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

Excellent food with great service. A must while in Montevideo! Located in a nice and safe area of the town and close to many hotels.

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

It was not our first time in Francis, but this was again a great experience. Even better with Silvana waitress serving us, very friendly and helpful. We ate fish, risotto, pasta and all were excellent. It is worthy. Even for young sons. Don't miss it if you come to Montevideo, but remember to make your reservation before.

I was actually in search of a japanese restaurant serving sushi & sashimi but, it being on a Sunday and the cab driver unaware of the difference between a japanese restaurant and a plastic-sushi-stand-for-kids-in-a-shopping-mall-next-to-Mickey-D's, I landed at Francis quite by accident. Let's be honest about it. But what a nice surprise! The restaurant is set in a quiet residential neighborhood,... More

Very nice restaurant. In spite of being a bit expensive, the food is very special. We can choose the best meat of Montevideo, very well done! Besides meat you can have all kind of choices like pasta or something else. The service is friendly and efficcient.

Coming from restaurant rich Montreal, we found the whole experience wonderful. From our waiter Max, who attended to our every need, to the sommelier whose knowledge and recommendations were right on, we had a meal of a lifetime. The picanha of lamb was to die for, as was the mousse of dolce de leite. Overall great experience --- looking forward... More
