Great service, AMAZING food! We chose Franc’s because it catered to the vegans and dairy-free people in our household in a really inclusive way, which is hard to find. So thank you!

Had dinner there with my family and my sister’s family. There was 10 of us, 5 of which are teenagers. We ordered x2 Franc’s Platter plus extra chicken wings. Just sad that you don’t serve plain rice or at least coconut rice on its own. Anyway, aside from that everyone’s happy and contented. We’ll come back definitely.

Held our social club here on Friday and had such an awesome time. Food was great, the espresso martinis were amazing. Staff were friendly and service was quick. (Loved the chicken wings!) Thanks!

Great venue with beautiful views, staff were very accommodating and helpful. Apparently (my meal was delicious) the cheeseburgers fell below expectations. Would definitely return.

We were a table of four and felt a wee bit cramped with seating (had a couple of larger people behind us), the table itself was spacious though. Excellent meal and service.

We had Molly as our waitress and although she was getting a lot of slack about the wait for food she was friendly, efficient and apologetic when the food was later than expected. Perhaps though instead of just telling us the wait time we could have known earlier it was due to the broken fryer so we knew the reason and didn’t speculate

Had a lovely time, great food - really tasty! Only downside was we ordered two biltong bloody marys - which arrived without the biltong - when we questioned this our server said you’d run out of biltong the day before. We were then charged full price which was a bit disappointing. Nevertheless lovely food thank you ;)

Hi there, thanks heaps for your feedback, we really appreciate it. I'm disappointed to hear there was confusion with your drink order. Usually, when we run out of Biltong, we use bacon as a garnish. This is what should have happened, I'm really sorry that it didn't. I will be passing this on to the appropriate team to action. Glad you enjoyed the food and we do hope to see you back again soon. Cheers

We had a lovely lunch, and I’m sorry one of my friends had a small turn. Your staff was extremely helpful in making her comfortable. Most of my friends were from across the bridge,and were suitable impressed!! Our waitress was also very good. Many thanks, Sue Smith.
