We had morning tea at Sally's and the setting is beautiful we sat at the tables on the side of road next to the ocean. It doesn't sound beautiful but the road is hardly used and the traffic has to travel at 20 kph. The coffees where good and the atmosphere delightful. The weather was fantastic so very memorable.

The staff at this restaurant were so warm and friendly and shared their travel tips for the location. We were seated across the road and right on the water front which was quite romantic. Our dinners were delicious fresh seafood dishes and sides. We left feeling thoroughly stuffed and satisfied. Only lost a star due to my second lemon lime... More

Five of us had dinner at Sally's Restaurant. We had a range of meals - steak, fish, pasta and chicken. All of us agreed the meals were excellent. The service was also great - prompt, friendly and some great banter back and forth. As we were just up for a night, we were also able to get some local knowledge... More

We had brunch here one morning...its just a short trip across from Paihia to Russell and we sat outside on the shore line, enjoyed our coffee while waiting for our eggs Benedict. I enjoyed this spot, the sea gulls were screaming for some food but a friendly duck waddled over and he got some of the breakfast too. Sally's is... More

We arrived in Russell late at night, and were pleased to find Sally's still open. The Seafood Bisque is to die for, as were the other seafood dishes. Staff were very welcoming and attentive.

Sally's is an establishment in Russell and although looking old fashioned from the outside, don't let that fool you. The menu is current and the food is of high quality. There were 6 in our party and between us, tried a good range of dishes. My mussel fritter which was a special on the blackboard was one of the best... More

Wow! And Yum! Great coffee and homemade cake. The warm chocolate cake was tempting... But we had gluten free orange cake. The piece was huge so enough to share. $17 for two small coffees and one piece of cake was a bit pricey.

Large portions and friendly service, we had the fish and chips and seafood chowder which were both excellent. The decor left a bit to be desired, but the quality and quantity of the food made up for it, and the location was prime and had great views. Would go back for sure.

Friendly staff great food and... More

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