We stopped here for both dinner and breakfast. The food and the service was very good. I had a very tasty vegetable breakfast. Also, the next day, we purchased some meat pies from the cabinet food. They were delicious also.

Walked past a few of the restaurants in town and were drawn to this one because of the menu. We were welcomed by very friendly and cheerful staff who were also more than willing to allow us a sample of the beers so we could choose a one we liked. We found the choices in food very good and weren't disappointed by our choices. To be honest if I was around the next day I would of came back, had a meal to go and taken it on my journey.
Throughout our time there we watched the staff attend to customers straight away and with a smile. Very quick service.

We had just driven 8 hours to get to Franz Josef so we're very pleased to be recommended a restaurant/ brewery where different tastes could be well accommodated. And very speedy service too!

Very warming & welcoming place to escape from some traditional Westcoast weather. Great meals. Only minor disappointment was not being able to get my fave Speights brew but not a show stopper. Easy walking distance to most of the accommodation spots meant you didn't need to worry about risking your license if you wanted to push the boat out slightly.

While we spent three days in FJ and copious amounts of time waiting on weather decisions we had many drinks,snacks and also a dinner here.
Cannot fault them. Wine choices all brilliant,had coffee on arrival in town and they even got the recipe book out to check on GF sponge cake as I'm Coeliac (it was and was delicious)
Had dinner last night and even though it was busy we were seated, orders taken and received very quickly.
Meals were delicious and reasonably priced.
Fantastic little spot and even in a whole town blackout they have a generator and we were able to grab a morning coffee (also excellent!)
