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 usual Mexican restaurant, and truly "gourmet" Mexican as their ad at Fridasgourmet.com states), the waiter (seriously attentive and professional), the size of the portions (no dinner for me after such a lunch!), the atmosphere and decor (colorful Frida Kahlo portraits everywhere). The restaurant was not crowded in such an off hour but should have been, and would be in a larger city. Classical dishes, regional favorites and a well-stocked bar.
Live music every Friday at 6. This will give the Brown Lantern and Greek Island some serious competition as a favorite place to dine in Anacortes. I wish it were in Portland, where I live.
