only the name is mexican. Everything else is just non-mexican. It is so poorly lit that it looks like a cold dungeon. Only one waiter for the whole restaurant. There is no heating place. Even while ordering food the menu is snatched from your hands...More

I love la lupita! Mainly because I'm a huge fan of mexican food and it's the only place in Montevideo that offers 100% mexican food. I always ask for Entomatadas! Another strong point is the service, it's excellent.

It's a small place, but it cooks the real stuff. No texmex food here, only truely Mexican food. Strong margeritas. It's a very good service and great drinks and food. Be aware of the chilli.

When you have to have your Mexican food fix, this is the place. Good food, well prepared, great service. The can prepare your order as spicy or not, as you like it. Great place for a late night break from the local choice of beef....More

If you must have a burrito or taco you should come here. Food is average, drinks too, but you can find Mexican products, Dos Equis beer, and (if you ask for it) a bit of spicy food.
