We ate both lunch and dinner here on one of the 2 days we spent in Russell. Excellent food for us foodies - we had pizzas at lunch and the fish and chips at dinner. BEST fish and chips I've ever eaten. The nice young man behind the counter recommended the local red wine, and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The staff were happy and helpful. Highly recommend it.

Enjoyed a tasty lunch here. Shared a caprese salad and kumara chips.
Opted for the fish tacos. Delicious but maybe the fish didnt need to be deep fried.
Great assotment of help yourself condiments. Casual vibe. Great crew. Bang on

We had a table inside the gazebo style room; our shared order of entrees and a pizza was perfect for a light early dinner. Wine was great, too!

We went to this restaurant for lunch purely on spec but were very impressed. There is a nice outside seating area and the staff were very friendly indeed. We started by sharing a portion of salt and pepper squid which was very good, and followed this with fish and chips, and a caprese salad. Both were excellent and well presented; in particular the fish was really fresh tasting, and it was the only time during our five week tour of New Zealand that I have thought that the chips were triple cooked (not that we have eaten chips too often of course)- they were excellent. There was a very limited wine list, but the wines were quite reasonably priced and appeared to have been selected with some care. We would happily return.
