I returned to Francis after some time, and was amazed (in a negative way) due ro the amount of turn over of their staff. Andrea their chief sommelier, has left, and the team of young male waiters are no longer available. My wife ordered a dish based on lamb, that finally arrived over cooked (burnt, in fact). I had my... More

Read the reviews on Tripadvisor and had to go! We arrived at 8.00pm and they did not have our booking. This wasn't a problem and they sat us at a table of our choice. My son had sushi to start and I ordered the chorizo. The sushi was really good but the chorizo was ok. For main course, my son... More

You may be surprise to see a restaurant that serves parillada, pasta and sushi. A hint: overcome this initial surprise, make a reservation and go. It will be worth it. We went to Francis in Punta Carretas: the place is beautiful! We decided for ceviche as entree (good) and a bunch of meat cuts for main course. Very good in... More

Baked potato skins for an appetizer were excellent. Wonderful gnocchi stuffed with Gruyere and mozzarella in a tomato cream bacon sauce.

This is a very beatiful restaurant, with good service and delicious food. My boyfriend and I ate baby beef and asado with vegetables. And we had Zillertal beer. Everything was great. Baby beef was excellent! We paid 1700 pesos (70 dolars). I recommend it.

I had lunch for a business meeting. The service was very good. Some dishes excelente, some very good. No flaws to add to the place but that the average price of the dishes are a bit expensive. The best reason to go is for Business. The place is nice but not romantic nor for a family gathering.

This restaurant was the best I have had in Montevideo so far (this after eating at La Pulperia and La Perdiz). The meal was absolutely delicious and provided a nice escape from the daily parilladas. While you better have a reservation on Friday - Saturday, it is worth taking the time to make sure you are accounted for. While I... More
