Being one of several witnesses to the incident involving an abusive Harrison's waiter referred to by Liz P's earlier review, all I can say is I was disgusted by the conduct I observed at the time but am now truly gobsmacked by the "shoot the messenger" attitude management have adopted in dealing with the issue. I like most people find... More

We loved this place! Amazing wine, beer, food service and atmosphere. Not one negative. We turned up without a reservation, and they accommodated us until a table became available. Worth every cent!

This is the place for great tasting food, excellent friendly service, and great wines. I had been booked into another restaurant and fortunately I passed Harrison's on the way. From the moment I arrived this was a great experience. Ask the waiters for recommendations - you won't be disappointed. So far I've find the food in Port Douglas a little... More

Very well thought out plates of food but tiny tiny portions and so you will need to order the side dishes. We have eaten at a fair few fine dining restaurant and never come away hungry before. We though the service was a bit lacking in the fact that they didn't have enough people to attend to you.. Overall I... More

Hi 'genehunters' Thank you for your feedback. We split our menu into 'pickings', 'entree' and 'mains'. Our pickings are great accompaniments to drinks in the bar or as a light snack before one of our share dishes for two persons, which are really large and come with several sides and sauces. As these share dishes are so large and filling,... More

For the past 5 years Harrison's has been part of our annual winter break in Port Douglas. On arrival at the restaurant there was a notice outside saying "chef wanted". Perhaps this in part explained what was to come. My wife was very satisfied with her meal but my yellowtail fish was accompanied by far too many peppers. The plate... More

Great dining experience. Had the beef cheeks and lemon tart dessert and they were both absolutely delicious. Tried boyfriends dishes and they were also great and he was raving about it as one of the best restaurants he's been to. Great cocktails as well.
