I go into Francos every now and again and the food is fantastic can't fault it at all! I just feel that the staff attitudes sometimes is shocking half of them have their faces tripping them and the attitude when serving you is horrible made me feel uncomfortable! Make changes with that and would be 100%!

I've had the pleasure of eating here on a number of occasions, and I can honestly say that it does the best cheesecake in Angus, always a favourite with many delicious flavours and the the portion size, wow lets just say just have a coffee and cheesecake as you will be stuffed after that

Food is great and I would have given it a 5 if cheese scones, my favourite, were available! The staff are friendly and efficient.

Very friendly atmosphere & varied menu. The lasagne is very nice & recommended. We go at least once a month. The only downside is that they don't always have available what you want to eat, a couple of times they have ran out of what we'd wanted. Nice place to go for a coffe or bit of lunch!....

Being friends with the Franco's in South Africa for some 20 years, I was looking forward to visiting them in Carnoustie to see their new lease on life. And was I pleasantly surprised.
