Description: Harrisons Restaurant exists in a setting that is made for romance and fun...
Harrisons Restaurant exists in a setting that is made for romance and fun. The colonial style house and colourful gardens create a wonderful atmosphere for cocktails, romantic dinners and celebratory events. Food is skillfully created using produce that is always fresh and preferrably local. Spencer Patrick, owner of Harrisons, has navigated Harrisons as an award winning restaurant since it's inception in 2007. Harrisons has consistently held national accolades for it's food and wine and stands alone as Port Douglas' only One Hat rated restaurant in the QLD Good Food Guide. Spencer's style draws from his training in classic French cuisine and love for all things English. His belief is that good food can be enjoyed any where in the world, but what better place to enjoy it than in Paradise!

My husband and I were having the worst night in another restaurant in town (we walked out after entrees!) and decided to take a walk to find a nice place to make up for it, and my God did we ever!

My partner are I are Cairns locals and have dined at Harrison's on numerous occasions. We even stayed at Port Douglas overnight on Valentines Day just so we could have dinner there and, yet again, we were thoroughly impressed with the food and service.

We dined here on our first night of our holiday - the food was exceptional. We got the degustation and every course was fabulous. Would definitely recommend coming here - of all the restaurants we went to in Port Douglas this was our favourite.

Had a deal through the Resort we were at, but the staff treated us as if we were full paying customers. They kept our glasses full with water etc, the food was excellent, and the service was spit on. Would definitely go there again, when we are next in Port Douglas. Recommend to everyone.

Lovely location, well laid out, unfortunately was rather pretentious and to much effort put into food, need to get back to reality and serve good food without over doing it. Would think twice about returning

Was lucky enough to be take here by friends for a birthday dinner. There was a main of lamb and vegetables that was to be shared between two, and it was stunning. Dessert was almost as good, and it is honestly one of the best meals I've ever had. Great staff and expensive but beautiful food.

During our week long holiday at Port Stephens we decided to try a range of restaurants in the area - Harrison's being one. We had very much looked forward to the evening as the restaurant itself was lovely - gorgeous setting with a spectacular view and lovely staff. Our first dilemma was attempting to find something vegetarian to eat as... More

My partner and I recently had dinner here as part of a holiday package in Port Douglas. Our dinner entitled us to a selection of dishes from a set menu and a glass of champagne. For a "chef hatted" restaurant we felt that the staff were not as professional or on the ball as they should have been. We were... More
