When traveling south we always call in for our coffee fix at Harvest and am never disappointed in the excellent flavor, ambience and service. However we will not be returning for a meal. We celebrated a holiday lunch at Harvest and while the food was delicious the meal prices were exorbitant for the actual size of the servings. So while... More

Incredible cafe/restaurant with amazing staff, service, atmosphere, surroundings, and made-with-love food using the most impressive ingredients, all local and nutritious. Only around the corner is a stunning waterfall to relax at after a beautiful brunch here. Especially great for special occasions. Make sure you book. You are one of my all-time favourite restaurants Harvest thank you for being so amazing!

Worth the drive from Byron although there is not much else in the town. We were here for lunch and it was delicious. Great flavors, fresh and reasonably priced. Service was a bit inattentive but the venue itself was lovely. Recommended. Also worth checking out the shop next door if you like gourmet food. I found it a bit expensive... More

An exquisitely classy country dining experience. The produce is fresh, tasteful and nuanced. Great balance of flavors with attention to detail. The kingfish sashimi and oysters were absolutely perfect. For entrees we had the local fish (Spanish Mackerel) in a delicious seafood pancetta broth. The chocolate desert could have been darker and more bitter, but the cheese platter is a... More

We had a lovely casual lunch sitting out the front at a long bench. Great service, great food. Amazing bread! Tin of sardines with capers, fresh parsley and onion. Rillete of ocean trout and sourdough, terrine with picadelli and other amazing bread. Inside there is restaurant dining and deck out the back. Well worth a visit, just off the highway... More

I've been going to Harvest for at least the last 6 years on the recommendation of a foodie friend. 2-3 years ago the service fell away but I'm happy to report that in the last 12 months at least, things are back to previous levels. The setting is relaxing and they are very accommodating. Once on a return trip from... More

Great food and experience. There were 7 of us celebrating a good friends birthday. All of us enjoyed our food, the staff made the Occassion special. I will return and so will everyone at our table. How many times can you say, nobody complained about anything? And we were from Sydney!

We loved our dinner at Harvest! In such a beautiful setting, how could we not have the best dinner? We were a group of 6 and had an 8.30pm booking but didn't feel rushed at all. The slow-cooked lamb for two was stunning. We all couldn't stop stealing some because it was so good. The seafood gnocchi dish was uninspiring... More

Fabulous setting, almost like an old Australian farm house that allows you to sit in the comfort of the large dinning room but in great big chairs... Open view into the back yard and full view of all your food and beverages being made.... Perfect selection of teas and magnificent food.. Fresh and rich in taste.... Little hidden secret that...
