Fodor's Expert Review Harrisons
A classic "Queenslander" with a lovely outdoor cocktails area shaded by century-old mango trees and fine-dining inside, Harrisons impresses with deftly executed dishes that showcase fresh seafood and small-batch ingredients, sourced locally. You might start with Moreton Bay bugs and move on to roasted barramundi; Hiramasa yellowtail kingfish with artichokes, sorrell, clams, succulents, and mushrooms; or a tender Chateaubriand of Victorian Black Angus steak (A$98 for two). Harrison's dessert menu is limited but seductive: it might be lemon meringue pie or a decadent Valrhona white chocolate and amaretto zabaglione with honeycomb. There's a six-course "menu gourmande" at A$80 per person, A$140 with matched wines. On the wine list, you'll find plenty of good mid-priced Antipodean drops and a smattering of French ones.
