I had excellent enchiladas de mole here and an enormous (and strong) margarita. It's a fun and busy atmosphere in the evenings. It seems to be mostly visitors there. The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent. They sell Frida Kahlo inspired design merchandise. It's very expensive by Guatemala standards.

The service - 9 out of 10: The waiters are fast, efficient and attentive without being cloying. Doesn't hurt that they're also hotter than your average chile! I would have ordered one if I could have found them on the menu! The ambiance - 8 out of 10: The first time here the music was too loud. The second time... More

Good service , we had the supreme nachos and they were fantastic. The vibe could have been much better if they played Mexican music instead of pop/western music

This is a place I return to on every visit to Antigua(Which is often while living in Guatemala City). The food and drinks are always good(love the tacos). The wait staff is helpful and friendly. Great place to hang out in Antigua!

Location is perfect - right near the Santa Catalina Arch. Decor is fun, ambiance is great at night with all the candles burning, and the live music on the second floor makes for an enjoyable night out. Los Tacos Gobernador...simply amazing. The shrimp is cooked perfectly, the tortillas are just right, and the avocado adds a nice pop of color... More

As a young 20- something, this place offered so much to love! The art, incredibly pleasant and helpful staff, the food, delicious drinks and great live music. A gem in Antigua and highly recommended!

Fridas is in a handy location in Antigua and is a good place to meet up with a friend or with a crowd of friends. Food is good, and their margueritas get high ratings from diners (I don't drink alcohol). The wait staff is helpful and welcoming to big groups. It is a fun atmosphere for a special get-together with... More

Great place for lunch (and I assume dinner). A live commercial was being shot when I walked in, so I was ushered to a back table, where I could watch the shoot. I ordered the guacamole, which was outstanding a full meal. During a break in the shooting, the owner came over and asked me how everything was (I was... More
