In our eight day stay in Montevideo we ate at Francis three times. There is much to recommend Francis. There is something on the menu for everyone. Food is cooked to order---not precooked.

Nice restaurant with a modern sophisticated tough and atmosphere. Grill in the back. Went for fish since I wanted to tast Uruguan white wine. Found Don Pascual Reserve Viognier 2016. Don Pascual is the biggest wine house for fine wines in Uruguay and Francis has a wide choice on their wine list.

Difenitely caters for most tastes. From seafood (sushi or not), to parrilla and pastas, everything tasted well, nice sizes. A bit on the expensive side, but not much for what is offered!

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel as being of a higher status than others. May be that defined some expectations, but there were somethings which just weren't right. The staff seemed very unhappy, not a smile between them and I mean all the staff. They had very little patience with language, we can get by in Spanish but... More

The place is very beautiful and there are several dishes on the menu. Wish have gone with more people to prove more, but the ceviche is very good. The waiters were very helpful and friendly
