Consistent, really good food

Really good Chinese. Anything with beef is simply yum. Great local produce. Value for money. Terrific view. Same owner for years. Locals love it!

The food was so fresh and delicious. Although late at night the outside eating area was still lovely with a cool breeze. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Everything from arrival to departure was more than I expected. The food was outstanding, different to what we have had previously but very very good. The drinks list was reasonable, the wine was...

Wanted to try the coconut crabs since it is a famous local delicacy and not easily available elsewhere. Called the restaurant and spoke to the owner and she confirmed they have live coconut crabs ( dead or frozen ones are useless for Chinese cooking ). It was well cooked and quite tasty although expensive. Service was good and washed down... More

We have been here several times, we had decided to go Thai, but to our dismay found it to be closed, so as we were so close, decided on Harbour View. The only problem I find with most Chinese Restaurants, HV as well, is the food is very salty. We would like the spicy dishes, hotter. The 2 spicy dishes... More

Having eaten at this restaurant 4 years ago we were keen to return with family and friends. We were not disappointed at all. The service was great and we all commented that the food was as good as we have eaten in a Chinese restaurant anywhere. Highly recommended
