Visit Harvest for a long lunch on the cool verandah, sample the bespoke weekly changing Wild Harvest menu at night (which is created after a day foraging in the Hinterland) or enjoy a traditional country breakfast at the weekend.
Harvest has received multiple accolades over the years including a hat in the Good Food Guide 2019 and Best Small List (50 Wines) by Gourmet Traveller Wine 2018.
Opted for the 5 course menu.. it is supposed to be the speciality dishes of the house. There was nothing special in any of the dishes.. -except for the tea actually - there was a lack of taste , even though you can tell the ingredients are really fresh.
also the loud large group table didn’t help and the fact that nobody cared when I practically left my desert untouched .
there are smalldetails that you can’t avoid paying attention to.. cutlery on the table without a place mat/ table cloth
Always reliably outstanding food and service. A Sunday lunch delight
Words cannot describe the very pretentious and under whelming food. At no point did the menu allude to the fact that the lamb main was actually a dry pulled lamb breaded pattie. That was the start and the rest did not improve.
This restaurant is something special. Fairy lights, a roaring fire, a closed in verandah in the Queenslander style—this is an impossibly romantic and rustic space. Great drinks list with innovative cocktails and some obscure but delicious wines on offer. The food was absolutely scrumptious. Mahi mahi crumpets with fresh horseradish, just divine and perfectly balanced. Sourdough from the 100 plus year old wood fired oven with freshly churned, local butter—yummy. We loved our time at Harvest.
A wonderful place for a special event as we were. We will certainly return when next in the area. Thank you.
Food was amazing! Outstanding staff!
We both tried new and wonderful foods and dared to experience something out of the ordinary. Thank you for sharing something special about everything endemic to the area.
We were very disappointed with the selection and quality of wines available. Three of our party were disappointed with the quality of the meals offered. Whilst kangaroo is expected to be a little tough, this was difficult to eat at all. The sardines were swamped in a jus that resulted in us losing the flavour of the fish.
However the Mushroom Ceviche and Grilled Barramundi were excellent meals and generous in portions.
Staff were very attentive and well informed of menu offerings
Harvest had been recommended to us as being a fantastic dining experience.
Coming from melbourne, we are used to great restaurants and so we were very much looking forward to this.
It was disappointing. Menu was limited, and sounded so much better than the result.
Nothing any of my friends could
The food was of a high quality but ( and we don’t mind paying top prices for a great experience) was uninspiring. The ‘crudités ‘ entree was no more than a platter of carrot, radish with a dressing.
Have been a diner at Harvest for 10 years. What has happened? Disappointed by automated booking system and felt stalked by the number of emails and several texts including one at 5am which woke us. Disappointed with the food - we have experienced far better before and with the service and presentation. We would most likely not go back and we took good friends which had never been and they said they would also not return. There was nothing memorable on the menu.
Amazing flavours and a cracking wine list
Food was delish, great wine pairings and staff were friendly and professional
We really enjoyed our breakfast. A small select menu with a good variety. We had hoped to dine here for dinner but unfortunately restaurant was booked out on line. Only negative with our experience was that we ordered a second round of coffee's (the coffee is fantastic) & it never arrived. Overall a lovely experience situated in a quaint little town.
Fabulous food ! Some places try too hard, Harvest gets it just right. The tomato salad is outstanding and not to be missed!
Interesting food, beautifully prepared and presented. Great attentive service in a lovely setting. Third visit over a number of years and will be back again.

Harvest is an amazing restaurant with a deli and bakery open now too to feed everyone wanting to try this amazing place. Gorgeous settings and views with food showcasing the fresh local produce and colours and flavours of the area. Cannot wait for my next visit.
The slow cooked lamb shoulder is a MUST!! Very Very Happy I got to experience this "talked about" cafe...CaNT WAIT FOR MY NEXT VISIT
Second time we have held a small family occasion here. Ideal for all age groups. Food is excellent and flexible for sharing, mix and match of meals
Service charming and setting even nicer at lunch - indoor/outdoor feel/ ambience and village location
It's always a pleasure to dine at Harvest
This was some of the most interesting food I have ever eaten, not to mention absolutely delicious.
