We visited The Landing too many times to mention in our short visit to Franz Josef, it was a great place to sit, relax and watch life go by in beautiful Franz Josef.
The staff were brilliant, very friendly.
They do a cocktail happy hour (which may have prompted my return...), the food was really good, portions are massive and reasonably priced.
Having free wifi for customers was really useful as it seemed to be the only place to catch up with everybody back home while enjoying a cocktail and some sunshine.

Kids food was tough and dry, appeared to have just been reheated in the microwave. However, our meal was better. Lovely staff, quick service. Good central location.

The restaurant is in the happening area, and had quite good food with good portion sizes. The bar had a great collection of cocktails and drinks too. Recommended.

Living in Franz Josef would not be the same without The Landing. This place is awesome. We come here almost everyday and are never let down. All the staff are so nice, cheerful and quick. Food is always spot on what I am after. Drinks are good. Coffees good. Jug night is GREAT! Will talk about this place for years.
