We were impressed with the food and the attentive service. Wine list had lots of excellent Aussie wines. I recommend.

Really enjoyed our meal here just a few days ago. We walked in without a reservation for an early dinner and were made to feel very welcome. I'd recommend booking to get one of the street-side tables at the front, but actually most of the tables are good. Food was imaginative and well executed, and always looked visually stunning.

Having looked forward to our meal here, we were disappointed. The host was, frankly, unwelcoming. While the rest of the staff made more of an effort, the service lacked warmth. The manner of the staff here was in stark contrast to the genuinely friendly reception in the other places we ate during our stay. While the food was of excellent... More

Looking at the previous reviews I see that most of the bad ones were about service. Well I would say that the restaurant has taken note of them and sorted out whatever problems that they had as the service we received was excellent from start to finish. It was attentive yet unobtrusive and the staff were very knowledgeable about the... More

Having ate at some of the worlds best restaurants I know good food. While Harrison's isn't up there with those restaurants, nor does it charge those prices. Harrison's is just below Michelin quality. The dishes are well conceived and presented using good produce. Portion sizes are good. Service was very good, ambience was very nice. All in all a very... More

The menu and ingredients are out there and may not suit some diners - recommend you check out the menu and then book. Food was great and service attentive. The ambience is fantastic.

There are a number of good restaurants in Port Douglas but Harrison's is a level above all the others. It is consistently very good and compares with the best in Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore and elsewhere in Asia. Last Saturday I had a starter of beetroot and cured Spanish Mackerel, followed by a main comprising duck, apple, fennel and liquorice -... More

We dined at Harrison's last night and once again the food and service could only be described as superb. I am a big fan of Steak Tartare and last nights was by far the best ever. The Spiced Blood Bread an unusual and delicious addition. The noises my wife made whilst eating her entrée of Oyster Beignets were almost a... More

Me and my partner had a great dinner at Harrison's. Our meals were amazing with steak cooked to perfection and a delicious dessert. We appreciated and loved the complimentary amuse bouche, 2 types of freshly baked bread with whipped butter and palate cleanser before dessert. We thought that the service was fantastic and the atmosphere beautiful and liked that they... More
