First impression of Fox Glacier coming from Wanaka was wow. Headed into town for food and fuel and wished we could get through without. The non welcome started at the petrol station where the attendant didn't bother stop having a chat with her girlfriend whilst I paid my bill without uttering a word in my direction. Rocked into the saloon fanging for a feed. The open was a nice find with period interiors of the region. As the only guests we found it interesting listening to the staff meeting occurring at the same time and ordered. Fish burger $18 ok, pasta special $26 really good but avoid the so called Pizza $19. Never heard of chilli and some Parmesan will cost you extra 25% on the price. What is pizza on stale ciabatta anyhow? The town was very dead and lacked character. Couldn't get out of there quick enough. Headed into Franz Josef 30 mins later and what a find. Great vibe and selections of places to eat including gourmet burger bar and eighty eight fusion Asian bar with live music. If you can make it to FJ take the chance.
