We came here to watch a football match which started at 8.30pm. We decided we'd eat there so that we got a good table in front of the big screen. On walking in, we realised it wasn't the place for us at all. I eat mostly vegetarian food, and there was nothing inspiring or different on the menu for me... More

All kinds of sports on the 6 dissent screens; from football to sumo wrestling and basketball to kickboxing. Stayed over the road at Central Hostel so Reef in effect was our common room... I miss this place! Would recommend 😊

Great macaroni cheese :-) amazing chicken and a whopping chicken zinger burger, my partner and I ate here often throughout out 3 month stay on the island. We often went with friends too as it was a great atmosphere with really good food. I would recommend going there if visiting koh tao.

I spent a few months on Koh Tao so visited a few times with friends. Reef isn't the biggest venue and can get cramped, often leading to sharing tables with other diners. In many places this might be an issue, but not in Reef. The customers are chilled, there for good food, relaxed ,eclectic mix in music and to watch... More

I've visited Reef before and always loved their food and staff but think they deserve an extra special rating for how wonderful they treated our large party on Christmas. After our reservation at another local restaurant was a complete disaster the owner at Reef went out of the way to make room for our party. On one of their busiest... More
