We came to the St. Francis restaurant while vacationing in the Exumas. We had a boat from Minns from the day and came across the harbor to arrive at St. Afrancis when it was supposed to open for the day. Tbe big sign hanging outside...More
Eat here every time we visit Exuma. Never very busy, but definitely one of the best restaurants for lunch. Tuna wrap is delicious. The wings are perfect. Drinks are good and beer is cold. Such a better option than Chat N Chill when visiting Stocking...More
We took the water taxi from George Town to the St Francis just for lunch. With advice from friends who have stayed there several times, we arrived just as they were opening for service. The setting is beautiful, and the food among the most enjoyable...More
Lunch was one of the best. Tuna wrap is delicious and grouper wrap was too. Service is great. Must visit.
Lunch was fresh and very good. Beautiful location overlooking the bay. The service was good and friendly. It was one of the best lunches we have had in the Exumas and the prices were extremely reasonable.
Our boat captain bought us here instead of chat-n-chill for lunch. The food was good, especially the fish sandwich and burgers. We had good service and a great time! The bugs can be bad, but the waitress brought candles to keep bugs off the food.
Great little lunch spot on Stocking Island. Great views for the deck and good lunch food. You will need a boat to get to.
We stumbled upon St. Frances Restaurant one day after snorkeling the mystery cave on Stocking Island. We were the only people in the restaurant and the chef even came out to make sure we enjoyed our meal... which we did! The view from our table...More
I really enjoyed my lunch here,very tasty, nice friendly helpful staff. Less busy than chat and chill, which was too busy for us anyway. Lovely views all round. Worth a visit or two or more.
We stopped by for a late lunch while spending the day on our rented Boston Whaler. I had read about this spot and noted that it was great for lunch. We had the sweetest bartender/server who gave us tips for other activities during our stay....More
Great lunch spot on Stocking Island. Much better than any thing you can get at Chat n Chill! Don't get me wrong...stop there for a drink but definitely plan on eating here! Tuna wrap with sweet potato fries...delicious. Other couple had the burger and said...More
We ate at Chat N Chills for a few days before we realized this place existed. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, great food, and a beautiful view. When we first walked in we thought the prices might be higher because it looks a little higher end...More
Service was very friendly. The atmosphere was beautiful, very laid back. I will def come back to this place when I return to Exuma.
I was disappointed when I saw the menu but delighted when I tasted it. I tried the tuna which was nicely cooked as well as the wings and fish Caesar. The staff were lovely and the other visitors were really friendly.
Group of 6, we loved the calamari & tuna ! Very good service, setting and very, very clean place. Thanks
This is the #1 value for money restaurant we visited for lunch on our trip. We liked it so much I think we went three times (at that involved swimming across a little channel!) The owners are a lovely South African couple, and the servers...More
It's right next to Chat N Chill, so it's an easy restaurant to miss. Located slightly up on a hill, it serves as the restaurant for a small boutique resort, St. Francis. The restaurant has mainly outside seating overlooking the harbour. Beautiful and a great...More
We had a very good lunch at St Frances during our recent trip. The restaurant is very quiet and offers a vast selection of options for lunch. The staff was very friendly and the view from the patio was amazing.
We stopped here for lunch on our rented boat from Minn's. It was perfect timing as there was a light rain falling and the clouds were dark. By the time we finished lunch, it had cleared up and we were on our way for a...More
I love having lunch here. I think it offers one of the best views of the harbor and the food is always good. I think their burgers and wraps are the best. The staff is always friendly. You have to boat here or get the...More
tripadvisor reviews of the St Francis Resort
The Hotel/ room: The landscape is unreal. There are eight rooms on the island surrounded by tons of greenery. The rooms themselves were clean, had good AC, and comfortable beds. There was not a tv in the room, and I’m not sure about WiFi. The decor was a little dated and there was minimal travel toiletries samples to use. Very minimalistic which we expected. In the morning continental breakfast was brought to our room. Our balcony overlooked the ocean which was 100% the best part.
The amenities: they allow you to borrow their snorkels and kayaks which you totally should. There was a snorkeling cave 5 mins from the hotel where so many colorful fish hung out. We also pattled over to the chat and chill which was a blast. ( I could write an entire separate review how rad this place was!!!)
The beach: literally I’ve never seen anything like it, pictures don’t even do it justice how beautiful it was. There were very few people around so most the time you felt you were on your own private island.
The food: this was a little tricky, because the one restaurant on the island opened about 7 and closed pretty early. Make sure you eat when it’s open or bring snacks ( the rooms have microwaves and mini fridges) and stock up on the water.(!!!!!!) This honestly was my only complaint, but if you go in knowing this isn’t a problem.
The vibe: keep in mind when booking this place, there are only 7 other rooms on the island; if you’re looking for a wild party to meet a lot of new people or rage your face off, don’t come here. We felt it was a PERFECT romantic couples get-away to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It was so mellow, peaceful, and relaxing. Don’t get us wrong though, we enjoyed some drinks with some new friends for sure!
Overall we had the best time. We can’t stop reminiscing about how amazing our stay was and how much fun we had. Thank you George and Jill again for everything we can’t wait to come back!!

Rooms are spacious, there is a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. Air conditioning works well. Rooms have 80s decor but I find it a great way to conserve resources. Enjoy the nature in the harbor, Atlantic and in the beautiful gardens.
