My wife and I had dinner at Francks and were very pleased indeed, both by the meal and with the restaurant in general. The cooking was varied and excellent and the service struck a good balance between leaving us to enjoy the meal and being quick, friendly and attentive when we needed something. We have dined twice before, under its two previous sets of owners; the last incarnation of this restaurant was very disappointing, with an air of having had the foos delivered by lorry rather than via the chef's skill and imagination. The family which has relaunched the restaurant as Franc's has turned things round completely. The bill was very reasonable for the overall quality of the restaurant and we will certainly become regulars there when re visit the area.

The food was beautifully cooked , the service friendly and the atmosphere just right for a very pleasant celebratory lunch. Between us we had the Salmon, Pork Belly and Chicken Kiev followed by delicious desserts. Would recommend.

Visited here Saturday lunch time ( didn't book) and were really lucky to get the last table. From the minute we walked in we loved it. The staff were very attentive and friendly , the menu was varied ( and they allowed us to change the rice for potatoes), and the wit was just right ( proving everything was freshly cooked). When it arrive the meals looked beautiful and the taste was absolutely delicious. All three of us cleaned our plates and had had a delicious pudding. The price was very reasonable, £52 for a 2 course and two drinks for 3 people (we would gladly have paid more). Unfortunately we're not local but will certainly visit here whenever we're in Frinton. I hope the locals use it so it stays, but also hope it remains as good as it is now.

French Franck (no pun intended) and his charming wife Anne made us feel extremely welcome and the service was excellent. The food was very tasty and the portions generous; the desserts (except the ice cream) were home made and delicious, especially the apple cake with toffee sauce.
Prices are very reasonable and we cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.

This was previously The Bay Tree and new owners are the french chef and his wife who covers the front of the house.
Food is excellent and very friendly atmosphere.
Prices are reasonable.
Would recommend chicken kiev in particular with the tasty shepherd's pie and mixed vegetav=ble a close second.
