Very good...but has potential to be better

Harvey's Restaurant is situated in prime Umhlanga location. It is fortunate to occupy a large space and have comfortable spacing between the seats. I had a very enjoyable meal there and will most likely return again even though the prices are quite high. I do, however, think that for a fine dining... read more

Service 10/10 efficient but unobtrusive Food 10/10 try the Wild filed mushroom risotto with asparagus and deep fried leeks with a balsamic hollandaise and roasted hazelnuts! Or try the sorbet - strawberry, basil and cracked black pepper! Delicious Flavours and textures! Ambiance 10/10

Atmosphere was perfect including nice soft music. Service was great and meals were served within reasonable time from placing an order. Food was tasty and different.

Attended a friend's birthday celebration at Harveys. The decor and ambience are excellent. The lighting is just perfect! However the food is very pricey for the tiny portions you get served. Though such fine dining places charge over and above most other restaurants, I missed to taste the good and unique food. The food presentations are really intresting and good... More

My Brother-in-law is down in Umhlanga for a few days and invited our family to join them at Harvey's. I've wanted to go to Harvey's since they were situated near Michell Park on the Berea but it was always a little too costly for us to justify the expense. Well, I'm afraid either we arrived on an off day (Friday... More

Tried this place little over 2 months ago. Definitely not in the arsenal of fine dining, which I think is not fully understood in Durban as there are no fine dining establishments in Durban/KZN other than Hartford House. The theme is quite abstract which creates a draw card to the eye. That's about where it ends. The service started off... More

I booked supper at this restaurant well in advance for the tasting menu available on their website. I called persistently to confirm the reservation and was always told that someone would get back to me to confirm the tasting menu, but nobody did. On my 4th attempt at getting hold of them, the day before the birthday dinner, I was... More

The menu is extensive & innovative. The service was good. The food was pricey but delicious and superbly presented. Do not sit in the lower section near the street as it is covered by a tarpaulin and the shopping centre's air conditioners are so noisy that they completely spoil the ambience. Other than that its worth a visit just for... More

Check your facts. Compare the address with the map you supply. They do not match.; Harveys has always had excellent food, at whatever address they have been..

Excellent food. Great interior. Waiter below par for an expensive restaurant and a good establishment. Line fish of the day (Tuna) was superb. The Harvey chocolate special for desert was excellent.
