I am no fan of the North American version of "Mexican" food and have learned that authentic Mexican food is a far cry from that generally messy and unappetizing concoction. My litmus test for authenticity when I walk into an unknown Mexican restaurant is if it offers any dishes that feature mole poblano sauce - the unique, rich sauce made... More

We attended this restaurant based on reviews and were not disappointed! We both had entrées that were variations on chile relleno's and they were excellent! Highly gourmet renditions of traditional recipes. The Cadillac margaritas were wonderful. And the guava cheesecake was light, refreshing and flavorful. Our servers were Liam, a wonderful attentive lad, and Gerardo, the co-owner, also very attentive... More

Coming from Southern California where there are all sorts of Mexican and South of the Border fare, I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I had gone whale watching with friends and they said this place came highly recommended to them. I can understand why! I love the Frida theme, and the vibe of the place. The menu had so... More

This is such a lovely place to have either a casual meal or a festive one. The food is simply delicious, beautifully presented and quite generous. Service is attentive and welcoming. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for the not so average American Mexican food.

We had dinner at Frida's on a Saturday night, party of 14. It was not very busy and we were seated in the bar area. The table next to us was a party of very loud laughing ladies. I thought, we're usually that party, but not that night. The food was Mexican food I'd never heard of before, I guess... More

We long for Frida's each time we goof up and visit a different Mexican restaurant. All their dishes have a specialty flare--even the burritos and enchiladas--with delicious mole sauce, no less. But the best and tastiest items you can't find on other Mexican menus. They offer a tasty rice, beans attractively served in a small taco shell and a really... More

Whether it is summer on the back patio or in a group set up in the long tables inside or two for dinner, we have had good service and great food every visit

What a surprise for a Mexican restaurant. We had been to one across the street a year ago that was ho-hum. Stopped here on a whim for a late lunch with a friend after scrubbing a boat interior and was delighted and surprised with the high quality of the margaritias (Yay! not from a MIX!), the menu choices (not your...

We've eaten here before and loved it but I guess over time I had forgotten how good it is. When I took my first bite I was over come by the richness and breadth of flavor. My significant other had the same experience and in fact we enjoyed our individual dishes so much we opted not to share with each... More

This is another nice surprise in Anacortes. Might be a bit too gourmet for people looking for basic mexican food. The back bar area is cool.
