Had a lovely early lunch here. Staff were really nice. Plenty to choose from on the boards. Nachos were a good size and did not end up mushy like often happens with mince of poor quality. Mussel fritters had the thumbs up also. Mussels in thai sauce also good. Kids mocktails description ment adults had to have them too and... More

We came here twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Service was good and there is a lovely view from the outdoor seating area. We had the snapper for dinner which was quite delicious, cooked to perfection and a very sizeable portion too. They have a good selection of lunchtime choices. Perfect if you're looking for informal eating in... More

Sally's is an all day diner that serves simple but very nice food in the evening. The wine list is not that good but for a small fee they are happy for you to BYO. Food is wholesome, service is very friendly indeed and if you do not go to the "Duke" or Gables Sally's is well worth a try.

Sadly we couldn't sit and enjoy the beautiful view outside because it was raining, but both the food and the service were fantastic. With four boys aged 11 to 17 and two foodie parents, every member of our family was well catered for in terms of the menu and then very pleased with what appeared on our plates. Highly recommended.

lovely location but was disappointed to be charge a 10% surcharge when all the other restaurants were not charging this. we are from down south and had no idea that it was anniversary day today. Having said that our daughter accidently spilt her iced chocolate and the lovely waitress offered to get her another one - this was appreciated thanks.

There is no doubt why Sallys comes highly recommended. The service is warm and friendly without being at all intrusive. The food on both occasions was beautifully presented and prepared and there is a good choice on the menu. We returned here for a second night and experienced the same level of wonderful service. A great spot for lunch or... More

Situated right on the waterfront promenade in the picturesque town centre of historic Russell, we were spoilt for choice when it came time to eat dinner. Sally's had a spare outside table facing the sea and sunset, and promised gluten free desserts on the daily specials board so it got the nod. And we were most definitely not let down.... More

Following a tour with a local guide he suggested we try this restaurant - it was good advice. The location was convenient to our return ferry wharf and the view over the water was superb. Excellent food, pleasant staff who greeted you "as though an old friend" and they provided first class service.
