We had an outstanding dinner here last night. First the good stuff: the food was very well prepared. Of special note was the carpaccio which was exquisite. Our waiter was very friendly, quite knowledgeable and took very good care of us. I had a halibut dish that was both tasty and tastefully presented. My wife had baked chicken and the melange of flavors was devine. The only “bad” comment is that the place is somewhat loud so it’s a little tough to hold an intimate conversation. All in all very highly recommended.

Francines continues to impress. Small, charming and personable restaurant in Camden. Chef delivers innovative food reflective of seasons and farm and fish availability. Nice wines and cocktails to pair. Book well in advance and come hungry. Portions are on the large size!

This is an unpretentious cafe, bistro. It is on the small side but with a bustling crowd. The food was the highlight, I had the Haddock and it was perfect. The other family members food was all equally as good. This is a restaurant that you should not miss if you are dining in the Camden area.

A few summers ago I stopped by for a drink and had an amazing raspberry daiquiri (a special cocktail) and had been dying to try their food! Finally had the chance this fall and was very impressed by the service, the wine recommendations, and of course the food. We ordered several entrees to share and loved them all! Definitely a spot for a special night out.

Such good food here! I had the best collard greens ever! The bread is made in house and is wonderful. The haddock, roast chicken, as well as the lobster dish were all top notch. The waiter (Logan) was extremely knowledgeable, polite, and patient w/ our questions. The atmosphere is stylish, laid back, bistro. This place is a the real deal.
