We were staying at the Courtyard Isla Verde and wanted to get something for takeout to eat while overlooking the ocean at our hotel. We initially stopped at a highly rated bakery and deli to the west of the hotel. This highly rated bakery and deli (you can likely figure out which one) was dirty, smelled funny, and had insects...

Not terribly authentic Mexican food, but decent and reasonably priced. It is always busy and in this area of town it does not havea lot of competition.

The location was good. Slow service. The food was average. The seating was crowded and loud. Expensive for the food ordered. No nachos offered.

Been there several times. A nice place to have a drink ( nothing special) margarita, tequila, cervezas,. Fajitas are aceptable but not fresh at all. Would say if you are looking for a place to relax yourself and with friends but are not feeling demanding for good food and drinks this is the place to go... Prices equal to the... More

We ate here the first night we were in Puerto Rico. There was 4 of us and after about an hour and a half of being there we finally got our food that was very medíocre. The shredded chicken in my burrito was delicious but that was the only thing thing that was and it was the only thing in... More

We enjoyed Lupi's. The atmosphere, drinks, and food were great!! The wings were absolutely fantastic! My order was wrong, but nothing major. The chicken tacos were good.

My boyfriend and I felt like this restaurant was a little pricey for Mexican food however the food did taste very fresh and delicious. I ordered the steak asada the steak was tender and went well with the yellow rice and beans. My boyfriend ordered the pork chops, he enjoyed it. We didn't really like our drinks they lacked choices... More

If you are in Isla Verde, stop by for a margarita with Miguel at Lupi's. They have three varieties of nachos and some Mexican and Puerto Rican food that's going to make your day. These are definitely the best Margies on the strip.

Who eats Mexican food in San Juan? If you want to enjoy this cuisine, Lupi's is the place to go. The Mexican food - we had enchiladas - is soooo good. The drinks are equally fabulous. Be sure to check out all the sports memorabilia.
