“Great steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

The steak (ribeye) was great so on that basis I can recommend the resturant. It is however pretty pricey (very pricey in fact) and I am not sure the premium is really justified. It is more of a corporate place than somewhere for a family dinner.

“Amazing food, service and, patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The food was incredible. The oysters were amazing, and the steak was premium. The staff were very knowledgeable (they have a wine master on site for pairing advice) and we didn't have any questions that weren't fully unanswered.
I went with a recommendation from a friend of the owner's, so we joined her for a drink in the upstairs lounge. She was very delightful and we had a good talk about our mutual friend.
The outside patio would be incredible in the summer, but even at that, they lit the fireplace for us, and we enjoyed a glass of wine (or two) outside. It was very comfortable and warm.
I loved this place.

“Amazing service, great food, old school ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you are looking for " a cut above" steak then this place is perfect. The selection of food was incredible. The quality is impeccable and the only bad thing I can say is the portion was too big! The service was top notch. This is a true old school style steak house. Very expensive but worth it for a romantic night out.

“One of the best restaurants anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Our families favorite restaurant! From all the steaks and lobsters we tasted we always recall the ones of Harbour Sixty! The starters are of outstanding value; Amazing seafood salad (with more seafood than salad :p), lobster legs etc... For the main, we always have steaks which are always cook to the perfection as you ask them for and amazing side dishes such as onion rings, potato mass, cream spinach and my personal favorite macaroni and cheese! The dessert menu is vast with our family's' favorite chocolate soufle and white chocolate and coconut pie! ALTHOUGH before visiting the place you should take into concideration that the PRICES ARE HIGH! However the superb food is worth every penny. The atmosphere of the place is extraordinary fitting each customers wants; For gourmet dining, the scene is set indoors, and for a more relaxed and serene dinner the outside terrace is brilliant! Harbour Sixty, successfully combines atmosphere and food, providing the best possible 'fine dining' experience to the customer.

“EXPENSIVE EXCELLENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is without doubt one of the finest restaurants anywhere. The service is as close to perfection as one could want. They are always there, but never seen. You never want for anything. We were there the other night; patio seats which are beautiful, secluded and surrounded by palms, flowers and candles. We had Halibut and Sea Bass with 9.5/10 to each. Apple crumble for dessert was beyond words. Latte was warm and that was the only let down (dislike drinks that are supposed to be hot and come out warm) Regular coffee was superb. All in; a 9.75 out of 10 for this visit. Two of us no alcohol was $175.00 so up there but for 2.5 hours it was magic!
