“Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Had dinner at Alice May for 2 consecutive nights. The food was cooked to perfection. The dishes we ordered were very tasty. We had the lamb shank, pork belly, pasta, steak and fish of the day. The sides complemented the mains very well. Surprisingly good food in this small town.

“Excellent food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Visited Alice May twice during our trip to Franz Josef Glacier town. We had the crispy pork belly, lamb and pasta. The food was delicious: the pasta had a creamy base and was extremely tasty, the pork belly was also good with mashed potatoes as a side and nice sauce that enhances the flavour. The service was commendable although the staff were quite busy at times and we had to wait for a while to be served. Overall, I will definitely recommend this restaurant for good food!

“Top notch cuisine in an unlikely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Alice May is a restaurant serving top notch cuisine that would not be out of place in a big city like Auckland or Wellington. To find it in a small town like Franz Josef Glacier was a pleasant surprise. Food is a gourmet mix of international (i.e. pasta, steak) and local/mountain (i.e. venison). With a really nice alpine decor and friendly staff, this is a great dinner option.
