This is a local gathering place right on the waterfront. While it is a casual atmosphere, they go out of their way to make sure the diners have a good experience. Everyone mingles and compares notes on their day which makes it quite lively. Rib night is one worth trying!

My wife and I recently returned from a week of diving on Salt Cay. The other restaurant, Porters, was closed for vacation but it didn't matter as we had great food and service from the staff here. In all we had 8 lunches and 6 dinners. Our arrival day coincided with the Wednesday Conch special consisting of conch ceviche, conch... More

We just returned from a week on gorgeous Salt Cay and enjoyed four delicious dinners at Coral Reef. The food is terrific, particularly the island-style fish with peas and rice, as well as the cracked conch and the ribs. The sunset views from the open bar and seating area are spectacular and we were treated to two nights of whales... More

The food is outstanding, the views and ambiance give the restaurant a laid back island feel, and the associated dive shop has to... More

We stayed a block away and visited the restaurant every day, not always to eat but to visit with the people that came by. It is right on the beach so we would wander over to watch the sunsets or have a drink. The fish sandwiches and the ribs are freakin AMAZING. Anya is a superb cook and was very... More

If you are lucky enough to find yourself on Salt Cay for an afternoon or a month, you will find that this little place is at the hub of island life. Besides the delicious food, there is a view of the Columbus Passage for whale sighting, amazing fresh lime margaritas, sunset viewing, and a chance to see and hear the... More

You are so sweet. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We all loved having you and sure hope you join us again in the near future. Whales are still here, but thinning out big time. There is always next year. Thanks again for coming to Salt Cay. More

Debbie and her staff are friendly and they run a very nice grill. We were there for rib night, and the ribs were tasty.
