We spent two nights at the B&B and had two dinners - two of the best, most thoughtful, creative dinners ever. This is one place where the concept matches the execution. There was nothing there for its own sake - everything was part of one, delicious whole. The staff (for us, mostly Luka) was helpful and attentive. I really cannot... More

We were prepared before we choose to visit this restaurant in the middle of nowhere, but the top quality, friendliness and beautiful setting was a very positive surprise. Don't miss it!

When we paid this morning, we were asked if everything was okay -- and yes, it was. Was it good? Not quite... We had the "I love you" package which involved a nine course meal for 2 and an overnight stay. Long story short, nothing was what we expected. After a long drive in semi-harrowing conditions, we arrived expecting a... More

There's probably not too much more that I can say that hasn't been said. It's an amazing place. If you are in the area and have the chance to try it, do. Ana was there when we visited and the staff is wonderfully friendly, not pretentious at all and very well versed in english.

I have been anticipating this dinner for nine months and surprisingly I was not disappointed. I am not a food snob but I do expect excellent service and this establishment exceeded my expectations. We were not able to book a room so I am only commenting on the meal, if you have the opportunity, this is a must not be... More

Hisa Franko provided a wonderful dinner and dining experience, and it was fun to boot. The entire experience ranks with a handful of meals I have had in the last few decades. The artistry begins in the kitchen but continues through the decoration; seating inside a glassed in outdoor dining area, next to farm fields; beautiful decorations; simple furnishings, but... More

I've never had a better meal any where in the world. Extremely welcoming as they treated is like family until dinner where they honored our presence. I can't say enough, they were absolutely amazing.

We decided to go there after watching chefs table. The restaurant is very well decorated, personnel very kind and explaining every plate in all languages. The food was different, well presented and very tasty. Maybe 9 courses so small are not the best way to really taste and enjoy the food, next time I would go for 5 courses.

You come to Hisa Franko to eat. We stayed the night too - and the room is simple, clean, and perks of jacuzzi bath and patio were lovely. But you come here to eat, and to drink. The 9-course tasting menu is interesting, varied and beautifully prepared. Highlights were mussel with tomato jelly and anchovy toast, sea bass with oyster... More
