The Landing is the only place we ate in Franz Josef so I can't make any comparisons. The food was average. Not terrible, not great. Atmosphere is fine and staff were fine. If we had stayed in town for a second meal, we would have tried a different restaurant instead of returning.

On entering, the restaurant seemed pleasant with good decor. I ordered grilled fish which ended up being dry and chewy/hard at the ends. I was made uncomfortable when ordering fish after asking about vegetarian options. Not be my preferred restaurant in Franz.

For out of country folk, bring your passports for id if you want to buy alcohol. They wouldn't take our drivers licenses which was incredibly annoying. We only wanted a glass of wine. While our waiter was nice (all four of them), the manager swooped in like a hall and denied our drinks because we didn't have a NZ license... More

Firstly I felt rushed by the staff to order, which is never good. Then, any restaurant that uses 'Chicken Tonight' sauce and passes it off as a satay should not be serving chicken satay. As someone who is mildly obsessed with peanut satay, I was incredibly disappointed....I've had that sauce at home, didn't need it in a restaurant at 10x... More

Yummy food. Huge menu. Great coffee. Great service. No brainer. Breakfast finishes at 11am but there's still a couple of breakfast items on the lunch menu (slept in so didn't make it for 11am). Eggs benedict was delish :)

Great to find a nice, warm place for dinner. Locals hosted a quiz game while we were there which was entertaining and fun. Meals were okay but relatively high-priced. When one of our meals was overdone, the restaurant remade it and redelivered which we really appreciated. Since they were busy it took a long time for them to refill waters... More

Overall a pretty average meal with an above average price. Most of the meals were cold or cool when we received them. The bar setting is good, and tap beers good. Service was quite good for a busy cafe.
