Disappointment

With high expectations we visited this restaurant as it was given very good awards at TripAdvisor. These were in no way met and I want my judgement to be a wake-up call for the restaurant to improve. Two tables with in all four persons were taken when we came but we still had to wait 45 minutes... read more

First time we was there some ten years +?ago it was as expected! was again a month ago and was just terrible!!!!!! Stay away, obviously has been taken over by some people from Kasakstan which had no clue about customer service, language but most important the food which was setting me out for eating many days. It's a shame that... More

Quite Possibly. I have eaten here many times over a period of around 20 years and I have never been disappointed. The biggest problem with this restaurant is what to choose from a mouth watering menu. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service, excellently cooked food. Go once, you'll be hooked. A small restaurant so vital that you book.

Excellent food,very friendly service,would have liked to go back again to try some other dishes.Always the same you order and then see what everyone else has got,and feel jealous.Hopefully when we come back will try again.A little more expensive than most,but recommended.

It is a kind of steakhouse, but French. They offer high end dinners and high quality food. Never gone bad the times I have visited the place (30-40 times). Not cheap, but affordable compared to the perfect quality of food and the friendly service.

We have visited this restaurant for many years (20 if being precise !). Francises is truly a hidden gem. The food is delicious and my favourite is the salmon in champagne sauce. You are always made to feel welcome and we always look forward to visiting when in Spain. Highly recommended , it is worth it.

I love this restaurant because the food is so consistent and good. Small and intimate with great friendly service this restaurant I understand is one of the oldest in Torrevieja. The souffle desert is the best I ever tasted and their specialty massive hanging meat skewer is just amazing!

Very good food, good service, little bit out of town, but worth the travel. House wine was good, on the down side i was annoyed with the price they charged for a bottle of water 500ml = E3.50, the food its self was expensive for Spain, but if you want a good meal, you cant go wrong here.
