We sat down early on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is nicely laid out. I love the facility of reviling your own drinks. The food was ok. Steak was poor but the chicken was nice. The service was good so can’t complain.
As a coeliac I feel that more could be done to provide alternatives to wheat. Having to wade through an entire folder to find out what is wheat free in this day and age shouldn’t be necessary. They tell you whT is veggie and vegan. Time to move with the times Harvester.

The kataruna is located very close to Brighton children’s hospital where we have spent the best part of a month with our baby daughter.
Tonight was the first time we were allowed out for a while and all I wanted was a family meal with both my children and husband. On arrival I was shown to the lift (a great addition since the refurb!) and then to a perfectly good table where we could fit a high chair too, however..... our exhausted 6year old son had other ideas and wanted to sit in a booth (no high chair would fit so this wasn’t an option!) after a mini melt down from him, a lot of stern looks from me, and an almost scary March over from my husband we were at loggerheads and I was virtually on my last straw. Sharon however found an alternative booth where a High chair would fit (cue happy 6yr old!) she listened to me ranting and raving about my horrendous month, and she informed the kitchen we were on a really tight schedule before our daughter had to be back in hospital. Food arrived in super quick time, was lovely and tasty, we couldn’t finish the meal (partly because our daughter decided to start throwing peas around ) but also amazing sized portions. Sharon went to the trouble of finding out our sons name, continued to call him by his name throughout the meal and basically saved the sanity of two totally exhausted even more out of control than usual parents meaning we had our first family meal together in weeks!!!! Sharon you don’t know just how much your kind gestures meant this evening- yours a star, thank you!!!

Had a nice meal for two at the Harvester yesterday. We were served by Michael who was very friendly and always checked back on us to make sure we had used the salad bar and enjoyed our meals. Nice dining area and excellent price, would recommend.
