Came here with friends for drinks and I end up ordering a mud cake as well. It was good! Love the place, free pool table and awesome wii! I had great fun playing the wii and its amusing watching others playing it. There's also a pole, If u could climb to the top and kiss top of the pole, u get a free beer.

Great pizzas, friendly staff and plenty of drinks! What's not to love :-) Also has a pool table and Kinect games.

Probably due to its popularity with NZ travelers, the tiny town of Franz Josef is not disappointing when it comes to food choices. This restaurant was recommended by 10 cottages with a special mention that they even have a Hummer Stretch Limo which can be arranged for pick-up to and from the restaurant. To me, this is just a fun novelty but I will go to the restaurant even without this as they have friendly service and good hearty food. We had the salad which was fresh considering how inland we are and it was winter (I do not know if they actually grow it there). Th steak was also perfectly done and the fish as well. We didn't order pizza though, just didnt felt like having on. This is a good dining option while in Franz Josef, preferably after the trip to the ice.

The presentation and flavours were outstanding, good beer and wine list, good value for money and I enjoyed chatting to the waitress who comes from the Phillipines. We enjoyed our visit here and can recommend it, has vegetarian options and great pizzas for young ones, with more sophisticated choices too.

Tried it out on a tip from the hostel receptionist. Was happily surprised with the beautiful dishes and great flavours. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Franz Josef.
