My partner and I moved up to Cairns a few months ago and have been searching for somewhere with 'edible' food since. Harrison's went above and beyond ANYTHING we have tried here. Delicious! The pork and blood bread made my partners mouth water and the desserts were amazing! The fairy lights were beautiful too! We can't wait to go back... More

Had high expectations for this place given the hype however I will say they offer a reasonable meal let down by god awful rude service. The only time I would come back to this restarant is to demand an apology. Fine dining indeed!

Had an evening meal and ate outside. Lovely setting in the garden and nice atmosphere. Food was good and service friendly, helpful and attentive. Started with an entree each of squid and pork. Nice presentation and flavours. Mains were pork plate and beef cheeks. Both dishes were beautiful and full of flavours. Nice touch to be served a small verrine... More

Lovely setting with professional wait staff. Service was good all night and we didn't feel hassled. Food was scrumptious and while servings were not huge, they were ample to fill us with three courses. Dessert to die for and specials of the day were excellent value. Expensive but worth it!!

I would not class this as a family restaurant, as the prices are a little high to waste on children. However, in saying that for adults the dining experience is worth the cost. The lunch menu is not large but offers something for all tastes. The flavour and presentation of the food is at top level and the service was... More

As a massive fan of food I had been checking out restaurants months before we got to Australia, this place was on the top of my list for Port Douglas. Maybe I built it up too much in my own head but I couldnt help but feel a little deflated afterwards. The restaurant itself it beautiful and very romantic, a... More

A fabulous meal at Harrison's last night. The best restaurant food I can remember and I'm used to eating out a fair bit. The kitchen really pushes the boundaries with excellent produce and amazing taste sensations. Service is very good too. Quite expensive but worth every dollar!

We there for our 15th anniversary thinking it would be special. My entree of smoked eel was amazing. However the eel consisted of two tiny pieces, swamped by a forest of cucumber, prepared in different ways. Nice but they took the focus off the star of the dish. Chargrilled squid was rather flavourless, the bacon providing most of the flavour.... More

Our meals were good, though a bit "fussy", and the atmosphere interesting, but the service was inattentive and condescending, which spoilt the experience somewhat. Harrison's seems to have quite a reputation in various circles, but it's not a patch on Nautilus.

Nice place to eat. This place is good but below our expectations . My husband and i have been to Port Douglas many times and we was looking for something special and not just for an ordinary meal. The meal was good but not sensational, the service was attentive.
