We decided to try this little reads truant for breakfast! Did not think much of it or the food! The staff was very friendly, but the food was so bland! No real flavor! Was pretty expensive! My brother and sister in law chose the breakfast Burrito. They didn't even eat half because they said it had no flavor! For 2... More

This was our first lunch after arriving at Princeville. Its in a small shopping center just past the Westin Resort. Food is really excellent. Prices were high, but after a couple of days we got used to it....they were not higher than anyone else, everything is expensive there.

My husband and I enjoyed eating at Frederico's. The fish tacos were good, fairly balanced in flavors. Actually, they've been the best we've had on Kauai. That being said, so many places have served terrible fish tacos. I enjoyed the chicken enchilada. Reasonable prices, good food. The location is in an open air food court that smells a little moldy.

Being our first morning in Princeville, we did not have time to get groceries, thus we enjoyed breakfast burritos at Federico's....they were very good. Kept using going well into the late afternoon before we needed a snack!

I live in Princeville and strongly support our local businesses. I had heard mixed reviews of this place but when my husband and I wanted to grab a simple lunch - with no great expectations - we chose this place. Normally I am temperate in my less-than-positive reviews but the food was soooo bad I'll say I would not eat... More

Overall just average. I guess I was expected better given the other reviews. It's located in the local shopping plaza among several other restaurants. Most meal items range from $4-5 for a single taco to $11-15 for a meal. You walk inside the small area they have and place your order. After we ordered they took my name and brought... More

We visited Frederico's because of Tripadvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The guacamole and chips were fresh and tasty. My carne asada taco was served hot, and it was excellent. A friend had a chicken taco, and she was very pleased. It's great to find a good, reasonably priced choice on expensive Kauai.

Arriving a bit earlier to check into our condo we decided to head up to the shopping centre to look around and grab a bite. CJ's Steak house was closed so we went to the food court. We like Mexican food and decided to try Federico's. It doesn't look like anything special. A store front with a small ordering counter.... More

Everything was made to order and the fresh salsa was great. We had fish tacos and quesadillas and would definitely go back. 1 taco is definitely enough unless you are starving. They are not open on Sundays.
