After reading all the hype about Frank we were really looking forward to our meal on a recent visit to Hobart. We were very disappointed. The meals were overpriced, small in size and the hanger steak was incredibly tough. We are not new to eating...More

Good location on Franklin Wharf. Great vibe. Friendly, international wait staff. 2-3 plates are plenty for 2 people to share; even the 'small' plates are a good size. Everything was delicious, especially the beef mole, the fish & veggies, and the pumpkin salad.

Service & food was great but the overall night was spoilt by the fact there was no cooling what so ever. It was more pleasant outside than inside so we left as soon as our main meal was finished & went for dessert somewhere else.

Enjoyed dinner here with my husband. We were staying nearby and it had been recommended. We enjoyed the half chicken, scotch fillet and side salads. Wine selection also good. Food is fresh and you can share or order individually. Staff were great. Will return

If you love high end steak cuts and you are paying with a corporate credit card then maybe Frank is for you. Otherwise the good service, waterfront location and decent veg dishes just aren't enough to warrant the biiiiig bill at the end.
