Wonderful atmosphere but pricy

A setting top notch setting looking out at the ocean and gulf islands, staff very professional, food great but the food is expensive. The lounge area is small and the patio is shaded so cool but you look out at the most wonderful view.

With 2 other couples we had dinner here on a Friday night. We had eaten there a few times previously but never on a Friday night. At other times it was busy but not noisy. This night the lounge bar which adjoins the restaurant was busy as was the main restaurant.It was difficult to have a conversation with our friends... More

We went with a party of 8 to the Haro's dining room at the Pier at Sidney the other night. The menu is poor, and not at all up to any decent hotel standard. Food was not at all pleasing, and quite over priced. Service was OK.

It was busy night when we went to Haro before the Sidney Thursday night market. Luckily, there was entertainment (pianist) to keep us entertained. Unfortunately, that was the high point of the evening and the restaurant struggled to keep it together. Our waitress was friendly and welcoming but couldn't handle the orders with so many people. Our daughter enjoyed her... More

This is a nice resraurant for Sidney. However this visit was somewhat chaotic. They appeared to have too few staff, kitchen overwhelmed and problems handling their orders. We had to flag down the hostess to finally get taken to the table, server did not bring bread and main course more than 50mins after the starter was done. That said the... More

We have eaten at Haro's for a few years now and, not once, have we been let down. The eclectic menu is delicious and the team of servers and hostess wonderful. We'll keep coming back...

We would rate the lunch a four, nice atmosphere and some excellent choices on the menu. Unfortunately, we can't say the same about dinner. The way the place was built clearly implied a desire for a quality restaurant. The ambiance and décor are quite outstanding, the views unsurpassed. The problem is that Sidney never had and never will have the... More

This was my second lunch at Haro"s and once again I had the Mussels and Frites which were delicious. All of our meals were well prepared and tasty. It was a beautiful sunny day and we sat on the patio with a fantastic view of the harbour. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food served and the pub... More

Very nice overall experience. Well organized, food was great. Had a good selection of items for any mood. Pizza, which I dont usually order, was excellent. Wine selection was very well thought out with a good bottle list. Menu atmosphere and drinks allowed for casual fine dinning that was relaxed and open. Enjoyed the weekly features and will be back...
