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. Anchors aweigh, The Britannia Crew
