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

We had dinner twice at Francis. It has an attractive interior and the service was excellent. The menu has much variety, well beyond the meats that dominate most Uruguayan menus. One evening we tried the smaller of the two chef's menus (a five-course meal with optional wine pairings). The food was generally very good, but not as excellent as one... More

I ate there two nights, the first one taking the 5-course degustation menu, the second a cazuela mariscos dish with rice. Both choices were excellent. Good selection of Tannat, Uruguay's "national" wine.

The restaurant was full of people who are affluent. We had seafood there. Waiting time was a little bit to long. The meals were quite tasty, but not excellent. The prices are very high; about 800 pesos. Mineral water 120 pesos for ½ liter! It does not make sense. For the food I could give 4*, but taking into consideration... More

It is one of the great restaurants in Montevideo. Its menu is a voyage through the local cousine and its interpretation of typical dishes from other places from around the world.

Nice restaurant with a modern sophisticated tough and atmosphere. Grill in the back. Went for fish since I wanted to tast Uruguan white wine. Found Don Pascual Reserve Viognier 2016. Don Pascual is the biggest wine house for fine wines in Uruguay and Francis has a wide choice on their wine list.

The service was not great. It took quite a bit of time to ask for refills of drinks. One had to ask several times. My wife asked for the steak to be prepared medium and it came well done. I was taken aback when they did not let me tell them what tip I would like to pay, but rather... More
