“Great spot Oceanside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Fun spot right on the water, nice owner very friendly. Had the lobster it was cooked better nicely, much better than other much more expensive restaurants on the island. We ate there twice in 3 day trip. Plus byob makes for a great meal a great price.

“AWESOME SHRIMP CURRY, and I LOVE FRAN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Lets start first with her food. You will smell her curry shrimp across the street and I LOVED her curry. Diversity is an issue on this island when it comes to food and she hit the spot. Her shrimp curry with coconut rice was great. You get a free rum punch and an tasty cake for desert for $15 BZ. After you eat the DRY rice and beans that Caye Caulker has to offer (I have yet to have good rice and beans after being her 10 days), you will finally feel like you have eaten good rice and a tasty yummy meal. Fran puts all her love into her dishes and not only will you love her perfectly spiced curry, you will also get a kick out of Fran. She is a very down to earth woman that has a goal of satisfying your belly. I thought it was cool to sit outside on large picnic tables and people watch. Its a perfect atmosphere where you will have good conversation with the visitors of this island. Food is hit or miss on this island and she was for sure one of the better meals I have eaten here. She only accepts cash. I

“Fran's a charmer....but she don't linger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

the food at Fran's was not exceptional...Fran herself is quite a character and given that the food there isn't much better or worse than food anywhere else on the island, I'd venture it a safe bet for a bit of lobster.

“Best food on Island! Fran was great company! Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

You will hear Fran yelling from her Chair if you are ready for dinner. She was a fun and nice character! We had the lobster special, and my husband said it was better then Jolly Rodgers, her's was cooked to perfection! Very nice lady. Apparently she is Jolly Rodgers sister! They kind of look alike, you will see a resemblance. Definitely stop in and see her for dinner!
