Well presented food with a great selection of ingredients but I couldn’t seem to get flavour from any of the meals. I’m afraid it’s over rated and fine dinning take on a cafe style food. Some wait staff look down their noses at you and it’s a bit wanky really. The explaining of ingredients at Olympic lightening speed does nothing but make the food go cold. I’ve worked in five start establishments and hotels and leading resort of the world and really take the pretension out of the style and it might be more about the food. Too expensive !!!!

Highly recommend visiting this place if you’ve never been! The pandanas cocktail was unbelievable and the food was so fresh and tasty! The lamb for two could definitely serve 4 others ☺️

Waitress very curt. Clearly did not want to be there!! When we asked about a menu option we were basically told to ‘wait ... I’ll get to that’!! Extremely expensive for portions and menu choices

Harvest should be an example to what has been lost in other service areas on the Far North Coast. Clever talented food menu, great wine, good genuine service, happy team. My partner and I go every two years or so, it is expensive for most of us. A true culinary experience rather than just siting to eat, we always are happy here and really want to just keep eating and drinking which I guess is what a Restaurant should be about. At every course I sent my sister a photo to make her jealous, (she didn't come). So five stars from us and keep up the good food and wine.

I was really looking forward to spending my wedding anniversary at Harvest as I have been there previously for lunch and it was amazing.

As usual the place is lovely, beautiful setting and decor. Service is great, and food was super tasty and enjoyable....

However, my husband and I were having such a lovely night until the sun went down.

That is when we got eaten by mosquitoes. We had just started eating when we started noticing the amount of mosquitoes. Really ruined eating having to swat them the whole time. We got eaten alive!!

When we asked what could be done about them, we were given an oily citronella to rub on to our legs and arms. Not a fan of these, but was super desperate to get rid of the mossies so I could enjoy my dinner. All I could smell was this was the rest of the night and felt quite greasy.

Completely ruined our dinner in that we rushed through just so we could get out of there!!!

I would have stayed to have dessert and a nightcap, but there was just no way.

Really disappointing. It is not a cheap meal where you can brush it off. You go there to spend money and have a wonderful experience. This was not the case for us in these circumstances.

Would definitely NOT go back of a nighttime. I would recommend only going during the day if you want to enjoy your meal.

A great food experience in relaxed surrounds! Loved the use of native and local ingredients to present unique combinations of flavours and textures!
Waitresses friendly and professional but spiel a little rushed and rehearsed ( sorry meant to be constructive criticism)

The flavours were definitely there and the food was nice.
