We wandered into this restaurant for lunch while in Franz Josef. We ordered beer battered fish and chips and a lamb stew. You could really taste the beer in the batter of the fish and chips and the lamb stew had a nice flavor. My mom also appreciated the gluten free bread that came with the stew out of a few options of bread to order. The food came out quickly after we ordered. There was a fireplace going even in the afternoon but didn't warm too much as one of the doors was open.

We had lunch on the deck the food was lovely & the service very friendly. The town was quiet as it was in the quiet period, but I would love to visit it again in the summer, it would be pumping

We found that most of the restaurants on the West Coast have similar menus. The Landing was no different in this respect however their prices were fair and their service was very good. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Very clean toilets. We ate our brunch outside on the deck and soon realised why the restaurant was named "The Landing" - the helicopter landing pad is just over the road and it was noisy. Great to have free wifi - thank you.

We go in there looking for a place to have a beer or two, because we were planing on having dinner somewhere else. But the service was so great, we stayed for hours!

We had a lot of people looking after us, without being annoying. We had a couple of drinks, and then shared a fried camembert and mussels. Both were delicious!

This was on our top 5, after a 3 week holiday in New Zealand!
