Having been here in November with friends, I promised my wife and son I would take them to Ca Fran when we were next in Oliva. Two old friends were staying nearby and also joined us. I'm pleased to say once again both the food and service were fantastic and for the quality of food and wine, great value! We... More

We book for 21.00 arrived with just a handful people in the place, by the time we'd had our first drink and ordered our food the place was full - why, the service was great, the food was outstanding and real value for money - mixed starters, multiple beers, 2 bottles of wine mains, deserts and coffee for 4 -...

We've lived in Oliva for six months now and hadn't heard of Ca Fran before this week. It has a modest frontage in a quiet back street, a few minutes walk from the town centre. We were alerted to it as they were participating in Oliva's 9th annual gastronomic festival, so this review is based on the two special set... More

We love eating at Ca Fran! The tapas last night were so tasty and the service as always, was excellent. Try the tapas of the day as they are always great. We don't speak much Spanish but the staff try really hard to explain the dishes and we are never disappointed. Worth a visit for sure.

We are frequent visitors to Ca Fran but have not eaten there for some time, usually stopping for an evening drink (or two!) in the bar that is below the first floor restaurant. However we popped in on a lunchtime and ended up having lunch in the restaurant having been enticed by some free tasters whilst at the bar. (As... More

Food excellent. Try the set 5 course tapas menus, which includes the amazing squid ink balls! Can get noisy on a busy night. Family orientated, but also good for a special occasion.

Visited Ca Fran for a special occasion during a two week trip to the Orange Blossom coast. Other than a wonderful visit to Valencia, this restaurant was the highlight. Oliva is a small town, with limited restaurant choices (at least in October), Ca Fran would stand out anywhere. During an exploratory (beer and rain related) visit we asked for cava... More
