“Very Nice”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

We went to francescas while stopping over for Valentines day, it has a very nice atmosphere and the staff are welcoming. The food comes in good sized portions and is very tasty. Best of all, the prices are low. We would definately reccomend it to anyone wanting a nice meal out.

“Truly scrumptious”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

After the "scrumptious" evening in December with work colleagues, I just had to return with my daughter, and it was as good as the first visit. The staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for you, faultless. It was a Tuesday night and I was surprised at how busy it was. The food was excellent, very generous portions and well cooked, faultless. We had a lovely meal to celebrate my birthday.

“Very nice and welcoming!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

After reading most of the comments on TA relating to this restaurant, I thought I would put my 2 and 4 pence worth in.

My wife and I have been coming to this place as far back when it was called Chevita's and owned by a different company, abeit from the North East too. In my opinion, the staff cannot bt faulted, efficient, courteous and above all, friendly! So the 'rude' comments proffered by some customers somewhat perplexes me!? I am of the belief that if you treat people the way 'you' would like to be treated, so won't go far wrong!

As for the food, well there can be a slight variation in the way certain dishes are cooked, as the cooking staff obviously changes from shift to shift. But all I can say is that I have not had a bad meal there in the 3 or so years I have been going. In fact, last Tuesday night, we went quite late, as we had been to the cinema first. We probably had the best meal that I can remember...the spag bol was perfect as was my wife's Pollo Sicilia too! I defy anyone to get a meal of this quality plus a garlic pizza and a quality bottle of house wine for circa £25 anywhere else in the area!
