We only had a couple of take away pizzas one night but they were wood-fired, thin-crusted, generously covered and we enjoyed them.

A perfect start to the holidays this place screams far north vacation. Local beers on tap. Top quality ingredients in the food. A couple of tasty pizzas, calamari and onion rings washed down with a Macleod's IPA. Kids loved squirting the seagulls with the water gun. Tops.

A number of ingredients weren't available so were substituted .. told when ordering. Caprese salad was disappointing as so little mozzarella. It was a quick refuelling stop

Our pizza was nicely made, a good crust that wasn't too thick and good flavour. Fresh herbs on top too!

Busy place, not sure why? Food was average, staff were rude as eftpos was't working and music too loud.

We last visited this place two years ago, and in that time it has really grown. It was always a fun & funky place for a social casual meal, but now the garden has been expanded and they've added extra seating under a gazebo plus a covered area. The pizzas are wood-fired and delicious, and the staff are friendly, if... More

Beautiful garden bar. Top notch food and great setting. Can be a bit tedious when busy trying to order drinks and food, as no table service, so you end up queuing.

We had a casual dinner twice at Hone's Garden while in Russell. Once as a couple and once with friends. Fabulous pizza and authentic Italian calzones freshly created by Vito....live from Italy! Honestly, I am Italian, (family name Orrico) and have never had a calzone like Vito prepared! Manager Isaac was on both nights and all the patrons were enjoying... More

We had a lovely meal here. The garden setting is lovely. The pizzas are really good. We'll go again next time we're in Russell.
