The service is good, the food is ok, the restaurant a bit outdated but for the prices, everything should be perfect. That's why I gave it only three stars.

We really enjoyed our evening at Francis. Although it was a Sunday night, people started pouring in from 9pm onwards, most of them clearly locals. The atmosphere was cheerful yet elegant in an understated way. Food was very good, fresh and tasty - from the salmon avocado maki to the grilled provoleta cheese to the salmon fillet. Wine glasses were... More

We had the chiperones(baby squid), calamari, chorizo, potato skins and some wonderful prawns that seem to have been done in chorizo flavored/coloured oil with garlic and parsley. The grilled...

There are not so many good restaurants in Montevideo and Francis is certainly worthwhile to visit. All food we had was well prepared and the atmosphere was very nice.

Just a great meal. Salads perfect. My fish perfect. Wife's paella mixto fabulous. We consistently have great meals here and benefit from the fact my wife's mother lives a 2 minute walk away.

This was perhaps the most high end restaurant I visited in Uruguay. Fine dining without being stuffy it was relaxed and friendly with some fine squid and shrimp starters. I'd recommend the risotto as a main. It was excellent
