We were travelling back from the far North to Orcland and stopped off at Paihia, grabbed a ferry, and shot over to Russell for lunch.
This place surprised me. It has all the estoreric charm of a Freemasons Lodge with the modern features like a massive outdoor area.
The food surprised me. RSA's are normally known for their fish and chips, steak and chips, pie and chips, sausage and chips, and chips and chips.
There was great variety at a reasonable price and it was fresh and tasty.
Go there. Sign in. Dine in. Have a few beers in the garden. Get the locals to tell you their stories.
