“Laid Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

One of the first things we noticed when we walked by was that there wasn't anyone out in front trying to draw you in - like almost every other restaurant on Hidalgo. It's at the northern end so a little quieter but definitely worth eating here as the food was delicious and you can just relax and enjoy. Fredy's shrimp and the Mexican plate were awesome and I'm a sucker for queso fundido (baked cheese). Fredy's feels more like a local restaurant than a lot of the others on Hidalgo. We enjoyed it and would eat here again.

“Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is not polished visually but the food is incredible! Walking down the street on Isla Mujeres looking for a place to eat a couple eating signaled a thumbs up to us! We checked out the menu. It didn't have a ton of frills, it just looked simple. We thought what the heck!! Are we ever glad! It was the best food of the entire 2week vacation! It was clean and reasonably priced with excellent margaritas. The owner has a crazy sense of humor that added to the amazing experience!!!

“Great Pork Chops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

Great food here, we had the pork chops which were fabulous; however, the drinks were not great and the service was very slow. Although they appeared to be very short of help the evening we went. I would definitely go again but I wouldn't waste my money on the cocktails.

“Fredy's is an Isla best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Every year when we get to Isla, Fredy's is one of our first stops. This year was even better than the rest which I didnt think was even possible since in the past it has always been amazing. The tortilla soup is the best on the island. This year I tried the Aracharra Bruschetta and it is a new favorite of mine. The Baked Shrimp is also one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten.
Fredy and his family are so genuine and we love the atmosphere at his restaurant. You just know there is heart and soul in everything he makes. We will be back in May for our honeymoon and we will be sure to visit Fredy's many times during the trip. See you soon!
