We just loved this place. Fresh food - great staff - great atmosphere. The lamb (for two) was huge! and so tender.

Service was nice and the waiters were very friendly and easy to deal with, but unfortunately the food was horrible. Most of the dishes were close to not being edible and the prices being charged for what was served up was disgraceful. I definitely would not recommend harvest to anyone, I felt robbed after I had left for the amount I payed and what I got, it was a stain on an otherwise good weekend at Byron. Will not be back

They champion local ingredients in a paddock to the plate way.
Thoroughly recommend the matching wine option as Sommelier Sam does a remarkable job with some really spot on and interesting matches.
Great value for both day and evening occasions....did I mention the bread?

As a group of four, we ate at Harvest two years ago, and the food was outstanding, five stars all around. We ate there again as a group of four a few days ago, and while the food was good, all agreed it wasn't outstanding this time, especially for the cost.

It’s quite difficult to find a restaurant that offers impeccable food, fabulous wait staff and great ambience. This is what you experience at Harvest - the attention to detail, the quality and creativity of the food is extraordinarily.

The ambience was lovely. Quaint setting. The food was very disappointing. The Jerusalem artichokes were inedible, the fish very ordinary and over salted, side dishes underwhelming. The smoked flavor was overused in too many dishes and was overwhelming. We waited a long time when we needed service and to get the bill. Poor value for money. Better to just visit the deli and bakery.

What an experience. It starts with the most amazing bread ever created. Vegetables are elevated with such care and flavour. Really enjoyed the unique flavour combinations. Staff are so friendly, as well as the bakers and chefs.

Harvest just gets better and better. It literally is like some Alice in Wonderland trapdoor you walk through and come out in this wonderful, relaxed place where time is suspended and you can focus on those you are with and the amazing food. The service is outstanding and the presentation and descriptions of the food strikes just the right note. It is as if the ingredients had sat at the table with you and welcomed you into their home. Without doubt a must that everyone should include on a Norther Rivers tour.

With a lot of excitement prior to visiting Harvest, sadly me and my partner left disappointed from the set menu offered on Friday night, We left hungry and felt there was a lot lacking.
The venue is beautiful and the wait staff are very nice but for us it wasn’t worth the trip out of Byron

Interesting local flavours in a serene setting. Staff who are there when you need them and know not to interrupt the flow of conversation when you don't (which is sadly rare).

Our entrees were fabulous. He had the oysters, I had the pulled lamb salad. Highly recommend both, they were delicious.
Service was second to none. The wait staff were attentive and friendly and made sure our drinks were consistently filled.
Unfortunately, the main course was a let-down. He had the beef brisket which turned out to be a very poorly constructed hamburger with a horrible burnt balsamic dressing, I had the eye fillet steak which was a big grisly piece of scotch fillet - the sauce was nice and it was cooked medium rare as asked for, but it was a terrible cut of meat.
We ordered the side of greens which turned out to be a big bowl of lettuce. We were expecting something a little more substantial such as green beans or the like to accompany steak/beef. You couldn't even call it a salad as it didn't consist of anything but dressed lettuce. The dressing was tasty though.
All in all it was (sadly) a disappointing meal for our anniversary. We had high hopes due to our entrees and service being so spectacular, but unfortunately the mains were a huge disappointment and not worth the price paid.

Food was delicious and service was outstanding, as always. Such a gorgeous location and nice to see the restaurant doing well in these tough times. Only ‘complaint’ was that the main fish dish also contained pork - not great for hungry pescatarians!

A most enjoyable day.
Surprisingly the dessert menu was disappointing.
However the Restaruant is never disappointing, we have celebrated 4 family members Birthdays And a couple of casual drop ins and never disappointed.

Really loved this dining experience. Wonderful. My only negative comment is that I didn’t appreciate surrounding tables and chairs being removed while we were still dining. Admittedly we were having a late lunch but it does make you feel rushed.
