We loved the casual vibe! The pizzas were amazing. Thin bases, great toppings. They even do a gluten free base (same size as their others) and the bases are just as good. This place gets busy so make sure you get a drink, and place your order early as there may be a little bit of a wait. The setting... More

This place has a great atmosphere in its outdoor courtyard setting and while primarily a pizza place (which looked awesome) we were in the mood for fish. Hands down the best fish and chips and fish tacos all trip... and for me the best fish tacos I've had in the 15 years since I left southern California. We may well... More

Nice and charming place, nice terrace, large. Perfect to dine al fresco a good, tasty and simple food. Italian s pizzas but with local flavours ( you are sit really far from Italia) and other classics like fish and chips. Ideal if you want skip the other sophisticated restaurants

A very pleasant alfresco-style bar with good service but a bar that doesn't serve orange juice is an odd one isn't it?

My husband and I try to visit Russell every summer and absolutely love Hone's Garden! It is even more charming post renovation. Our last visit was Waitangi weekend - first for drinks with friends then for dinner the following night. It's a great place to go when there's a power outage (like we had) because wood fired pizzas don't need... More

Quirky courtyard location, very good beer selection, and good food at a reasonable price. We had the lamb and highly recommend it.

I've been going to Hone's for a number of years now and can easily say this is the best casual dining spot in Russell. The pizza's are prepared in a flash, delicious and I love the newly renovated space!

Great atmosphere. Pleasant friendly staff and matched by good food. We ate outside the first evening the second occasion we ate outside till the rain started and then we were able to go undercover to big settees with the most colourful cushion. Second night we decided to eat a pizza as we had watched them being enjoyed on our first... More
