This is a large restaurant and it was all but empty on a Saturday night, which should have had alarm bells ringing from the start. The staff, although polite and friendly were pretty clueless but there is also nothing I hate more than being told that what I have choosen to eat and drink, is not available! Drives me insane...

I recently had an anniversary dinner with my family at the resturant and I found that the service from the staff was most satisfying. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was super. I will definitely be going back for the creme brulee. On the down side I found that the wine supply needs to be replenished as... More

Hubby chose this one as he thought that it was a revival of Harvey's in Durban where food was exquisite. However unless the chefs are different this Harvey's was a slight disappointment . For starters I chose the mussel chowder - it came with 2 small pieces of toast which was disappointing as the starter was much bigger. The chowder... More

I had my birthday dinner there and I must say that the restaurant lived up to my expectations. Prices are high, but so is the quality

If this restaurant is still open when you visit Umhlanga, please go there as while the menu is not as large as other options, and the wine is about 30% moire expensive as is offewred block away, the food is really worth going there even if, on a Month-end Friday night you are sitting in a 100 seater, with 6...

The venue is very well placed with plenty of parking in the centre. It is surprisingly large it looks small from the entrance. We had a delightful meal, my friend had snails for starters and then a steak very well cooked and I must say the presentation was 'haute cuisine' myself I had small rib steak on the bone also...

I decided to have a business lunch here. A decision I regret considering the plethora of choice in Umhlanga. The restaurant was all but deserted. The decor tatty and in serious need of a revamp. My waiter's knowledge of the menu was limited and he had to dash off several times to to get answers to my queries regarding the... More

Went to Harvey's for dinner last night with a group of friends. We ordered the potato and leek soup and arancini for starters, both were extremely underwhelming! The melanzane was a horribly small portion and quite bland. Overall quality and portion sizes were not appropriate for the price of each dish. We don't mind paying a little extra for great... More

Popped into Harveys for a quick bite. The waitron didn't know what craft beers they had (also didn't know that they are listed in the drinks menu). When asked about the calamari she didn't have a clue and asked us to show her it on the menu. The complimentary bread was stale. We ordered the tempura prawns which were good.... More

Went for a special occasion.It was NOT fine dining. No table overlays, salt served in a glass grinder as bought from shop, wine cellar was hot as the aircon was out of order. Rib-eye was definitely not Rib-eye steak. Just a very disappointing experience. First and definitely last visit
