Excellent location, great service, food, value for money and plenty of seating options. I have been here number of times during the day and evening can't complain. Thank you.

Food was rest but the staff were a bit grumpy and service was very slow - we felt like they were really annoyed that we were there. Also last call at 9.30 was pretty disappointing on a Saturday night when we were out celebrating a birthday!

Reviewed On
Restaurant Response

Hi Vicky. Thanks for sharing some feedback about your visit at Franc's. I'm disappointed to hear that the service was not up to par with our usual standards and that your birthday celebrations were cut short. On some occasions, going from full menu and to bar snacks menu and making last call for drinks can happen when things get quiet. This is usually around 9pm. However, on weekends we are always open a lot later than 9:30pm. I have spoken to the appropriate team and can ensure that this won't happen again. We do hope to see you back again soon. Cheers

Hi Toni, thanks for dropping by and letting us know how your visit went. Our bar team created the Sneaky Tiki cocktail list based on popularity in the current market and also by paying homage to some of the classics. A Mai Tai is definitely something we are able to make here, but these are the drinks we are spotlighting this month. Hope you'll be in again soon to try some of the other delicious beverages we have on offer. Cheers

My wife and I had the plant eater burgers which were delicious. Vegan aioli would make this 10/10. We also had 2 dairy free hard shakes. My wife had one with rum, but hers was not as cold as mine so we assumed they left out her dairy free ice cream. They took 25 mins to come so just said it was fine as we didn’t want to wait any longer

Hi Karen, thank you for leaving us some feedback about your visit to Franc's and we apologise for the tardy reply. Here at Franc's, we have 2 standard sizes for drinks and due to the amount of little visitors we have and the requests from parents wanting smaller servings of drinks, the kids size reflects this demand.
