We were here for lunch. I loved the atmosphere of this place. The food was very good. Loved the green lip mussels cooked in green coconut Thai curry. The seafood chowder was good, too. I was very fortunate that they brought out a freshly baked apricot coconut cake. Really yummy.

Incredible food and beautiful location. Sally's has tables right on the water, and although it was too windy the day we went we still had a great view of the harbor from inside. We went for supper, I think it is more of a cafe during the day and then they have a separate dinner menu for the evening. I... More

Great tasting chowder, bit more seafood wood have been good. The bread was very dry and seemed old. Service was ok and my partner had a nice salmon sandwich.

We were on our final leg of a 2 week trip in New Zealand, and Sally's chowder was the best that we'd had. The oysters were also wonderful, we had the grilled ones, which were perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. We also had the fish special, and the lamb. Both were excellent. We sat inside (in the shade) and still... More

What a great place. Very helpful wait staff, well prepared dishes that not only taste good but look good too. Outstanding outdoor seating.

Not only is this one of the most beautiful, historic little bayside spots on the planet, after you've had a good look around and a walk up to Flagstaff Hill, you can sit at Sally's cafe and watch the ferries come in while slurping up a creamy seafood chowder, packed with mussels, prawns and scallops. Divine!

We were advised to go to Sally's for fish and chips and we enjoyed them so much we went back again! Freshly caught, freshly cooked and served with a smile!

This cafe is right on the waterfront. You can sit inside or at one of the few wooden tables along the front under the trees. We came in late on a very cold and rainy morning after the hotel we were staying in was unable to do breakfast for us. I had the most gorgeous hot cakes, thick but still... More

We looked around Russell and this place looked appealing even though there was a queue out the door and it was pouring rain. We went for a walk and when we came back, we found a table. So glad we stopped here as my wife's seafood chowder and my burger were beautiful. Coffee and cake was also very nice. Service... More
