The service and ambiance were great. It's hard to truly do Mexican Gourmet...and in some ways Frida tries too hard to keep up with her Italian and French cousins on the Grand Velas property. Stand alone, I think the dishes are good, but in the context of eating at a Mexican restaurant in Mexico...we were expecting something different. The staff... More

We ate at Frida several times during our stay at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Why? Because the food was absolutely brilliant and the staff was incredibly friendly! Frida also had a better atmosphere than the other two restaurants at the hotel.

Spanish charm with a sunset view not to be missed. Extensive wine selections to go with anything on the menu. Order anything and you will not be disappointed.

The food and service were terrific. The unique appetizers were fun to try. We enjoyed the tableside Guacamole chef. It was our favorite restaurant of our vacation.

Fine-dining with a wide selection of menu from seafood to various poultry. We tried the deep-fried crickets for the first time, can't say that I liked it, but it was interesting experience. Music was great and the magician who played tricks with the card really added extra fun to the dinner

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
