The food and service here were excellent and highly recommended. However, there is no beer on the drinks menu and the cheapest bottle of wine was £40 and up to over £100. Whilst I don't drink, this killed it for my partner as he felt this was a rip-off. We normally dine out as a party of 8, and with... More

We had a great meal and exceptional service for Saturday Dinner at Harris's Restaurant on our first trip to Penzance. The fish was excellent and fresh from the sea. Matched with a delightful bottle of 2014 Muscadet and in-house ice cream to finish a great meal.

Husband's birthday meal. This is a well established fine dining restaurant with no pretentious. Crab florentine starter for Phil and smoked salmon and crab for me were delicious. Mains of fillet steak with red wine sauce and whole Dover sole for me cooked in mouth watering butter, also the best ever. Saute potatoes, green beans, mangetout and broccoli spears. Fine... More

We decided to try Harris's restaurant having been by it many times and we weren't disappointed! Wow it was good! It is a classic, the service is very unobtrusive which I must admit I prefer, we were served by a waitress who was trained to a high standard like they used to be, attentive but with your privacy in mind....

Whenever we venture as far a Penzance we always visit this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Harris is easily as good as any of the well known TV chefs. However, the difference is that he actually cooks for you. The food and service are second to none. Being close to Newlyn fish features prominently on the menu and so is... More

Last night of our week in Cornwall so we chose Harris's to eat and weren't disappointed. Very good service, friendly but unobtrusive, nice menu and good wine list. Both our starters, crab provencal and scallops were excellent. These were followed by pheasant for my wife which she thoroughly enjoyed whilst I had the Dover Sole which overwhelmed the plate, tasted... More

Attention to detail separates the good from the great in my opinion and Harris's is a great place to eat. Get over the salmon pink decor and you will have a great meal. There is formality in the waiting and the service. The menu is strongly influenced by the local catch and rightly so; we had a lovely moules marinare... More

We wanted somewhere special to treat a friend and her husband to celebrate her birthday. The atmosphere was peaceful and the service impeccable but friendly. Our order was diverse but everything was beautifully presented and quite delicious. We especially enjoyed the little thyme sorbet that came between courses, the perfect touch. Sadly we didn't have room for puddings but since... More

We had high expectations but ended up being a little bit disappointed. Harris's try hard to give the impression that they are slightly more up-market than they actually are. Great service is of course an imperative. They were very attentive, sometimes even a little bit too much. The fish we chose (John Dory) was good but over done. The vegetables... More
