Description: The Brantry is located in a 1950's town house tastefully renovated to create a special ambience for any dining occasion. The low ceilings, large open fire and timeless decor gives a sense of style that owners Prue and Felicity are proud of. The food is described as contemporary New Zealand cuisine. Proud New Zealander Prue believes there is a wealth of food options here on our doorstep. The menu is updated seasonally to access all the freshest produce. The Brantry is a perfect venue for weddings we can organise everything from name tags to flowers.

“Very slick service”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

The staff are excellent here, right from the time of booking to leaving they did everything very promptly, different staff have different roles and they all perform excellently. I don't give such high praise easily!!
We all chose 2 course for $45 (3 for $55)
I had the Scallop and ravioli starter followed by Confit duck leg served atop red cabbage and pumpkin puree, I think the main could have done with more seasoning. We also ordered some side dishes (rocket salad and fries) which we found just a bit too much. There were different dining areas and for a week night most tables were taken, clearly popular. Appears to be children friendly as well.

“Quality Cuisine”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

One of the best meals we had in New Zealand. Contrary to an early review I had the pork and it was delicious. The service was impeccable and the food fantastic. Don’t miss this gem of a restaurant.

“Cuisine elegance”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Absolutely delicious food served in proportions of modest size, not gluttony oversize. The restaurant is in a house with a variety of rooms with different décor to sit in and with eclectic art throughout. Don't forget to look upstairs.... and there's a beautiful intimate room for a private party of 6 or so. Truly a charming find.
