During my 3 days' stay stay in Fox Glacier, I went to this cafe twice for dinner. I loved the steak and my wife enjoyed the combo. The staff was friedly. In view of the good location of this cafe (near the corner of the main road and Cook Flat Road), you may need to wait a little while for... More

We stopped at Cafe Neve to re-energize ourselves! We just hiked Frans Josef and were about to hike Fox, so we needed a bit of pick-me-up. We ordered two lattes and two hot chocolates. They were excellent! The location is right on the main street, so very easy to find.

I don't normally write reviews but felt obliged to share this. My wife and I were looking for a good breakfast spot and Neve Neve appeared from the outside to be suitable with a few customers already being served. We were hoping for a good standard cafe breakfast. What we got was cold mushrooms, reheated hash browns, inedible bacon and... More

Ordered a pizza - thought I couldn't go wrong........but boy was I wrong!! I would have been better off with a frozen pizza from a supermarket....even if I hadn't defrosted it! Appalled. Especially considering the price! Classic example of business exploiting tourists who have limited choices with poor quality and exorbitant prices!! Abandoned tables were littered with unfinished meals. That... More

We went here for breaky after reading the menu and being very impressed with prices and meals. When we arrived for breakfast, the staff were very short with us and the wait for food was nearing an hour!

The waiter was really chatty, which is good that he can spend the time in a relatively busy restaurant keeping the punters happy. The menu is of a medium size with a good verity of choices.

Arrived at Fox Glacier and stopped by at this cafe while waiting for check-in. Didn't think that I need to check trip advisor before hand as just wanted coffee and ice-cream. Ordered coffee, sundae & milkshake. Coffee was somehow horrible. Being a coffee lover, this was one of the rare times that I could not finish the mocha I've ordered.... More

I have to say based on some of the reviews and comments here we initially planned to eat elsewhere but after sitting down on the sunny terrace, opening a couple of beers and seeing other peoples food we fancied staying. Pizza was great in the end, service just fine and we're typically pretty fussy customers. Happy to have eaten here!

We went there for a cup of coffee in the morning. Service was friendly but unbelievable slow. Reason for only one point: One of the waiters was sneezing in his hand, did not was his hand and handled food.
