Excellent choice of a wide variety of Mexican foods, including some regional picks. Absolutely delicious, though it appears to cater a bit more to tourists/foreigners than to the local crowd.

Some friends from San Luis recommended this place. It is truly a very good place. The place is creatively decorated "Frida" style. You can choose to be inside, darker and fresh, or go on the roof terrace (smoking area). You need to try the "Enchiladas Potosinas", which are the local delight, the "torta tenoch" of arrachera, accompany this with one... More

If you want a place where you can bond with your friends on business or personally you have the right spot. Lots of colour and charisma here. I came hear a lot 17 years ago and gave it a shot this week hoping it was what I remembered and it delivered. Don't expect a gourmet meal but do expect a... More

The atmosphere is good, and the food is delicious. Once I complained and they immediately responded kindly. I think that is a good point for any restaurant. I go there about once a month nd have tasted most of their menu.. all very good.

We received recommendations to visit this restaurant and we've definitely had a good time, the food is very tasty and the dishes are not the common ones, the decoration of the place is also very oriented to traditional Mexican style, we've enjoyed this recommendation and we'll be back if any opportunity. We've received a very good service from a lady... More

We revisited Mexico de Frida again after we liked the food a few months ago. The service during our first visit was good. But this visit the service was horrible. The server was not very hospitable. Asked for the kids menu but did not get one (even though last visit they had a proper menu). Had to repeatedly ask for... More

This place used to be one of my favorites. Last night I had dinner there and it was awful. The food is still good and they even have special dishes on Mondays, but the service was terribly slow and the worst part of all was the weather. For some reason they chose to open only the third floor which has... More
