Review: Frankie & Bennie’s Straiton
Restaurant: Frankie & Bennie’s Straiton
Location: Straiton Retail Park near Edinburgh
Date: Numerous, most recent April 12 2017
This Frankie & Bennie’s chain restaurant is in a good location outside of the city of Edinburgh. It used to be one of only a few choices for a sit down meal in the busy shopping area but more recently some other fast food chains have opened meaning there is much more variety on offer. the restaurant is well kept and organised with friendly staff who are always on the ball and ready to serve or help when you need it.
I have usually found the food to be spectacular quality though there has been a couple of occasions where the same dish has been completely different than the last time I had it. I have experienced a pasta here that was still swimming in the water it had been boiled in which diluted the state and made it taste like eating dishwater. On our last visit we had chicken wings to start, although they were delicious we felt that they were a bit dry and could have had a bit more sauce on the coating.
Typically the food is high quality and I have started to try new things here outside of what I usually have. The food is usually bursting with flavour and it is hard to stop eating even when I am full.
So many different kinds of people eat at Frankie & Bennie’s Straiton. We have come across dates, couples, families, friends and so much more. We have gone here before and after the Fringe festival as a stop-off for food, we have spent birthdays here and much more. You could really come across anyone in Frankie & Bennie’s Straiton.
My favourite part
I love the choices of food. There is always a lot on offer and the menu always leaves me stuck for what to choose because it all sounds so good.
My least favourite part
We were disappointed on our last visit to be able to download vouchers for free food, and to only be told later that they only apply to a certain menu. This had not been stated on any of the marketing materials so it was a real disappointment.
