We were visiting Molyvos and we decided to have our meal before going back to Mitilini and we selected this place while we were driving. I had read some good comments about the place. As a standard Greek taverna, we ordered mainly seafoods, octopus, fish, shrimp...we haven't have a bad experience and also we ordered some house wine, we liked... More

At the reef, you can sit practically on the beach, and enjoy the good food, and friendly service. The best food we had during our holiday in Petra.

This restaurant was brilliant, food was so tasty.I had stuffed tomatoes, so flavoursome! The atmosphere was great we sat beach side and watched the sunset, good service & great value. With several glasses of wine and beers as well as the food we ate this was only 25eur.

Excellent pizza ! And my more traditional moussaka was delicious. Very friendly staff. Red wine served in small bottle and was cold ( but pleasant) . We sat on one of the tables right near the road which wasn't busy but if we visit again would wait for a table further in. One of our more expensive meals but still... More

This is an excellent restaurant in the traditional sense. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty. There are traditional greek dishes along with fresh fish caught on a daily basis. Great place to watch a beautiful sunset and eat well prepared food. Very friendly and you are well looked after.

we ate here three times during our stay in petra, Tastewise reef is the best in petra, great lamb kleftiko, and also the meatballs in tomato sauce are quite good. The service and food are just a bit more sophisticated then the you get in the other tavernas. Nothing too fancy though, still a nice and friendly atmosphere.

Costas is an absolute star and he and his team produce great food and a very warm welcome. This is a great family run restaurant where you always get high quality and good value. People return again and again and in the 14 years we have been visiting Petra, The Reef has become a really important part of our holiday..... More
