The location of the Reef House is excellent with water views. Even when it is raining all is good. The menu, though small provides a good selection of local food.

We tried to get into this place also, it was a balmy night with high humidity and we had wandered down the beach to eat. We saw this place and liked the menu but noticed the two couples outside were quite dressed up. I was wearing a dressy pair of shorts/singlet and loafers. We asked the waitress if it was... More

With elegant, ambient surroundings to dine in, the romantic lighting and beach views makes this an ideal couples intimate dining location. You can chose to sit inside or out and the friendly waitstaff are both professional and informative.The fish curry is a must.

The steak was lovely but it was lonely just a smear of puree. Some asparagus and mushroom. The prawn linguine had 2 lovely prawns but only about 1/2 cup of pasta. The wine wad $16 a glass. Just too pretentious to go back to.

Sit on the deck and enjoy a wonderful meal in relaxed, comfortable surroundings with the beach literally just a few steps away. The crispy skin barramundi with red curry is simply delicious. It's a great place for dinner, lunch or breakfast. One of the highlights of Palm Cove

This was our first meal at Palm Cove and I always remember it as a great spot and restaurant, so was quick to recommend lunch here with our friends from Brisbane who were visiting Palm Cove for the first time. The trouble was, I think all the staff were visiting the restaurant for the first time too, or that was... More

We chose this restaurant because of its location, setting and popularity.We didn't have a reservation and were offered their last table. We arrived just after 7pm. We were warmly greeted by Sara, who showed us to our table, offered us water and pre dinner drinks, whist we looked over the menu. We didn't get past the first page, which was... More

We had breakfast one morning at the hotel. The restaurant itself is fantastic, situated at the front of the hotel and looking out to the water (as many are). The breakfast was a fairly typical hotel-style food and cost, even though we ordered from the menu as opposed to the buffet. Staff however were excellent and very friendly.
