We had a lovely dinner there for our anniversary. Great food and service. Love the decor. Wasn't the best place for a function for lots of people where there is a speaker, but that was a space and sound thing, rather than a service and food problem.

We ate at Harvey's last Saturday and were sadly disappointed.
My sister who lives in Durban treated us to dinner here.
Food was at best average but the price tag not.
Service was unatentive and we even saw a lady try to take my sisters purse while waiting for the washroom who was not a patron but the staff did nothing.
All in all cold Steaks, peppery fish and no value proposition sorry Harvey's but your standards have lapsed a great deal since we were last there

There's not enough words to describe the wonderful experience that Harvey's present to all the senses....a beautifully opulent space with character and charm. A relaxed atmosphere with infinite attention to detail.....all that before I even get to mention the service and the food! Oh the food the glorious food! The menu offers a beautiful tapestry of inventive and exciting choices, one can not resist wanting to try everything! The service in a nutshell: fantastic! This is, simply said: the best restaurant in South Africa!

This was a really lovely evening. Very warm and professional service from the staff. EXCELLENT food. Lovely wine, and all in all - a super evening. Not for the financially faint-hearted, but then... a safe bet if you're wanting a'successful' time. Very nice to be at an upmarket, boutique type of environment - not in a mass-numbers hotel chain place. Nice venue/location. We'll certainly go back a couple of times a year if we can.

I could have opted for a number of items on the menu but chose the pork belly sandwich - it was completely delicious. I could have licked the plate. Also good wine by the glass. Just a rather odd young waiter.
