This bar has a great vibe to it. There's an excellent wine and cocktail list and while we were only having drinks here before going on to dinner, they also have a reasonably good dinner menu. Recommended.

We stopped here to grab a beer and watch the world go by. Sit outdoors and enjoy the foot traffic people watching. There were some bugs so be warned.

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!

This place had fabulous food, great cocktails and a good atmosphere. Get the chilli squid - it's delicious. Hubby had the steak and it was also fantastic
