Welcome aboard HMS Britannia.

A unique dining experience, your surroundings are a feast for the eyes. Decked out like an old English galley ship, the restaurant has faux teak, ropes, anchors and a ship's wheel.

The a la carte menu features international and fusion cuisine. Your taste buds are in for a treat with fresh seafood and the finest cuts of New Zealand meat available. Slow braised lamb shanks, the Admiral's special seafood platter and prime ribeye steak served on a sizzling platter are just some of the menu highlights.

Make sure you leave room for a Britannia Royale, a sumptuous chocolate boat filled with ice cream and rigged with a toffee sail.

With ship-shape service and a range of cocktails, beers and wine to accompany your meal, you'll be glad you jumped aboard the HMS Britannia.

Food and atmosphere were perfect for a nice night out! Try the blue cod, sooo good. Not a fish eater? Can’t go wrong with a steak, and Britannia made a mean ribeye. Portion sizes were more than fair and staff was super friendly.

Loved every minute of my visit here over the weekend. The food was the die for, I had the mussels and my partner had the chicken and we were stuffed after. The service was a little on the poor side but it did start getting busier after we were seated so understandable. I would definitely dine here again :)

It was our 55th Wedding Anniversary. We chose Britannia for its seafood menu. We were not disappointed. The seafood cocktail & squid starters were perfect choices followed with scallops for him & the monk fish with mussels in a fabulous butter sauce ( can I have the recipe) for me we finished with a chocolate boat filled with ice cream & toffee rigging. A boat with 2 owes as the waiter described. It was also perfect also as we could share by eating at both ends. It was hot so we were outside. When a table become free in the breeze, we were asked if we would like to move there. The staff were friendly, & helpful but didn’t bother us while eating. I hate being asked while eating if you like the meal! We will definitely be going back. There are lots of things yet to try on the menu.

One of the few restaurants in Queenstown largely unchanged in the last two decades. Unique decor inside like an historical ship's cabin and lovely balcony overlooking the Mall. Good service. Largely seafood but also all the red meats and chicken on the menu. Simple, but sufficient wine-menu. We ordered the (shared for two) seafood platter - delicious and generous! Then the signature 'chocolate ship, grand marnier ice-cream and toffee sail' dessert I remembered (never forgot it) from 20 years ago. Super happy with everything and highly recommend Brittannia - it has a good thing going - hope they don't change!

Still totally love this place - 80's themed ship / castle restaurant that would just wouldn't expect if you saw it from the outside. Food is excellent and very reasonably priced even at full price so first table is a steal! I need to start exploring more of the menu but their steaks are too good. Next time I promise myself I'll try the Salmon as my partner gets it each time and its even better than the steak! Thanks guys and see you again!

Nice service. Portion size and taste are awesome. We ordered the Sinbad’s sizzler and lamb rack. They are sooo amazing including the fries came with the ribeye steak. Thanks to first table, we got 50% off our bill except for the drinks, which is still an extremely great deal. We will definitely be back if we visit Queenstown.

We had such a great evening at Britannia last night. The decor is fantastic - the inside of an old galleon - but it was the way in which the staff dealt with a last minute vegan addition to our party that made the evening. Thank you to all of you for going that little bit further for us. Highly recommended.

Great food and great service. We were running nearly 15 mins late but the staff still made sure to hold our table and still gave us the first table. Mains were really big portion size so small eaters need to keep that in mind but overall a lovely experience

We went for dinner with our son 7 and daughter who is under 8 months. The restaurant is very poorly lit with no ventelation, our daughter was quite uncomfortable throughout the dinner. My son ordered Mac and cheese which he could not eat, it had a very strange taste, the staff was happy to swap with some other dish, so he ordered fish and chips, the fish had a smell to it and again he could not eat. We also ordered calamari and garlic bread to start with, they probably were the worst calamari I have ever had. For mains we ordered fish which was very average, garlic prawns with rice was plain boiled rice with pan fried prawns in garlic, nothing great again seemed like prawns from super market... would not recommend anyone to go there, as for me I would never go there again. We were so disappointed that we actually went and canceled our booking to another restaurant the next day and cooked something at home which we enjoyed

Good food in a dark but interesting setting. Well-portioned serving sizes for the mains but the side dish of vegetables was quite small. Overall quite good.

Service was great. Met with a smile on arrival and service continued at a good standard. Food was very average for the prices. Very bland, the veg the dish come with was ridiculous. Potatoes covered in sour cream reminded me of a TGI fridays. Wouldn’t be going back for the food.

Quirky and great interior was my first good impression. We were greeted upon arrival and looked after really well by our server throughout our stay. She gave us recommendations when we asked what was good. Food was 10/10. I got the steak and my friends got the lamb shanks while we all shared oysters for our starter and Britannia chocolate boat for dessert. Was very satisfied with the experience.
