Service is good, I've been there 3 times and everytime has been great. Chile Ventilla dish is a very cool recipe. You can go only for drinking or for a entire meal and dinner. Decoration is great.. maybe too much for some people, but is Frida's style. Price is average but taste is great. Only one oportunity area: the dish... More

This is still one of my favorite spots in San Luis Potosí, food is delicious, very Mexican and the decor is worthy of a visit if you bring any friends from abroad. Service improved from the last time I was there (August) as food was served faster and our server was always on the lookout for any needs. Went there... More

It is a beautiful place even from the outside, it has a complete wall dedicated to Frida with her portrait. Once you enter (as a tip please always make a reservation) you can either enter in the main level or upstairs. The service is really fast and everything (drinks and food) is delicious!! Prices are on range and anything you... More

Saturday night and the place was very busy. All guest we seen were Mexican. Most were large tables of women. My wife commented on how beautiful the women were. Everything we ordered was good. The margaritas were exceptional.

Ok, service is not great... I would define it as simple, but food is. Without any doubt, the dishes are delicious and not only mexican but regional flavors which I appreciate much more. Decor is a little kitsch but it can be funny after some time. I had high expectation because the TA reviews and it didn't let me down.

This is a very good option to try some Mexican food, Pechuga Zorro is the special but there are some other good options to try. Very colorful place with a lot of Mexican deco based on Frida Khalo's blue house. The place is usually noisy, they always have Latin music in the background. This is definitely a place to try...

It is the typical tourist trap. Mexico has great food, this is not a place to try it, they don't seem to expect people to come back, so the service is really poor, the food was not good.

Always love coming to this restaurant. Love the decor (lots of bright colours and Frida Kahlo art), the food, the ambience and the margaritas are superb. Always try and fit in a visit if I can, even the toilets are stunning !!
