“Sad but true...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Frida's has closed. This is from their facebook page:

"Frida's Taqueria will be closed until further notice. Thank you for your support, see you again soon."

This is an all too frequent occurrence in Stowe, restaurants that become popular have their rent raised and end up relocating or closing. Gracie's has moved twice because of this.

“Nice 'n Fresh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Everything we savored tasted as if it was prepared right before our very eyes, VERY FRESH. The salads crisp, great dressing and color, the guacamole straight and pure, and the tacos and burritos very delicious. The food was a bit over priced for the kind of fare and portion size that was served. The service was less than warm. Nontheless, our family would go back to Frida's on our next visit to Stowe.

“Good food with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We had a nice meal here for lunch. The food was fresh and well served but rather overpriced, (I guess that comes with the territory in Stowe High Street?)

“Frida Flew the Coop!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

I really disliked the fact that Frida's highly-rated (on Tripadvisor) restaurant had gone out of business shortly before we went there for dinner. We had anticipated a tasty Mexican meal, as described by many previous diners, but were hugely disappointed when we found the front door locked on Oct. 17 with no explanation why posted.

It was only the next day, when I read the local newspaper. that we learned of the financial problems between the restauranteur and the landlord that had resulted in the closure.

“Great food and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

What a great restaurant. The setting was wonderful and the food was out of this world. This restaurant is in town, casual dress, and close to the bike path.
