Where to eat before going to the much talked about Frida Kahlo exhibition

Why everyone's going crazy about this Knightsbridge restaurant this summer

If you haven’t already gone to see the Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up exhibition at the V&A Museum, or you are wanting to go again – then this Knightsbridge restaurant is where you need to be going to first. Offering complimentary tickets to diners, The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel serves up a Mexican-inspired feast, complete with fish tacos and the biggest plate of nachos you will ever see. Other highlights on the menu – which we were lucky enough to enjoy - include the oven baked beef enchiladas with melted cheese, all of which have been added especially to tie in with the theme of the much talked about exhibition, which is running until mid-September.


Fish tacos are a must have on the Mexican-themed menu

The menu also offers plenty of tapas-style starters if you fancy something lighter, including a tasty antipasti platter of grilled vegetables, feta cheese and warm focaccia – the perfect choice during the current London heatwave, as well as a grilled halloumi salad for something light and almost guilt-free.

There is also an expansive cocktail menu

Those wanting something a bit bigger have a choice of dishes from the grill, made right there in front of you, including roasted sea bass, grilled king prawn skewers and lemon and thyme chicken. What’s more, there are plenty of alcoholic beverages to keep with the Mexican theme, from fish bowl sized cocktails to classic margaritas.

Enjoy all this while taking in the garden's floral display in ode of Frida herself, before strolling over to see the exhibition, featuring never-before-seen paintings and photographs throughout her life, extracts from her diary and her clothes.

*Guests receive complimentary tickets if they spend £30 or above per person at The Terrace.
