What an awesome Find! Cool Vibe, Great selection of wine & beer, yummy pizza and just an all round great place to chill. It was super busy and no tables left so we had take away and sat at the tables by the water at...sunset! I’d say - probably the best place to eat or drink in Russell.More

OK, it's a busy time of the year, and we accepted the wait, which wasn't too bad. But the pizza! What a disappointment! The thinnest, meanest topping I've ever seen. Cheese is not really that expensive, is it? New residents, and hoping to find a...regular eating place, we've decided that this will definitely not be it. No toilets, so customers have to queue for the busy, dirty public loos next door. Pleasant servers is the best compliment i can give.More

Great place for a crafty if you are in Russell. Didn’t indulge in the pizzas but they did look tasty. You’ve got to have a quick eye for a good table as there are no reservations taken. Would recommend. 5 axed flag polls out of...5.More

Couldn't fault my visit here. They were crazy busy but still provided excellent and quick service. Great wood fired pizzas, drinks and a great vibe. Highly recommend!

Getting a table proved to be a bit tricky as the set up caters more to families than couples but once we did it was worth the wait. The pizza was absolute perfection.

Wow hone’s garden what a gem of a place beautifully turned out charming plants, tables, chic panelling and with a relaxed vibe, the dogs chilled out under the table while we ate Margareta pizza and had a beer, was so good would recommend checking this...out.More

For some reason it is really hard to find outstanding pizza in NZ but Hones mails it. The bases are light and taste just right, the tomato sauce is perfect, and the range of ethical fresh toppings is so good. The oysters were great too....I am grateful to find a place that serves delicious food with relaxed friendly staff in a lovely outdoor setting cos I'm fussy. Highly recommend if you are in Russell.More
