    Great and delicious food. Very attentive and friendly service. Try the fish in almond breading - you'll love it!

    We had a very good overall experience: tasty food and friendly service. Only few tables were occupied. This is understandable in these troubled times and I'm sure they will be busy again when this is over.

    Good food, however there is a lot more that can be prepared as a side dish than boiled/baked potatoes and frozen vegetables. Dessert wasn’t home made. Again, one of the places where only tourists go. Pricey wine list (a bit of a tourists ripoff). Staff was attentive which made the whole experience better.

    Excellent in every way - from the advice from the waiter to the perfectly cooked fish and wonderfully tasty and abundant vegetables.

    More upmarket than anywhere else nearby we experienced. Margaritas then vinho verde - excellent recommendation. The carpaccio and sea bass (fish of the day) were excellent as was the duck breast (huge!). And the linen tablecloths and ambience were great.

    Having read recent reviews we we’re looking forward to a good evening. Franco’s did not disappoint. Very welcoming staff and nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Garlic prawns and octopus starters were delicious followed by the sea bass fish of the day, superb. A very pleasant evening spent in Franco’s. Looking forward to the next time.

    The staff were amazing and Franko was very helpful. The fish of the day was incredible and beautifully cooked. The highlight was the pudding surprise which was a family recipe for over 150 years, can’t describe what it is but it’s worth getting!

    Absolutely fabulous scabbard fish with king prawns washed down with one of the best alvahrino wines experienced. Service was excellent and Franco himself is front of house ensuring that everyone is enjoying his food.
