It is a sad indictment on the UK that people go to places like this and seemingly think the food is good. We were at a netball tournament with my daughter at the nearby leisure centre and didn't have long for lunch so reluctantly tried this place. My wife ordered a (ABC) chicken salad which smelt off and tasted like... More

We have been in this restaurant many times and every visit has been a success. My children love the pizza and pasta from the kids menu and really enjoyed the family atmosphere. All staff are professional and polite. We recommend it at 100%

This was my first visit to frankie and bennys in merthyr and I certainly wasn't dissapointed! It was quite busy but only waited a few minutes for a table. When we sat our server greeted us and offered drinks and they were brought to the table very quickly. We enjoyed starters and mains and all meals were brought to table... More

Waitress wrote down wrong order, chicken was very overcooked which meant it was extremely dry. Pizza came out raw! Would definitely not recommend!

Visited with my children in March 2015 at lunchtime. The restaurant was relatively quiet. The service was excellent - attentive waitresses who asked whether refills of drinks were wanted without being asked. The meal is one of the best we have had at Frankie and Benny's - very fresh and very hot - I had the bruschetta followed by a... More

Attended a friends birthday here on a Saturday night. It wasn't that busy but the staff just did not seem to be coping well at all. The food was nothing special. Service was terrible. Won't be going back.
