Wonderful setting. Our table was in the sand out frontof the hotel. We had a magnificent view of the sunset. Our waiter was very helpful, knowledgable and FUN. Dinner was very very good. I had the venison. Yum.

Excellent food, superb location on the esplanade and live music. A memorable place. We were here 2 years ago and had to go back again!

If you have the good fortune to visit the quaint town of Russell in the Bay of Islands during the warmer months, don't pass by the opportunity to dine at this charming and superb restaurant at the classic and quaint Duke of Marborough hotel. Not only is sunset magnificent facing the Russell harbor but the food is superb and the service first class. We had not been back to Russell since 1989 but this place made this year's trip even more memorable!

Had dinner with two others for the first time here in five years. This is now a seriously good restaurant. First class service, great locally focused fare, great wine list and a wonderful location. Am going back each time I am back in town.
We sampled the freshest oysters, raw tuna, a massive and perfectly cooked piece of beef, a chicken roulade with risotto which I devoured and all the desserts were great.

We had lovely food at this very popular hotel, but we didn't particularly like the attitude of the staff. We reserved arable and saw them put our names on it but when we arrived someone else was sitting there. They seemed indifferent. Quite expensive
