After wandering around the Viaduct, we stopper at Frida for Mexican food. We weren't disappointed. Good food, friendly services and great Sangria!

We never ever eat that bad in a Mexican Restaurant. Not even the chips were good. Service is fine and the staff is nice but the food is terrible. They were looking for a new chef so hopefully it will get better but we will...More

We visited on a Monday night and we were instantly greeted and made to feel very welcome. The waiters were very attentive and throughout the evening asked if we needed anything. The food we ordered came out quickly and it was full of flavour.

Went with a few girlfriends for Friday lunch. Very good service and with a smile food also measures up. No lunch special so seemed expensive but we all felt like it was well worth it and great location would return.

My lovely wife and I dropped in for lunch and were fortunate enough to be seated outside on a table in the sun, which on a winters day was very pleasant indeed. I chose the chicken enchalada which was superb, and came in a delicious...More
