We invited our friends to celebrate their Golden wedding anniversary. They had not been for many years and were delighted with the meal. Delicious crab and salmon starters, followed by steaks perfectly cooked, venison superb and my Dover sole was, as always, fabulous. Came off...More

A hidden gem in old Penzance. This petit restaurant offers an exceptional welcome and perfect hospitality in the traditional style. The quality and execution of the cooking thoroughly deserves its Michelin listing and displays the experience, confidence and skill of the proprietor Chef.

There is something very special about Harris’s that sets it apart. There is a charming, old world approach to service and lots of lovely touches (e.g. the complimentary sorbet between starter and main course). The menu is conservative with a set number of attractive choices,...More

The food and service here were excellent and highly recommended. However, there is no beer on the drinks menu and the cheapest bottle of wine was £40 and up to over £100. Whilst I don't drink, this killed it for my partner as he felt...More
