We loved this place - right on the waterfront in a beautiful 1840s building with a view of the water. The food was excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer. They were very gracious and accommodating when told at the last minute that 2 guests were gluten free (coeliac) and one also vegan - in fact they were the... More

Delicious meal, great views looking out onto the waterfront in the sunset, and great atmosphere. As someone else mentioned, although delicious the rib of beef for 2 was more rare than ordered but still great. Pricey menu, but the whole dining experience was worth it.

We just couldn't fault the Gables. The food was exquisite, and the staff very courteous, professional and friendly. Hope to be able to enjoy their hospitality again some time.

Excellent, friendly and efficient service and great food too. There's also a log fire for the colder nights.

We had all three courses and finished off with... More

Great views, lovely service, and the food was excellent. Had the beef rib for two, was delicious, although it came out a bit more rare than we asked for. A little bit pricey, but on par with most of the other restaurants in town. Would go back.

l have eaten at this waterfront restaurant many times and it just seems to get better and better. I was in Russell in May and enjoyed another divine dinner, right on the water. Excellent wait staff and personal attention. Congratulations.
