Breakfast pretty good here

In one of the key locations in Franz Josef so you cannot miss. Food average however if you are in Arusha a a burger is what you are after it is fine. Service good however the noise from the helicopters gets very irritating.

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch. We had the lunch nachos. The plate was large but the contents we found to be quite greasy. The staff seemed to be out of sorts not knowing how to handle things - not sure if they were new or not. I was still sitting and trying to finish my... More

Real brewed coffee in the morning! For this caffeine-dependent New Englander, this is all the reason I need to visit. The breakfast is good too!

Server forgot to put in my order, and when my burger finally came after 25 minutes, it tasted like ground horsemeat. Fries were good.

The bar by itself is not bad, food quite good in fact, but located just too close to the heliport running the flights over the Glacier. I made it so noisy that we rushed to eat and left as soon as possible. I ordered a steak "rare", but obviously it's not the habit as the meat was too thin to... More

The Landing is clearly popular and moderately priced but fuses great service, a strong menu and nice presentation with sub- standard ingredients. As an example, their seafood Gumbo just tasted of cream with a few crab sticks floating around..

We arrived in Franz Josef and it was raining, so basically this was the first place we found to have lunch in. The staff were OK, but it wasn't that good. One of our group ordered the fish and had to send it back. But my burger was very good. Just sort of misses the mark on cleanliness, service and... More

We had lunch and drinks at The Landing both days we were in Franz Josef because we enjoyed it so much and the service was very attentive. We had at least 3 people come over to take our drink orders both days we were there. The weather was beautiful and sunny both days so the patio was always crowded. Friendly... More

We had wonderful food here, try the nachos. Huge meals though so consider sharing. The restaurant was quite squashy inside so in fine weather select an outside table.
