Very good food

Nice spot in old town where you can eat on a deck over looking the shopping activities on the street below. Had the traditional cheese with honey and sesame seeds as an appetizer then had the untraditional mushroom risotto and salmon. All dishes were excellent.

Had a great meal here. Salmon and sautéed veg. My wife's salad was also delicious. Relaxing atmosphere and music. Go if you are in town.

The service was very slow as there was only one waiter to serve 8 tables. We waited for the meal, the dishes to be cleared and never even received our dessert.

Apparently you can get great views in Paros even when you're not by the water. Sitting on the patio of Franca Scala surrounded by the quite, cute little streets and buildings was lovely. I think sitting inside would have also been nice, with clean decor and live piano music. My friends and I shared the bread with dips and grilled... More

We had dinner at Franca Scala in September during our stay in Parikia. We were staying at Hotel Dina right across the street. We also stayed there 6 years ago, and every evening from our balcony, we looked at the terrace at Franca Scala, and vowed that when we returned, we would have dinner there...and we did! You walk up... More

Excellent meal. I had the rabbit and my husband the chicken with pasta. Large portions and good value for money. A real find.

What can I say, absolutely wonderful restaurant, I can even comment on how beautiful the cutlery was! We saw the restaurant as we were sat outside the 'pirate bar', I looked up and saw a beautiful terrace and noticed a small side entrance up to the restaurant. The restaurant is all white with high ceilings and beautiful art work, the... More

We stumbled upon Franca Scala whilst walking around looking for somewhere to dine in Parikia. It was certainly our lucky day! This is indeed a beautiful restaurant, which overlooks the streets of Parikia and has a great atmosphere. Delicious food and wine combined with friendly and courteous service. Don't miss out on this place!

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
