The Landing is on a prime location in Fran Josef. Right on the corner with dining tables outside and sofas around a gas log fire! All under lots of shades Very attentive staff who are very friendly. Menu is varied and comprehensive but be warned the portions are huge!! French fries are especially huge and just right for sharing. Good... More

Had lunch with the family. We had the Wrap (chicken) - Good, Veggie Burger - Average and the Open Steak Sandwich which was awful. The French stick bread was covered in the onion gravy that made it a complete sloppy mess. The steak was either starting to turn or the gravy was just that bad. I ate the fries. Give... More

Great food in a great location. Great space to lounge, enjoy a meal and a beer after a morning of adventuring. Food was delicious, staff friendly and reasonably priced for Franz Joseph.

We arrived at the Landing around 4 pm after our Heli hike on Fox Glacier. We were hungry and looking forward to what looked like a busy and good restaurant. Despite half priced beer and wine during Happy Hour, the food was pretty ordinary, with not much care in preparation. Overall, our eating experience in Fox and Franz Joseph Glacier... More

The menu is larger than most places we saw in NZ with good quality and generous portions. The service was slow but we weren't in a hurry. Cocktails were a little pricey but they had a decent beer selection.

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
