Delicious Barramundi with a tasty salad and fries, grilled chicken with a pine nut salad whist looking out over the coral sea to double island and hat island. An impressive terrace at the front of the hotel with magnificent paperbark trees overhead. Perfect for a long lingering lunch. An extensive wine list and the Aggratto with expressl and Dranbui capped... More

We had a wonderful evening here tonight. The meal was delightful as were the drinks and the ambiance. Sophie & Karrie ensured that we had a wonderful evening for Jill's Birthday. Their Customer Service/Satisfaction was Excellent and they were both extremely helpful, knowledgable and gracious. We will certainly be back at the Reef House again soon. Jill's comment to me...

Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable, but the staff here (except for lovely Catherine) seem jaded - no smiles to be seen. The dining venue is lovely, but the service seemed hurried, and the food adequate (if not overpriced for the quality). I was most disappointed at the quality of the cocktails. Honestly, there are better restaurants for the... More

Lovely friendly service and great food. Often at great restaurants you get great food but small portions - well we were stuffed, I couldn't finish it...and trust me, I LOVE my food.

We were at Palm Cove and struggling to find a dinner restaurant. Luckily though, we found Reef House. It is a wonderful place to have dinner! I always had the steak and it was really good, but my family tried most of the dishes on the menu and they were great. I loved having the flutist in the corner, it... More

Palm Cove is really heave on a stick and if you manage to find your way there you might find you don't leave for a while...This spot offers great lunch time menu with vibrant staff and great views of beach front. That ocean breeze slides in for a welcome cool relief. Make sure you drink plenty to avoid dehydration!

We had a delicious meal when we stayed at the Reefhouse but the evening was made by the Flautist playing on Friday night. Would never have imagined that I would like it so much but my partner and I had fun quizzing each other on the song titles and year of release. He played all the classics and it was... More

An impromptu lunch with the family today at the Reef House. The restaurant has a very relaxed resort feel overlooking the stunning beach across the road. Our table ordered 2 Singapore noodles, the Vietnamese chicken wrap, Salt and pepper squid on asian salad and kids nuggets. Food was fresh and tasty and good size for lunch. We enjoyed dessert especially... More

Beautiful fresh produce. Best barramundi and bugs by far. Sea scallops with pork belly to die for. In room dining experience was excellent. Delivered quickly & still piping hot.

They mess up with the bill and don`t apologize for it. They were overcharging us and didn`t fix it properly. Awful.
