Sundays Date night to try out the new menu and love how the menu has a mix of everything. The atmosphere was great , the service was exceptional, and it was nice to shop through the wine cellar . Definitely worth a try

We have been to Harveys many times but have seen it deteriorating rapidly. Whereas in the past I took business associates there, I would not dare to do this now. My wife ordered a Caprese salad. A simple dish that needs high quality ingredients. The mozzarella however was processed cheese and it tasted as if they forgot to take off... More

Visited this restaurant twice on our visit to Umhlanga Rocks last year, so we were determined to go again this year. I had read a few reviews about it being taken over and it was not so good, I have to disagree with that, as we had a fantastic time there. Pleasant greeting on arrival, comfortable seating, food and wine... More

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
