Harvest is an old family favorite. Always loved it. On our recent visit the final tab came to $360 for three adults and four kids, two of whom ate from the kids menu. No entrees, no desserts and three glasses of wine only. Make no mistake, the food was very nice, But this is serious money for 3 scotch fillets, a kids serve of fish and chips, one kids pizza, an entree serve of calamari and one serve of ribs and two sides of fries and one beans.

Ben, I am sorry that you believe there has been some sort of price increase at Harvest. We monitor our prices regularly, additionally keeping an eye on competitors so that we remain competitive in the marketplace. We know I prices are very comparable to like restaurants. Using the information provided by you, your bill should have come to just over $200? Please let me know how you came to the $360? Perhaps you have left some information out? Our prices are advertised on our website and our facebook page so it is easy to work out what your meals ACTUALLY did cost for anyone who reads your review. For a table of seven, including four children ( meals for them were $14) your average price per head was approximately $30 per head - very reasonable we believe considering that includes top range steak and wines from our menu. Thanks for taking the time to review Harvest.

We dined here twice over the weekend as it had been quite a while since we last visited. We heard there were fairly new owners so we decided we would go back and give Harvest a try and so happy we did! The quality is far greater than it was previously, the taste and flavours of the food is amazing, great wine selection and the service is fantastic. The staff aim to please and that they do. We had the scallops and duck salad as a starter followed by the Market fish and Scotch Fillet steak. I was very impressed with the amount of gluten free, vegetarian and healthy fresh options. It was all so good we even managed to share a dessert of vanilla bean panna cotta with vanilla bean ice cream rolled in salted caramel popcorn. 10 out of 10 and on a night that was extremely busy. We were so impressed that we returned the following morning for breakfast. Amazing! Well done to the owners, Chef's and staff on taking Harvest up a notch. You will definitely be seeing us more often now with what you have done to the place, the food, decor and friendly warm service, well done.

What is it with Australian chefs fixation with balsamic. I detest it and always make a request that the plate is not decorated with , it normally at lunches and dinner, it may look nice but unless the menu mentions it it don’t use it. This is a very nice restaurant with pleasant staff and a good breakfast menu. I unsuspectingly ordered scrambled eggs with baby spinach on sourdough toast but it came with a balsamic decoration. I assiduously wiped the plate and managed to get most balsamic . The food apart from this was delicious and the coffee very pleasant. I will breakfast here again but I will remember to request no balsamic !!

This is our fall back restaurant when we want a nice meal out in Coolum, The quality is always of a high level and the service good, however sometimes we struggle with the over the top menu to find something to eat and will have to go elsewhere.
