“Good food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This lovely place was recommended. It was much better than the more pub styles. Good food prepared fresh. Large desserts and fresh made. So good! I had a ribeye and they were happy to substitute mashed potatoes for the fries. It was cooked perfect. The pizzas others ordered looked delicious.

Reviewed January 18, 2013

we went upstairs to the bar they had music and as it was friday night they had specials on pizza and i also think we got happy hour drinks too.by the end of the night we enjoyed ourselves a bit too much and prob drank more than we should have had.the pizza was amazing we got the special that was on.although we did not use the dining area below i would recomend trying this place for a few drinks and bar food it is cheaper than some of the other bars in franz josef.

“Nice bar, cheap beer, friendly staff”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

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.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

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.
