Love the chicken and waffles! My favourite place in Auckland to get that dish (which isn't such a common combination in NZ).

Chicken burger was over cooked and Chill pork bell could have done with some sauce in rice

Had the southern fried chicken waffles... I think your waffles need to be lighter and crispy on outside...they were doughy and heavy, almost as if they’d been made way ahead of time ... fried chicken was great though!

We booked a table at Franc's following our end of year function, and were extremely pleased with this choice. Our drinks order was taken as soon as we were seated, and then we ordered a huge combination of entree's which were served very quickly and were all piping hot. Our desert orders were then taken and were with us moments later. A really great experience for a group of 12 and a very reasonable bill at the end of the night. Thanks heaps!

The most disappointing restaurant experience I have had in years, with the exception of one good waitress the staff were appalling - including rolling eyes when we sent back over cooked fish and sneering from bar and kitchen staff, extremely immature. After coming to Francs heaps in the passed - I WILL NEVER COME HERE AHAIN

busy night with the beach series outside, we ordered entree and it came with main :( service was a chore we never got our plates cleared and had to ask numeerous times for things, no one came to chheck if our meal was ok, and no one came to offer any more dirnks other than when we first sat down. Overall dissappointing but we had a blast as group of friends catching up

Amazing food and everyone who had the steak thought it was done perfectly. Just a shame our 1pm booking was noted down as a 2:45 booking but arrangements were made quickly to sort out a table for us which was good. Tried to hurry up the food though which took 1 1/2 hour to arrive and that was after we had preordered

Wow! What can we say. We decided to try a new restaurant today and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. The hor chicken wings had just enough heat to keep everyone at the table happy and the chicken waffles were amazing. Sucha different dish but it worked. I loved it and we will be back. Thank you guys so much!

Always love coming here. Music tends to be a little loud, however I can't fault anything else! Exciting food, great coffee, fantastic view and last but not least impeccable service. What more could you want?
