first time we went was just ok, returned with a larger group and was more than happy on our second visit, the lamb chops were excellent, parents loved the steaks and kids enjoyed the pizza, heard other friends say they also enjoyed their nights at frankies

We were lured into this restaurant by its singing wait staff (who turned out not to be wait staff, but singers who had been flown in from the Netherlands). We ordered entrees of lasagne and penne pasta. My husband's lasagne was almost inedible - it seemed that it had been defrosted as the meat in the middle was like cardboard... More

It's a lovely place, some light piano music made it a pleasant place to be, but there weren't a lot of other diners, so the vibe was a little tinny. Food wasn't quite up to scratch either. Not unpleasant, but I expected a bit more of an impact given that it's a pricey enough place to go. Overall, it was... More

My family and I attended Frankies during a recent holiday to Abu Dhabi. If I'm honest, I was expecting a pretentious restaurant with obscene prices due to the establishment being owned by a celebrity chef and famous sports person. Gladly, I was very wrong. . . The bar area is a comfortable waiting area upon arrival should your table not... More
