When it comes to burgers, you really get what you paid for. Both my boyfriend and me struggled with the size of that thing. Very delicious and super-friendly staff!

This place has a great atmosphere and the food was great and plentiful, and reasonable, although for NZ$30 odd for two very small tail end salmon pieces was overpriced. The mussels were awesome, the mains fantastic and the sweets (choccy one and crepe suzette) to die for. A definite to visit when in Franz Josef

We have been here for our dinner. the serving took quite sometime despite lesser number of ppl at that time in the restaurant. Prices are little expensive however, the food is good.

Visited The Landing for dinner, and was blown away! The service was fantastic, all of the staff were very friendly and attentive - never left us wanting. The food was incredibly good, everything cooked to perfection. The sticky date pudding was the best I've had in nz... Almost the best I've ever had. I was slightly worried when t came... More

We visited on a quiet Wednesday night in May. Having been there in previous years we were hoping for a solid Pub Meal and we were not disappointed. There is a good selection of food options, including pizzas. I had the gourmet chicken burger, and my partner had Bangers and Mash. Both were tasty, arrived promptly, and the portions were... More

Visited this hotel twice during our stay in May 2015. Service was fine, food quality average, happy hour for beer and wine good value. We had lamb shanks and bangers and mash. Sounded great on the menu, but the lamb was not as tender as thought and the vegetables on both dishes were only tepid, definitely not hot.

Located on the corner in Franz Josef, this is a wonderful outdoor location for any meal. The food was prepared to a high quality and the bar was fully stocked with the standard fare. It is a bit bright during sunset, but worth sitting there to feel it. They have heaters for the colder days.

Visited for lunch on a very rainy. Very welcoming staff and place. We had the Nachos which were excellent and our waitress from Pwhelli recommended we come back in the evening as we had been complaining about wi-fi reception - great call!, it was superb and allowed us to catch up with family and friends. Tried the burgers for dinner... More
