This restaurant has covered all bases - from sushi to steak to Italian. We had the sushi, which can only be rated average (nothing wrong with it, but nothing right either). Some other dishes were tasty so overall this is a solid choice when you're not sure what you're in the mood for and no other restaurants grab your attention. Service was friendly and reasonably attentive. We were here on a Wednesday night and it was busy. It wouldn't be our first choice, but rather something to have in your back pocket when your first choices have been completed.

Nice ambiance and very good service. The food, though, was only average, in my opinion. I has “camarones al ajillo”, which was not as tasty as it should. Then I had the stuffed gnochi, which were too heavy. Had an excellent Tannat wine (RPF). The bill was about 100 USD. In sum, not bad but I would not go back.

Dear Jaimet:
We regret that your experience in Francis has not been entirely satisfactory.
Our staff has the instruction to consult all customers if their dishes are to their liking, to be able to solve at the moment any detail that is not to your liking, and even change the plate.
About our gnocchi, is one of our best sellers, and if it really is not one of the lighter dishes ..........
We hope to give us a new opportunity
Best regards.
Alberto Latarowski
Director

While the restaurant no longer serves sushi nor ceviche and was out of most fish (we were limited to 2), after initially hearing those limitations, I was somewhat skeptical of how our lunch would play out. HOWEVER, if ended up being terrific! Definitely give it a try. It was open off season and that’s another plus.

We spent 3 days in Montevideo in March. Francis is a few blocks from the Sheraton, an easy walk. The reviews were good and we needed a break from beef .

Francis is a charming restaurant with great service and a creative menu. We had the hotel make a reservation, which was a good idea. I enjoyed the paella, my wife had risotto. Both dishes were fabulous. One of the best meals we had in Uruguay.
