“Dining is more than just food. It is that special combination of hospitality, location and personal touches that allow guest to ‘feel at home’. Harry’s Restaurant has captured these elements perfectly. The dining area is light, bright and welcoming with an eclectic mix of art and object d’art throughout, collected by Harry during his years of travel. With a friendly and helpful team, the dining experience at Harrys is second to none in the region. It is this philosophy that drives Harry to the markets, docks and farms in the region to personally select the ingredients. The menu is then developed from what was bought”
