This place just gets better and better. Having visited regularly over the years it is clear Harvest is now reaping the benefit of its new Sydney chef - who has succeeded in taking it to incredible new highs. Undoubtedly one of the top restaurants in the region. Staff were warm and friendly. We were so impressed with dinner on Saturday... More

We had lunch here today. It's in a beautiful old weatherboard home with most dining on the deck. We had booked and were escorted promptly to our table. We ordered drinks. My glass of wine of sav blanc came promptly but wasn't cold enough. My partners beer was forgotten until reminded. Staff were attentive but aloof. We shared some sour... More

This restaurant was recommended so was looking forward to eating at another 'Hatted' restaurant... Although the food was lovely, I was disappointed as when I had made the booking I had mentioned it was a 50th birthday dinner and at NO stage was the birthday even mentioned by staff :( AND it was even written on their computer next to...

Such an awesome place! We had one of the best coffees here and were awestruck by the orgasmic display of pastries and treats in the bakery section. The deli was also filled full of wonderful, tasty, exotic selections. So much character here; It has that comforting, wholesome vibe that you look for in a cafe experience and all the staff... More

Having enjoyed quite a few breakfast meals at Harvest I was quite excited to gain a reservation for dinner. We were placed on the verandah with the other diners near one of the bar heaters. Great verandah, nice view of Harvest deli and a tree with a floodlight shining onto its branches, background music provided by the trucks on the... More

Was told it was simply a 'must do' when we were holidaying in Byron Bay. Three adults went for lunch. We were lucky to get in with no booking. Lovely atmosphere with understated quality rustic atmosphere, a fantastic timber verandah and fireplace. But I was not there to eat the decor. My dish was a plate of wood fired vegetables... More

I went with a large family group. The waiter was lovely and attentive. The entree was served within a reasonable period of time however we waited at least 60 minutes for the mains. They put a rush on the children's meals but only when they had already commenced serving the adult mains. The children;s fish and chips was a bit... More
