Only a few blocks from the plaza/square. Small restaurant that has about 5-6 tables. Quaint, cozy room filled with Frida memorabilia. Quick friendly service, tasty sandwiches and good prices. Will for sure return. Cheers and happy eats.

I've heard great things about this very small restaurant but today I found all the praise well deserved. The Diego and Frida sandwich was fresh and delicious and served with a salad that had the most incredible balsamic dressing. Top it all off with a mojito and wow, what a lunch. They are closed on Sunday but also offer breakfast... More

We arrived in Jocotepec at 11am, toured the city and meet some wonderful people on the plaza who recommended El Rincon de Frida for lunch. My husband and I shared the Frida San Fransico Salad and the Le Sueno Sandwich, both dishes were expertly prepared, presented and delicious! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone come to the Lake Chapala... More

This small bistro is the premier place in Jocotepec for lunches. The salads are huge and the house dressing is outstanding. My husband loves the BLT sandwiches and my favorite is the Tuna melt, it has a surprising kick of spice, but not too hot. We have also enjoyed the soups (daily specials), and breakfast fare.

Chef German's own recipes for salads, soups and sandwiches are a refreshing change from the local heavier fare. His breakfasts are also superb. I love the cozy and charming decor, with many photos of Frida Kahlo, red velvet couches, unique lighting. And recently, on Thursday nights after 9 you can be treated to a musical duo, voice and guitar, serenading... More

El Rincon de Frida is small but it has a growing following and is rapidly becoming a favorite lunch spot for expats on the west end of Lake Chapala. Open all day and evening, with espresso coffee drinks, sandwiches, salads, and other dishes; a daily soup special; and a good wine list. The engaging young chef and owner is German,... More

El Rincon de Frida is a lovely place, the owner is Mexican but lived in California for some time. The place is charming and a must go to when in Jocotepec!
