“It's FRAN-tastic!!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Fran is AWESOME. She has the best $5US BBQ chicken, rice, and plantains on the island. You can either get it to go and pedal your meal home after a long day at The Split or sit at the community picnic table and eat with other travelers. Added bonus: Fran knows everything. Whatever you are trying to plan from dinner to day trips ask Fran!! She is also a karaoke rock star-check her out on Sat night at the karaoke bar.

“I still dream about it”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Ate there twice and AMAZING food! It's just a little shack on the beach which seems so easy to pass by but don't! Cost is about on par with other places around but the food blows everything else out of the water. Definitely get any of the seafood items--I'm not even a huge lobster fan but it was the best I ever had hands down.
Go!

“Mediocre food, expensive”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Everyone else is too nice. This place serves very basic food, medium sized portions for the same price as nicer indoor restaurants. Also took a long time to get our food. Don't be fooled by the free rum punch, it's mostly punch and not very good. We left disappointed and still a little hungry. For $13 US per plate we expected more than 10 tiny shrimp, mashed potatoes and garlic bread (cheap white bread with too much salt, butter and garlic powder). I'd highly recommend looking around for better places.

“Great food!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Fran's was fantastic, as good as any of the sit down restaurants on the island. We had the curry shrimp and BBQ chicken and both were great. The meals came with free rum punch ( although it was pretty weak). And you can go to the store right by Fran's to get a beer and drink with dinner. Totally recommended.

“Yum!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The curried shrimp was the bomb. They throw in a drink and dessert too, but the highlight is definitely the shrimp. I had snapper one night, but definitely liked the shrimp better. There were also amazing pupusas available at a food stand I found.
