“Casual atmosphere with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Good quality food served promptly. Portions not too large, which is great for British expectations! Soft shell crab tacos was the special - and they were lovely.

“Mexican Food & Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

What's the odds of going to this restaurant a second time on Cinqo de Mayo and getting the same waitress? That's what happened to us last year and this year . . . Chloe (since it's not a common name, it clicked my memory of the prior year) gave us excellent service both times. The food is excellent and the holiday makes for a fun time. Making fresh guacamole tableside was interesting to watch and the results were very tasty. If in this area, this is a very enjoyable place to have a meal if you enjoy Mexican food.

“Tacos with a Twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We visited Frida's on recommendation from some friends who were in Stowe last year. I'm glad we did. They have a large selection of different tacos, which we were forewarned were tiny. Of course, this led me to order four tacos for myself and then I could only eat three. I think the three taco + slaw/beans is sufficient for your average appetite.

We ordered the "tableside" guacamole, which was actually not made tableside at all. It was good. It came in a GIANT mortar/pestle, which was a fun presentation.

My husband and I ordered a variety of chicken, pork and steak tacos and enjoyed them all, especially the skirt steak and the carnitas.

This is not your typical Mexican taco stand, but don't discount it. The food was really good!

“An evening to remember for all the wrong reasons”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This restaurant scores nil for customer service. Stowe is a busy place we accept but they took our booking for 7.00 pm and when we arrived we waited some time for our table to be ready. The restaurant was very busy but we were welcomed by the hostess and shown to a table. There were six of us, my husband and me, my daughter and her husband and two children aged 6 and 9. We were given our menus and brought drinks. The server was more interested in the couple at the next table, who were drinking cocktails, than she was in serving us. We did not receive some of the items ordered and could not get the attention of our server to ask. We decided not to bother and to leave as soon as possible. The children's meal ordered for the nine year old consisted of a few chicken nuggets with nothing else. It was not enough to feed a 4 year old. We waited for our food for a long time and waited and waited for the bill to come. The final straw was to find that 18% had been added to the bill for service as we were a party of 6. Two of the six were under 10! Shame on you Frida's..
