A group of work colleagues from the hospitality industry in Cairns visited Harrisons December 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas experience. Food was exceptional, along with service. We departed vowing to return when next in Port Douglas. When visiting with friends again this month, we were bitterly disappointed with food, pricing and service. To begin with our waiter A was...

Have been dining at Harrison's or it's predecessors for many years and have always felt that it offered something a little different. Certainly not fine dining, but an attempt to step up. So with that in mind I talked the place up to our friends and insisted we dine there. I have advised many people over the years to try... More

Have eaten here many times before, but this is the first (& possibly last) visit to the new look bistro h. Food was great; but the service was so poor no amount of great food would compensate. Really disappointing evening.

We eat out a lot and we found the food brilliant. From the stuffed Olives to the Parsnip dessert (yes Parsnip) the food was incredible. We found the restaurant on our last night and it will be first place we visit when we are back. Service was incredible and attentive.

This is the first week of their new menu and direction. The service was terrific with plenty of staff on hand. Our food was really tasty.

We were a party of 6, and booked a few days in advance. The restaurant has recently reconfigured itself as a bistro. Service was slow to begin with, as we ate early. The scheme of things is to order a mix of dishes from starters, share plates, sides and mains, which we did. Drinks were a little hit and miss... More

We visited the first night of their new menu and change of name. Our waiter was a little confused with the new menu but no matter because the food was divine. The Maitre D was superb and professional. Thoroughly enjoyed our Chateaubriand, our wine and dessert. Lovely ambience made it a special night for us in Port Douglas.

We have recently moved permanently to Port Douglas and have been working our way through the many great restaurants over the last few weeks. After yet another hard day's work on our house we decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal and chose Harrison's. Although we had holidayed in Port Douglas several times we had never eaten there. We... More

This is one of those places that looks amazing - very warm and cozy and upon looking at the menu on the street you will turn a blind eye on the prices because every now and then you are allowed to spoil yourself to a night out. However, don't make the mistake we did and keep walking - you will... More

Harrisons Restaurant exists in a setting that is made for romance and fun. The colonial style house and colourful gardens create a wonderful atmosphere for cocktails, romantic dinners and celebratory events. Food is skillfully created using produce that is always fresh and preferrably local. Spencer Patrick, owner of Harrisons, has navigated Harrisons as an award winning restaurant since it's inception in 2007. 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. Spencer's style draws from his training in classic French cuisine and love for all things English. His belief is that good food can be enjoyed any where in the world, but what better place to enjoy it than in Paradise!
