Have been to The Reel both before and after the movies at The Cameo. Well worth it for a coffee & Cake after the movie, but watch out if your movie finishes around when they close...not overly interested in serving you as they "are closing". Good menu options if having a meal before the movies or visiting the area. Can... More

I am a local and have on many occasions visited the Reel when attending the cinema and found the food inconsistent. On this occasion I visited at 4.30pm while waiting for the movie to commence. I was greeted by one of the many delightful staff and whilst discussing that I was only after a coffee and being placed at a... More

Just the place for a light dinner before a visit to the Cameo Cinema however don't right this off as just a cafe! It has a great menu and can suit a casual dinner with friends. Well worth a visit !

On Anzac day, I recently went in for a coffee with a group of 7 friends after a movie and 3 of us ordered a hot chocolate and the rest various other drinks. The hot chocolates came out first in paper cups. Only after we gave him some questioning stares were we told by the male waiter (I think owner... More

Great food and service for dinner menu with a variety of hearty yet modern cuisine. The chicken breast on top of mini gnocchi and feta / pesto stuffing is yummo!

Brilliant friendly little restaurant in the hills! Great service and excellent coffee. If it's a pleasant quiet meal before or after a movie or just a lunch in the hills, this is the place to visit, 5 stars for service!

The Reel is just the shot when you want a quick eat before going into the Cameo Cinema to watch your film, Great food and coffee, which can be taken into the theatre if you still haven't had time drink it with your meal.

We deliberately saw a movie that ended before their closing time so we could eat meal after it. We were sat down with the menu and tried to get someone to take order. As no one came after about 20 or more minutes and it was approaching their closing time, my husband went to the counter only to be told... More

I love to come to the reel for cake and hot chocolate after a movie......or anytime really! I am not so keen on eating meals here for 2 reasons. Firstly, the food is relatively expensive. Secondly, there is never enough variety for meals (I am vegetarian). We always come here after a movie and I sometime schedule coffee meetings here... More
