We shared 2 meals at this Reef House Restaurant during our stay in Palm Cove. The breakfast options included continental buffet breakfast, hot plated meal options, or hot plated meal with the addition of the continental buffet. My partner and I both enjoyed eggs cooked your way, with toast and bacon. Simple choice but still delicious. The service was great.... More

We had dinner at the restaurant. The atmosphere is great. We asked for a table on the balcony and once the wind subsided they opened all the doors and you could enjoy the sound of the sea lapping on the shore. Service was attentive without being smothering. The seafood tasting plate for entree was great and the main meals were... More

This is a beautiful place for a meal as the decking over looks the beach with just the road in between. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly. We had our wedding reception at the Reef House by the pool on 12th August 2016 and it was awesome. Couldn't have picked a better place.

The service was great & it wasn't busy so we didn't have to wait too long for our food. We ordered half dozen oysters & 1 was off. The meal portions were tiny considering the price. We ordered the barramundi which was so heavily coated in batter it was awful. The salt & pepper calamari was nice but not enough.... More

Beautiful outlook for an outdoor dinner. I found the service exceptional. The meals were very good, bordering on excellent. I ate the eye fillet, exceptional piece of meat, very well cooked. I did think it was on the small serving size though, maybe in need of more sides. The restaurant is expensive for what it serves. My partner ate the... More

Considering we had an Accor Plus card it made dining here logical . Otherwise it would have been fairly pricy for 4 people .The lunch was enjoyable though not exceptional.

The continental breakfast is plentiful but I expensive. Then most restaurants were in the area. Cooked breakfast of eggs, bacon, tomatoes and hash brown was not great. We chose to have a cooked breakfast at Petes cafe down the road that was fresh , that was cheap and lovely. The dinner in the restaurant was lovely, and staff attentive.
