Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We dined indulgently last night with two friends as a “thank you” for helping us out recently. Hadn’t been to Harry’s for many years, and it’s as good as, if not better than it’s ever been. Minor inconvenience with flying insects was handled thoughtfully. Great...menu! Our choices when delivered matched expectations, terrine, octopus, goat cheese salad, sirloin, pork, quail and kingfish…delicious. Succumbed to temptation and ordered chocolate cremeux dessert. Staff pleasant, friendly and professional. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you, Harry’s!More

What a lovely birthday lunch we had for my husbands 80th. The food was so good, tasty and beautifully presented. Harry's never disappoints so we chose to go there because it was a special day with family visiting from the UK for the occasion.

Our first visit to Harry’s on Buderim but it won’t be our last! My husband and I both had the steak and it was beautifully cooked as requested. Desserts were delicious and a bit different and the meal was capped off with great coffee. It...was cool last night so I was glad we had requested the fire room on a night that was fully booked. On a warmer night or for lunch, I would be happy to dine on the verandah looking out towards the rainforest.More

Harry's was always our 'go to' for fine dining. Not any more. We were very disappointed in the service and the food. Can't blame the waitress, it must have been her first day. After promising a classic margarita ($25) with a slice of fresh lime,...I received a half-salted glass with a slice of dehydrated citrus. The drink was slopped onto the tray, then apologetically removed and brought back with a slice of fresh lime, and slopped onto the table. ( my $25 was reduced by about $5 by this stage), What was left was warm and OK... not great. My husbands medium rare steak ($50) came in two pieces....why?...and overdone. His entree and main were supposed to have two different purees, parsnip for one and leek the other. Both were the same? Can't complain about my pork belly, it was good. Generally tho' the experience was less than satisfying. There was unexpected drama. On the far side of the grass, near the forest, there seemed to be the farewell to a pet cat going on. I suspect it was being euthanased. Probably not recommended viewing for lunchers.More

Visited Harry's for dinner on a Saturday evening. We normally visit for lunch so this was a little different, and pleasantly so. Duet of pork was delicious, as was the barramundi. Greens and potato as sides were generous; we could both have happily had the...kipflers as a main course :) We have a very big soft spot for Harry's as we held our wedding reception there (20 years ago) but they keep on serving up wonderful food with excellent service.More

The food was good, though somewhat overpriced, the wait staff was predominantly young women, who in our opinion still need quite a bit more training in the art of service for an a la carte restaurant, as the service let the dining experience down somewhat,...unfortunately for us we probably wont be retuning for awhile, which is a shame as we have been visiting it for 25+ yearsMore

The fare was mediocre and it was difficult for us to understand why the restaurant has the rating it has. We were seated in the outside section with a dirty weather screen right against the table. We will definitely not be recommending Harry’s to anyone

The house is beautiful and has so much potential to deliver an awesome dining experience. This is a pricey so called fine dining experience. Unfortunately Harry has forgotten that he is in the hospitality industry. We booked and were placed under the AC, we asked...to be moved to one of the 3 other vacant tables. They said they couldn’t help because they were under staffed. Not sure how the maths works on this as the staff member could have just served us at the other table a few metres away. Even when the next table from us became vacant, with no further customers attending, they did not offer to move us. I ordered a bottle of wine, after the initial glass was poured it was self service from there. If we weren’t freezing our asses off we might have had another drink and ordered desert. It’s not the AC that upset me, it’s the lack of hospitality. Would not return, there are much better options.More

We took 22 family and friends here for my husband's 60th birthday. The food was amazing and the chocolate strawberry mousse cake outstanding. Chef Stuart is passionate about sourcing local ingredients and creating a varied menu, catering for everyone's needs, but also matching the menu...to the beautiful ambience of the building. We had a couple of vegetarian guests and their menu choices were equally impressive. Zoe was assigned to look after us and did a fabulous job. Thank you to Stuart, Taula, Zoe and the team for helping to make this such a memorable event: we will definitely be back!More

A MUST in any Sunny Coast holiday. The service was attentive, the food delicious. The lamb was a stand out - tender and generous. The duck was also very tender for breast. The fish and beetroot was also enjoyed. Really not to be missed. No...champagne on the wine list but a couple of bottles were found on request. A crowd pleaser. Ask for the private dining room if you have a group.More

Harry’s has garnered a reputation over the years as one of Sunshine Coast’s top restaurants & it certainly delivered for us. We came for my mum’s 70th birthday & the service, the food (kudos to chef Stuart Bell), the atmosphere & setting were all exquisite....We were offered a complimentary tasting plate to share with our drinks as well as a complimentary selection of tropical sorbets for dessert in honour of mum’s special day. We ordered the Coral Coast Saltwater Barramundi (mum), the Charred lamb rump (dad) and the duet of Pork Loin & Crispy Belly and all were sensational with a side of greens & crispy kipfler potatoes. The cottage setting surrounding lush Buderim Forest with outside terrace is impossible to emulate. We can’t wait to go back.More

High expectations based on reviews and promise of 2 hat chef. Service was very friendly but not professionally skilled. Food was good but not amazing, a bit old school and average. Duck chewy and pork overcooked. Day we visited we sat on deck with blinds...down. Drab. Place lacked atmosphere and ambiance. Overall a bit outdated and lacks finesse. Expect a cafe bistro rather than a 5 star restaurant and you might not be disappointed.More

We can't speak more highly of Harry's on Buderim for the exceptional service/food and venue they provided for my late mother's Memorial Lunch on the wettest coldest day in Buderim. From the start booking was easy with no ridiculous deposit and room charges. We had...a family group of 18 and Lisa and her Team never pressured us over numbers leaving it to the day before to lock in numbers. Weather was terrible on the day and not everything could run to schedule as roads were closed locally but nothing phased the staff with late guests. Zoe took care of our room and was just so professional and accommodating. Room was dressed beautifully and we just added our own special table with Mums Ashes. Food and service were absolutely top notch. We had 2 Course Set Menu and variety and food delicious. 2 Children also accommodated. It was an emotional day but the Team from Harry's just made it all happen for us. My family and in particular my father was overwhelmed at how well the day went. We would highly recommend Harry's on Buderim for any special event. Just the perfect day. Thank youMore
