Fodor's Expert Review The Wharf
The prime dining spot in Russell, this waterfront restaurant combines subtly prepared yet flavorsome cuisine with arguably the best restaurant view in town—especially if you nab a table up front. It specializes in cooking on very hot stones—everything from fish and steak to chicken and vegetables. There are tables across the road from the kitchen on the waterfront. It gets very busy in the holiday periods so book ahead.
