Another great night spent here with a friend for dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and up to its normal high standards. This is still one of my most favourtie restaurants in the City.

On this occasion, there was a particularly loud gentleman sitting at another table who was quite animated with his conversation that caused a slight distraction - but that is an individual rather than the restaurant itself .

I'll be back again next week with my husband and looking forward to another lovely evening.

Lamb rump perfect for garlic lovers like me with four big cloves. Great value with special offer. Talenti Rosso di Montalcino very impressive at an affordable price. Everything else that I like about Harry's was the same as ever: service, green veg side dishes, understated but comforting decor, and the Harry's version of the Moscow Mule.

Last minute booking due to a let down elsewhere.
Nice cosy setting. Pleasant and efficient staff. Varied choices on the menu. Food was excellent and my Lamb lovely. Best I’ve had for a long time. Desserts were tasty if not a little bit small for me. A lovely bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc completed the overall experience. Would visit again.

I don't often eat out as standard restaurant fair is generally underwhelming, but this was genuinely delicious and I look forward to returning. The service was also excellent. Both the female host and waiter were also excellent, they were friendly and efficient without being intrusive.

Service was very friendly and helpful but a bit clunky. We ordered our drinks and said we were ready to order food straight away. The starters arrived before the drinks which was odd. Starters were ok but not particularly special and we both had lamb rump. This apparently should have been flagged as medium rare by default but wasn’t and we were not offered any sides which the lamb needed. One was medium and mine was very rare. It was cooked again and staff were very apologetic. Dauphinois potato was ok but average. Overall this is a nice relaxed place and staff lovely, but the dishes we chose really lacked something and the experience felt a bit old fashioned.

Thank you Tim for your review and we note your comments - we are certainly more of a rustic restaurant with its very own charm! We apologise for the lamb not being cooked to your liking but pleased to see this was put right quickly for you and hope to see you again. Kind regards Debra

Decent enough experience though service was sullen from certain members of staff and not as attentive as others. Ask for the lunch menu if you don’t want a massive dining experience for lunchtime

My first visit here with a dear friend catching up after a while and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left I had a smile on my face! The service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive and the food was to die for! The best venison EVER! 50% off menu in the evenings makes it extremely good value for the city. I shared a post on FB and lots of people came back saying they'd been and loved it....not surprised at all! 20/10!! Already planning next visit :)

I have been to Harry's Bar over 10 times but on this occasion it was disappointing. The waiter was very nervous. The chicken soup was vegetable soup with no chicken in it and my friend ordered a pasta dish but she didn't realise it had clams so she sent it back which was accommodating but it spoilt the whole evening and it was my birthday.

I went back to make sure to try the harissa salmon fillet while it was still on the menu, and was not disappointed: this is a brilliant dish. Everything else was much as before except the Nederburg Chenin Blanc has moved on to 2018, not quite such a star as the 2017 but still excellent (and perfect with the salmon). More than before, I was reminded what a pleasant room the dining room is with its timbers and quaint prints. The Old Winchester cheese is particularly good on an already strong cheeseboard. Bravo encore!

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. Basically scammed us by adding items to the bill. When we asked post meal how we managed to consume so much, they claimed to have it all on CCTV. When we asked to see the CCTV, they then said it didn't exist. They have offered to return just the service charge, well short of the amount they scammed us for, and I declined.

The matter is now with our respective credit card companies.

There are literally dozens of really nice bars and restaurants nearby. Save yourself the bother of checking if you've been scammed and just go to them instead.

Harry's Bar
Responded on 1 February 2019

This is totally untrue. You spent some time in our restaurant drinking and dining and paid your bill. A week later you disputed the amount of drinks which our staff clearly recall serving. As discussed with you we do have CCTV but there wasn't a camera in the area you were in. Your claim is for 1 bottle and 2 glasses of wine and we offered to return your S/C which would have covered most of this but you declined. I trust you will find another restaurant and bar to suit your tastes.

Still on form with an excellent prawns & smoked salmon starter and venison with Marsala, not quite as outstanding as the venison with garlic last year, but still very enjoyable. Nederburg wines have replaced Journey's End as the South African options, still a decent choice and a bit cheaper, with the 2017 Chenin Blanc as good as you would expect from this superstar vintage in the Cape. My delightful waitress Jodi ran the service most attentively despite the room getting quite full & busy. The Dirty Harry cocktail is a brilliant spin on the Moscow Mule ... just don't be surprised when it turns up and is pink! It still has the kick of the mule, despite the raspberries. A super evening.

This was a real find. Our waitress was lovely. It was busy and service is measured. We were not in a rush. It was a lovely place to catch up with a friend..could talk to each other and be heard.
I was on dry January and the most amazing and delicious personalised cocktail (virgin) was made for me. The best non alcoholic cocktail I have had.
Food was delicious. I had cod and chips and my friend the lamb shank and mash. Really good dishes.
The decor is quirky and the staff so friendly .
I would come back here for a mid week meet up.
Thank you Harry's Bar for a fab night. Oh and the 50% off food offer was a bonus!
