This casino was nice little casino but it was very small. The Poker room only has 2 tables and isn't open every night. Nice place to kill time but not a must see.

A fledgling casino lacking appeal. Needs a boost to be of international standards. Uninspiring and lacking the 'WoW' factor to bring in the crowd. Without further 'injection' of the Chinese and Japanese tourist, I can see this Casino dwindling.

Fairly standard casino atmosphere. Drinks were good. Food was awful in the restaurant - basic club food, dry roast, tough steak, boiled-to-death vegetables. Head somewhere else to eat!

Parking said I parked longer than I did, and then overcharged me on the time they think I stayed, different to what the sign on entry said it would cost.. What can ya do, you need your car out..

Unlike a lot of casino's I have visited the atmosphere at the Reef was not dull and gloomy - didn't make you feel it was perpetual night time. Well laid out and plenty of choses of games, machines etc to get involved with. Also a range of food available.

After finding ourselves with a free afternoon in Cairns on one of those rare days where the weather was better inside than out , we thought we would see what the casino had to offer . The reef Casino is small by comparison to the others we have been to ( Sydney , Melbourne, and The Treasury, (Brisbane)) but it... More

Front desk receptionist, 'Leanne', fixed us up with a casino membership card. She was a lovely lady, very helpful & pleasant.

Their poker machines, which are located on two... More
