Harvey's Bistro is a must for all who are looking to enjoy a friendly and relaxed dining experience, in an oasis amidst the hustle of James Street.

seated inside or out, you can't help but feel you're an extension of the lush foliage that wraps itself around the venue.

Meals always offer balanced flavours and often unexpected combinations that never fail to satisfy.

Staff are genuinely friendly and attentive, never pushy or too busy for a friendly chat.

Whether you enjoy a meal in their outdoor dining area or drinks from their extensive wine and cocktails list,
your visit to Harvey's Bistro won't be your last.

Located in the river the view is lovely and it has a great vibe. The menu does not have a huge variety but the meals were fine. What lets the restaurant down is the service. We only received one menu and when we asked for another one, they said no more were available and then they produced another 5 minutes later. We just seemed to always be flagging waiters down and trying to get their attention. Plus they have an app to order your own food, so they were a bit put out when we opted for face to face ordering. We even almost collided with a waiter carrying plates on the way out.

The food was good, but expensive. There was no menu available online, so we couldn’t see beforehand how much anything was. $53 for two smallish breakfasts and two coffees is pretty steep, even for James Street. The service was average, we waited a long time for coffees to arrive.
Nice place but overhyped, I wouldn’t eat there again.

We celebrated Father's day at Harveys....
Our group ranged from 3yrs - 83 yrs old and everyone was catered for brilliantly, including a walker and wheelchair.
Harveys is always welcoming... the menu is fabulous and the wait staff are wonderful.
All our meals were fabulous from the ever popular Chicken salad to my delectable Quail and lentil dish..
Thanks PJ and your team for a memorable day
