My husband and I had our anniversary dinner there. We ordered speciality of the day which was a yellowfin tuna. The fish was made to the perfection, accompanied by mashed parsnip and a few bites of chorizo creates an exceptional combination.
Main was just amazing but wait till you taste the desert... That was a masterpiece!
We are definitely coming back to Russell and to the Gables!
Thank you team.

We went for coffee and dessert, and it was amazing. Staff were wonderful, ambience was gorgeous, and what a beautiful building.

Great location on the Russell water front in a charming old 19th century building. The food is good but not outstanding, service ok.

My husband and I were celebrating my Birthday while in Russell on Holiday.
We LOVED our meal here. The food was fantastic, and the red wine recommendation (for a big, bold red), was spot on! If you want a beautiful dining experience with Excellent Service, this is the place to come... Top Notch
