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

We had thought we were on a winner when we booked for dinner here - the staff seemed lovely and the venue itself is gorgeous and beautifully appointed; and to boot - the menu looked divine. But our meal sadly was the worst of our week's holiday in Port Douglas. My initial cocktail was a Mojito but it wasn't muddled... More

We spent our last night on holiday here. It's very pretty setting with romantic/intimate ambience. The service was great, the menu at first glance looks minimal but once start selecting courses realised it's quite diverse and each course complimentary of each other. Pickings we chose included scallops and house made pate which were great and generous sizes, our entrees and... More

We were greeted by a friendly blonde girl who was very attentive and kindly explained the menu to us. A second younger waitress who came to take our order was a little abrupt when explaining which menus we could and couldn't order from. Our meals were excellent. The predinner appetiser was delicious, as was my grain salad and my partners... More

A whole group of friends dined at Harrison's while on holidays. Wonderful night had by all, excellent food, service and ambiance. One of port Douglas better fine restaurants, not cheap but very good value for money when you consider quality of the food and service.

Coming from a highly trained catering background I can't help myself but observe a restaurant and their level of service and food they are offering, being local we grabbed a couple of days away from Palm cove after the Xmas and new year break with my family, we dined at the “ fish on the inlet” first night and as...
