Pretty garden environment; mostly outdoor seating. Delicious food. We had fresh oysters and the fish & chips. Potions were generous, and the food arrived in good time and piping hot. A terrific spot to end our afternoon in Russell.

We had lunch here last Sunday, the food and service was excellent, the Kumera chips were out of this world and I love kumera chips. The Calzone pizza was well done, they had very relaxed cruisey music on and their service was really good.
