We had breakfast and afternoon tea here - lovely fresh scones and very friendly atmosphere. My husband rated his cooked breakfast as a 10/10!

Excellent position on the Russell Esplanade, with al fresco dining when the sun shines and indoor seating as well. Great selection of cakes and goodies, and a well balanced menu including local oysters to die for. Staff pleasant and on the ball, service time a minimum wait, always a jovial conversation from Graeme (Sally's better half). Late in the day... More

One of my backpacker guests wanted to buy me lunch in appreciation of a great stay and we went to Sally's. Waterfront table, great autumn weather and a really good calamari dish. Warm salt and pepper squid so nicely cooked it melted in the mouth and the lemon dressing to calamari and salad was ' spot on'. Sally's you've done... More

Sally's is the type of place where you can relax, enjoy the view and have something hearty to eat! My husband and I had burgers & fries on a cool day and it was just right! The atmosphere is relaxed, coffee very good and restaurant position fantastic. Thanks Sally & crew!

Our third visit back to Russell, and walking into Sally's makes us feel like we're coming home!!! Wonderful friendly greetings, and the food is excellent. This visit we dined at Sally's four times. Breakfast twice, lunch once, and afternoon tea once. We figure - why stray when you've found the best in the bay!?! Eggs and bacon to perfection, eggs... More

We were on a day trip to Russell in the Bay of Islands and stumbled across Sally's Restaurant. The lady who greeted us was friendly and helpful as it had just started to sprinkle rain indoor tables were at a premium. She advised us to just order and that she would seat us in a second which she did. The... More

We stopped by Sally's for lunch and found a table outside looking to the harbour. With no menu's we took turns to look at the blackboard menu inside, we had to order there anyway. We ordered fish and chips - tasty fish but the chips were a bit undercooked, and the calamari with salad - this was way better that... More
