We made the mistake of eating here twice. On the first night the entree of pork belly was Devine and we were excited for mains. Both of our steaks were chewy and swimming in enough sauce that it could be called soup. Although initially tasty, the sheer volume of sauce was overwhelming. It was inescapable, salty and left us very thirsty. Thinking that perhaps we had ordered badly, we went back a second time purely on the strength of the pork belly. Again, the entree was delicious: spicy, flavorsome crab dumplings. Our hope was renewed. The main of spatchcock was again, in a huge amount of sauce and the 'gnocchi' it came with were merely slices of potato. The prawn pasta, although better, was a confusing mix of lemon oil and olives. Service was poor. Do yourself a favor, order an entree then go up the road to dominos for a pizza.

We've been to Harvest Restaurant 3 times now and each and every time the food and service has been great. Our most recent visit was for New Years Eve for an early 6pm sitting. The food was lovely, and the set menu had more than enough choices to keep everyone happy. And our 8 year old son loved the pizza from the kids menu too. Our table was out the front so the added bonus was that we could the 8pm fireworks from our seat. We were in no way rushed through the courses (3, not including a gazpacho to start and yummy sorbet between entree and main), timing was perfect. Our waitress was excellent. All in a year a great place to enjoy fresh, seasonal, beautifully presented food. Defitely our favourite restaurant in Coolum, we'll be back.

We've eaten here on a number of visits to Coolum and it is consistently good. Good selection of entrees and mains. The prawn pappardelle is yummy and the kids pasta was fresh and delicious - not usual packaged fod often served up at places. Good and well priced wine list. Friendly, efficient staff. Always busy so book ahead.

We (couple) booked Harvest very late one evening over the Xmas Break.

On arrival our table wasn't ready as the previous people were still finishing their meal. They explained exactly this and we were still able to sit down, order a drink and a little bite to eat while we waited. No complaints at all !

The meal (all 3 courses) was beautiful and the desert was the highlight - chocolate and caramel brownie, with crunch and vanilla bean ice-cream.

The evening flowed and the service was great. The restaurant was full to capacity however this did not affect the service. We were one of the last ot leave however we were not rushed out.

Excellent Evening!
