I went here recentlywith high expecting have only heard good reviews however our overall experience was not very good. Firstly greeting by the barn on our arrival was less than welcoming or enthusiastic. After ordering drinks we asked for menus to a response of "there should be some about". Not very helpful to say the least. The staff in general... More

I'm never disappointed with Harbourmaster. I've been there several times and my friends and family love the place. They don't save on food and you don't get less just because you're on a voucher. Yummy food and helpful staff. For my last visit I got a table at the window as I requested and I was very happy with that.... More

Had lunch today for the first time today in this place. What a nightmare experience. We had a young toddler with us and was meeting my bf for his lunch. Ordered a simple chicken wings and chips, sea food chowder. We were waiting over 25 minutes for the food. People who came in after us were served before us. We... More

Only been there once, never will be there again. I don't know why, but I had a beer with a friend at the bar. Nice place acutally, good assortment of beer - but the bar area itself was cold and - much more important - smelled a little bit like pee. Or toilet. Otherwise, the place looked great.

thought the restaurant was great! I ordered the grilled cod with mussels risotto and onion rings and friend ordered the red duck curry with the garlic n cheese potatoes. If I want to be finicky the cod was a tad over-cooked and the potatoes were a bit under-cooked. By the end of the meal the potatoes were perfect though so... More

Went here last night (Tuesday) after work, before heading up to the 3 arena. Hadnt been here in years and its still as good as the last time. Good atmosphere, very comfy and very good choice on the menu. The food was excellent and was served quickly and by a very friendly staff member. The only fault I have is... More

I love this restaurant. The food is delicious and you always get huge portions. It is always piping hot when it comes out and you can't eat straight away or be burnt, which to me is a good thing as I know it is not a microwaved meal made earlier. They are very obliging when you haven't booked and just... More
