Homely, spotlessly clean, friendly caring staff, beautifully cooked fresh food! Great choice of breakfasts customised to your taste. This is an oasis of a restaurant in Carnoustie. We had Sunday brunch, great choice of food and top ups of hot drinks. Wish I had been able to find room for some of their delicious looking tray bakes and cakes! There... More

Absolutely lovely meal but one particular waitress was absolutely miserable. When we entered and sat down she asked, "are you waiting or what?" in a very aggressive and unenthusiastic manner. She then continued to bring our meal out and place it on the table, say nothing and walk away as quickly as she could. Not a word was uttered from... More

Had coffee and amazing cheesecake there. Staff were friendly and nice. A wee bit expensive, but will be returning to try the meals.

We go to Franco's as often as we can. Last visit was a treat by my daughters for Mother's Day. The High Tea menu was excellent as always, there was something to suit all the family's tastes for the main course and lots of toast, tea and cakes to go with them. On normal visits we are working our way... More

Went for a coffee with a friend but there were no gluten free options for me! Not even a pre-packed biscuit or a bar of chocolate! Staff weren't even apologetic. Very disappointing so won't be back.

It really sounds like we've dropped the ball on this occasion and we're truly sorry. I am really keen to discuss this further with you -... More

I've tried a number of restaurants in town, and I always come back to Franco's. The service is great, the menu caters for all tastes and I cannot get enough of the variety of cakes and desserts! I am happy to recommend Franco's to everyone visiting Carnoustie!

Went in here for lunch on a trip to Carnoustie. They were very busy, we got the last table, mainly school kids and families which was no problem at all. The menu is amazing, so much to choose from. My son had the fish and curly fries and my partner and I had toasties, every thing was amazing. Then my... More

We were visiting Carnoustie today and walked the full length of the main road and got to this lovely, inviting little café. We were seated and given menus and also faced a fridge section full of beautiful cakes and baking. We ordered coffee and tea, and something sweet. Suffice to say everything was delicious. The coffee was delicious filter coffee... More
