Amazing food and a terrific menu. I love the Salt and Pepper Calamari and the Oyster tasting platter. Always great service and I visit every time I visit my Parents at Forster Keys. The best view overlooking the Forster/ Tuncurry Bridge with incredible Sunsets 🌅...More

This would be the number one restaurant in Forster for food, service and view. The food is top notch so maybe a little more expensive than other local restaurants, but so worth it. We visit this restaurant 2-3 times every time we stay in Forster...More

The Reef has a lovely view of the lake, but we go because we love their food - it never disappoints, and the staff are always really friendly and helpful.

The Reef recently underwent a refurbishment to the bar and restaurant and now boasts an eclectic fresh decor, where guests can relax in the ambient and modern surrounds from the best vantage point in Forster. Guests can enjoy a cocktail or beer with friends at the new outdoor/indoor bar overlooking the sparkling Wallis Lake, or they can stay for a delicious meal delicately prepared by head chef Peter Tjornelund. The menu is a fusion of Asian and European cuisine and features mouth-watering meals such as a garlic and lemon marinated pork cutlet with honey figs, roast kumara, goats cheese and pistachio. The menu also includes an all-day dining option with gourmet pizzas along with a carefully selected wine and beer menu to accompany the meals.
