In our eight day stay in Montevideo we ate at Francis three times. There is much to recommend Francis. There is something on the menu for everyone. Food is cooked to order---not precooked. While this is not the least expensive restaurant around, it is very good value and excellent service. To give you one example, when I realized I had... More

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

The service is good, the food is ok, the restaurant a bit outdated but for the prices, everything should be perfect.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.
