Why we love it?

Patron Francis Dupuy made his name in Cardiff’s food scene in the 90s with Le Gallois. He has since setup the mightily successful Pier 64 and his latest venture is an invitation for diners to share his childhood foodie memories at his home, Chez Francis.

The food is unapologetically French with bold, rich flavours dominating the menu. All the classics are present: from escargots, cassoulet, confit de canard and coq au vin to clafoutis and tarte aux citron. Cooking is from the heart and eating here highlights just how classic French dishes should be done – take note Café Rouge. With delightfully friendly service to boot, Chez Francis has established itself as a firm favourite with Cardiffians.

Wriggle Highlights
  • Sitting up at the barrel-tables and enjoying a glass of red
  • The creme caramel - phwoar!
  • The escargots, and a glass of Ricard for the ultimate French experience
