Ten of us visited Harvey's to celebrate my sisters birthday. She is a massive seafood lover and we were all delighted with not only the food but the great service. The menu had something to suit everyone including the children and the meat eaters! Every mouthful was delicious and the baby squid simply melted in your mouth! Definitely going to... More

We don't usually do reviews on trip advisor as we are in the catering world!!! So we know how frustrating hard work and customer satisfaction can be. But!! We feel Harvey's is worth the time of a review!! The food was amazing. Fresh. And served with care! Every dish we had was gorgeous. We are a bit fussy when it... More

Its twenty odd years since we ate at this establishment although we cant quite remember why we left it so long - but were attracted back by the new look and feel of the bistro. And we were not disappointed by the hospitality, food, drink and general mood for the evening. Although not very crowded there was a little buzz... More

We’ve been using this local restaurant for over twenty years for both social and family occasions when it was Villa Moura and always found it very good. Last night was our first trip under its new name of Harvey’s Bistro and although the food was as good as ever, the attitude of the manager was dreadful. We were seated next... More

Hello David. As discussed on the evening, it is not our policy to moderate the volume of our guests unless their language or behaviour is deemed aggressive or offensive. The line has to be drawn somewhere and provided that our guests behave themselves, we do not think that it would be appropriate to police the volume at which our guests... More

Booked this fine restaurant for 6 people on fri 28.11.14 . It was fabulous, the food was delicious. My son was half hour late due to work and traffic but the staff took his order and managed to serve him the same time as us. All food was cooked and presented to perfection. Price was very reasonable. Staff were all... More

Despite having lived local to Villa Moura (as Harvey's was known until recently) for 10 years, I had never ventured in. After seeing an advert for Sunday roast I decided to pop in, and really glad I did. The staff were polite and friendly, with the male waiter offering to have a vegetarian dish made up for me even though... More

As a family we have been here several time and love the seafood. We went here last night with our cousins after singing the praise of this place only to have one of the worst service and experiences we have ever seen in a restaurant. The starters were really good except for the seafood soup. The only let down with... More

Hello Sabrina. You will note from previous activity on Trip Advisor that I am always the first person to apologise when a guest is unsatisfied with their experience and I genuinely take criticism on board - both positive and negative. I am not as arrogant or short sighted to believe that we always get it right. We are human. The... More

This is the first time we've come back to this place since they changed their name and refurbished. It was good then but it's even better now and we had probably the best seafood meal we've ever had in London. I had a delicious, succulent baby squid and chorizo starter and a 'Neptune' medley of mixed seafood all cooked to... More

Harvey's Bistro is the best restaurant in the area! Highly recommend it. Last weekend I went to the Harvey's with my partner and friends. We had an amazing time, the food was delicious.
