The Gables Restaurant

The Gables is located in Russell, Bay Of Islands and was New Zealands first licenced restaurant.


The Gables Restaurant, established in 1847, is right on Russells Waterfront. A great place to enjoy a meal for sunset. The Russell water front is blessed with being West-facing, so sunsets are spectacular.

The Gables also has a beer garden at the rear of the property which backs on to Russell's Main street.
