We took our two small children here for dinner, on a very busy easter weekend! Kids meals came out first, which was great, followed by some of the most amazingly presented kids desserts I've ever seen! Meals were all delicious, and of a good size. Service was friendly and fast even though the waitresses were clearly run of their feet... More

Chose this place for an early dinner after a disappointing experience at The Landing the night before. Friendly staff. Good beer recommendations from the bartender. Really good fish and chips and chicken soft tacos.

Every night was entertaining, the bar had different games to engage everyone to have fun (Keep up the good job!!) The drinks are all reasonably priced and they also offer on certain days "all you can eat pizza deal" which included either beer or wine. (worth it) The pizza is delicious!!

We went for dinner and had quick service of freshly cooked food with a very large serving of all our meals. Would recommend the Lamb shanks, fish and chips and Salmon. We asked for slight changes and it was not a problem. All of the staff were very helpful and thank you to Ursula and the hostess ( sorry I... More

My husband and I ordered a pioneer chicken for dinner tonight. Food came out in less then 15 minutes and it was delicious! Large portion size - chicken, roast potatoes and coleslaw. Setting is old and rustic with a great atmosphere. Loved it!!

We went there when they were hosting a pizza party for younger travellers. It was good they hosted them in a separate part of the bar. It was happy hour when we arrived, but the selection was limited, which is a pity because NZ has a lot of quality beer and wine on offer. The food was decend pub-style grub.... More

On our first night in Franz Josef we went out in search of food and stopped here as it was raining and this was the first place we came to. The main clientele seems to be backpackers from the hostel next door, so there was plenty of atmosphere and the place was busy. The food was good, large portions and... More

This was pretty much your average tourist bar and grill. While our overall experience in country has been super friendly service everywhere, this place fell below that mark. The food was your basic pub fare. The outdoor seating was nice, but I could not see a return visit in the cards for us.
