We were staying next to Alice May, so nice and handy. We were there for burger night and the chicken and beef cheek burgers with loads of chips were great. It also came with a complimentary beer/wine. The story behind the restaurant was interesting (if...not a bit tragic) and it was in a wonderful setting. Would go back.More
Nice spot, pretty quiet in level 2. Young waiter was keen but forgot cutlery and took plates away before we were all finished. My fish and chips wasn't great and repeated on me all night. The venison sausage with mash was really good.
Very impressed! Loved the whole experience from start to finish! Excellent service from staff with a sense of humour and stories to tell. Great to read the story of Alice May and the restaurant is a tribute to her. Highly recommend!
Beautiful place to visit. Read the history on this restaurant before I visited and very cool story. Food was amazing and Leslie gave the best service; she was a delight! Must order the seafood chowder, full of flavour and a must try x
Very impressed with this small restaurant on the street behind the main road through Franz Josef. Great food, very friendly service, a good range of beers, and a characterful vintage interior. Good kids menu too.
What a fantastic place! The whole experience was so enjoyable. Food was yummy, service was great. We enjoyed Prawn and Chilli pasta and Falafel and Feta salad for dinner plus a decadent chocolate fudge cake to share for dessert. Housed in a charming cottage Alice...May's is steeped in the history of it's namesake, Alice May. Well worth a visit to learn of the story and experience the era the story was set in. Even the china holds its own reminiscence! Very, very well done!More
