Alice May

Modern NZ in Franz Josef Glacier

Piling on the charm with its faux-Tudor decor, Alice May is the classiest restaurant in town. Sure, the menu includes meaty NZ favourites, but they usually come with a gourmet twist, like pork roasted in wine and star anise, brie-topped chicken or rosemary and pumpkin risotto. Try to snag an outdoor or window table for sigh-worthy mountain views.

Happy hour (from 4.30 to 6.30pm) trims the drinks bill.
