If I could rate this with 0 stars I would. We were recommended this bar from a family friend so we presumed it would be good - the view is the only decent thing but you can get this at other restaurants as well -...along with decent service, food and a more reasonable price. We were served by a male waiter to begin with who tried to be friendly but felt fake, we had a weird sense that they were talking behind our backs. Later on my partner paid for the bill and went to the toilet. To my surprise I was made to feel most uncomfortable by the blonde female waitress, who approached our table and started making obscene allegations, in front of the restaurant and other tables which are close by. As we was leaving, and I’d informed my partner what had happened we confronted the waitress who started to retract her accusations, by saying she “misunderstood” and then when pushed further said she “misheard” - a very unpleasant evening altogether, which could have put a spoiler on a good day. You couldn’t pay us to return.More

Excellent location and best place to watch sunset.Food was okay for the high price being paid. Drinks menu had good variety and tastes excellent. Service is little slow but you won’t notice as you will be mostly enjoying the view. They had limited options for...vegetarian.More

We had two pleasant evenings here with a man who knows his wine! Although on the expensive side, the wine was lovely, the view was stunning. Lovely jazz music in the background.

Unfortunately we were very disappointed with our visit. The view was spectacular but unfortunately the service, did not match the expensive prices! The waiter told us the steak was €36 but when the bill came it said €49, when this was questioned he said it...was wrong and should be €42… We also felt like we were being watched by staff during our whole meal, as they would stand very close to the table (close enough to have a conversation) when we were one of only 2 tables of customers. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

Sadly the food did not match the spectacular views. Ceviche wasn’t fresh (served still frozen) and the salmon fillet was over cooked (dry). Service staff were pleasant. Good for a drink but skip the food.

We booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary, we had been in the night before for a drink and asked if they had a table overlooking the sunset for the following evening, they did and we booked the table for 8 o’clock. When we arrived...at 8 o’clock the next night we were told our table was for 7.30 and had been taken, they sat us down in front of a massive parasol which ment we had no view at all, we waited but after 10 minutes we had not even been given a drinks menu so we got up and left after telling them how disappointed we were but this didn’t seem to concern them, shocking service and attitude by the staff will never return.More

I was a little dubious about this restaurant due to the price of the dishes but went anyway on a recommendation of a friend and am really glad I did. The portions were huge and the food was all really well cooked. The standout dish...was the chocolate bomb dessert which was easily the best dessert we had all holiday!More

The food on firs glance looks expensive but the portions are very large so there not as expensive as it seems they are in a very good spot for caldera views and sunset drinks. They let us have one of the best tables in the...house last minute as a walk in the service was greatMore

We ordered the seafood pasta and lamb chops. Both were disappointing and we could not finish half of them. The view and staff were nice. I guess it is more of a drinks place and not dinner.

Loved it, by day it was cool and dark, contrasts great with the white surroundings. Enjoyed a lovely meal and staff were really friendly. Went back in the evening and it has a great view and a lovely atmosphere. Again really friendly staff.

I visited Franco's yesterday. It has an amazing view. What won me over though was the exquisite cocktails. I ordered the Summer Trace. Then I ordered 2 more of it. The bar was great and the bartender was clearly a professional. I'm definitely visiting again.

Franco’s has beautiful views and beautifully plated food and that was about it. There were two servers for our table, one attentive and hospitable, the other…not so much. We started with the chicken curry bao buns, a healthy portion but under seasoned. I had the...frutti de mare (seafood pasta), again underseasoned with overcooked shrimp and topped with cold-ish cheese. The BF had the fish which was over cooked and fried too hard. I would recommend only for cocktails and the view, assuming some of the servers are attentive enough to ask if you’d like another. We took the 5 euro water bottle with us. lol.More

It’s a 3.5 for me, but went for 4 so as not to be overly harsh. Managed to get in without a reservation and got a really nice table too. The views of the sunset are stunning from here. The cocktails were really nice, perfect...for the setting. We had a salad each and the boa buns. Although we enjoyed the salads, the shrimp Caesar needed more shrimp. The boa buns were a let down sadly. They were cold so we had to send them back, I’m not sure how they were warmed but the buns were not soft and fluffy any more. The tofu buns tasted of nothing. I am aware the tofu itself has very little, if not no taste, so it needed something, a sweet glaze maybe. The service was pretty good and the location and cocktails great. One “point” lost for the disappointing boa buns, steer clear from these and I’m sure you’ll enjoy.More

We didn't do that, because there weren't many people there. People used to see it above the bar.
