“Probably the place place to eat in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Ate here several times during our stay at Fox Glacier because of the friendly staff, good food and good beer. Portions are large, as are most portions in New Zealand, and the quality of the food/ingredients is very high. We can recommend the calamari, whitebait fritters, rump steak and chef's salad - all excellent.

“Nice meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

The meal was very enjoyable, but we did have to wait a bit for our meal as it was a very popular place and busy. Our waiter was very apologetic

“Love their fish and chips - reasonably priced and huge portion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

Love their fish and chip. Huge portion and reasonably priced. Very friendly service. Went back to them for our dinner. Even brought the hokies for my glacier hike as lunch is not provided. Would recommend this cool cool chill out place to those coming to Fox Glacier!
