Great food, coffee, venue. Staff very friendly and helpful. My only suggestion is that staff enquire if patrons would like a second coffee after meal is finished and have remained seated, in particular as first coffee was consumed prior to brekkie/brunch having started. Otherwise perfect. Thank you xx
We were really happy with our service and will definitely be returning.
I would recommend Harvest for the food and ambiance however the service could have been better. Management seemed quite disinterested and apathetic. I had booked a table for 5 and requested a simple dessert with a candle as it was a friend’s birthday and on the day of the booking I had approached one of the staff to remind them of this, however nobody seemed to take notice and this was not delivered as promised. We did get an apology at the end, however given we had paid over $300 for our meals it would have been courteous for management to perhaps offer a compliment dessert or something for the birthday girl who missed out on her ‘birthday’ cake and song. Left a bad impression for our first visit to Harvest and will likely not return to be honest. Please pay more attention to your customers as little details make a big impact.
Set in the historic’village’ of Newrybar, Harvest was a delight to experience. Will definitely be back!
Lovely restaurant, friendly efficient staff. Over priced meals, I had the pear for desert it was hard and tasteless. The pork neck was delicious but very expensive for a piece of meat with 4 radishes and a couple of small turnips.
Very nice welcome,
Fruit plate ( never came )
2 soy lattes ( arrived after meals and not soy. So, my wife had to go to the toilet every 30 min on the way to Sydney )
Fried eggs ( good ) the bread hard as stone.
Poached eggs ( good ) no complains.
Sorry for the review. But, I hope you take it to improve yourself.
Btw, we bought some bakery afterwards and was good.
The environment and service were excellent. Food was a disappointment. Too acidotic (fermantation?vinegar?) covering all other tastes.
I was at Harvest for lunch with a friend who owns a successful restaurant - later that night when talking to another highly successful and restaurant owner, she described the lunch experience as exceptional noting the food as phenomenal- the word phenomenal repeated for emphasis.
Me - bloody delicious, inventive, approachable all delivered with integrity passion and professionalism
We were four ladies on a weekend away and wanted to try Harvest after hearing rave reviews. It did not disappoint! Meal sizes were more than adequate for us to share and taste many dishes. Beautiful fresh food in stunning surroundings. We will certainly return when next in this quaint little town.
Wonderful service and food. Will return! Love the little kids village across the road too!
Excellent food, great service and wonderful atmosphere.
Great service, delicious food beautifully presented. Highly recommend.
Wonderful Modern Rural Australia style restaurant. City quality food in a tiny northern NSW town.
Casual, knowledgeable and friendly service. Always good when the menu reads not as good as when the dish arrives. Always a surprise.
Such a beaut experience. Jo was a legend and the food for bang on! We did get overcharged for the wine though which we only figured out after we paid so no need to make a deal out of it. I think the Hochkirch may be different on the menu.
All good though! Thanks x
This was our 5th. Time there and we love it. Our first visit was 2009 and whenever we are close by (we come from Melbourne) we make an effort to go. Yesterday was to celebrate my husbands birthday, we were pleased to be close by so we could have our celebration at Harvest.
We had a later reservation being 1.45. The flavour of everything was great however we shared the Lamb and it was a bit dry, the potatoes were also quite hard so some of them and were quite tricky to chew through. The service was great and drinks were good.
I was a little bit disappointed the menu was overly complex I have been in the past and was much more satisfied
Lunch celebrating my husband’s birthday. Harvest is one of our favorite restaurants in Byron Bay. Great food & very family friendly.
Waitress staff were too busy to offer any kind of decent service. Quite rude and unorganised really. Food is over rated... I won’t be coming back. This place is incredibly over rated
An amazing meal! Wonderful food carefully prepared the. Delivered to the table by warm and knowledgeable staff. The cuttlefish was a standout. Thank you for a memorable evening. We’ll be back.
We had great expectations and was bitterly disappointing. They said it was a forager meal and venison does not exist in area. It was tasteless and over cooked. Not fresh but frozen. The wine tasted like cordial
Excellent lunch. Pepper and salt were requested but the request forgotten. Second request produced the pepper and salt, but the meal was half finished by then. Otherwise, a very enjoyable dining experience
Amazing food, beautifully presented.
Personable wait staff who work effectively together. Highly recommend!
Thank you for another great visit to Harvest, we hadn’t been for quite a while but loved it as always!
Harvest is as good as it gets!! Lovely interesting, healthy food. So nice I had to order
3 courses and wine. Never mind, I haven’t been anywhere better than this, not Melbourne,
France or Spain, where we have just returned from!!!
A lovely lunch, served with good humour and knowledge of the product. We found the music on the loud side.
This was one of the most memorable meals I have ever had! We shared the Tasmanian trout and I am still talking about it! Shared a magnificent Riesling. Would go back anytime! Service was excellent and friendly helpful staff. What more can I say?
We had a fabulous Italian waitress , who made our first time to harvest very pleasant. And the food was exceptional , our chefs for the night should be very proud of what they served. Thank you we will tell everyone and be back.
This was the best meal I’ve had all year - great staff. Food was spectacular and great ambience.
First visit on recommendation to Harvest restaurant. Delicious food which we shared and enjoyed greatly. Our waitress could have been friendlier.
Fabulous food and attentive and informative service.. thank you!!
We loved everything about this place! The food was amazing, great service and the venue was gorgeous. We especially enjoyed finishing off our drinks by the fireplace after dinner.
What a gorgeous dining experience! Such a beautiful setting, exemplary service that was warm and knowledgeable, and absolutely mouth watering food. The lamb was delicious! Highly recommended and can’t wait to visit again
The food, service and ambience made for a lovely lunch and I look forward to our return!
Enjoyed our lunch. The food was excellent and the wine list was significantly better than the last time were there. On that occasion it consisted mainly of wines from the local region which were basically poor. Almost didn’t go back but glad we did.
Amazing Food! Definately will be returning again very soon.
Wonderful dining experience!
Came here on a date with my boyfriend, we had the 5 course set menu which was divine.
The food was fresh and different!
The staff were all so lovely and any questions we had about the menu they answered.
We will definitely come back.
We'd heard about this wonderful restaurant at Newrybar for a while so it was wonderful to finally try it.
The food was wonderful, the service outstanding and to sit in front of the fire with a coffee on a cool drizzly day was the stuff of dreams when you're a Queenslander with no winter to speak of!
Beautiful food, amazed and delighted by the wild harvest forgaing concept and the food was simply amazing.
Wine choice was an issue on the night we dined, limited to a few varieties and seemingly the most expensive bottles as a result of a shipment not arriving. Which was a bit of a shame.
One of our favourite restaurants in the region. Love the restaurant, love the food and love the vibe. The Harvest team always delivers - and they certainly did again!
