Great Limo

Awesome to be picked up in a Limo to be taken for dinner. The meal was lovely and we felt like stars. Restaurant is a bit small and nothing flash but the meal made up for it. Lady at counter was a bit rude as well, but driver was great

Pizza deal on every friday. Ordered small Hawaiian pizza with only $10. A lot of ingredients which is mouthful, but just a bit salty.

We visited here one cold night in Franz Josef and it was very quiet but the place looked nice and was well presented so we decided to try it out. We ordered two pizzas and some local beers (which weren't available but we did get some other NZ beers) which were freshly made and tasted great. As time went on... More

Free hummer, door to door service from 5kms out of town. Well presented food, top class. Excellent waitress/ bar service. Would not hesitate in recommending to anyone. We had beef fillets, gourmet pizza, mussels, sticky pudding and garlic bread. Steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare and medium - a lot of places cannot get it right but this chef... More

Food came out quickly and tasted good. I had the beef lasagne and my husband had the gnocchi with a side of fries to share. Good pub food with generous sizes. Would recommend if staying in Franz Josef.

We didnt have overly high expectations as the inside of the blue ice cafe doesn't present itself like it would have really good food but boy we were wrong. Our pizza totally tasted home made and was one of the best we've had in ages. Would definitely recommend it to others. Not sure about the rest of the menu as... More
