Description: As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.

Wow, what a lucky find! We've been traveling for almost three weeks in Australia & New Zealand and this is the best meal of the trip! We didn't have wifi to look up a restaurant before deciding to go there, but have since noticed it's ranked #1 in Franz Josef. We know why! It's in a darling little house. The food not only tastes wonderful but it's beautifully plated and the service is extremely friendly and efficient. I never would have expected such quality in little Franz Josef. Well done!!!

Popped in here for an evening meal. Outdoor seating was available and popular, but we opted to eat inside. It was busy and buzzy with a good menu and selection of locally brewed beers and wine. The lamb shank was, as you would expect in New Zealand, excellent and beautifully cooked as were the bangers and mash. Friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably priced. Recommended.

We had a wonderful time here. The meals were very good...the meal took 45 min to arrive...the server was generous with a compted dessert to share. It was not busy when we arrived, and it filled up soon. A busy popular place and I understand why!
