If there's a restaurant at Grand Velas that can be skipped, it's Frida. The food was very blah. I ordered the Tuna and it was very dry (overcooked). It didn't do much for us.

Thank you for visiting our Mexican dining option Frida, and for sharing with us your comments and observations.

I regret that your dinner was not as you expected. Perhaps the overcooking of the tuna was one of the rare occasions that the cook was distracted; however this is no excuse for such a mishap and we do apologize for this. You can be assured that we have reinforced the training in this aspect, with the objective that our wait staff be more alert.

On behalf of the entire Frida restaurant team, we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and provide you, at that time, a dining experience that surpasses all your expectations. Please receive our best regards for an excellent summer.

This restaurant is the whole package! We are here twice and next trip we'll be here nightly! We had Carlos as our server the first night and requested him again because of his attention to detail, fabulous service and charisma, and his deep knowledge of the menu. The manager Hector also went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The turkey mole is out of this world and I'll be dreaming about it until our next visit to Nayarit!

Great night with great food, had the sea bass and it was fantastic, Chef Jamie was the cook and he did a wonderful job. our waitress was Abi and she keep our glasses full and every need satisfied, and the overall person in charge of the dining area was Capitain Juan who ensured that we were very well taken care of...if I return on another trip Frida's will be my first stop for dinner the service was fantastic

I enjoyed my visit to Frida. I only sampled a few items, but they have enitrely new menu so it is worth trying more. I had the charred avocado with ant eggs, and it was good - but then my American mind kind of messed with me after. NO reason, it was in my head. I also had the sea bass which was wonderful. And, gotta get the mexican coffee -- it is a show and a drink!
