Went for a special occasion.It was NOT fine dining. No table overlays, salt served in a glass grinder as bought from shop, wine cellar was hot as the aircon was out of order. Rib-eye was definitely not Rib-eye steak. Just a very disappointing experience. First and definitely last visit

Harvey's has a lovely setting and ambiance. The staff were very friendly but the service was poor as they don't appear to be adequately trained and supervised. The menu is exciting but our main courses were served luke warm. Overall it was a disappointing experience as it was a special occasion that they knew about in advance. Hopefully things can... More

We hosted our welcome dinner for our wedding guests who had flown in for our wedding at Harvey's. We had 30 guests and were all seated on 3 tables of 10. The food was spectacular and the service was great. Each table was served at a different time but that was to be expected. We were able to select our... More

We visited on a Friday night. The place is beautiful, has very recently come under new management who could not have done more to make sure our visit was excellent. The set menu (R160 for 3 courses in the evening) was exceptional value for money and the food was delicious, creatively and beautifully presented. From the owner, to the new... More

Back to the Harvey's we have loved for years. Fantastic service (Sizwe, you are the boss!), faultless food, great wine list and surprisingly well priced.

We hadn't been to Harvey's for a while and were very pleasantly surprised. We were blown away by the service and the meal. One of the best dinner experiences we have had in a while.

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
