Great Mexican Food restaurant

There a pretty good range of delicious dishes among the menu of this place. Amazing decoration and exquisite Mexican food. You must try more than one to test the experience of good authentic food.

Of all the restaurants that we tried during our five day visit to San Luis Potosí, El México de Frida stands well above the rest. Most restaurants we visited were good, but none compares to this one. The menu is presented in a multipage booklet with good art, each dish and drink is briefly explained. We tried several small plates,... More

This place gets you tripping in amazement. It's décor is circa bohemian 1900's, all Mexican folklore art, paintings, drawings etc. The food and service are very good. I had "enchiladas potosinas", very different than your regular enchiladas and they are excellent, my friends all ordered different dishes, so we got to taste a bit of all. We also enjoyed Mexican...

This restaurant is located near the city center on a quiet, dark street in a large, renovated, 3-story house, with the covered, open-air bar on the top floor. Parking is in a small lot besides the restaurant with an attendant or on the street. Prices are expensive for Mexico, about the same as you would pay in a 3 star... More

It is a nice restaurant with good food. We ordered Chiles Ventilla, potato skins, tapas and beef and it was all good. Because it was early November they had an altar with cat rings for decoration

I went to this restaurant for dinner and it wasn't quite what I expected. I'd heard that it was expensive and expected a formal setting but it had a very casual vibe, which I liked. the menu was also unusual and the Mexican food was a bit unusual, containing items I had not seen before. food also ranges from very...

Delicious mexican food and excellent service. I arrived with a large party (13 people) without previous reservation at dinner time. The staff was attentive and immediately arranged a table for us. They were also kind enough to let us know when parking was available so we could move our car (we had parked in one of the main avenues that... More

I took a girl here for our first date and it was perfect. The host and hostess were friendly in a genuine way. Management is very interested in customer satisfaction...to the extreme.
