Francine Bistro Camden Maine

We are thinking about making reservations here. Has anyone been here recently? We have never been so any info about the menu, prices, wine list, etc. would be great. Thanks!

  1. It was great last summer and fall. Tiny and a bit crowded but worth it. I think we drove to Camden five times last summer from Blue Hill to eat there. Well, maybe once we had other reasons to be in the area. Short menu, maybe four starters and four entrees. I think it was about $75/person including wine.


    1. Apps are in the $6-10 range and entrees in the $18-26 range. They have 4 apps (1 soup- always amazing, and a veggie, seafood, etc.), 1 salad, and 4 entrees every day with quick rotation according to what is best available and in season. The entrees are 1 fish, 1 poultry (chicken or duck), one lamb or pork, and their classic steak frites (the frites are twice cooked in herb scented olive oil)

      The wine list is good, a bit over priced, but good. they also do a daily cocktail special.

      Make sure you make a reservation, you ALWAYS need one even in off season. Dinner will be in the $75+ range if you get wine, a little more with dessert.
      I go every other week and think it is one of the best, if not THE best in the area.
