We hadn't been here since the Reel moved from Roseville, but it still has the things we liked about it then. The menu isn't large, but it covers a good range. The service is as it always was, the staff are there when needed but don't hover, and they're friendly without being overly familiar or obsequious. The food was excellent,... More

Restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, the service was good but the whole experience was let down by the food. The meals were nothing but average, home made pasta was a little over cooked and the gnocchi was dry and doughy, not soft and fluffy. Be aware the toilets are outside and often there is a wait for the key.... More

We chose to return to 'Reel on Redleaf' for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. The food was good and the service was most attentive. Reel doesn't have a big range on the menu, but I prefer a small restaurant to do a smaller number of choices really well - and they do.

Our tennis group booked our Christmas get together at Reel on Redleaf. We chose from the special menu which included a glass of wine, beer or soft drink. Desserts were extra. The majority of us chose the seafood tart, which wasn't a tart at all, but seafood piled on to a rather tough piece of "puff" pastry. The seafood was... More

We ate here about 12 months ago and I wasn't overly impressed. Dropped in for dinner with my wife and was pleasantly surprised. The service was good and the waiter most pleasant. The food arrive quite quickly and all of it was good. So good that we had desert, which we rarely do. I'll certainly return.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening last week. The food is cooked to perfection AND they had wonderful vegetarian options. Would happily go back! Their desserts are amazing too! Only suggestion would be to create more 'mood' or atmosphere in the restaurant. Maybe some music, dimmer lights etc Staff & service were great & we look forward to our next... More

I was a little surprised on arriving that there was seemingly nobody home! There were a couple of patrons seated in the furthest back table and an older couple outside but no staff to be seen for at least 3 minutes after we entered. Nobody to acknowledge us even which was a little embarrassing as I had taken a girlfriend... More

What I really enjoyed about this venue was the atmosphere. Everything was not a problem, felt like I was at home but being looked after very well. The menus was rather. Small but not a problem for me. My stake (for a change) was done exactly as I asked for. Nice discovery in my 'back yard'.
