The Reef has never let us down. Its our go to restaurant for a special dinner as the food has always been consistently good. Cosy in winter and breezy in summer. Unbeatable view! Waiters always friendly and attentive.

You ended up paying so much for a drop of food! Not worth it! It's only worth the view, you pay for every minute you are sitting in there.
