good burgers, friendly service

We had spent the day outdoors and worked up a good appetite. It was shoulder season and some places were already closing down. We ended up here because it was open and only a short walk from the hotel. The burgers were quite good and beer was cold...a really good start. The initial waitress was... read more

Went here for food after an action packed day. Easy walking distance from my motel (although to be fair everything in FJ was!). Really helpful and friendly staff, checking everything was ok but not being too 'in your face' and the food and wine were both delicious. wifi a bonus for this lone traveller! Lovely place to relax and enjoy... More

There aren't many options in franz josef at the end of April. No matter, the Landings is great. We sat outside on the raised decks. There were plenty of heaters and umbrellas to keep away the chill even though it was a cold and cloudless night. I had the "shanks for memory", two lamb shanks with veggies. It couldn't have...

Franz Josef was a bit quiet on the edge of the tourist season, so it was good to go somewhere that had a little life to it. The menu was interesting and the food good, with friendly service and good drinks.

We arrived into Franz Joseph Glacier around 7pm without knowing anything about the town we found this place walking distance from our motel. Had a good variety of meals at reasonable prices we sat outside although it was quite a cool evening we were kept warm with the outdoor heaters. Food we had was fantastic and service was also fantastic.... More

We selected the Landing from a menu in our hotel room because it had a huge selection. It did not disappoint! I loved my lamb, my husband's sausages were also excellent while our ten year old enjoyed his hotdogs and icecream sundae. As a bonus the rugby league was on the TV. The atmosphere was great and I would have... More

Who would have guessed that this Speights Bar on the West Coast was so great. I had the Surf nd Turf and it was the best steak I have had in NZ. The music was not oppressive as it tends to be in so many place. The service was snappy and everyone was fun to interact with. I will definitetly... More

We visited the landing for breakfast and dinner and had great meals on both occasions. There is loads of choice for all different dietary requirements and the cost is reasonable.
