Our group of 6 (vegetarians and meat eaters) fell in love with the Red Frog. The food was delicious, served quickly and well-priced. Roy accommodated our group by offering to fix dishes not even on the menu. We went back for more the next day!

I did want to go here after reading the great reviews but it was slightly far from where I was staying. I booked a massage and this place was near it. So after my massage I gave it a shot. I had the Prawn enchiladas...More

We tried out this place for breakfast and enjoyed a delicious coffee with frothed milk along with a breakfast casado. My husband and I were so impressed that we returned for lunch and enjoyed our coffee while the afternoon rain rolled in.

We stopped in for coffee and a snack mid morning and enjoyed the empanadas. Food was so good we came back for dinner. The fried rice is fantastic! Coffee is also great, owner very friendly, and lots of great souvenirs!

stopped by to get out of the rain. The owner was awesome, the electricity was knocked out and we couldn't order food. The owner allowed us to order drinks/coffee and he provided us change out of his pocket. He was knowledgeable and welcoming. Thank you...More
