Looking for somewhere for an easy and tasty late lunch in Russell without a hefty price tag then try Hone's Garden Wood Fired pizzas. A pleasant garden but we ended up with takeaways as the venue was booked for a private function but this wasn't...a problem as we sat on the Beach and ate them. Good flavours and ingredients and a hit with our teenagers.More

Found this wee tropical paradise on a short trip over to Russell. Good range of small plates which is how we like to eat, sharing a variety of dishes. The calamari was so tender and delicious! Would be a lovely place to meet friends and...spend an afternoon drinking and snacking. Loved the garden setting and the succulent wall was very cool. Totally recommend.More

Wow. Those pork and fennel sausage on your Pizza was simply delicious and we've not had a tasty pizza and the pizza bases like this for a very long time. Thank you!! Service was also great.

We have enjoyed Hone’s three times during our stay in Russell. Lovely garden setting, superb thin based scrumptious pizzas can’t rate them highly enough. The calamari is also superb. This place is a must during your stay in Russell.

The Calzone, garlic bread & olives were so good that we returned for seconds. Beautiful fish tacos. Nice friendly atmosphere, great service, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Thoroughly recommend :)

We had to drive the whole way from Queenstown to Russell to get the best pizza in NZ! Amazing Salad and perfect Pizzas. If we won't know that we are in NZ we would think we are in Italy!😍
