We have never had a bad meal here, the Goveners Burger is a great choice if you're hungry with possibly the best chips in the world!

My family and I had dinner here last week. The hotel and restaurant are in a beautiful setting on the harbour shore. The staff and service were excellent - impeccable. My tempera oyster entree was delicious - crispy, fresh and juicy. The bouillabaisse main was bland and disappointing - the fish, hapuka and tarakihi, were cut way too small and barely visible. It was served with a chunk of hard over-baked buttery bread that did not properly soak up the broth. The risotto was over flavoured with edamame. Dad loved the seafood chowder although I thought it was too salty. Those that had fish and chips loved it - fresh, cooked perfectly, and delicious.

It was delightful sitting in the restaurant with a big open fire and gazing at the old artefacts - such a wonderful atmosphere. I will definitely check it out again next time I'm in Russell.

After a full day of business I stopped in for a glass of wine and to warm in front of the fire - perfect.

This place has a fabulous outlook and a very pleasant atmosphere. The food is quite good and the menu has an adequate selection. The open fire next to the chesterfield lounge is rather inviting on a cold day. Recommend for atmosphere more than food.
