Fran is a legend

Fran and her staff managed to accommodate our very hungry group of 12 for dinner. The place was busy so there was a little bit of a wait - but the food is all cooked to order so we were expecting this. Included in your dinner price you get two glasses of rum punch (or softdrinks) and a slice of... read more

The prices are great, you get your meal plus two rum drinks and a chocolate piece a cake for approximately $10 usd. It does take a while to receive your meal but it is worth the wait. Try the chicken. Definitely the best I had on the island. The surf and turf is big enough to share with another person.... More

This was the first place we stopped upon arriving in Caye Caulker! We were greeted by Mariom, a bubbly, sweet woman who gave us suggestions on what to order and quickly brought us Beliken's! All of the food was great as was the conversation with Mariom!

The food is ok .. but Fran is a nightmare. She swears in Creole and whacks her kids over the head. . . just uncomfortable, many people leave without finishing. There are many better grills ... keep going look ... for the Kabob man or Alladdin's.

Went to Fran's the very first night on the island sucked in by the seemingly good deal of a main 2 rum drinks and chocolate cake. We were told the fish was plate size and we may have different ideas as to what that actually means. The fish was tiny, the amount of mash was tiny and the 2 pieces... More

Waited like 2 hours for out food. Got the shrimp portion size was so small. I'm still hungry. Other people in my party ordered the fish. Really small portions. Skip this place.

Went to Fran's for dinner because of the "deal" that included a main meal, 2 rum drinks and chocolate cake for desert. Turns out the rum drinks have very little rum in them and the meal was very small. The chocolate cake was ok but overall our visit to Fran's wasn't worth the price ($25Bz each). Go to Wish Willy...

Fran is the best! She is honest, funny, reasonable and cooks a delicious meal. Shrimp chicken or fish, it is all amazing! Including rum punch, three delicious pieces of garlic bread, mashed potatoes, a main dish, and chocolate cake at the end. What a wonderful place to eat beachside bbq!
