We wanted a quality dinner for 7 in comfortable surroundings and chose Blue Ice based on its menu and reputation. Blue Ice delivered on all fronts . The varied entrees , mains and wines were superb in flavour from the mussels , fish , pork..., stir fry and beef dishes . Excellent presentation and generous , tasty portions meant we would go back tomorrow! If you are in Franz Joseph try this gem - 10 out of 10 from this group !More

This was recommended but we were the only people there. We ate Asian meals, and they were very tasteless and average

Had dinner and crispy pata is like home to me. I would love to go back and have lunch but they are only open during dinner time because of pandemic. Price is not too expensive as well. Would recommend this to my friends.

☑️ Delicious foods - we are a big group (24 persons) so we tried all the Asian foods and all the Pizza they served and we are very satisfied with all the food. ☑️ ambience - the place is tidy and very nice. ☑️ staff...-Very Friendly and accommodating staff. we feel the Filipino Hospitality in this place. They even tour us at the Fox Glacier using their Limousine Car🤩 ☑️ Location -located at the heart of the Franz Josef downtown. We will definitely come back!More

The staff were really friendly and the service was great especially given how busy it was. The food was delicious and tables were thoroughly cleaned between sittings.

Excellent meal in pleasant surroundings. Although we were the only customers on a quiet Sunday evening the waiter made us feel welcome. Agree with other reviewers that the chairs are very comfortable! We had prawn fried rice and chicken fried rice that were excellent flavour...and arrived promptly. Good range of drinks available.More
