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.

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.

Outstanding evening. The service was impeccable and the food was even better. I had the fillet which was cooked to perfection and my girlfriend had the sizzling steak which was also delectable. Also, highly recommend the mussels and prawns we had to start with. Even without the first table this place would still be great value for money. A hidden gem. Already planning our return.

Nice atmophere, friendly staff.
I ordered sizzling steak, my partner had a vegeterian option out of the menu, both were nice. Generous portion of my steak, couldn't finish.
Only we feel the taste of the dessert has space to improve.

Overall, a very pleasant meal

Excellent just like last time! The food was great, really tasty and high quality and nicely put together - the mink fish with muscles was delicious as was the salmon. The ship dessert is a very cute touch! As always the staff were super attentive and things like our candle expiring was rectified within 2 minutes. Thanks again guys! We'll be back :-)

Pleasantly surprised!! We'd assumed Britannia would be like Rhino's Ski Shack underneath it but the ship theme and decor is really cool - very quirky and fun to be in. The starters were great, all a decent size and the oysters super tasty. Steaks cooked perfectly and with decent sides... Too full to try desserts! We'll be back :-) Thanks guys for a great meal!

We was order seafood platter and Lobster, all seafood is very fresh. Seafood platter is big size. But, I have a suggestion for seafood Platter, the rice could separate to two cup of rice to customers. Because, the rice is under the platter , that is not easy to eat and if calamari is crunchy would be prefect. Anyway, this is very good experience in Britannia. Thank you

Great as usual - Prawns and Calamari and then Steak & Turf and Venison, all very well presented and tasty. Had thought we would have desert as well - had to forgo after the 2 other courses left us well satisfied
We definitely return

We had wonderful dining experience at Britannia last evening. Two of us ordered the lamb shanks and the other individual ordered the surf and turf. The entrees were delicious. There is a small wine list but a full bar and a very friendly staff. The restaurant is small so, reservations are recommended. Also, you may feel as if you are below deck in an old ship. Ambience was wonderful with the candle light, etc. We agreed we would certainly eat here again.

First time eating at britannia and safe to say it won’t be the last! Walking into the restaurant you feel like you are on an actual ship. The inside is incredible and so detailed. There was three of us and to start we had mussels and oysters which were probably the best we’ve ever had. For our mains I had the salmon and the two others had the surf and turf, it was amazing!!! All the servers were very quick and attentive. We will be back.
