We dined at a number of restaurants during our stay in Port Douglas and this was easily the pick of the bunch.The food and service were outstanding, honestly could not fault a thing. The slow cooked beef checks were amazing and melted in the mouth. Service was attentive and prompt without making you feel rushed. Agree with other reviews about... More

After a lovely morning at the markets we were enticed by the 14 hr slow cooked lamb shoulder w pumpkin + salad. All of it, & the service, was excellent - impressed with the lovely ingredients of wild rice, & spices on the lamb. Our only comment is the expensive wine list (& we are from Noosa Heads!). Surely offerings... More

The food on offer cannot be faulted, though service was a little off the night we visited. Definitely at the higher priced end of the local restaurants.

The best food and presentation we've had so far in Port Douglas. Easy and pleasant to deal with from booking to goodbye. Will be back for sure. Thanks!

Menu was pretty interesting, but the execution could have been improved for what is supposed to be a primo restaurant.

After being recommended by a friend, all I can say is that this place promises much and delivers well short. Upon my arrival and being seated, a glance at the menu shows a complete lack of imagination with the almost obligatory beef check and marrow dishes that have become common fare in any place that imagines itself a fine dining...

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in PD. We didn't expect such high quality and interesting food. We would have loved to spend more time and try out more dishes! Booking at dinner time seems essential as we were given the very last table (under the mango tree), everyone else was turned away. It's perfect for a... More

The food was excellent but I am not sure how anyone can afford a bottle of wine. I think the cheapest was $60 . I recognised some of the wines so I know the mark up price was almost double. I think that's really bad.

Harrison is one of the best dining experience I ever had. We are foodie couple so we check out best restaurants wherever we go; I have to say Harrison made the night spectacular. We had the degustation menu which included about 10 courses. We ordered oysters to start and they're extremely fresh and delicious. The wine pairing they design for... More

It's rare that you enjoy every dish in a degustation, let alone all the wines too. With the degustation at Harrison's, each dish was more delicious than the previous, from the sardines to the pressed chicken to the mackerel in clam and crab broth and even the beef cheeks which were so soft, they carved like butter. Dessert also was... More
