  • Priya Indian Restaurant in Franz Josef: Service zero

    by karamsingh Written Dec 31, 2011

    Could not try the food. Waited 15 minutes approached a staff member but was completely ignored. Approached second staff member same thing, walked out feeling disgusted as the restaurant wasn't even busy. Compared to Little India at Nelson was completely the opposite, excellent food and service, highly recommended.

    Favorite Dish: Couldn't try any dishes

    Full of Beans Cafe: Decent Cafe with varied menu

    by DSwede Updated Sep 22, 2010
    Full of Beans Cafe

    There are not a lot of restaurants in Franz Josef. Some new ones open every year and some don't last long enough to establish themselves.

    I know that Full of Beans has been around a while because my friends had been there a few years before. That being said, it is a no-frills cafe but decent enough to satisfy us.

    There are cold dishes available in the display, such as desserts and some cold sandwiches. However the chalk board menu shows the day's hot menu.

    Favorite Dish: The sandwiches were decent and I particularly liked the fish burger. The food is served to the table relatively quick, but you should order and pay at the counter.

    Alice May: Rustic charm

    by JohanIsWeg Updated Aug 15, 2009

    Stepping into the warm amber embrace of Alice May soon soothes the cold from aching muscles and shivering bones.

    Serving up hearty local country fare, we tucked into the venison stew, slowly cooked in Monteiths black beer and served with mash potato and crisp pastry, which was probably the second best meal we had in NZ.

    The menu takes advantage of seasonal produce but pork ribs with a barbecue sauce is another perennial favourite.

    The wine and beer list is brimful with NZ entries.

    Tasty north indian food and good white wine to toast, we were having Indian food after 10 days, so we were thrilled with this restaurant. Cannot ask for more!

    Favorite Dish: Veg Biriyani was as tasty as the one in Paradise in Hyderabad!

    The Landing: Most popular bar

    Good atmosphere with lots of interesting people. Nice indoor & outdoor area.

    Favorite Dish: Good selection of wines but was not impressed by the cocktails ('Bloody Mary' was more like a plain tomato juice). Garlic bread loaf was so big - was a meal in itself!

    BATSON'S TAVERN: HEARTHY DINER

    by I-Believe-I-Can-Fly Written Sep 10, 2004

    Eating options in town are slim. After we got back from our trip to the glacier, we pampered ourself by soaking our tired body into the hot spa in our hostel's garden, followed by a hearthy meal in Batson's Tavern at the far end of Cron Street.

    While I was enjoying the meal, a guy came across to my table just to asked what the name of dishes I ordered since he would like to make the same order. I was not sure whether the dishes looked that tasty or the way I ate them was too enthusiast. But honestly, they were really tasty! Hmmm... yummy...

    Favorite Dish: Chicken wings with terriyaki sauce, served with potatoes skin.

    "GLACIER CAFE": LUNCH ON "GLACIER CAFE"

    by I-Believe-I-Can-Fly Updated Aug 9, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I called it

    It is advisable to pack light lunch and plenty of water.

    The only time it actually got cold was when we stopped for lunch. We sat down on the glacier, unpacked our lunch and enjoyed it! The sandwich tasted even better on the glacier!

    Favorite Dish: Chocolate bar
    Sandwich
    A bottle of water

    Good selection of NZ wines. Could be cold outside on a cold morning or late evening, but very pleasant in the afternoon or early evening.

    Restaurant at Franz Josef

    There are only a few restaurants in the main road of Franz Josef....the town is so small that a walk from one end to another end of the main road takes less than 10 mins.

    Favorite Dish: Steak.....

    Franz Josef Cafeteria

    Lunch Room, Ice Station Zebra...

    About half way up the hill, it's time to try to find a dry rocky outcrop to sit and have lunch... Facilities are somewhat spartan (BYO food, water, napkins...) but the view is quite nice...
