The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food tasted very good. You can have a drink at the upper floor after dinner!

Once you enter this place you get the sense of being in Mexico. Great decor, very good drinks and very nice service. Food is above what you expect and if you happen to go on a Friday or Saturday night, the place is full with nice people to talk and share experiences.

We sat at the front bar for a few drinks and snacks. Fun lively atmosphere and service. Right by the main arch in town. A good local spot to start or end the night.

This is not a bad restaurant by any stretch of the imagination, although both my husband and I had GI problems after eating there. It's fun to soak in the Frida vibe, but the food was just very average. Maybe I am spoiled because I live in a town with a lot of amazing Mexican restaurants. Just nothing special about... More

This place is much hyped so i checked it out whilst in Antigua. Everything was ok, the food the drinks, but there this does not compare to food eaten in Mexico. It's also really expensive for what it is, i was used to paying half the price of this for better food in really great places in Mexico. Cactus is... More

Wow, this place is good! We started off with mojitos which were superb and they also brought us a complimentary glass of soup to sip on. This was also amazing. I ordered nachos with beef and they were sooo tasty. My partner had tacos and thought they were incredible too. What I also loved were the 3 condiments they brought... More

Stayed in Antigua several days and ate here several times. Food was great, margarita delicious, and servers did a very nice job. They recognized me each time after the first visit and that made me feel welcome. Great shrimp tacos and I enjoyed all the artwork on the walls, cool atmosphere too. Prices are what you would expect on Calle... More

Been there twice on the same visit to Antigua. Everything we tried was super delicious: chicken borito, nachos, margaritas, sangria and flan. It isn't cheap but it is totaly worth it.

Plus good food, daily specials, and decent service. 2 for 1 drink specials too, whats not to love? If you like Mezcal, they have the best selection in town and 2 for 1 Fridays!

Right in the heart of Antigua there's this café/restaurant/bar that's named after the famous female painter. And she is all around in this place. It looks great, especially if you like Frida Kahlo and /or her work. You can enjoy coffee there in the afternoon, have dinner or go afterwards for some nice cocktails. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.
