Friendly staff great food . We were a group of 8 including 2 kids and the staff was very accommodating in getting our orders correctly, serving tasty and hot food on a cold rainy afternoon. The place has nice warm ambience and we enjoyed our lunch. Thanks

If you like a lot of food and don't mind quality this is the place to go. We just happen to prefer quality over quantity. Should have guessed by the menu really but we had just arrived in Frank Joseph and the ambiance seemed good. The waiting staff were all pleasant and prompt.

Four of us had drinks and ate here on more than one occasion in February 2017. Food, ambiance and drinks all very good - service a little too keen to speed up our visit there.

My wife had the salmon fillet which was very tasty, however, I had the chicken parmigiana which was very ordinary. When the girl asked how our meals were I responded that my chicken was very dry and appeared that it had been cooked more than once (I didn't finish it). Her reply, that's no good and that was it.

We were looking for a straightforward meal and found it here. I had the steak burger which was OK. Very busy and functional. Service was OK and food came reasonably quickly.

We rolled in to Franz Josef around 8 PM and hurried to grab dinner. The landing had ample heat lamps and looked to be your standard gastropub so we thought, sure, why not. What followed was probably the worst meal I've had in 2 years. We had the lamb and the guides burger. The guides burger came with the most... More

We ate there one lunchtime. I had fish and chips. Freshly cooked, well presented and lots of fish. Could not fault the food or the service

We loved the fact that you can get a meal no matter what time of day it is. Great for travellers who are often on a different timeline from regular meal times.

Very crowded and with a lively friendly feel. With people coming and going you know the food is freshly cooked to order. I had a chicken licken and my husband had chicken parmiagani both very tasty and nicely presented, in fact everything I saw coming from the kitchen looked appetising. Great food good value, service with a smile.
