The food selection was good and everyone seemed happy with their meals. I had the fish tacos, which were very tasty. The service was a bit slow and we had to chase water for the table, again for dessert menus and again for coffees.

We got the green bowl with vegan sausage amoungst other things. For this dish in particular, it was over $30, which is ridiculous, and the portion was tiny. It also did not have all the ingredients mentioned, and 30% of it was the hefty drizzle of aioli on top. Everything was undersalted. Francs was recommended to me for their vegan menu but we were quite disappointed at the standard of the food. It was my partners birthday and we decided to take a chance, going somewhere we hadn’t been before but we ended up regretting it. Cocktails were amazing however, if we were to return here it would be for these. However the service was a bit strange, at the end of the night after we ordered alcohol we were then asked if we had ID. The overall experience was fine, but I won’t be quick to return.

Really friendly and attentive wait staff and super quick turnaround for food and drinks. Every time I've been here the food, drinks and playlist has been 10/10. Will definitely be back, couldn't rate the service and team working here more highly.

The food was fantastic, atmosphere amazing but the service today was very slow and inattentive. The drinks ordered didn’t arrived until we asked twice where they were. Would have been nice to have had our server with a friendly smile and attitude. But we still enjoyed our meal.

Service not brilliant. Friendly but perhaps the girls were too busy as they were hard to get their attention and they forgot one of our parties food orders. ? Need more staff. Food and drink was excellent

This is far and away the best place in Takapuna to get a beer and some good food with a casual answer. The staff all are super friendly and just love the place

The menu has changed. Missing the delicious Pork Belly dish that used to be on there. Didn't find anything comparable to enjoy. No water brought to table.

First time here and we really enjoyed it. Food was awesome and had something for everyone - including plant based options which I ordered and it was delicious. Service good and a lovely atmosphere with views out to the beach.

Joseph was an amazing waiter and catered to our every need. We never had to wait for him if we wanted something, he was very attentive, but not intrusive.

Visited 3 times in the last month and found the food and atmosphere fantastic but the service is atrocious. All three times there were issues with the orders, mix ups and just poor attitude from the staff. I will not visit again. Thanks

A group of work colleagues enjoyed Lunch at Franc's today. We all chose different options from the Menu and everyone enjoyed the food. The service was great and of course the view is fantastic, looking out over Takapuna Beach. Thanks for a great experience. Sandy Sharp
