Picture Harvey's Restaurant  in Umhlanga Rocks, Umhlanga, Northern Suburbs (DBN), Durban and Surrounds, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa The original Harvey’s was in a house in Goble Road where Andrew ran it for eleven years. After closing the restaurant, he took on the catering game and started Chef on the Run. After many people requested him to reopen the restaurant again he found a venue in Oakwood building, Innes Road next to Mitchell Park. He, along with business partner Brian Nathan wanted to capture an elegant, yet relaxed feeling in food and décor to satisfy all age groups and social cliques. So with extensive alterations to make the existing premises suitable, Harvey’s opened again in September 2008.

When this new Harvey’s opened we introduced a new concept in dining. Instead of plated starters, mains and desserts we chose to serve every dish on platters for the table to share.

These platters all contained four miniature portions of the same dish chosen, so that up to four people could taste exactly the same food. This resulted in a dining experience that had guests tasting a multitude of dishes before leaving the restaurant. Alas this wonderful concept was one that we could not continue as most guests preferred individually plated meals. In February 2010 we changed over to the more traditional set up of individually plated starters, salads, mains and desserts.

At Harvey’s the aims are, and always will be to please our guests, and to see them relaxed and happy to be in, what is known as Durban’s “must visit “ venue. With a young and dynamic kitchen and service team and people who enjoy the work as much as they do, we have achieved just that, in the exemplary cuisine and discreet, attentive serving staff. With a menu that appeals to a wide variety of clientele while showcasing interesting, attractively presented dishes, and the extensive and thoughtfully planned wine list, we strive to achieve the goals we set forth. The food is simple and honest, upholding the belief that a chef must be respectful to his ingredients and acknowledges that he can’t upstage the food he works with.

This is what exactly what Harvey’s Innes Road encapsulated and maintained for 5 years. Times however change and new exciting ventures open up when you least expect them. This resulted us in saying farewell to the Morningside area that has always been Harvey’s home and venturing up north to Umhlanga.

The new Harvey’s “Gentleman’s club” with a massive splash of Andrew design, feel and new age vibrancy has already got people talking, (being nominated in the Boschendal Style Awards just weeks after opening) as has the massive 72 arm chandelier that hangs in the centre of the spacious glass walled restaurant. The venue is elegant yet relaxed and caters for all from a gourmet pizza lunch to the dishes Harvey’s has been famed for over the years like the Duck Confit and Lamb Bordelaise. The new restaurant is a reflection of the young fresh and vibrant team here at Harvey’s that surpass their age in knowledge, creativity and dedication to what they do.

With the opening of the new Harveys restaurant and the success of our bartenders in national competitions we decided it was time to create a bar with the same sophistication and elegance that is Harveys thus Harry ‘s cocktail bar was born. It encapsulates the old school classics of bartending with new and improved techniques and re-ignites the attention to detail, sophistication and professionalism that is bartending.
