Not much selection compared to what the others on the strip offered but overall god quality in what they had. Also their breakfast was VERY good and varied. Probably gets busy during their high season, but even though it was "open-air" across the street from the beach, very few folks were thee.

My first impression was it going to be ordinary as it has been in other places that we have stayed at in the past, Boy oh boy was I proven wrong,it was the most amazing dinner that we have had in Palm Cove so far,the meals from...

Staying at the Reef House we were enticed by the degustation menu.. and they delivered! Everything married perfectly on the plate and staff were professional; checking in with us at exactly the right times. It's quite pricy and could probably work out cheaper if you ordered a similar range of dishes from the menu. Pork and scallop dish a must... More

We were not disappointed by this highly recommended restaurant. Small menu, quality ingredients, not 'trendified' beyond recognition. Attentive staff - an all round enjoyable dining experience.

I can't describe how let down I am by this place, The food was over priced and took forever to come to my table. I would seriously advise going elsewhere to dine in beautiful palm cove as Reef House is a pure let down.

We arrived for breakfast at 9:30am (staying elsewhere) only to find empty orange and pineapple dispensers after being seated at a table covered in crumbs. We then waited to be offered a menu......and waited.......and waited. Finally I had to ask for one. After orders taken we then proceeded to the buffet for fresh fruit. Luckily for us we got the...

We went for breakfast and lunch! Loved the soft shelled crab I ordered for lunch and the smiling waitresses. And because I am an Accor member, I got excellent discounts!
