Had the best cocktails at Harry's bar. Asian fusion is a must try - a flamed cocktail consisting of tanquray gin, infused with lemongrass tea leaves with ginger, cinnamon, orange and tonic water (and other amazing ingredients I've forgotten). The presentation done by Cebo is very entertaining! And the flavours are amazing. A must for anyone who appreciates flavour fusion... More

Dinner with friends was a pleasant experience. The food rated from very good (the duck), to so-so (the peri-peri chicken), to disappointing (“the trilogy of nuts” dessert). The restaurant used to pride itself on properly trained staff—after all, you are paying for a fine dining experience. Our waiter (very pleasant and jovial) could not explain all the options on the...

Harvey's offers a wonderful location that reminds me of street restaurants from the exciting cities of the world. The Chef is totally committed and very talented. This is first world dining in a crazy fun holiday town.

I have enjoyed Harvey's dining from all three of its premises over the years (Goble Road, Mitchell Park and now Umhlanga). The restaurant is great for entertaining clients, colleagues or family. A relatively short menu which covers most people's tastes enables easy selection. The food is always amazing (and well presented, if that is important for you). You do however... More

Had dinner with a friend at Harveys. Service was excellent, I feel terrible that I cannot remember our waiter's name. He was on-point, attentive without being overbearing. Food was very good and well-presented. My vegetarian dietary requirements were adequately catered for on their menu. Took advantage of the half-price cocktails. Overall, a really good dining experience. Would certainly recommend Harveys

Absolutely amazing! The food was delicious, the building was gorgeous and the service was phenomenal! Staff was very eager to help, friendly and great on recommendations. I had the cheese soufflé, the fish and a couple of their flaming drinks. I'd go back in an instant.
