My boyfriend loved the fish tacos. I loved the guacamole that was made fresh at our table. It had a little kick to it--so delicious. We got serenaded by a gentleman with an amazing voice. The service was excellent and it was a great spot to people watch.

Jesus made the evening delightful. Please ask for him, your service will not disappoint. Had the Octopus and Chef special made it for us. We celebrated a birthday and were not oversold, nice prices and simple wine list. Highly recommended.

Two of us had the Wings to Fly and one person had the Mother Earth. The 4th person did not have salad. Well, the 3 of us that had salads got Montezuma revenge. Our concierge thinks they washed the veggies in tap water, not purified. Not the best way to spend your vacation. This is the Frida in Playa Del... More

Drawn in by the second floor patio and art of Frida Kahlo, we were seeking light eats and drinks in the early afternoon, prior to a lunch rush. The service was slow, and the overall experience was simply average. It -- along with so many places along 5th Ave -- felt more touristy, not especially authentically local.

We had a delicious couple of meals at the place. The food and cocktails are wonderful and the service is very good for the area. Do not order wine as they are not well versed in wines and do not take proper care of them but hey it's not a location where you should expect it.

With so many restaurants in Playa del Carmen we found a gem, tucked upstairs from the crowded 5th Avenue, you are in an open air room that feels like you are in a beautiful cosmopolitan city. Service was excellent and food was delicious and dramatic, one of us got something that came with a large dome on top, the waitress... More

Nice restaurant and easy to find something on the menu for any or all of the guests. Menu is varied burgers, steak, pasta etc. Also is nice if you can get a table outside to people watch.

This is a wonderful restaurant! The manager, Silvio, is absolutely amazing! He is so caring and thoughtful. He made us feel like very valued guests. He runs a great restaurant with fantastic service. He is such a genuinely caring person and added so much to our stay. We can't wait to go back and see him! I definitely recommend this... More

We were a party of 4 and it was my turn to choose where we went…..I am so happy I picked Frida! Started with the guacamole served with strawberries, delicious! Then We all got something different; the salmon was amazing, octopus was meaty, and hibiscus enchiladas to die for. Everything came out and it looked like a piece of art.... More
