For a small town, Russell has an amazing collection of great places to eat. They're all centred around Russell's main waterfront drag, the Strand, and York Street running parallel behind it. These delicious restaurants and eateries serve up a range of things you'll enjoy during your holiday in Russell.
Don't forget that you're right by the sea. You can't miss trying some delicious local seafood at the Bay of Islands Swordfish Club, with locations in both Russell and Paihia. They'll even offer to cook your catch if you've had a successful day out fishing. Or try a warming seafood chowder from The Gables, New Zealand's oldest operating restaurant.
To start your day the right way, enjoy breakfast and magnificent views at Bayside Restaurant & Bar, pick up a loaded bagel from Hell Hole, or try the York Street Cafe for generous portions of pancakes and hearty cooked breakfasts. Hone's Garden make the best pizzas in town, while Green's Traditional Indian & Thai Cuisine adds a bit of spice into the local dining scene. For a good old pub feed, you can't beat the historic Duke of Marlborough Hotel.
