Delicious pizza, great customer service and a cozy environment on a rainy nightmade for an enjoyable Friday night in Franz Josef!

Amazing food and service. It was much flasher than expected with the food all presented like a fine dining restaurant. Portion sizes were good and great value for money. Could not fault the food, service or atmosphere. If that wasn't enough we went on a...public holiday and asked about a surcharge... the response... we don't believe in surcharges, you will pay the normal standard price.More

Walked off the street not knowing how amazing the food was here and we were happily pleased with the outcome. The wait staff were helpful and accommodating proving good advice and service. The food was not only wonderfully varied and delicious but also priced very...reasonably. The pizzas were particularly good value on a Friday and tasty; the mains were superb and Philippino dishes were a treat; and for those who still had space the desserts were amazing. Warmly recommend to anyone and everyone staying or passing through Franz Josef.More

I have just finished one of the most delicious meals I think I have ever eaten tonight. I ordered the stuffed chicken and a blueberry and apple pie for desert. I can’t fault this place. The food was absolutely beautiful, everything was cooked perfectly. The...service was fantastic. The atmosphere amazing. Cocktails were beautiful. Place was clean including the toilets. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening out! I’ve eaten in restaurants with Michelin stars overseas and frankly this was on par if not better. 😍More
