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

We had a great meal and exceptional service for Saturday Dinner at Harris's Restaurant on our first trip to Penzance. The fish was excellent and fresh from the sea. Matched with a delightful bottle of 2014 Muscadet and in-house ice cream to finish a great...More

Last night of our week in Cornwall so we chose Harris's to eat and weren't disappointed. Very good service, friendly but unobtrusive, nice menu and good wine list. Both our starters, crab provencal and scallops were excellent. These were followed by pheasant for my wife...More

Attention to detail separates the good from the great in my opinion and Harris's is a great place to eat. Get over the salmon pink decor and you will have a great meal. There is formality in the waiting and the service. The menu is...More

We wanted somewhere special to treat a friend and her husband to celebrate her birthday. The atmosphere was peaceful and the service impeccable but friendly. Our order was diverse but everything was beautifully presented and quite delicious. We especially enjoyed the little thyme sorbet that...More

We had high expectations but ended up being a little bit disappointed. Harris's try hard to give the impression that they are slightly more up-market than they actually are. Great service is of course an imperative. They were very attentive, sometimes even a little bit...More
