I'm not fully into Asian fusion food but was very surprised. We had a "tapas" type of meal where we chose several items from the appetiser list which we shared. Great choice. They also have a great cocktail menu which we sampled!!

From the second I entered the building I was made welcome by the waitress, Madolyn, or mads as she was making us feel at home and was fantastic with us from start to end! The food was great, again delivered by the aforementioned Madolyn!

Harry's bar has brilliant food, cocktails and service. Highly recommend. We had a lovely Friday night at Harry's. Tried a number of starters with our cocktails. The food was yummy and cocktails were brilliant. Our favorite was the lemon drop. The bar was busy but still found a table. Looking forward to going back again.

Friendly staff and nice place and great cocktail only suggestion if you sit outside wear insect repellent or perhaps the bar could invest in come citronella candles 😊 would return again!

Unusual café and bistro with an unusual mix of styles. However the food is very good and well priced. I can certainly recommend it. Excellent for a night out with a good wine list.

Went to Harry’s looking for dessert on a stormy wet evening. Atmosphere was warm and comfortable. Not too sure what is expected here re service? We waited at our table for a wait staff to take our orders but finally went to bar ourselves. Shared the Key Lime Tart and Chai Brûlée between the three of us. Glad we did... More
