We spent the night in Franz Joseph recently and were advised by our motel manager to go to the Landing. It was just around the corner and was all he said it would be - great food, great service, great surroundings, very warm, big screen to watch the Highlanders play rugby. I had also read a very good review in... More

The porridge was not quite as good as I make at home but the bacon and eggs were very good, the service was fine and the coffee OK, but we went elsewhere for breakfast the next day of our stay at Franz Joseph.

As we had been to Franz Josef Glacier a year earlier, even before my wife and I with our 3 children had arrived in town on this trip in January this year, we knew where we would be eating for dinner! In fact, we spent two nights eating at The Landing Restaurant. Excellent food, very friendly staff in a great... More

Service and food were great! I had the seafood chowder and mulled wine - warmed me up! The rest of my family had burgers and a roast dinner. Would recommend for families. Large serves for reasonable prices.

We had breakfast here and it was terrible. We waited a long time for our pancakes and french toast to come out. The french toast was cold and the pancakes were burnt and cold. Very disappointing and will never eat there again.

Ordered the nachos - it was sloppy, meat tasted funny, corn chips were really soggy and the whole meal was a weird mix of flavours that didnt work well. Hubby had a toasted sandwich - over priced, under delivered. Wouldn't go there again.
