When you arrive in Franz Josef, you soon realise that the town is very small. The landing has a happy hour which is a must while perusing the menu which includes a wide variety of meals and a children's menu, complete with colouring page and pencils. The food is good and full of flavour. The restaurant has an inside and... More

I sat on a comfy sofa sipping wine with a lovely heater to offset the chilly evening while waiting for my friends to arrive. Good, attentive service kept me in wine and water and offers of appetizers. We moved inside for dinner, where we were well looked after. The foods were all good, with generous portions and good quality. The... More

We arrived in Franz Josef on Christmas night after an 8 hour drive! The Landings was one of the only two restaurants open in town. They were hopping busy, but we got seated very quickly. Even on a super busy night, they were able to accommodate our veggie dietary needs. However, because it was a holiday, they automatically added a... More

Plenty to choose from on the menu and food was delivered quickly and presentation of the food was well considered. The food was pretty on point for he price. Friendly, warm atmosphere with a desire to spread the good word of... More

We went here to watch football and have a drink. We ordered food but didn't love either of our meals (meat pie and a quiche) . The pizza looked much better. They have free wifi and the service was good.

This is one of the more popular restaurants in Franz Josef and is always flocked with people from dawn to dusk. They have a beautiful seating area where you can enjoy the view of the city and the glaciers in the background with some very good customer service. The only thing is I did not like any of the items... More

Had a hearty bowl of seafood chowder and mussels here after a slightly chilly walk up to the glacier. It hit the spot! Not real complaints, though some things did seem very expensive on the menu.
