The coconut curry was legitimately the best curry I've had in my life. Amazing atmosphere. Fran is hilarious. Food takes a bit long to be prepared, but it's 100% worth the wait. We ate there three nights in a row.

We'd walked by and saw the crowds the night before after a mediocre dinner elsewhere, and promised ourselves to check it out. We got there before Fran even had the grill on, but gave our orders and sat down to watch. The tables slowly filled...More

Very sympathetic place, limited options on the menu but great food with drinks included. I got the chicken bbq marinated in honey. Simple place, 2 big tables on the beach. Lovely staff.

I was really dissapointed with my supper at Fran's grill. I took a "whole fish". I (and another customers) was waiting for about 45 minutes. During all this time the patronne of this place was advertising very loudly how it will be good and tasty....More

The food (and rum) at Fran's was so good we went back two nights in a row! The food is SO good - you get your protein (seafood or chicken generally) with whatever sauce you choose along with mash potatoes and garlic bread. Then you...More
