The food was great and the waitresses were very attentive and helpful, however I was very shocked by what I saw in the kitchen! A young cook blowing bubble gum whilst putting food in the microwave and another one pouring himself a beer! I saw this with my own eyes so not nonsense JulieS witnessed! I have not written negative reviews on every place, only two, the other two very positive and based on my visit to Carnoustie so they are based on fact!!!

Hi Amanda,

Our response to your review has not changed since the last review you left about the cafe - prior to it being removed for breaching Tripadvisor Guidelines.

I would like to reiterate Franco's fully complies with all applicable safety and hygiene regulations and the beer you saw being poured was not consumed by any member of staff. The beer is used as a part of the cooking process for our beer batter.

Best Wishes,

Matthew

After seeing the review below I was shocked because ive been a loyal customer of Franco's since it opened last year and not once have i seen anything of a sort. The staff are forever cleaning and I have seen the kitchen myself its spotless. So decided to have a look at Amandas page and not to my suprise has written a negative review for every place she has been to. Please will you make sure you have the facts before writting negative reviews on really good businesses. No need in nonsense

Have been here a couple of times once with a friend and once with the kids. Was great food both times and service was fine. Really nice place to meet up for a coffee and a catch-up.

Great choice of food, great service and reasonably priced. A favourite of mine for weekend breakfasts - carry out or sit-in.
