We arrived in Franz Josef on Christmas night after an 8 hour drive! The Landings was one of the only two restaurants open in town. They were hopping busy, but we got seated very quickly. Even on a super busy night, they were able to accommodate our veggie dietary needs. However, because it was a holiday, they automatically added a... More

From the moment we walked in we were quickly greeted and attended to by a friendly member of staff. Plenty to choose from on the menu and food was delivered quickly and presentation of the food was well considered. The food was pretty on point for he price. Friendly, warm atmosphere with a desire to spread the good word of... More

We went here to watch football and have a drink. We ordered food but didn't love either of our meals (meat pie and a quiche) . The pizza looked much better. They have free wifi and the service was good.

This is one of the more popular restaurants in Franz Josef and is always flocked with people from dawn to dusk. They have a beautiful seating area where you can enjoy the view of the city and the glaciers in the background with some very good customer service. The only thing is I did not like any of the items... More

Had a hearty bowl of seafood chowder and mussels here after a slightly chilly walk up to the glacier. It hit the spot! Not real complaints, though some things did seem very expensive on the menu.

We went here a couple of times whilst in Franz Josef - once for lunch and once for a drink and takeaway pizza. The food is reasonable, with decent portion sizes and whilst occasionally the WiFi network decides not to let you on, it's not too bad once you join. They did lash heaps of salad cream on the pizzas... More

Realised our mistake as soon as we took a sip of the acidic wine, and glanced around to see staff wearing the uniforms of the sister establishments of King Tiger and Beans to Go. We had already had an awful experience at Beans to Go, and this was the same deal. Untrained staff, food cold in the middle, unpalateable and... More

we arrived in the town at 8pm. I went to check out the business and the Landing was hopping! I saw an other place called the Snake bit which looked nice but the action was at the Landing. We went there the next day for breakfast and the food was great! as well as the service

We went here for lunch on New Years Day as we waited for the crappy weather to pass before our trip to the glacier. The food was all average, however the service was poor at best. The woman who was our server seemed to be clearly annoyed that she had to work that day, and seemed to be short with... More
