This was a real culinary surprise The food for each of our large group was immaculately presented and not one of us was disappointed with our selection from the rather extensive menu. We all had various seafood options and each plate looked very appetising. We all had plate envy but there were no losers here. The chef even came out... More

Specials board and the food that we saw come out looked appetising. The quality of all our food was good however the fried whitebait came out cold and... More

This used to be an excellent seafood restaurant. The food now is very average and way, way, way too pricey. Save your pennies and go elsewhere.

Tried this place Saturday night with family and was pleasantly surprised at how good it is for a Keilor road eatery. I had eaten at an upmarket restaurant in the city the week before but this place was sooo much better, I did not leave hungry or feeling ripped off. The food was great and presented well with really nice... More

Went here with friends the owner was just a nuisance interrupting every five minutes and very loud, wait staff are very attentive and the food was good but watch out when they keep asking you if you want another drink ..... $76 for 6 carlton draught is expensive!!!

We were first surpised by the number of diners on a Monday night. The decore is pleasant and the staff very attentive. Our entree's were delicious. We had calamari (the best ever), whitebait and grilled haloumi cheese and for mains gnocchi, franks special chicken and the veal - all superb. Desserts sounded good but not for us this time. Frank's... More

After a long week it was a joy to be greeted by such friendly staff and wonderful service. The jazz singer gave the place a beautiful ambience, and the food was AMAZING! Well done to all the staff at Frank's!

We hadn't been to this restuarant for over 20 years and lets say we should of left it in the past. The service was good but food was average. We eat out every weekend and franks did not live upto our expectations. My seafood pancake was ordinary and the fritto misto was pub quality. The restuarant was very quiet for... More
