Such a beautiful spot to sit in the sun and enjoy fantastic food and drink! The kids absolutely love the polenta chips and homemade lemon ,lime and bitters! Service was fantastic!
Food delicious, nothing left on any of our 5 plates. Beef gnocchi delicious, salmon too. Sliders perfect for children. Service friendly, attentive & prompt. Can’t wait to go back.
Excellent setting, great service and consistently delicious food. Highly recommend to all!
Awesome food as always. Wish we could come more often. Didn’t disappoint at all. Even our 8 year old ate her pasta and some of mine!!
Average food at best the staff seem more interested in chatting than serving then look down their nose atyou when you ask for Service we own a motel and appreciate hard to find decent staff
Had a lovely dinner. Great!
Consistently fabulous food. Can’t recommend highly enough. We eat here every time we visit wanaka, usually more than once so that we can trial all the dishes. Lovely, accomodating, unflappabile staff.
Amazing food and fabulous service
My partners father over from Canada said it's the best service he has received in NZ!
Wow food was absolutely delicious and a great first night of holiday celebration in Wanaka - highly recommend and book in advance to guarantee a table
Our meal was delicious and the service was very friendly and helpful. Lovely atmosphere, will definitely be back.
I would like to see a greater wine selection especially Pinot Noir from the Central Otago region.
Absolutely amazing experience and delicious food. so glad we booked this in advance. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Perfect after our lake cruise. Thank you.
Great food! will defiantly go back!
We came in as a party of 11, and had a lovely time. Reservations staff had mad every effort beforehand to accommodate us all, and the service continued to be absolutely excellent throughout our meal. Food delicious, especially the Napoletana pizza. Great house wine. Loved that the kids menu was still ‘proper food’. Atmosphere was friendly, chatty and you didn’t have to keep worrying about shushing your teens, as there was a good buzz of conversation and enjoyment about the place. I’m so pleased we visited Francesca’s
Francesca’s never disappoints. Seriously delicious, can’t wait to come back. The service is lovely and the atmosphere and how busy it is just shows how popular it is!
A great experience, thank you.
We have been many times, like heaps. The food has and is still excellent. We probably won't dine again for a while. Why you ask. The last three times the service has been less than desirable. So not keen to repeat.
We’ve been dining at Francesca’s ever since it opened and visit every time we’re on holiday in Wanaka (skiing and summer) - what more can I say, we love the food, service and atmosphere and all have remained consistent since opening. Keep it up, we’ll be coming for many more years yet I hope!
