Second visit, due to first experience and not disappointed. A Bar Bistro expectation met. 👍

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

Staff were all very pleasant and the wait time for food was short, which is awesome when you have a hungry baby. Staff were also very helpful in having the table and high chair ready. Would highly recommend this place to friends and family!

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 Sam, thanks so much for leaving us some feedback about your visit. We're glad to hear that we ticked most of the important boxes off. In general, Sundays can be pretty hectic and sometimes the music is something that can be temporarily overlooked but we have passed on your comments to the appropriate team to look into. We hope to have you back again soon. Cheers

Restaurant Response

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. We hope you understand and that we see you back again soon. Cheers

Absolutely loved the popcorn tofu! By far my most favourite meal I have had at Francs. Our waitress Molly was lovely. Everyone at the table enjoyed the food and my 6 year old told me she was in "donut heaven" with her Apple donut dessert. Thanks Francs for having such awesome variety on the menu...you cater to all 😀

Great food and service! The only thing we can really comment on is they got busy at some point anf foegor to get our drinks order after leaving the drink menu with us. But apart from that it was a great experience.
