Best food I had in a long time.

Was asked if i was paying for the whole bill when i was eating alone so that was awkward. Would have been happier to have tipped more but no one even asked me how my meal was but yet asked if i wanted to tip?

A great little restaurant near the waterfront. We had lunch on a sunny day and chose the Feast option to sample a variety of their dishes. The food was all very good, of a high standard, and offered some different south American recipes. The Feast is great value, however make sure you are super hungry as we had to take our paella course home as a takeaway because we just couldn't squeeze it in before the sweet churros! The staff was very helpful and knowledgable. The only downside was we chose to sit outside and it got very hot with the clear vinyl blinds shielding from the traffic noise. Also, if you mention it's your birthday you may get a special treat :)n I would definitely recommend Fredericos.

Food was delicious and tasty although a bit pricey for some of the items. Delicious cocktails. The waiter that served us was very attentive and all smiles.

The staff were very welcoming and our waitress was extremely helpful with her suggestions.
She suggested not to over-order at the beginning.
The amount for the four of us to share was perfect and we even had room to share two desserts

Enjoyed the food and the experience, unfortunately some meals of our group came out very late. We were having individual meals rather than share plates. Additional the wrong wine was poured, and not what we ordered and the two of the coffees we ordered were cold

We went to Frederico's for a birthday celebration for Sunday lunch. We ordered the Feast Menu, there were six courses, and every dish was excellent, the paella, the prawns with chilli tomato and tequila and the charred sirloin steak, all fabulous, finishing with Churros dulce de leche. Service was professional and we all will definitely be going back.

Sunday night dinner, outdoor seating, comfortable, great ambience, staff friendly but not very attentive (not altogether a bad thing). Food was excellent but pricy. Good portions and high quality food. We got the feast and left feeling absolutely stuffed!

The gluten free tortillas were pretty yuk. Maybe serve them in foil to keep them from drying, cracking & splitting, didn’t eat them . ($25 fajitas)
$8 extra for guacamole was a bit sneaky....BUT the rest of the food was next level tasty and amazing...def onto something.

Waitress up stairs was working hard and doing her best but could have used a second waitress as I had trouble getting my drink orders in!

The food was amazing and the waitress was very helpful and made my experience a good one

Extensive menu and nice ambiance but the service is quite poor. We had about 5 different waitresses/waiters that didn’t communicate, forgot orders, waited ages for service and had to remind them of drinks, plates and ordered food. The food was nice but it did take away for the experience

We ordered a cocktail and were advised the ingredients weren’t available. So we ordered another and the waitress came back with the same story. This happened again twice more! They were out of most cocktail ingredients on Sunday after a busy Saturday night. We were not happy about that as it was a repeat incident! Otherwise, it was lovely as usual.
