It was wet when we went and very quiet but the food was great.... Surprised it wasn't busier but staff did say they were flat out at lunch - they have a open deck area overlooking the greens which would be fantastic during the day.

We had dinner here on a very hot day. First thing we saw as we walked in was the dirty floor covered with dust and dry leaves, next was the large dirty mirror at the head of our table. The restaurant felt stuffy, dusty and just unfresh. It was a very hot day as mentioned earlier, we were sitting inside,... More

Late review as we dined in May for my birthday. Restaurant decor is beautiful and very attentive staff. Had the five course tasting menu and chose a bottle of wine from the wine list to share. Every course was amazing, we were so happy with the evening. Was reasonably priced, especially compared to other restaurants in the Pokolbin area. Can't... More

However was not asked if we wanted to sit inside considering the heat. There was only 2 occupied tables at the time when we arrived and... More

We came for lunch, arriving about 11.30am . We didn't realise the restaurant didn't open until midday. The kitchen staff shut the door without saying anything, and when we found a waitress she rudely said the restaurant was closed. When we asked what time it opened she said 'later, not now' and turned her back without another word. We left.... More

Came here for dinner with friends on a saturday night. The food was lovely. The amuse bouche was nothing to write home about (watermelon and goats cheese). The scallops for entree were lovely, my friend had the beef carpaccio which he said was nice. My husband thought the pork belly was a little dry. The mains were nice (had the... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant mid-week lunch here at Harvest. We had the tasting menu - 4 small courses ($59pp) with matching wines ($69). The roasted root vegetable salad and the nigella crusted lamb were our favourites but the other dishes were also lovely. The dining space has a minimalist feel to it with great views out... More

The Harvest is almost opposite the Pokolbin Village on Broke Road making it a convenient venue. The Hope Estate has developed greatly over the past few years hosting concerts and the like. The restaurant itself is on the upper deck of the Hope main building but protected from the elements with plastic sheeting. In summer it would be a joy... More
