Very simply; you must visit! Called in on a Tuesday a few weeks ago when on holidays with my wife & daughter; along with bro & sis in-law. Long time since I've seen a rstaurant this busy outside of school hloidays on a Tuesday; that said something right from the start. Food selection was exeleent; and wine list comprehensive - and affordable. Newrybar is 50 metres off the main road & well worth the short diversion & stop. They also have a great deli next door. I'll be back! J;{-

I visited Harvest Cafe with a group of girlfriends and was impressed with the beautiful ambience of the residence that houses the very busy cafe. We had a lovely table on the shady verandah. The waitress who looked after our table was attentive, helpful and intutitive. Water was promptly refilled, wine glasses charged, special menu items were explained in common sense detail. I ordered the Salmon with smashed potatoes and was disappointed to discover the middle section was undercooked, (more the consisentency of smoked salmon). The vegetable accompanientments and jus were non-descript. 5 out of 5 for location, 5 out of 5 for ambience, 5 out of 5 for service, 3 out of 5 for food.

This restaurant needs some fine tuning and finesse. Firstly, it was one hour before we were served our meal. I ordered a whole NZ flounder that had been overly salted on the skin side to ensure crispness, but this method doesn't work on flat fish as there was no escaping the excessive salt in every bite. The fish was accompanied by two very small bowls - one containing cooked supermarket frozen fries, the other a few leaves of salad greens and a wedge of tomato. The fries and salad arrived several minutes before the fish. I had to eat most of the fries first as they were getting cold and limp. This is unacceptable. The desserts were nice enough, but a trio of chocolate morsels, including ice cream, came on a plate with only a spoon, making it difficult to eat. In other such restaurants a fork is included. The paper serviettes that were removed with our main meal were not replaced for our dessert course - another let down. There aren't any true desserts listed on the printed menu, the wait person tells you the desserts of the day, the same as we were read out the main meal specials. There are no prices stated, making it a lucky dip when you get the bill. This is unfair to patrons who must consider their outlay for a meal and too embarrassed to ask the price of an item. All up we found the meals and sevice rather pedestrian, which was disappointing. We have since spoken to others who have dined there, and all agree you must be prepared for a long wait to be served your meal. Potential lost for a return visit.

Harvest was recommend by friends to try out for lunch, we went for dinner and WOW. Awesome set up with their new deli next door and huge veggie patch to check out. Deli complete with cheese and meat room. The old house that the cafe is on has a huge wrap around balcony with great surroundings. The pork belly was probably the best we have tried (entree). Their selection of fish specials was mouth watering, I had the tuna. Succulent tuna steak cooked to perfection. Desert was sublime, apple fine tart with toffee and ice cream. "You have to see it to believe it"
All in all harvest was our last eat for a week in Byron and we definitely saved the best for last. Every time we come back to Byron or hear of friends going there we will be telling them about Harvest cafe. Ps. The prices were easily comparable to meal sizes and definitely taste.

Perfection is all I can say, from the friendly yet professional staff, to the beautiful surroundings and wonderful food. Do yourself a favour and book in for lunch; you wont regret it.
