually when a Hotel recommends a restaurant I am never satisfied. This was not the case. The place was a little slow on a Thursday night and we opted to sit outside to see all the foot traffic go... More

Good food, a little pricey for what you get. Very friendly staff. Had the shrimp fajitas, and they were good, but nothing special. Would go back to try other items that looked good.
