Francis offers a cozy environment with great service and incredible food! The owner clearly goes a long way to maintain the restaurant, putting a great deal of consideration into the ambiance and presentation. This is a great choice for a romantic date or a business meeting. For events, ask about the private room upstairs.

All meals are first class where you can eat, fish, all types of meat, included barbacue. Located in a very nice place of our city, with good security personnel for all customers and where you can leave your car safe. Well decorated and with enough inside space, to stay confortable.

Francis is an amazing experience largely due to its magical interior space (thinking captivating hanging crystal bobbles, faux exposed brick, great use of space) and attentive service. The only drawback was my choice of meal. I ordered the mushroom risotto. Not a recommended dish. Steak is the way to go always in Uruguay. If vegetarian, try another risotto or pasta... More

Best place in Montevideo for a business lunch or a relax dinner with family or friends. Located in one of the most attractive places in the city. Great cooking and excellent service.

Delicious food and excellent attention. It was not pocket friendly, bit it worth it. We started with an entry of cuttlefish with garlic, then we had sushi (it was excellent) and finally dessert, cheescake and "dulce the leche" mousse with almonds. I'm definitely coming back because the menu offers a lot of delicious dishes and I want to try them... More

Was here the last time for an office dinner and ordered a variety from the menu. Positives include good meat, decent selection of wines, attentive service and consistency. Prices are high even for Uruguay but this isn't a place for weeknight takeaways (although they have an express option which too is pricey). It's in a residential neighborhood and parking on... More
