Called in for breakfast one morning. Service was great and it was very comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was excellent and reasonably priced. Be back next year.

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.

We are visiting Palm Cove for a short Break for the first time. Love love the paperbark trees that line the Main Street at the Reef House restaurant you sit amongst them lit at night. Quite enchanting. Superb fresh fish, our party enjoyed the dinner immensely. And a good wine list.

Wait staff were friendly enough. Efficient service but it was very quiet on the day we visited. They should steer clear of Asian food as it is definitively not their forte. The gyoza tasted bland and the Singapore Noodles were so over done with the sauce that the sugar hit would be enough to push wrong buttons in a diabetic.... More

The food was adequate. Way too many chips on the seafood platter and not much seafood...and the bugs were overlooked. The waiter was nice but clearly had his hands full on the night we dined there. There was a wedding on so the staff were being used there, but don't try and fit more people in if you haven't got... More

Classy restaurant with wonderful food & wine. Only drawback was my medium-rare steak was definitely medium. Would love to have tried their degustation menu - next time! Lovely tropical outdoors feel to the restaurant - definitely recommend.

This is a fantastic restaurant, beautiful food, barramundi red curry to die for. The service is excellent, Alex was wonderful, the atmosphere and view across the water was picture perfect.
