The upstairs bar was where we spent our 2 evenings in FJ. Great live music one night (easy on the ears) and karaoke the next (not so easy on the ears). Cheap, tasty beer served in steins and very friendly bartenders! Highly recommended for your night out in Franz.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here while visiting the glaciers. We enjoyed everything from our appetizer to our desserts. I had the lamb shanks which were mouth watering and my husband enjoyed the beef with horseradish mashed potatoes (delicious!). Dessert was a highlight and so nicely presented we had to take photos. The atmosphere downstairs was nice and the staff were wonderful. Very attentative and friendly but also very professional which I think is important.

I can only rate the pizza we ordered to take back to our motel, and it wasn’t good at all. The locals touted the virtues of the pizza, but something made it way too salty, possibly the chees they used. We ordered a large pizza and planned to take the leftovers with us for lunch, but we threw almost all of it away.

The quality of the meals was very good. The wine that we had chosen was not ok. Although the waiter did not agree with us about the bad taste we could choose another wine at no extra costs. It is a luxury restaurant and so a paper and not linen napkin does fit in this picture.
