I have just finished one of the most delicious meals I think I have ever eaten tonight. I ordered the stuffed chicken and a blueberry and apple pie for desert. I can’t fault this place. The food was absolutely beautiful, everything was cooked perfectly. The...service was fantastic. The atmosphere amazing. Cocktails were beautiful. Place was clean including the toilets. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening out! I’ve eaten in restaurants with Michelin stars overseas and frankly this was on par if not better. 😍More

Ordered take away pizza from blue ice and it didn't disappoint. The staff were nice, pizza was cooked in a reasonable time and was delicious. Definitely a hidden gem in franz josef.

Enjoyed our meal here. The decor suggests fine dining but we had burger and fries and my hubby had fish and chips. We all really enjoyed our meal and would have eaten here again but we were moving on. It has outdoor and indoor seating....The serving staff were very friendly. A great venue and I would recommendMore

I am not not being over-dramatic when i say this was one of the most amazing dinners out i have had in a long time! I was part of a group of six and all of our meals were fantastic - i honestly couldnt find...any fault with any of them (and yes, i tried them all)! The staff are lovely and clearly they have some excellent chefs. The prices were also very reasonable. If you find yourself in Franz Joseph i would recommend you go!More

Our family enjoyed a super nice meal at Blue Ice. The Beef Cheek and John Dory Fish were very well prepared. Our son loved the fried rice. A very clean and quite place with a lovely deck. A perfect spot for dinner. It reminded us...of being in the Swiss Alps. The service was also excellent.More

You will have to ask Blue Ice Cafe directly that - I am only a reviewer, not the owner.
