We ate here one night with our kids and were seated outside under the lights. The food was very innovative and tasty. My husband had tried kangaroo meat as well and was cooked with perfection. There's no rush to push us out at all; could have sat all night under the stars if we wanted to. It's a very romantic... More

Two of the entrees were very good but the mains were disappointing & certainly not worth the price compared to other good restaurants in Port Douglas. The members of our group who had coffees to finish were particularly disappointed. None of our group,... More

The staff here are great, my wife had a cocktail and I had a beer on the upper deck overlooking the park and inlet. A really nice hotel that also does meals although we did not eat in.

Had dinner here with a large group, the food was great, there was also a nice slow cooked lamb and an interesting entree (crispy fried pig's ears).

This was our second visit to Harrison's, we chose it as we wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing and last time the food was great. The evening didnt get off to a great start as the wine we chose wasn't available, neither was our 2nd choice in the end we had to go for a more expensive wine and we were... More

Yes, we ate here twice in a week and were only sorry that we did not have enough time to go again. The service was excellent, the food delicious and inventive, and the setting lovely. I just don't understand why Harrison's isn't more highly rated by Trip Advisor reviewers (#17 of 74 at the time of writing) than it is.... More

Betel leaf, smoked coral trout, coconut, grapefruit, chilli. Malt Roasted Scallops Sweetbreads, gingerbread, raisins, sweet & sour radish. Crisp pig’s ears, spiced apple. Main of smoked kangaroo which had been suveed then smoked ....best interpretation of kangaroo I've ever eaten...so tender. The only thing better than the imagination behind the menu was the application of flavours. Truly amazing food. Some... More

Harrisons has consistently held national accolades for it's food and wine and stands alone as Port Douglas' only One Hat rated restaurant in the QLD Good Food Guide.
