Frida's Mexican Beach House is a restaurant serving eclectic Mexican fare along with dishes inspired by Central and South American culinary traditions. As the name implies, Frida's is located right next to the Hawaiian beach. This allows diners to listen to the waves roll in as they eat their meals or just sip on a cocktail. Frida's is a tequila bar in addition to a restaurant, as it carries over 40 different tequilas that are ideal for taking as shots or sipping slowly.



Frida's menu features primarily Mexican cuisine, although some Central American flavors and dishes have made their way onto the menu as well. Entreés include items like fresh fish Veracruz, tiger prawn mojo de ajo, grilled Spanish octopus, rib eye mojo de ajo, chile relleno, huevos rancheros, enchiladas, burritos and street tacos. Guests can also order a side of cactus fries with their entrée.

Great food for good times! We have come here with our kids every time on vacation to Maui from Australia. We don’t have great Mexican food in Australia generally speaking so it’s nice to get our Mexican fix satisfied like you can with California Mexican restaurants but instead in a great location over looking the water and sunset!

How dare this establishment sit people (especially customers with a reservation) outside in the blazing sun. Their makeshift roll down quasi shades are flimsy at best, and they don’t even have fans. They know it’s a problem as I observed them rushing on orders and bringing food out in order to make a sale and get the outside customers served and back out the door. Myself and one other from our party became sick / nauseated from the heat with 5 mins of eating. We had to leave, and yes we not only paid in full, but tipped 20% as it is not the server’s fault. We noticed as we were leaving a lady sitting at an adjacent table was sweating profusely and was vocal about eating hot Mexican food while roasting outside. I agree not a good combo. My food came back up as we left. My night was ruined. Save yourself from this ungracious establishment. Plus the food is overrated. We were not impressed.

We visited while on vacation in Maui. The food is good but very overpriced. My family of four just had two taco plates and two enchilada plates and our bill was $96! We didn’t even have drinks! Not a good value at all for Mexican food. The view is great though with being right by the beach!

Absolutely delightful upscale Mexican restaurant. Food is delicious (don’t miss the spare ribs meat as your protein of choice). Beautiful outdoor views as it is right on the beach. Full bar with very interesting specialty cocktails. We stop in here every time we come to Maui, and are never disappointed.

Everything was delicious. They forgot our side of corn but not a big deal. Everyone loved their meals and my 5-yr-Old loved making her own taco. I had the machego crusted quesadilla with carnitas and i ate it until I was stuffed. So delicious!!

Food was great. View was great. Margaritas were great, unfortunately could never get a server to take a second drink order. After we were done with dinner, still waited, then asked if we would like dessert. I inquired with the restaurant & our server if they were not short on servers, they said no. Our server seemed seasoned and knowledgeable, we think that she was just overburdened with the number of tables she was assigned. They should higher additional servers & make their sections smaller. The servers along with the restaurant will make just as much, if not more when patrons are given the opportunity to order more of their great $17 margaritas.

This is one of the best places in Laahaina it is 10 feet from the water. The Aloha Rocca margarita is amazing I am in kind of a rut with ordering the Spanish octopus every time I go, it is the best!!

Another excellent meal at Frida's, one of three adjacent restaurants from the same origin/ownership. Make reservations early for seating along the railing on the porch - you'll be almost at water's edge. Beautiful sunsets are to be expected, and the food is delicious. Excellent service and a fun crowd.
