Visited this restaurant on our first night in Russell. The setting is amazing and the staff are superb. We have the fish and chips and chicken schnitzel and chips. Both were very good although the was a little too much salt on the chips.

All on all a very enjoyable evening.

Ignore the TA ranking and give it a try - you won’t be disappointed.

Yummy food. Brilliant service. Highly recommended. If the weather is fine, the tables just off the beach are magic.

On a wet Saturday evening we ferried across to experience BAYSIDE RESTAURANT.
A warm, friendly welcome by the owner Gordon and his staff set the scene.
Love the decor and ambience.
Beautifully presented menu with tasty choices.
We all tried different dishes which were plentiful and delicious.
Will definitely be returning.

We stopped by for lunch on Labour Day Monday. We had no trouble getting a table outside near the water, where the view was outstanding. The staff were friendly and efficient. We all had the fish and chips, which was fresh and came with a delicious tartare sauce.

As with many places along the Russell waterfront, it's not cheap, but it was fresh, tasty, quick and in a genuinely lovely spot.
