My husband and I are Cairns locals, and we had a reservation here for our 1st wedding anniversary, on our weekend away in Port Douglas. We were looking forward to this dinner immensely as a fine dining, elegant experience. We knew it was a very pricey restaurant, but were prepared to pay for good food, wine and service for a... More

Thank you for choosing Harrisons Restaurant we are certainly sorry to read your review. In the interests of clarifying the situation, I would like to advise that we do not add automatic tips to our bills, ever. Suggesting that we do is rather defamatory. Now that most people are on board with using a pin number rather than a signature... More

Four adults and a 2 year old ate at this restaurant recently. One adult vegetarian, one gluten free. Plenty on the menu to choose from. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and included a complimentary amuse bouche and palate freshener. What really impressed us was the respect and attention given by this upmarket restaurant to children. Produced a booster seat... More

Attending a function at this establishment was an experience to say the very least. After being passed by several times by a staff member who I believe was the manager, I signalled politely only to be abused by said manager for being pushy and singing out to him across the crowd. To mine and other guests astonishment, he proceeded to... More

I'd noticed a previous comment saying how rude the service was and have to contradict this totally. We walked past while the restaurant was closed late afternoon and caught the attention of one of the waiters setting the tables for the evening - asking if they could accommodate four of us. He said that they could find space even though... More

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
