We stayed overnight in Forster en route north and decided to try The Reef. The mains were perfectly cooked ie fish and lamb still moist and not overdone. And their desserts were a cut above the standard Trio of Ice-cream and Sticky date pudding on...More

My wife and I went to this restaurant today for lunch and it was superb. We had the Duck spring roll and a prawn pizza. The flavour of the sauce with the duck was so full of flavour you could drink it. Not really, but...More

Excellent location near the water. Would be wonderful on a warm summer night. Staff was polite and not intrusive. Was busy, but not filled with noise making it uncomfortable to talk. Tables not jammed up against each other as is the case in some places....More

This restaurant has great views for lunch, very relaxed outlook. I thought the meals were a little overpriced for what they were - lunch at $20 -$25 a head. They do say they have $15 lunches but only had 2 to choose from on the...More

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.
