Now celebrating 150 years of luxury hospitality, Britannia has six restaurants & bars, including Speilsalen, Christopher Davidsen’s (Bocuse d’Argent 2017) first signature restaurant. Classic French cuisine with a modern Norwegian slant, severed in the palatial setting of the 19th century mirrored dining room.
