The Marina Restaurant is one of the finest restaurants in Gisborne. Set in the historic Lysnar ballroom, we offer affordable elegance with a superb riverside location. Dining at the Marina is an experience not to be missed!


The Marina Story
This historic building was originally the ballroom of Lysnar House which was built in 1919.
The extension of the ballroom to Lysnar House was built for a daughters 21st birthday celebration. The loft where the string quartet played still exists as does the chaperons room at the very top of the building. This section of Lysnar House was moved to its present site in 1974 and was converted to a restaurant.

The location of the Marina Restaurant is rather unique being on the junction of three rivers - the Waimata River, the Taruheru River and the Turanganui River.

The Turanganui River is the shortest river in New Zealand being only one thousand two hundred metres long.
