We had an amazing meal served by Freddie, and unfortunately we didn't get the name of the 2nd young man. The tacos were amazing!!! The classic pastor will always be my favourite, and the shrimp just narrowly edged out the braised pork for 2nd place. The vibe is cool and the valet parking makes it so convenient! If you're looking for a great dinner, you should go!!!

Overall great as always. A group of 8 of us had dinner. The service was substandard. When our orders arrived they didn’t know who had what. We each ordered a few different tacos so it was very confusing to have to sort out which plate went with who. It was also difficult to understand what each order was as the servers were asking. We were finally able to get it sorted out but it was a bit frustrating when the wait person should help organize. The service also seemed rather slow and inattentive.

My favorite taco is the crusted fish. Highly recommend. Everyone that we’ve dined with has also loved them!

Great restaurant. Gringos love this place, inexpensive tacos, great margaritas, live music from the stage on the second floor. Had the best Chocolate Mousse of our trip. Great place.

Went here for our last dinner in Cabo. This place is a hidden gem! They had a live band playing music, an extensive list of mezcal and other tequila. Along with very unique taco options for anyone’s palate. Highly recommend this place to anyone! Wish we found it earlier in the trip because we would have gone back again!!

Great tasting food, very few waiters so it took a while but they were kind. The music was very loud at lunchtime and we weren’t the only table complaining, and the manager did put down the volume when we asked him to do so, much to the happiness of all. We wished they had lactose free milk and alternative milks( like almond or coconut) for our coffees- all good restaurants have these options these days, so it’s a shame. No Café de ollla either, unfortunately. A few more vegan taco options would be great as well! I will definitely go back.

Food and service are outstanding! Wish they could dial down the music. I’m there for dinner with friends and want to be able to carry on conversation without yelling at each other!!!!!
If I wanted to go to a loud music bar I would have! Too loud to enjoy meal. Wanted dessert but left to go somewhere else!
Turn it down for dinner hours. Crank it after 9pm.

Looked highly recommended and sounded like a good local experience. Food was marginal at best. I ordered three different tacos and literally you could not tell which was which except for the “fresh” fish which was so fishy I couldn’t eat it. The one margarita I ordered had no tequila in it. Overall very marginal. Plus I had walked there so was hot and elected to sit in the a/c which wasn’t working. There have got to be better taco places than this with some ambience!

Overall experience was good. The tacos are very interesting and gourmet. Some may find them great and some my think they are a little over the top. I think overall what they set out to serve is done well but they may be possibly a little overrated.

Just an awesome place for tacos! I've visited the other location in San Jose del Cabo a year ago. Liked it but it is a long drive from San Lucas. I visited LaLupita on Oct 11 with 5 visiting friends. EVERYONE in our group absolutely loved the place, the service, the vibe, the live music, the awesome service, everything was outstanding! My two pics for best tacos are the crusted fish taco and the tempura shrimp. Amazing and delicious. The chef came out personally to check on how well we liked everything (nothing but praises from this group!) A huge party was going on in the upstairs area and another large party came in while we were eating, so it is a great place to host big parties too. It isn't a place for a quiet evening dinner, but for a super fun time with amazing tacos, LaLupita is definitely The Place!

This is more than tacos, I would call them gourmet tacos and they even explained that have tacos of the month besides the regular menu. If you are a Mexican fook lover you would try this place.

We lucked upon this yummy restaurant for dinner. We went early, 6:00 and found it relatively empty. This changed later when more people arrived but we were happy for the great table. Mezcal is a house specialty and a couple of our group tried it but it was the tacos that have us still talking about our dinner. Tacos of every stuffing: scallops, braised beef, fish, chicken, etc. They were all spectacular! There was a live band that plays on a rooftop overlooking the courtyard and they were awesome! Unfortunately some exhibitionist women thought it was fun to dance topless in their hotel room overlooking the restaurant. This stopped service for a spell as the servers were more interested in that view than our service.

The only other problem was the tons of flies. Food was removed very promptly but they were really awful. I think going after dark may decrease the amount of flies and it didn't really spoil our dining. We will definitely return on our next visit and highly recommend!

This spot was a top choice on our trip to Cabo! The service was outstanding, they really went above and beyond on everything. The tacos are some of the best ones I’ve had, if you go you HAVE to get the shrimp tacos.... they are life changing!! Definitely plan to make a reservation on your trip, you won’t regret it. We will definitely be back!
