With friends, we had dinner here on one of our nights if Fox Glacier Village. It was busy and crowded, but I was very surprised at the enjoyable meal. I had one of the best fish and chip dinners I have ever enjoyed.

My husband and I ate dinner here after a day of hiking around Franz Josef. The food and wine were wonderful. They had a very large menu to accommodate all appetites. The service was maybe a little slow but we were outside on the nice deck with a heater and the views were beautiful. Very nice spot.

It was raining both days of our second Franz visit and a good time to checkout the eating joints. This place has both open and sheltered seating with heating in the outdoors. We had seafood chowder (excellent), Nachos (mountain sized with lots of cheese and meat) with a glass of Guiness, seated outside. Great ambience and chatting up with people... More

We went there twice. Both nights the food was excellent - a good variety of stuff available. They were training up youngsters for the season and some of them were struggling with the language a bit. They were all trying to be incredibly helpful though so 10/10 for attitude.

After having dinner at The Landing I would have given it a 5/5, however, we went back for breakfast and left disappointed. The food was excellent for dinner and the portions very large. I can strongly recommend the lamb shanks - they were amazing. The service was ok for dinner too, although our waitress's grasp of English was limited she... More

This restaurant has a great location and is serving wonderful foods. Large menu, I had the regular burger with fries and it was tasty. My friend had the guides burger with the works and it tastes as good as it looks.

I had the feeling that someone alone on a table is a problem. Of course people waits for the table but it was not friendly, to have people near you waiting for a table is a pressure I do not like. The food was good and the prices are like everywhere in Franz Joseph too high.

My partner said his eggs benedict was really good. My French toast was average, supermarket bread, dry with minimal bacon :(. Coffee was nice and free WiFi is a plus. the inside fire place help with creating a nice atmosphere.
