This is a delightful restaurant with a very diverse menu. I love the little truck filled with fried mushrooms to start! The atmosphere is amazing and a must visit while in San Luis!!

What a Fridalicious experience! A monomaniacal restaurateur gave the world a virtual Fridaland. He's lucky he hooked up with an amazing chef or he would have just come off as obsessed. Shame on me for failing to take note of the menu item I had....More

The restaurant is really colorful and with a strong Mexican decor. As it's name suggests, there are photos of Frida Kalo. The food is good. I love the Ventilla pepper. A red pepper filled with cheese and a sauce made with condensed milk. Sounds weird,...More
