We went for an early dinner at The Landing. The waitress was obviously new and had no idea of the menu and seemed totally out of her depth. The venue itself is quite pleasant and the food was just OK but I wouldn't go there again. There are better places to eat in Franz Josef.

My friend and I loved the pasta and the pizza there! It was so good, that we decided to return again the next day, and the next! I especially like the fire that they lit in front of the sofa, it feels so homey even though the place was open.

We went there at 10:00 pm and only after dinner menu was available. We were greeted warmly and our friendly server, took our order. My dad loves all kinds of sauce with the food and when he asked for it, she gave us all possible sauce you will ever find. We had at least 10 different kinds of it. Being... More

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.
