Our family had previously been fans of Harvey's previous incarnation-Villa Moura. The restaurant has undergone a complete makeover and is now smart, modern and sassy without losing the quality and service that made its predecessor so good. Prompt and friendly service with a varied menu including some excellent fish dishes make for a great relaxing evening out.

Have visited this place twice now, both visits were exceptional. If you are a fan of seafood you will love this place! The lobster is exceptional. Staff are all really knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. Can't wait to go back!

Was here on a work do and typical of a work night out, we were ignored and our custom taken for granted. Over an hour between taking our order and getting the main course.Restaurants need to think of 'work do's' as a fantastic marketing opportunity- there's a chance each and every person will return with their partner if they get...

Harvey's is definitely a restaurant that I would visit again and recommend to anyone! Nice decor and food is amazing, best I've had in the area. Also Aaron was a great host and made the night something to remember! Scallops and lobster were to die for!

DISCLAIMER: Harvey’s does not condone, nor promote the unlawful killing of any person in being on any day of the year. This includes Valentine’s Day. If we did, we certainly wouldn’t recommend using oysters. There are many more effective and efficient methods of dispatch available, as a quick Google search will reveal. In all seriousness Poon, I hope your partner... More

The food: The menu is modern and varied, with a focus on seafood. We started with oysters, which were lovely and fresh, before moving onto a mix of steak and lobster for main course. The thermidor was absolutely excellent, as was the surf 'n turf. Given the quality of the food plus the portion sizes, it was excellent value for... More

We went for a special family celebration dinner ... Our first visit since this became Harvey's Bistro, and we couldn't have asked for more. Lovely atmosphere, fresh modern decor, friendly welcome, excellent food and attentive service. Thank you Aaron for making our celebration dinner an evening to remember.
