Popped in for late meal, 8ish, and girl set table promptly just for us. Complimentary canapes nice touch. Food arrived quickly and was delicious . Lamb shank melted in the mouth and garnish equally yummy. Westmoreland pudding also splendid. Rooms quirky and "shabby -chic" in a good way with interesting candleholders, art, books to read etc.Service pleasant and prompt.

In a town with some good restaurants Francine's wasn't up to par unfortunately. The food was nice, but the place was crowded with random decorations and the staff a little forgetful. Good selection of wines however.

Great food and a good choice of dishes. It was quite small and cramped but a nice atmosphere and popular with the locals. I would go back.

Visited Francines tonight with my partner & Mother in Law. We all had pigs cheek to start we all found it really tasty, I am a bit fussy about black pudding but I can honestly say it was the best I have had. Mains were great too, I had duck, my partner had smoke haddock, scallops & chorizo and Mother... More

Lucky enough to have friends who own a flat near the restaurant, we have eaten here several times. Great staff, lovely atmosphere, one of the nicest places to eat in Windermere.

We ate at Francine's one evening a few days ago. The food was good, the staff friendly and attentive. We felt it was good value.

Good restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. I had the fish casserole, which is one of the tastiest dishes I have tasted. The pate with brioche was delicious too. Ohh and not forgetting the sticky toffee pudding~yummy. Nice little touches like canapés. You do need to book as they were turning loads of people away. Give this place a try, it... More

This is again a busy place, booking is a better option as we were squeezed in. We enjoyed our meal here, the food was nice & the ambiance was lovely. We had the set menu, the soup was nice and the main course was lovely too! Would recommend!
