Awesome fish/shrimp tacos were great, huge and very tasty. Service could have been better but this seems to be a trend with a lot of places on the island.

We were looking for fish tacos close to our hotel in Princeville and Frederico's was the closest to us. After reading the reviews we decided to give them a shot, but we were a little apprehensive after reading about the size of the tacos being small. Not sure what that reviewer got but the 2 fish tacos and 1 shrimp... More

Great Mexican take-out breakfast according to my Houstonian husband. He was very surprised by the authenticity. A small number of tables outside that are shared with Le Petit Bakery.

We were hungry. In the mall in princeville. Small Mexican place. It was what we thought it was. Filled the hole with typical Mexican fare. Not too expensive so hit the spot.

We were there with five young kids and two adults and everyone found something they loved (especially the adults). Although they do offer the standard Mexican items (quesadillas, burritos, etc), they had some unique salad options which were delicious. Also, great outdoor seating.

Quaint location with shared dining tables and live entertainment in the evenings. Cute spot and the food is great. Carne asada burrito was good. Chicken burrito was also good. They even had chicken tenders for my 4yr old and he loved them. Good place for a family meal on a low budget here in Princeville.

Have eaten at Federico's several times. Portions are large and the food is excellent. Order, give them your name and they'll deliver your meal to you. Give it a try! Highly recommended.
