Came here for a business dinner - probably the most up market restaurant I went to in Montevideo and the most expensive (but still cheap compared to european prices). Sat upstairs on the mezzanine which was nice as you had a view of the whole restaurant. Staff and service were great - as wAs the food. Large portions meant that... More

The food is superb.The milanesa de carne is to dye for.The soups are indeed very good.The portions are huge.Trust me.One milanesa is more than enough for two persons.The salads are great and worth trying. The service is very attentive as in most Uruguayans restaurants.

I recommend the fish and the meat however is not the best I've ever eaten. The sushi wasn't on my taste but it was still good. The prices are a little big high... More

In a market where gourmet restaurants are not common, this is one of the few. Originally it was a fish restaurant, but now you can taste not only these, but all the local great meats + international "haute cuisine" On the top, very nice ambience and great service. Highly recommended

I have the chance of dining at Francis some time ago, and let me tell you that meals tasted awesome. At the same time, Francis‘ owners were taking care of details, with a friendly touch. It‘s not usual to attend to a fine restaurant while, at the same time, almost feeling at home.
