“A decent Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We decided to stop in the landing for a quick dinner on our last night in Franz Josef. We ordered starters, beers, sodas, soups, salads and a lamb dish that came on some sort of puff pastry with vegetables. The food came out quick and the service was good. It wasn't anything special but it was a nice meal and we both left relatively full.

“Chain restaurant food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Nice location, good service but what a tourist trap! Since it was a holiday weekend, there was also a 20% upcharge and mandatory tip. Food was good, not great, but way too much money for what you got. Other restaurant we ate at was much better.

“Very welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended to us by the staff at the place we stayed, and for good reason. The service here was very friendly, the food was great the whole place just had a great atmosphere. If I had had more time I would have loved to stay here and have a few beers.

Great place for a dinner and watch the rugby.Above average pub food with my wife ordering the winning venison dish. Meals here are well worth the prices charged.
