If you want a limited menu , early teatime . Service slow , probably because more active downstairs. No one asked if our meals were OK

Booked a table in the restaurant for a busy Saturday early evening. Service was absolutely brilliant! The food was possibly the best we have ever had in Whitby over the years. Would highly recommend and we will be returning. Cannot fault anything. Outstanding!

We were disappointed that the menu was not that shown on the website. We gave been to Harry's a number of times before and enjoyed the small plates. There was not much on the new menu that appealed. The food was Ok but not outstanding. The service was excellent. Friendly and professional.

Went with my husband & teenage daughter over the Bank holiday weekend after looking at the reviews. We were glad we booked our table as when we arrived, at 6 o’clock, a lady enquiring about a table in front of us was told it would be 9pm before they could seat her. We can understand why this was so popular. The staff were really friendly & we were seated upstairs by a window which gave us lovely views of the sea & the Abbey. The food was delicious & we will definitely go back.

As always, everything was faultless when we ate here. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the food was imaginative and delicious, and the atmosphere was lively without being loud. Would always recommend this place to anyone.

We booked in advance as it was a bank holiday weekend. It was busy but we were given a friendly greeting and our table was ready. We chose from the signature menu and every dish was delicious, we even had the mini desserts as the food was so good and tasty. The service was friendly and efficient and we certainly recommend. We will be back when we're back in Whitby.

We were looking forward to the meal at Harry's lounge . The food we had was very nice, unfortunately the 2 main items we were looking forward to they had run out of, which at only 2030hrs we thought was not really suitable, but as we said what we had was nice.

Although we had an enjoyable evening this was slightly jacked by a rather rude table of guests unhappy about seating arrangements. The team were doing there best to resolve the problem but the cud toners were being very unreasonable . So we left sooner than planned . Not Harry's staffs fault but the rude diners p.

We always visit Harry's when we come to Whitby as the food and atmosphere are excellent. We visited during the Tomorrow's Ghosts festival in April and just managed to get a table. The menu is always very appetising and the starters were easy with prawns and goats cheese. Standout of the night for us was the special of cod wrapped in prosciutto, it was amazing. Lovely big chunk of cod and not too salty prosciutto that didn't over come the taste of the cod. We both chose this dish and compliments to the chefs for a wonderful dish. We shall visit again in November and I don't hesitate to recommend Harry's.

We have visited harry’s A number of times- The food on this visit was excellent and the service impeccable as always. It would be nice not to be squashed in the corner when using a table for only the two of us however, at the same time, I appreciate they have limited space. We will definitely recommend and return.
