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

Unfortunately we waited 45 minutes for our breakfast and then were served the wrong thing 🥴 when the correct breakfast finally did arrive(an hour after it was ordered) it was clearly a rushed effort. Disappointed really because we were advised to try your place by friends who obviously had a much better experience than us ✌️

The person who took our orders for L&P just changed them to lemonade and brought them out to our table and tried to leave without explanation. When we asked, she simply said that the restaurant doesn't have L&Ps and left again. It's not that we must insist on L&Ps. We paid for those lemonade without fuss because that person was clearly uninterested in resolving this with us. It was the appalling attitude and we are unlikely ever to return or recommend this place to our friends.

Lovely service staff but just needed a few more on. Quite a long wait for mains .. but they warned us. food was good. I’d give 3.5. Pork belly and chicken wings and fries exceptional 👍

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.

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