There is only really one place worth dining in Russell, and thats the Kamakura. Don't bother with Gannets, you'll be dissapointed. Kamakura is right on the wharf, and serve some incredible food. They are recently under new management & a superb head chef. All the classy events are held there, and they cater for a lot weddings. I think is their new homepage: www.kamakura.co.nz ... Enjoy!

Sorry, don't know of anywhere that can accomodate 60 people in Russell- try contacting the bay of islands info centre on 0800 363463 or email them on visitorinfo@fndc.govt.nz

The Kamakura can definately cater for upto 70+ in Summer when they open their doors over the wharf. You can get them on contact@kamakura.co.nz

Otherwise, for the quality you want then try Paihia... but doesn't really compare to Russell :)
