We have just finished a lovely meal at our resort from Harrisons. Unfortunately I have a chest infection and could not go out to dinner. My husband went to the restaurant to explain, as this was part of a deal from staying at Hiscusis Resort and had been booked for our last night here. He arrived home with two entrees... More

Strangely, there aren't too many cities in Aust that boast 2 restaurants of this class side by side. We thought next door neighbour Salsa was a stand out until we wandered into Harrison's. The service, food & wine matches and ambience are capital city class. They won't thank us for promoting the care they showed to the meal for our... More

We always visit Harrisons when in Port Douglas and the food this time was just as good as usual. We shared the lamb which was delicious although there was enough for three people, delicious. Had a lovely bottle of wine, but could not fit in anything else. Service was impeccable, staff knowledgable and polite which is what you expect in... More

We started with pigs ears all salty and crisp, followed by smoked coral trout in local betel leaf and then some Hervey bay scallops with calamari and seaweed salad - divine. Ocean eight pilot gris. The kingfish was perfectly cooked with a crispy skin, octopus that melted with class and sweetcorn - heaven. The veal special looked amazing but we... More

I really wanted to rate Harrison's as "excellent". Have dined there on a number of occasions in the past couple of years, and have experienced what they are capable of. So, some context. This is a one-hat restaurant, placing it above all others for service, ambience, cleanliness, food, innovation and all the other thinks that set the top restaurants apart.... More

This restaurant did not fail to meet the expectations we had after having read their reviews: great food (both starters and mains, beautiful lamb) and very friendly and skilled employees. Highly recommended!

I had read good reviews about Harrison's so it was a 'must do' when on a recent holiday in Port Douglas. The setting is classy with twinkling fairy lights on the trees and a wide dining balcony surrounding the restaurant. The staff are all very professional and have a great knowledge of the menu and wines. There is complimentary starter... More

This place was a nice surprise. Impressive menu, lovely ambience and location and perfect service with no attitude. This place reeks of professionalism and it's obvious they're working hard behind the scenes to deliver the goods. I've experienced fine dining around the world and have never been motivated to review until now. Drinks menu is pricey. If you go for... More

The beef cheeks and desert the first night was the most tender I have ever eaten. on the second night we ordered Lamb shoulder for 2 and it came on a huge plater and we could not finish it and were to full for desert.
