Good food in a good location. The rum punch is a good addition. Great mash potato and garlic bread with the dishes. Personally would have preferred rice and beans rather than just rice but that's just me. I know everything has to be imported to the island but I think that the vegetarian plate should be cheaper than all the... More

Incredible food, all they had left when we got there late was the jerk chicken but it was the best we've had on the island! Mash and garlic bread were delicious too! Only problem was service was slightly slow but the chicken was cooked to order and totally worth it! Super friendly staff too so all in all a great... More

Is Frans a restaurant? I am not sure - maybe it is, maybe it is the most fantastic pop up food truck, it certainly feels like it could only exist on Caye Caulker - its basically a shack on the beach, Fran gets frfesh lobster and then grills them on a charcoal bbq right on the beach, serving you them...

Delicious food, and we got offered free rum and pineapple drinks while we waited... good location, with the ocean breezes!

We had a very disappointing meal at Fran's Grill. It had been hugely recommended to us prior to the evening , so our expectations were high. We were then left hugely disappointed when the lobster given to us was very small, the 'unlimited rum punch' was given out sparingly and the staff were just so unbelievably rude. When we complained... More

they were so nice first but as soon as you sit down.....the service was super unfriendly (and drunk I think), we had to wait 90minutes for our food and the lobster was tinny! we had to ask so many times for the refill of the "unlimited" rum punch, it got really annoying. at the end we just wanted our cake...

We had visited in October, so this was our 2nd visit to Fran's and she did not disappoint! This was our first night in Caye Caulker in July! We both had a huge lobster with garlic bread and garlic mashed potatoes! It was delicious! Her prices also include rum punch and chocolate cake! 35BZ... for both of us!! The wind... More

The vegetarian option of the day was a vegetable coconut curry with rice, mashed potatoes and garlic bread. The food was incredible (one of the best meals of my whole holiday) but the service was really slow. We ordered in advance and said we'd be back in an hour. When we got back we waited another hour to get our... More

The food is great. It takes some time, but it is worth it. The free unlimited rum punch may have made me like this place a little more. The cake for dessert is just ok, but again, the food is great. Right on Front Street with all outdoor seating.
