We were looking for vegetarian options... we ordered a veggie burger, a vegetarian fajita, and a vegetarian taco salad. Everything was pretty mediocre... lots of raw onion, in excess, like plate filler. We won't choose this place again.

This was a fun open air Mexican restaurant. I had the "Chimichanga: We take our Lupi’s Burrito and deep fry it." taken from the Lupi's website. I know I probably should have had a Puerto Rican dish but I was really in the mood for some Mexican. Nice atmosphere, staff was a little slow to get the drinks out initially.... More

It was really difficult to find a place open to eat on Christmas Eve in Isla Verde, as most places we had planned to dine had closed early. We settled upon Lupi's--from the street it looked fun. Unfortunately, there were not outside tables--we had to dine inside. It wasn't so bad--they had a number of TVs showing NFL and NBA... More

Lupi's is right outside the hotel, ESJ Azul Towers. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Service is excellent! Fajita's were delicious! Lime margarita on the rocks is refreshing and tasty. I highly recommend Lupi's Mexican Grill.

This is the third time I've eaten here and its just a really good casual place. Fast service and you can sit outside on the patio and people watch. The shredded beef is so good and they give you plenty of food to take back to the hotel for later.

Went to Lupis because it was close to our hotel. Ordered a plantainburrito that was decent and a meat mofongo, the mofongo gave me a garlic breath that i woke up with the next day. It was also so oily that we didn't want to finish the meal. I never tried this dish before so maybe thats the proper way... More

The food was ot the typical Mexican food. It had their own special flavor and presentation. Our server, Dwight, made the experience fantastic with his energy, customer service and smile. I wish I had 10 Dwights' working at my business!

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 . I use to be a server , and the rule is to check on your guests 3 minutes after you drop meals. No sauces no... More
