This is a beautifully located restaurant with welcoming staff, a menu with wide options and keenly price selections to suit most budgets. The dishes ordered (starters × 3 & two mains all were delicious and professionally presented. My wife and I are in our 60's and have travelled extensively and would Franca as a "must revisit".

We came here as second choice having not liked the restaurant we originally booked and remembering the name from TripAdvisor. Second choice was by far the best. Situated upstairs at a corner in the shopping area the inside was beautifully decorated and the outside let you look over the rail and people watch as much as you liked. Food was... More

This is a great little restaurant overlooking the busy streets of Paros. Another guest at our restaurant recommended it and it did not disappoint. Location is great and easy to find thanks to little signs along the streets. Decor is simple and pretty. Staff were very friendly - we did not have a reservation so we went early before dinner...

We reached this restaurant because the concierge from our hotel suggested it. We booked a table outside and we ordered one fried feta cheese, one shrimp risotto and a couple of sea breams. All dishes well presented and very good. If you are in Parikia you can have a dinnere here. Pay attention because they do not accept credit card!

read a lot about this restaurant and was prepared for more but in the end thought it was too expensive for what it provided and would not go back. In a neoclassical building in the town with an interesting view of market street. Nice setting and the chairs are very comfortable but the tables are very tightly packed on the... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal beautifully served. We had a mixture of local fish and meat at very reasonable price. The setting is ideal as you are above the lanes and can watch passers by and local life. The table settings are particularly attractive and would appeal in any good quality restaurant.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvsior and we had a great time there. It's a Mediterranean restaurant with only a small variety of dishes, but all of them are delicious. We went there twice in 8 days. Try the steamed mussels, best ever!