Fantastic place that made our birthday weekend a smash hit! The staff are exceptional and it is easy to see why this establishment wins so many accolades! Thanks guys
Great showcase of local food!
We had a beautiful lunch at harvest. The ceviche was a highlight! The service was prompt and attentive, would highly recommend Harvest
We both had to ask 3 times for a top up of wine.
Food served without utensils.
No salt Pepper offered.
Potatoes rock hard
Overall disappointing as this is the third time we had been and first time below expectation.
The food was fantastic, BUT, portion sizes are very small - table of 5 and spent over $400 on lunch, and left hungry. I probably wouldn’t go back.
A nice special occasion dining experience food and service was good but make sure your credit card is clear
Service was slow and not well managed. Food was too fussy and not particularly tasty. The “keep it simple stupid” has not been understood here. Even a simple thing as a fresh salad lacked lift and the right seasoning. A disappointing experience.. Good wine list though..
Great opportunity to try some challenging and unique native Australian ingredients. Lovely outdoor seating with open kitchen. Friendly staff. Only negative would be portion sizes. We had the 7 course tasting menu and there was too much food. So much so that we couldn’t really enjoy the final 2 to 3 courses.
Beuatiful scenery, helpful waitstaff and the food was divine. So fresh and delicious and love that the salads and herbs were grown on-site.
Well & truely worth the short trip out of town. We visited last night. The food was exquisite and the service was outstanding. Incredible effort for the kitchen & the staff to learn new menus every week so that patrons can experience the freshest local produce. Can’t wait to get back!!!!
We love this restaurant, the food and service has always been exceptional, the waiting staff are friendly and knowledgeable (without being stuck up or pretentious).
The location is perfect with the dining area looking out over the vegetable gardens and beautiful northern New South Wales countryside.
Had agreat experience went for dinner love the restaurant outlook love their cocktails
We went with the seasonal foraged menu loved it
Fantastic food, ambience, and service. Perfect place to wile away the morning, afternoon, or evening. I’d be here every weekend if I lived closer.
We were disappointed in the degustation with matching wines.
Lamb main was dry, desert wasn’t nice at all.
We were expecting so much more, considering the prices.
Some ingredients on the plate were there for show but unnecessary and unpleasant.
Just because something is edible, doesn’t mean it compliments a dish.
Overpriced and very overrated in our opinion sorry.
Service was good and staff were great though.
Dined on a Sunday evening and selected the Wild Harvest 5 course option. The restaurant was reasonably quiet & we believe this contributed to rushed service where we felt it was more about pushing through the courses rather providing us with a quality dining experience. Two of the courses could not be defined as of high quality. This was disappointing especially considering the $200 + bill. We had previously enjoyed several excellent al a carte lunches & dinners at this venue.
We really enjoyed our visit to Harvest! The Spanish waitress was informative and lovely to chat to, the humble green salad was super fresh and full of interesting leaves from the garden, all the dishes that we tried were full of flavour and generously presented. The Foxies Farm pasture raised chicken was amazing!!!! A standout shared dish for 2 although could have been smaller and more affordable, there was enough for 3 people.
We went on a recommendation from friends and were certainly not disappointed! Had the warm olives and pulled lamb for starters, followed by kangaroo loins. The food was really exceptional and memorable. I would suggest a steak knife comes with the kangaroo dish. We would absolutely go again! Highly recommend!
One of the best meals I have ever had. I have eaten all over the world, this occasion was in my top 3 restaurant experiences of all time. I cannot decide a #1 yet!
The food was adventurous & unique. We had the 7 course dégustation, which I highly recommend. Our kids loved their kids meals.
The wine was organic and tasted amazing.
Finally, staff were excellent, the GM was fantastic & really made our kids welcome.
The Scottish chef was a character and greeted us at our table. 5 stars!
Just an amazing experience, staff, food everything was perfect. One of the best restaurant meals we have ever had!!
Fantastic value, awesome service. Great location and ambience
