“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Me and a friend were going to meet at a neighboring restaurant. As it was closed, we went to Frida instead, a first for me. We were met by a very jovial waitress who took good care of us. She was very attentive and professional, treating us to an array of different salsas. She – or the kitchen – forgot bringing us nachos, but as she realized their mistake, she immediately offered us free coffee as an apology. The food was excellent, and the interior features comfy chairs and paintings of (not by) Frida Kahlo. I'll definately go there again.

“Great food and excellent, serviceminded staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Saturday 16. March, we had made a dinner reservation for a group of 25 friends. We arrived seperately, and on every arrival we were met with the greatest kindness, being asked if we wanted something to drink whilst waiting for the rest of the party.

Such great service, big smiles and genuine helpfulness is a pleasure to be a part of! AND, in addition, the food was amazing! We all had PLATO FRIDA Y DIEGO, a sharing platter. Fantastic food!

For dessert, we had home made passionfruit sorbet - best I've ever had! And a few of us also tried the deliscious Mexican Coffee - SO worth it!

From all of us to all of you: This is one of the best mexican meals I've ever had! And 24 of my friends totally agree :)

“Not tex mex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We were expecting homemade tortillas. My Argentinian friend was told by the waitress that they were made in the kitchen. Umm. We both agreed they tasted commercial, were very gummy and resembled Santa Maria. Oh well. Beans were missing, which are a staple in Mexcio. My sauce tasted like it came from a ketchup bottle. But the kids loved it, so we might go back. Service was fantastic though, so I rate average overall.

“Nice and special mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

This was not the average fast-food-nachos joint, but a really god authentic Mexican restaurant. I had the filled capsicum which was DE-LI-CIOUS - the meat was very tender and fine. Of course, it's in Norway so it's all very expensive but you have to live with that when you are here. The staff was also friendly.

“Best place in Trondheim for authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

I've eaten there 3 times and never been disappointed. Spicy but flavourful dishes with unusual ingredients
