A new French restaurant – “Chez Francis” is to be opened in Penarth next week by Francis Dupuy – (formerly of The Gallois and Pier 64).
The restaurant is in Upper Glebe St in the premises which were once The Olive Tree restaurant and latterly a hamburger and juice bar .
Top interior designer Jan Williams of Beti Biggs Ltd has totally stripped-out the premises and is carry out of the finishing touches of a complete refit which will give the restaurant a warm, intimate and distinctly French feel. (Even the brand-new toilets are being finished off with an eye-catching collage of real French road maps.)
Chef Francis Dupuy already has a highly successful “Chez Francis” restaurant on Cowbridge Road in Cardiff. The all-new Penarth restaurant – and its distinctive French cuisine – is aimed at replicating that success on this side of the River Ely whilst expanding the ever-widening range of dining experience available in Penarth.
Chez Francis in Glebe St will be open all day for coffee and patisserie as well as, of course, lunch and dinner. If all goes according to plan it should be ready to open towards the end of next week .
