“best value-for-money breakfast”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

An excellent breakfast with delicious coffee for under R30 and you will not need lunch! The owners have created the feel of an Italian courtyard hidden away from the hustle and bustle, with some interesting (and cheeky) touches. The service is friendly and efficient.

“Many good times ...”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I have eaten and socialized with friends at Franks on Wharf on a number of occasions. It's usually my first port of call when arriving in Port Alfred. The coffee is great and so are the breakfasts and light meals. I especially adore their poached eggs! Great courtyard atmosphere where one can enjoy a select variety of wines - reasonably priced as well as beers. One can also reminisce with the sounds of well-loved songs from an earlier era. Robin the host needs particular mention as he moves around giving attention and tending to the needs of his patrons. Bravo Robin, keep it up!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Frank's on the Wharf offers a wide selection of food at affordable prices. Everything that I have had on the menu has been of the highest quality. The burgers and steak roll are particularly good. The courtyard is unique and the old-world vibe around the establishment is simply fantastic. The free wi-fi option is also a nice addition. I would recommend this restaurant to both couples and groups of friends.

“Outstanding food in a quaint setting”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

I eat at Frank's on a regular basis, and as far as coffee shops go in Port Alfred this one stands well above the rest. The courtyard has a character of its own and takes one back in time. The atmosphere is lovely with old music played on a record player. The food is delicious, with everything from burgers and breakfasts to pastas and wraps providing extensive variety at a reasonable price. There are a number of health options available, including gluten free meals. The service is always friendly and professional. This is one spot in the Kowie that is well worth visiting... Perhaps over and over again.
