Tucked down the cobbled side street next to Charing Cross station, Lupita is ideally situated on a busy thoroughfare and always attracts a big crowd. The downside to that is it can attract after-work revelers who are a little tipsy, but don't let that put you off. There are not many Mexican restaurants with the quality of Lupita on this side of the city center and as an added bonus, visitors are invited to choose a combination of dishes to concoct one delicious variety meal. The mostly Mexican staff is friendly and accommodating and despite being rushed off their feet, they attend to tables swiftly and professionally.

Mestizo is the Mexican word used to describe people who are descendants of Mexican and Spanish bloodlines. Essentially it means fusion, thus Mexican and European flavors are superbly represented here in an exotic blend of delicious cuisine. The decor is as rich and stylish as the food, with the sultry red walls offset by glamorous chandeliers and subtle lighting that makes for a calm and elegant ambiance. Dishes are presented with artistic flair and though it may appear that the food on your plate is sparse, meals are deceptively filling though people with giant appetites may not agree. Impressive as the food might be, it's the tequilas served here that have the biggest fan following. You haven't really enjoyed yourself if you haven't tried one of the succinct mezcals or tequilas served here.
