Husband's birthday meal. This is a well established fine dining restaurant with no pretentious. Crab florentine starter for Phil and smoked salmon and crab for me were delicious. Mains of fillet steak with red wine sauce and whole Dover sole for me cooked in mouth watering butter, also the best ever. Saute potatoes, green beans, mangetout and broccoli spears. Fine... More

We decided to try Harris's restaurant having been by it many times and we weren't disappointed! Wow it was good! It is a classic, the service is very unobtrusive which I must admit I prefer, we were served by a waitress who was trained to a high standard like they used to be, attentive but with your privacy in mind....

Whenever we venture as far a Penzance we always visit this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Harris is easily as good as any of the well known TV chefs. However, the difference is that he actually cooks for you. The food and service are second to none. Being close to Newlyn fish features prominently on the menu and so is... 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 which she thoroughly enjoyed whilst I had the Dover Sole which overwhelmed the plate, tasted... 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 strongly influenced by the local catch and rightly so; we had a lovely moules marinare... 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 came between courses, the perfect touch. Sadly we didn't have room for puddings but since... 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 too much. The fish we chose (John Dory) was good but over done. The vegetables... More

For an experience in dining found in few places, a visit to Harris's Restaurant in Penzance is to be highly recommended. The décor may not be to everyone's taste, but the food and service by far make up for that. This is the quintessential marriage of excellent food with perfect service. It doesn't come cheap, but it is well worth... More

We were trying to eat nearby, but there was a long wait, so we popped in to this little place. Very quiet and nicely appointed, friendly and experienced staff. Not a huge menu, but a nice selection, and everything was well prepared.
