Beautiful setting, excellent service and great food. Everyone here is super attentive and know how to make their customers feel special. Our food was delicious , but my coconut ceviche ( vegetarian menu) was to die for.

We had a reservation for 16, but 4 cancelled. Our waiter was quick to change our 2 tables of 8, to a cozy table for 12. The drinks, and wine were above average. Appetizers were very good all round for the whole table. Quite the selection for both hot, and cold. The tortilla soup was especially delicious. My main was... More

During our one week stay at Hard Rock Vallarta, we visted Frida for two dinners and it was our regular place for lunches. The chef was creative and food was delicious. The marlin empenadas and banana cylinders were especially tasty. The captain Juan brought the chef to our table so we could congratulate and thank her personally. At lunch there... More

Capitán Juan and his staff did a great job! The guacamole made tableside is the best! When asked if we had any allergies, my response was yes...the staff did a wonderful job of adjusting the items so as to avoid my corn allergy. I am very pleased.

Frida - located in Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta is very pretty. Food seems to be pre made as the picky husband requested a mix and match of different items on the menu to of which they could not accommodate. No strolling mariachi players on a regular night(they have this in other Palace hotels), the churros are a must for dessert.... More

Nice location, just steps from the beach and pool. Pleasant, casual dining atmosphere. Interesting menu items, but some are better than others. Full bar, good margaritas!

Hats off to the executive chef and his team! Our small group had the opportunity to taste everything on the menu, and we were not disappointed. The presentation is visually appealing, and every bite was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend dining at Frida at least once during your stay at Grand Velas.

Buffet for lunch and table service for dinner. Our daughter wanted a special drink and with her help it was made for her.can go from pool to eat for lunch but not for dinner. They even brought us some shooters to sample. Any drink I wanted without alcohol was not a problem.
