Frank's seems to have been around forever, and when our dinner arrangements fell through earlier this year, we ended up falling back on this old favourite. After arriving without a booking on a hot night in early January, the head waiter sorted a table for five of us in the packed restaurant with humour and aplomb. We had beautifully crisp... More

I have been going to Frank's for many years and have never been disappointed. Last week after being away for some months we decided to go to Frank's as we couldnt get into another very well known seafood restuarant. Upon arrival we noticed that Frank's had changed and the menu was different, after some humming and harring we decided to... More

If you like your food loaded with preservatives, then eat here. We had a large group booking for work Christmas party on 16 December 2014 and most of us felt unwell even before the evening wound up, with headaches and nausea, with worse later and chemical hangovers the next day, not from drinking alcohol, as most of us were driving...

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

Out to dinner on a Thursday night to catch up with family. The restaurant quickly filled. The menu was extensive ranging from wood fire pizzas, pastas, risottos, meats and amazing looking seafood. 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.
