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

Great service, food and atmosphere. Loved that we arrived in ‘Happy Hour’ - the classic Margaritas were amazing! Would come back for them alone! Would have given it a 5, but have the Mexican food in California as our benchmark. Not sure how you book...More

Great location. Good food which is not only delish but affordable, my favourite was the ceviche and chicken enchilada. Awesome selection of tequila and the staff was on to it and very knowledgeable.

Lovely location on the Viaduct but we had a mixed experience. Our starter was yummy (Queso Fundido - cheese and mushroom dip with tortillas) but the tortillas appeared to be out of packet. Our favourite thing was probably the rosé sangria but we didn’t enjoy...More

Popped in here on Good Friday when a few other places were closed. Friendly service and good selection of drinks with some nice Mexican beers. Food was mainly okay but nothing out of this world with one dish a tad plain. Nacho chips portion seemed...More

We visited Auckland late February and decided that we fancied a Mexican meal. As luck would have it we passed Frida on the Viaduct area and decided to give it a try. The service was excellent from the waitress and there was no problem ordering...More
