We had dinner here while on holiday. The renovated 1950's house makes for a nice venue. Inside the low ceiling and dark beams give an almost hobbit hole feeling - tall people watch your head. I was surprised to find such a good value offer - 3 courses for $55 at a top restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed my Duck Rillette entree,... More

We used Trip Advisor to choose this place for our 40th wedding anniversary dinner. We received a pleasant greeting on arrival, placed our order for the 3 course option and then waited almost an hour for the first course. The smoked fish was great but the squid very salty and chewy. Another long wait for the main. The duck was... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of The Executive Motel and we were not disappointed. Gorgeous house with many quaint rooms making it private and unique. The only offer is a 3 course meal for $55 - extraordinary value and small cost for additional extras. There is plenty of selection to suit the discerning diner and is... More

Nice little restaurant in a residential neighborhood with great service, food, wine and prices. Great wine list and with enough mains choices for everybody.Amazing with 3 wait staff, you don't need to wait or call for service. Need reservation as it's packed the night I was there.

On the TripAdvisor rating we booked for a Wednesday night in the busy Xmas holiday season and had a great meal. The fixed price approach with a wide variety of options is great with an all kiwi wine list to complement. Based on our normal world of Sydney pricing and quality the Brantry should stand proud and tall. The entrees,... More

A very understated location but the menu was interesting and food delicious. Service was excellent. I would definitely recommend. When we arrived I thought it was quite expensive but not after having spent more time in New Zealand.

Thank Louise C

The Brantry is located in a 1950's town house tastefully renovated to create a special ambience for any dining occasion. The low ceilings, large open fire and timeless decor gives a sense of style that owners Prue and Felicity are proud of. The food is described as contemporary New Zealand cuisine. Proud New Zealander Prue believes there is a wealth of food options here on our doorstep. The menu is updated seasonally to access all the freshest produce. The Brantry is a perfect venue for weddings we can organise everything from name tags to flowers.
