Description: Welcome aboard one of Queenstown’s longest operating restaurants. Our history is rich as we have been locally owned and operated for over 30 years. During this time, we have become popular with locals and travellers alike. Britannia was established on connecting our guests with great service and quality food. Our aim is simple – to provide a unique and enjoyable experience for everyone that steps through our door. We do this by sourcing quality New Zealand ingredients for our dishes, working with top NZ wineries and wrapping it together with friendly servers from around the world.

This was a lovely place to eat. The food was superb and the service was friendly and efficient. When seated, we were advised that there might be a long wait for the main course due to the presence of a large group, but we waited less than half an hour so that was fine. It was also good value for money. Overall, a lovely dining experience.

Atmosphere: Decoré of a ship. Felt it was too dark and had a heavy feeling. I think it could have been modernised and still maintain the feeling of a ship in this era. In the outdoor seating, the glass roofing needed to be cleaned, off putting eating while looking at these dirty glass roofing. It’s a bit tired looking and needs to be maintained.
Service: good and attentive service
Food: The steaks were good. The salad boring and tired and old. The seafood chowder amount was too small. There was nothing exciting about the food. It was tired and needs to be overhauled.
Price: For what it was, it was over priced for steak.

A strange layout for this restaurant, the upper dining area is set out to resemble a wooden hulled ship. Apart from the décor the service and food could not be faulted.
