“Top food, a little pricey”

Harrisons by Spencer Patrick
Ranked #65 of 133 Restaurants in Port Douglas
Price range: US$5 - US$36
Description: 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.

We had a great meal at Harrisons with the 4 course taster menu.

I think that is the best way to go as a la carte would be expensive.

4 of us had dinner after trying other restaurants around Port Douglas. This is right up there with quality of food but exceeds in service. Food had some fantastic flavors. Amazing environment with friendly staff. Worth while.
