Ate here on our second night and crept in at end of Happy Hour. Was just starting to be busy. Lots of staff and we were served quickly. The food was ok and were good portion size. There was a real mixture of nationalities and the staff were very competent and gave good service. We were given a 10% discount... More

The food was good and plenty of it. If you are slightly out of the immediate vacinity they don't mind giving you lift too and from this establishment. Service seemed a bit erratic, plenty of young inexperienced waiting staff and runners but most of them didn't seem to know what they were doing. I guess they don't stay long as... More

We had walked to Fox Glacier and were looking forward to a relaxed drink and meal. Great atmosphere, friendly welcoming staff and a great menu (reasonably priced). Wonderful way to spend our last night in Franz Josef

Food was good. Atmosphere excellent, great music playing in background. Friendly waitress. There was a mix up with my husband given the wrong meal but that was quickly fixed. There was also a problem with the manager not accepting 10% discount vouchers that were given to us by our motel (next door). That was embarrassing and awkward for us. Needs... More

Food was good and service was prompt. Sitting outside you can can enjoy a lovely view of the mountains. The children's menu went beyond the usual chicken nugget type fare and my daughter enjoyed the venison sausages and the sticky toffee pudding was divine!

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant and the rack of lamb and chicken dinners were some of the best we had during this trip.

I looked at this restaurant before we left the UK. I wanted to try Arancini balls as I had heard of them but never tried them. It was very empty and the service was not good they forgot to put the order through but when we eventually got the food the Arancini balls were absolutely delicious.

We went here last night as it was recommended by our host and we were not disappointed. The staff are all pretty young, most of them on a working travelling holiday and they are all really friendly and nice. The restaurant does have a fairly inefficient service system however with some staff allowed to take orders, others only allowed to... More
