Eating here is ok i guess, but don't order the big L cheeseburger, it's terrible. The beef is alike a thick sole of a shoe, and the fries sort of touched a frying pan but never really did. Order something else.

We are fussy with food, but no complaint for this restaurant. Very large quantity of food and very good taste!

Recommend The Landing. Has a good atmosphere. Great for family dining. Good Pizzas.. Menu has a huge selection. Breakfasts are good too. Service is really good, always lots of staff. If travelling thru winter, Monday nights are a quiz night - good experience! Really good seating outside with patio heaters. Would recommend.

Of all the restaurants we visited in New Zealand, this was the menu with the greatest variety. While incredibly courteous, the waitstaff appeared to be guest workers that were there for the start of the season and were unfamiliar with the menu. Despite the variety the food was average at best.

Really terrible owners. The fish we ordered was a joke - more an omelette with some shred of fish thrown in which you couldn't even taste. The owner kept arguing and plain rude. 35 dollars for an omelette in a run down bar. Totally not worth it.

Had a long day, so ordered from the menu as takeaway - a meal + a small pizza. Phone service was great, service when pick up also excellent. Both the meal & the pizza were very enjoyable. Would definitely eat there again.

The best thing about the Landing is that it is on the corner of the main road opposite where the helicopter pads are situated. It is interesting to watch the faces of those on their way to the choppers - mixture of anticipation and a little apprehension for some - and on the way back with "wow" written all over... More

We have eaten here twice and liked the food and service. This restaurant seems very popular in town and with the atrocious weather we experienced the outdoor heating was very effective and welcome. If you do not want gravy on your chicken and chips then please let them know when ordering!

nice restaurant with good ambience. garlic bread was great. but lamb shank a bit overcooked. waiters are nice and friendly. However, it's a bit surprise for 20% surcharge on the bill on Dec 1 (they claim it's nz public holiday, which we were unaware of and weren't told when we're seated).
