Authentic Greek at its best

Friendly staff and good food, eg. the fresh fish and spaghetti; fantastic location on the quiet part of Petra harbour front.

we went to the reef expecting more and were a bit disappointed. Although the meal was nice the staff we found not to be as friendly as the other restaraunts we visited there are much nicer places to eat in our opinion although a lot of people seem to go to the reef.

Very clean, helpful staff & good size portions. Great views especially at sun set! Maybe the only draw back is the traffic. Don't like credit cards take cash.

The restaurant overlooks the beach- a beautiful spot to have dinner at sunset. The food was good as well as the service. However, due to the eating area being on the street we were disturbed by some migrants who came into the area begging for food. We only witnesses this on one other part of the island. Obviously, this is... More

Very nice Greek food and excellent service from the Reef team. I can certainly say that this is the best Greek restaurant in Petra (and we tried 10).
