This was our 5th. Time there and we love it. Our first visit was 2009 and whenever we are close by (we come from Melbourne) we make an effort to go. Yesterday was to celebrate my husbands birthday, we were pleased to be close by so we could have our celebration at Harvest.

We had a later reservation being 1.45. The flavour of everything was great however we shared the Lamb and it was a bit dry, the potatoes were also quite hard so some of them and were quite tricky to chew through. The service was great and drinks were good.

I was a little bit disappointed the menu was overly complex I have been in the past and was much more satisfied

Waitress staff were too busy to offer any kind of decent service. Quite rude and unorganised really. Food is over rated... I won’t be coming back. This place is incredibly over rated

We had great expectations and was bitterly disappointing. They said it was a forager meal and venison does not exist in area. It was tasteless and over cooked. Not fresh but frozen. The wine tasted like cordial

Excellent lunch. Pepper and salt were requested but the request forgotten. Second request produced the pepper and salt, but the meal was half finished by then. Otherwise, a very enjoyable dining experience

This was one of the most memorable meals I have ever had! We shared the Tasmanian trout and I am still talking about it! Shared a magnificent Riesling. Would go back anytime! Service was excellent and friendly helpful staff. What more can I say?

We had a fabulous Italian waitress , who made our first time to harvest very pleasant. And the food was exceptional , our chefs for the night should be very proud of what they served. Thank you we will tell everyone and be back.

Enjoyed our lunch. The food was excellent and the wine list was significantly better than the last time were there. On that occasion it consisted mainly of wines from the local region which were basically poor. Almost didn’t go back but glad we did.

Wonderful dining experience!
Came here on a date with my boyfriend, we had the 5 course set menu which was divine.
The food was fresh and different!
The staff were all so lovely and any questions we had about the menu they answered.

We will definitely come back.

We'd heard about this wonderful restaurant at Newrybar for a while so it was wonderful to finally try it.
The food was wonderful, the service outstanding and to sit in front of the fire with a coffee on a cool drizzly day was the stuff of dreams when you're a Queenslander with no winter to speak of!
Highly recommend

Beautiful food, amazed and delighted by the wild harvest forgaing concept and the food was simply amazing.
Wine choice was an issue on the night we dined, limited to a few varieties and seemingly the most expensive bottles as a result of a shipment not arriving. Which was a bit of a shame.

Recommend a pre meal cocktail at the bar before moving to the dining room to indulge in the meal for two with two sides accompanied by wine recommended by the wait team. Delicious.

We went to Harvest over weekend for breakfast. Service started well but after our meals came the waitress went looking for salt and pepper but never returned, then had to ask another waitress re the side dish that was missing.
Overall food was good but not great

Fabulous dining experience! All ingredients on the dinner menu are sourced locally. The wait staff had a thorough knowledge of each dish. The 5 course menu was divine, a perfect balance of flavours. Would definitely recommend 'Harvest' to anyone who appreciates fine dining and food with a difference. Possibly suited more to an adults pallette just because of the complexity and use of the ingredients. Compliments to the chef!!

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

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.
