One of the worst service you can have from a restaurant and a racist manager. Food was bad and tasted like can food. Steak was dry and soup was lumpy. All should avoid this place!

Pasta taste worse than a can, pumpkin soup tasteless and lumpy. Pork is hard. Manager went around all the tables checking guests are ok, except my table. Unfortunately the whole restaurant we are the only Asians, and so I can only imagine the manager didn't bother to talk to us is because we are Asian? Horribly unwelcoming!

The four of us each had a different main, different drinks and wine, and we came out of this busy place satisfied and ready to go back. Staff good and the atmosphere was friendly and warm! .... As in temperature ! Pricing was fair for the remoteness of the location .

So this place looked busy and had good reviews. I was excited and happy to spend a bit more for what I thought would be good food. There was not too much atmosphere we were served by at least 4 different people who kept asking if we had ordered and what (I don't actually mind this but it highlights some... More

We had dinner here during our shirt stay in Franz Josef. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was charged with excitement and the food was absolutely amazing. Their lamb portions are just huge and the desert was like a piece of art.

It was busy when we arrived for a drink so it had a great atmosphere. It was nice being able to sit outside with the heaters on, then we sat inside for a meal. The service was excellent and great restaurant. We all had the lamb shanks - weren't the best shanks ever (and found the potato a bit strong... More

Best nachos I have had and a great large portion. Husband had the fish and said it was the best fish he'd had. Nice warm spot to have some time out in too after all the morning activities on offer.

We went there because we had never been to Franz Josef before and it was on the Main Street and looked popular. We went in and what a surprise! Bustling with people and the service was superb, kept our drinks topped up and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. And then there was the food, my partner said that for... More

Nice place on a cold night. We ate inside, but they have an open fire pit outside for cold nights. We didn't order too much, but the pizza was excellent.
