Consistently delicious food, love the little UK touches in some of the dishes (Bovril & Horlicks!). Pleeeease bring back the “proper” chips with the vinegar spray bottle!

We enjoyed our first visit here so much, this was one of the very few places we returned to on our Port Douglas holiday. For the second time, the service was great (they honoured our seating request, a nice plus), the food was brilliant (oysters, whipped salmon flatbreads, steak and chips, pork belly), and the Fork deal made it all a massive value. We arrived early and the apertivo hour drinks and starter specials made it perhaps the best overall deal in town. Highly recommended.

Plenty of restaurants serve great food, and Harrison's is one of them, but service is another story altogether. In this case, the service staff really shone and made our anniversary dinner extra special with attentiveness throughout the meal. The Fork dining deal made everything an even greater value, as usual, and though we didn't go for wine or dessert on this visit, in both cases the options looked as impressive as the food was (fresh oysters, roast duck and pork belly mains).

We enjoyed a special dinner, including excellent innovative food, fine wine and a lovely ambience.

Spending this sort of money i think the introduction could be a little more friendly, rather than saying you until 8pm on your table - you just have a 2 hour slot! I would only expect to be told this if we were a walk-in booking or it was a extreme busy time - it was neither. We a booked a few days in advance, and even by 8pm when we left the restaurant it was hardly busy. A little disappointed.

Highly recommended - a benchmark for many others.

What a lovely restaurant to be celebrating my partner’s 40th birthday! Had friendly and genuine service from all the waitstaff especially Sophie. We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu which was well paired with Australian/NZ wines. Highlight would be the grilled prawn with lobster bisque! It was very romantic sitting outdoors under the fairy lights besides the lagoon pool of the Sheraton on a beautiful night in Port Douglas. Thank you for the added touch of a birthday sparkler and message on the dessert!

BACK AGAIN! Our first experience was so good that we had to come back (just 2 days later). Another fantastic experience was had and also an opportunity to chat with Spencer, himself. What a great, down to earth guy. And turns out the incredible service we had on our prior experience was delivered by his wife. What an awesome team, they make! Both amazing people, and so knowledgeable and passionate about creating outstanding dining experiences. This time we choose the Yabbie Toasts to begin which were seriously 'to die for'. I think I could have easily just had 20 of those for dinner Haha. So good! Mains, this time, I chose the 16hr Short Rib AGAIN because it is that good. Our 2nd dish this time was the barramundi which was cooked beautifully and such a nice flavour. I don't normally eat fish but this was an exception to my taste buds. We heard the menu was soon to be changing and they were offering the new dessert as a special for the night. I cant remember the official description but it was a dark chocolate tart with salted caramel ice cream. Whatever you normally think when you hear that description, forget it. This is no ordinary dark chocolate tart and ice cream. It is something very pleasurable to the eye as well as the mouth. Something you have to see to really understand so just look on social media to find a pic. Overall, another fantastic dining experience for our last night in port douglas. Thank you for being the highlight of our north qld holiday. We would definitely give 10/10 5 star rating and yes, I would recommend to friends and family :)

About Harrisons by Spencer Patrick

Harrisons has been delivering unforgettable fine dining experiences as Port Douglas' only hatted restaurant, since 2007. Named after the owners first born, Harrisons was originally housed in a quirky Mediterranean style space on Macrossan Street then quickly moved to Wharf Street between 2009 - 2017, prior to taking up its finest residence yet at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort in 2017. Harrisons executive chef and owner, Spencer Patrick hails from the UK where he trained and worked in the kitchens of Marco Pierre White. During his time with White he was part of the brigade to bring three star Michelin glory to the infamous chef. Spencer went on to be head chef of three of White's venues and gained his own Michelin Star at the Café Royal Grill Room at the tender age of 27. Given Spencer's background the menu at Harrisons has evolved over the last ten years from classical French to a lighter and more light hearted approach as Spencer has rediscovered his British roots. The menu at Harrisons uses the very best local and Australian produce in a selection of refined seafood and meat dishes, scattered with delightful British nuance. From Yorkshire pudding with scorched Wagyu tartare, to Treacle Tart-ish, the favourite Chateaubriand and Paperbark baked reef fish with taro chips which is also known as, Harry's Fish & Chips. Harrisons is the most nationally awarded restaurant in Port Douglas and over the years has achieved, nine chefs hats in the Fairfax Good Food Guide, Top 100 Delicious. Magazine, Top 100 and Top 10 Restaurants in the Gourmet Traveller Food Guide, Gourmet Traveller Wine list awards and a string of awards through Restaurant Catering and Trip Advisor. Harrisons is open to both resort guests and the public, seven days.
