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.

The restaurant is tematic, you will feel inside the boat and everything there makes you think that. You can eat sea food or steak and the sea food is fantastic, until now brittania it's the best restaurant, i have ate ate in Queenstown. If you go there please eat the brittania dessert. But I'm sure that you will love everything

This was our first time at Britannia and it completely lived up to expectations. The atmosphere was nice and cosy, so quirky with all of the maritime details. The food was excellent and the staff were great also. They were really friendly and helpful. The kids also enjoyed the kids menu. We finished off with their signature dessert the Britannia Royale. I just wished we'd taken a photo of it, I guess we'll just have to come back :-)

I had the lamb rack and it was so well tender with a bit layer of crispy makes it so delicious together with the special sauce of sour...... the place is warm with strong atmosphere like in ther Knight era of Britain, so enjoyable. definitely will come back for next round in Queenstown.

I went for a dinner with my friend. We had seafood chowder and calamari as entree and from mains prawns and venison medallions. Everything was right, cooked up to standard and well seasoned. Calamari had nice soft texture and tasty curry type coating, seafood chowder few bits of seafood and creamy texture. Salads were quite simple, roasted veggies just basic. Meat and prawns were cooked nicely and were soft. Portion were quite big and we didn't try any desserts. I think it's a great restaurant if you want to play safe and have good regular food, although nothing spectacular. Thank you for great environment and service :)

Venue has a lot of character. Named after the battleship during the WW2. Service was a bit slow to begin with (took a long time for starters to arrive) but soon picked up. Kids loved their meal and the lamb shanks were amazing. Pasta was mediocre and could improve. I am rating the food slightly low as there was no chicken in the restaurant when we went. For such a common ingredient, we were shocked that the restaurant couldnt serve any chicken dishes as they didnt have any!

My Husband and I have been to Queenstown at least four times now and why oh why have we not dined at the Britannia Restaurant before?!! On Thursday night we had the absolute pleasure, along with two family members, to immerse ourselves in the entire experience. The ambience of the ship themed Restaurant is second to none and such a pleasure to walk into from a cold night. The entrees we chose included the seafood chowder, prawn cocktail, calamari and "real garlic bread" as my son described it. Everything absolutely scrumptious! We had two steak dishes (best steak ever in Queenstown) one rack of lamb and the salmon. Once again everything scrumptious!! Seriously this is the BEST Restaurant we have ever dined at and we have been to the supposed top notch ones! The staff were also excellent and we truly cannot wait to dine here again. Well done guys!!

This place is a gem! The inside of Britannia is like the inside of a ship, we opted to sit inside and were sat at a cosy little booth by candle light.

The food was fantastic, I ordered a steak, rare and it was perfectly cooked, my partner had the lamb shanks and they were huge with meat that fell off the bone - he was super happy!

The service was some of the best service I have had in New Zealand in a long time. They asked about our day, made sure the food was okay, waited until we had both finished eating to clear plates, checked on drinks when we were empty - top notch!

Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone heading down this way :)

This is our second time dining at Britannia. I have always been so pleased by the service of the staff. The restaurant’s ship theme is unique and makes for a very neat experience. The food is great, and we have all sampled a wide range of dishes but the lamb shank always is a favourite. Portions are large so be prepared for that. It’s a fun place to eat and I’m sure we will go again!

Britannia hasn’t changed much for years - but that’s not a criticism. It’s great fun being able to go somewhere where you can still get a traditional meal of steak with garlic butter, or prawn cocktails... And as for their signature chocolate boat with a toffee mast - love it!!
