First and last visit to Frankie and Benny's for me. Service was slow and disorganised. Pulled pork burger for nearly £13 with a few chips is poor value compared to other places available in GunWharf. The burger meat was nice but the pulled pork was a very small amount and not worth the premium price it added. Ordered drinks twice... More

very poor service, we were rushed, pressured into ordering before we were ready, food wasnt as described, felt it was too much trouble when asked for condiments, pressured again into buying a sweet even tho we already arranged a cake for a birthday surprise, which was brought to the table before the famous frankie and benny birthday song had begun,...

Good brand. Great location in Portsmouth at gun wharf quay. Staff could not have made us more welcome. Had not booked so advised 15 minute wait and at table in less time. Made an error with one calzone order but apologised and rectified. Atmosphere great-lots of Christmas groups but staffing levels right to cope. Fun and value.

Took my son at university for a meal and was wholly disappointed by the standard of food. Service was adequate and the restaurant was busy but the food was a complete let down. I ordered fish, chips and peas. The chips were cold, the fish was dank, flavourless and swimming in grease. I know to expect some grease with Fish... More

I visited this restaurant today with my friends and I have no complaints. We all enjoyed our main meals (bbq chicken wrap, spicy chicken wrap and penne pasta with meatballs). The meal came out quickly and although the portions were very generous we managed to squeeze in the desserts, some chocolate brownies, cream and ice cream which was delicious. The... More

We went here for lunch during half term. The restaurant was incredibly busy and I was worried that the service might be slow - but we were very pleasantly surprised. The waitress was charming - polite and cheerful, The food came quickly and was delicious. There was also plenty of it. Highly recommended for a reasonably priced and generous lunch

Popped in for lunch - two courses for less than a tenner, so pretty good value. Arrived during a busy lunch service and we were told t expect a ten minute wait for a table. We hardly had time to order a drink And we were seated upstairs. Comfortable restaurant, well decorated. Varied lunch menu, all pretty happy with our... More

This was our first visit to the Gunwharf restaurant, and sadly it was a little disappointing. SOME of the staff were helpful and attentive, but others pushed you to order sides and more drinks. I know it's easy to say no, but it's much easier to enjoy your meal when you're not being pestered every 30 seconds - sadly, not... More
