Best poolside dining: Harrisons
Set over two chandelier-lit levels inside the Sheraton Grand Mirage – arguably the glitziest Port Douglas resort – Harrisons by chef and owner Spencer Patrick spills out onto a breezy terrace overlooking the vast lagoon pool. The stylings are ’80s glam but the food is sharp and modern: think spaghetti of local squid and ’nduja or a playfully reimagined steak tartare with foie gras and HP sauce.
