Wait staff were excellent and food was delicious. Loved the atmosphere amongst the vines out the back. Food took a bit long to be served, waited at least an hour. Otherwise great place to eat

Disappointed. What was once a good meal in a lovely setting is now average pub food at best in a building that is in need of some work. Suggest ok for a drink and maybe sharing a pizza. Coffee is still good. Won’t be back again, plenty of other great food options and more reasonable prices.

We asked for the chefs recommendations.... which was salmon & steak. My husband had the steak... very average! I had the salmon. It was very dry... I think it was left in the pass for too long! Even the lemon was dry!

The food was pretty good, we enjoyed our meals.
The down-side for us was that there was a mess up with our order, so we waited for 1.5 hour to have our meals, they even forgot about entree. The manager was very apologetic and gave us free dessert.
I believe this was one off incident. Their food and service were still worth to dine again.

I booked an early sitting for six on a Saturday (5:45pm). After ordering drinks, our meals (simple and largely fast prep) took an hour and fifteen minutes to arrive. We ordered fries and polenta chips as starters and these came with main course. Because of limited guest numbers (COVID) the restaurant wasn't overly busy...we were disappointed at how slow the service was. The bar tenders weren't wearing their face masks properly (beneath their chins or no nose covering). Despite one of our party asking that they covered their nose and mouth when preparing his drinks they didn't. Overall, F&F was lacklustre and not nearly as memorable as I'd have liked my 50th birthday dinner to be. We won't be rushing back.

The overall experience at Hotel Frangos was very poor. From start to finish, problems just kept arising and no one around us seemed to know what they were doing. We were given the wrong menus in the beginning and it took 20 minutes for 2 drinks to come out. When our food finally came out after over an hour of waiting, we were given our mains but the starters were totally forgotten about. When reminding them that we were still waiting for the starters, our pizzas were then taken away from the table and we were left without food for another 10 minutes. After finishing the starters, we were immediately brought our pizzas that were the same ones from 20 minutes prior and they were cold and soggy. Throughout the entire night, our waters were refilled once and the table service was generally poor with no structure whatsoever. To top of the night, items from another table were also accidentally added to our bill. Definitely not the experience that we expected to have.

15% surcharge for a public holiday is outrageous. Food delicious. Waiter interrupted a lot.

Was such a pleasant experience, not being able to enjoy dinner out for so long with COVID was great. Look forward to our next reservation next year. Thank you!

Amazing food, quick service and good atmosphere! Small menu and not great for fussy eaters - but I had the chicken breast and it was 10/10 food! The table also had the Mac and Cheese fried, a pizza and pumpkin gnocchi, all amazing! Meal sizes were filling and satisfactory!

Booked our table on a whim & what a pleasant surprise this was. Service was incredibly prompt & warm, no complaints there. Beef cheeks were to die for & the cocktail selection was very pleasing. Frangos have achieved a delightful balance of a relaxed, warm dining experience that still feels special & a bit fancy.

Have no hesitation in paying for quality food...this was not it. Pizza, only warm with lack of flavour. Salad looked like it was straight from a bag. Tomatoes not ripe and watery. Extremely disappointed.

Covid 19 considered, a limited but pretty good menu, well prepared and presented. The ambience is truly impressive though noise insulation is more acceptable than it is perfect. Waiting staff were great too. Certainly an experience to be repeated.

This was a real let-down after looking forward to going out for so long. The food we had (meatballs followed by salt & pepper squid & chicken parmigiana) was as if it had been frozen since before the restrictions and then defrosted/reheated to serve to us.
I had been next door to Koukla for breakfast last year and that was sensational - I was expecting this to be also, but unfortunately it wasn't the case.
The ambience was nice, however, and the staff were friendly.
