Fran called us in, and we had a great dinner. All meals came with a pineapple rum drink. The garlic bread! Oh so good! And three thick slices of its crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside goodness. Curry shrimp with rice was excellent, and the prices were right.

Fran is probably the top saleswoman on the island and knows how to sell you a deal. The thing is it's always the same deal for everyone, $25Belize Dollars and yes you get a free piece of chocolate cake with that! The food is fine but not amazing unlike her competition, Terry who is sometin of a maestro with Jerk... More

The lady is a husler lol, she will sell you on this place and make you believe that it will be amazing. It is ok and feels over-priced for what you get. You get tiny portions and tiny FREE alcoholic drink and tiny cake, in all I ate and went accross the street ten feet away and bought a two... More

Loved fran's grill. Amazing food. Fran is great, she got us all singing. We turned up with 9 girls and she gave us one free meal. We went back twice during our stay.

We went for dinner one night. You have to go reasonably early, I think it kicks off at 6.30pm, otherwise you have to wait a while/won't get a space. The lady who runs it prepares food in a little shack on the beachfront and then barbecues it outside. Guests sit outside on benches and it's a great way to meet... More

Absolutely fantastic dinner, really good value. Delicious chicken with two sides, two rum punches and a slab of chocolate cake for 20 Belize. And Fran was a babe.

Food was very good with a selection of fresh fish, shrimp and chicken. The coconut curry sauce was full of flavor and complimented the shrimp. The chicken was good, but not as spicy as described. Enjoyed the meal and watching Fran work the crowd.

Fran's was recommended by the maintenance man at our hotel. He said its where the locals eat. Great chicken and seafood cooked on the grill on the beach, and then theres the chocolate cake for dessert!! Its run by a friendly woman who makes sure you are well taken care of. Highly recommended..

The food is simply outstanding at Fran's, who greets you and jokes around with the customers. Reasonably priced dinners include two rum punches and dessert too. Each night she offers a few different options: chicken, fish, sauced, toppings. The wait is long but you won't remember once you taste the good.

Love Fran's! My girlfriend and I just loved the picnic outdoorsy eats type of setting, where you could order food on the menu, and it would go straight from sea to grill to table in minutes. I'm truly addicted to their free rum drinks too. Nothing says vacation like a good ol' cup of rum!
