Couldn't find it, so found another Mexican place while driving around. Checked Yelp later and learned it was reported closed.

We were on a weekend vacation and didn't feel like driving into Montery for dinner, so we used the internet reviews to find Francisco's. We were greeted with chips and salsa and I ordered guacamole to have with the chips. After a couple of minutes I wondered why my guacamole hadn't arrived and then I found out why. They make... More

I've been here a few times and I never have a complaint about the food. I have ate the pasta, salad, and the clam chowder was the best surprise. Good to know that I don't have to drive to Monterey got some good food.

This place is tucked into the corner of a shopping mall near a pharmacy. We almost didn't go in. We we're glad we did. We went early and were the only people in the place. The owner was very friendly and the strange, but good, mix of cuisines means everyone will be happy. The food was top notch and the... More

I had the shrimp and my wife the burrito. Both were prepared perfect and the portions were plentiful. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. And the price was good too!

My husband and I visited this restaurant based on the recommendations on this website. The place was clean, with nice pictures. The waiter was nice and the owner even stopped by our table to check on our liking of the food we ordered. We ordered seafood taco and fish with chips. Both entrees were great. Don't pass up on this... More

This is a must when in the Monterey area. The locals patronize this place because the food is outstanding and Francisco and his wife cater to your every need. Great variety of food and a nice wine list. Make sure to savor all the good food, but also enjoy the hand painted murals on the restaurant's walls.

I've been here several times it's one of my favorites! I almost always get the burger, it's so big I could only finish half at the restaurant and half as a midnight snack .burgers range from $9-12. I've also had the fettucinni alfreado, enclilada, a pasta with veggies etc I enjoyed them all. Oh and they sometimes offer dessert! I... More

We were looking for someplace quick and good, this place was awesome, very casual, food is outstanding! The menu has a variety of Mexican and Italian as well as burgers and burritos. You'd think that with a menu like this it would be something to second guess. Not at all, the Italian dishes we had could be compared to any... More

My son lives in Marina and i come to visit him once or twice a year. For the past several years since he discovered Francisco and his restaurant, we make a pilgrimage to this restaurant because of its good food and the smiling and friendly face of our waiter: Francisco. He alone is worth the trip. Always ready to serve... More
