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.

Food and waiting staff were good but atmosphere and noise level was rowdy and too much for a dining experience.

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.

Fantastic experience, we'll be coming back.

Lovely food. Had tapas. Ordered 6 dishes plus chips (they recommend 4-5 dishes per person) 5-6 dishes for 2 would be plenty. Lovely atmosphere. Excellent service. Would recommend and will go again.

Very busy in the bar, so it seemed strange that they didn’t take us to our table straight away especially as the upstairs restaurant was quiet, our table was ready and we had kids with us. ( bar was heaving with no tables and a queue at the bar)
the food was enjoyable, but It was odd not to be asked how we would like our steaks to be cooked.

We will go back but maybe order differently

Booked for an Evening meal, found the steps a bit difficult to negotiate, but this is not unusual in Whitby... Had an infant with us, not really child friendly for eating, but staff were helpful. Good food and drinks were reasonable. Would visit again, but as a couple and enjoy the busy bar area downstairs.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Liked the tapas style menu but some dishes could have had more flavour, e.g duck leg with potato puree quite bland. Some other dishes tasted like sauce had been poured straight out of the bottle, e.g tiger prawns with sweet chilli sauce.
Seafood chowder went down well.
