Booked a table for 5 of us for my dad's 60th Birthday. The food wasn't cheap at around £20 per main, but we were all really happy with the quality. The atmosphere was great and the staff were so helpful and kind. Would definitely go...again!More

I would definitely recommend Francela's. The staff were lovely & went above and beyond. We were celebrating my partners birthday & they brought out shots, icecream with a birthday candle on & wine! The food was great & the restaurant has a great atmosphere. We...had such a great night & will definitely be returning soon!More

Went to Francela first time on the 16/01/2022 with my family, as I have read the recommendations from other customers, and I have to admit that they were right. The food is actully really tasty, especially the lamb (we tried 2 different recipes, both delicious)....Sal and the team were absolutely friendly and dedicated to the customers; always keen to give you the best experience, very friendly and warm. I'll definitely come there again. Recommended.More

Francela is our family’s favorite restaurant in Bury St Edmunds. The staff is exceptionally friendly and personable. The hummus and char grilled lamb are the best I’ve ever had! Highly recommend for a date night or for the whole family. Save room for desserts; they’re...phenomenal!More
