Lupita is a Peruvian restaurant located in El Centro in Medellín with good ceviche and other seafood that hasn’t been discovered by many expats.

This is one of my favorite Peruvian restaurants in Medellín. I have eaten at this restaurant several times and the service and food has been very good.

In my experience, the dishes at this restaurant chain are well-prepared and well-presented. It’s a hidden gem that hasn’t been discovered by many foreigners due to being located in El Centro. And this is one of the best restaurants located in El Centro.
