Franc's Bar and Eatery is the laidback local loved by all. It's cool, casual feel makes it a great fit for all and the closest you'll get to Takapuna beach without getting sand on your feet.
Great location with a nice ambiance facing the Takspuna beach reserve however the staff were overworked and both the food and drinks were extremely overpriced in both quality and size.
Was impressed that when asked how our meals were & one of our party was a little disappointed the waffles with the chicken waffles were doughy the item was discounted👍
Excellent experience at our last visit. Great service. Food my was really good. Def be back
Had an awesome dining experience at franks the waiter was awesome and food just as good will definately be back
Waitress "Molly" was very helpful friendly. My husband need to eat gluten free food, she understand menu well also we have many choice gluten free and daily free menu. Just one thing, my families (2 of us) ordered caramel pork belly, they were too sweet. There is salad under sweet sweet pork belly, but all sauce was on salad so there is no escape from this strong sweetness. We were struggle to finish dish. Except this, all good.
First time customers. Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing place. Tried 3 dishes(pork belly, greek salad and pilly steak roll). Every dishes were full of flavours. Definitely come back again.
Very fast and friendly service with a great aesthetic and vibe!
Unfortunately we were really disappointed with today’s service. I booked a table especially for father’s day. We waited over 1 hour 15 min for our meal which is okay as we understood it was a busy day. BUT then mine and my sons meal came and my partner was told after over an hour of waiting that they had run out of waffles and did he want something else? Not happy is an understatement. This was father’s day-his day and he didn’t even get his meal at the time when we got ours. We had to then wait another 15mins for them to make more of the waffle mix so over 1.5 hours of waiting time.Numerous tables were served after this. They took the waffles off the bill but to be honest all 3 of our meals should of been free with such shocking service
Was so pleased to find the process so easy. A great booking system, food fabulous and when paying our discount was already registered so easy for us to pay and leave. Thanks for a great night and a neat place to eat.
Great food and nice and clean restaurant. Service with getting food out was a little slow. I would highly recommend children’s food comes out before the adults next time
A most enjoyable evening; service and food could not be faulted.
Good time, good food and even better staff. The Francs team so cheerful and friendly I always wind up having long conversations with each of them. That's what keeps me returning time and time again - that and the good coffee...! My favourite hangout in Auckland
Great food, great service. Would definitely return again
Loved the s’mores hard shake and Mekong beef! Wish I had space for dessert! Attentive service and food was worth every cent, will be back soon
Thanks Nav and the team for making our function a success!
We had a reservation for a work catch up at Franc's last Friday for about 15 people. We had such a great time & it was so relaxing! This was because everything was made easy & nothing was a problem. Want to create a blue cocktail for the table? No problem: try our suggestions. Few dietary issues? No problem: we'll walk you through the choices. People were arriving at different times and placing orders were staggered. Our serving staff, kept up with the drink and food orders. Everything was so smooth. The attention paid to our table was just right: no hovering, but just when the water jugs got low they'd replace them without being asked. Thanks to the bar staff for the lovely blue cocktails. We appreciated the detail - the Gin one was the winner. Special thanks to Abi for taking such good care of us. She was a hospo ninja that night, making sure all requests were met. Definitely coming back here again
Went for lunch today. Absolutely brilliant customer service. Food was amazing. Will definitely go back!
Thanks for a great night - staff were amazing as was the food, just got cold with the doors open
Molly was amazing. Very helpful & friendly & loved her shirt!
The atmosphere, aesthetic, service, setting was fantastic and I had a great experience. The only thing I would say is that the food is just average. I’d come here again just to grab some drinks and snacks with friends
Poor service and rowdy kids throwing paper planes around the restaurant ruined what could have been a nice meal
Food was very tasty, great options, relaxed atmosphere.
Food and service was bloody brilliant. Will definitely be coming back
