Just spent a great few days in the area and we ate here Friday evening, a very warm night and very busy. The staff were flat out, so busy that they forgot to advise the kitchen that we had completed our entrees and were ready for mains?? So after waiting 40 mins we enquired as to how much longer the...

Wow what can I say, some of the best customer service I have ever experienced, from constantly replenishing water carafes, very friendly, helpful staff to beautiful fast meal service. The mountain of Nachos filled up the hubby, (not easily done!!)the chicken, bacon and Brie burger was a hit with my son and the roast pork went down a treat for... More

We had a late night dinner here the Burger was huge and very good. We loved the atmosphere on the patio. It's such a neat little town and the restaurant is in a great location to take in the scenery.

Had a lovely lunch sitting outdoors after our glacier valley walk--good food, reasonable prices and pleasant service. Had the lamb wrap with fresh vegs/salad--looked pretty, too.

It is just a Pub - food was basic pub food with mediocre quality but smaller servings. The seafood chowder consisted of copious amounts of seafood extender and not much else. The sweet & sour pork had a meager amount of pork. Both meals were 'expensive' considering their content. The drinks were good NZ wines and the better part of... More

Surprisingly good value in a tourist region with a captive patronage. Went with the family and everyone was pleased with their meal. The staff were attentive and friendly.

We where asked to choose where we wanted to sit, so we sat outside in the shade. A waiter brought our water and menus to us and then what seemed like ages did someone come and take our order. We eventually got our food and it's a good job it was nice and worth the wait.

After being seated, no service for about 15 mins (not even someone coming to say they'd be right there). When server did arrive, he was rude & rushed. Even though we ordered entrees & mains, food arrived all at once (after we watched servers trying to find tables that food went to), & then food was so-so. Here's a suggestion:... More

After arriving in Franz Josef we checked out the various restaurants and decided to give The Landing a try as it seemed the most popular. We were not disappointed, the food and the service were excellent. I had the roast pork and my partner had the lamb shanks. Both dishes were very tasty and good portions. In fact were wii... More
