Description: The Reef recently underwent a refurbishment to the bar and restaurant and now boasts an eclectic fresh decor, where guests can relax in the ambient and modern surrounds from the best vantage point in Forster. Guests can enjoy a cocktail or beer with friends at the new outdoor/indoor bar overlooking the sparkling Wallis Lake, or they can stay for a delicious meal delicately prepared by head chef Peter Tjornelund. The menu is a fusion of Asian and European cuisine and features mouth-watering meals such as a garlic and lemon marinated pork cutlet with honey figs, roast kumara, goats cheese and pistachio. The menu also includes an all-day dining option with gourmet pizzas along with a carefully selected wine and beer menu to accompany the meals.

“Best steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Very delightful. Limited menu however a top quality meal. Best steak I've had for a long while. Good Wine lists and not expensive. Top location with nice views. A must for dinner.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

There are very few restaurants now in Forster so our choice was The Reef it was pretty good 2 shared seafood platter pretty good not too much padding with fries. Our other dishes were the fish all cooked very well & fresh, good deserts, pricing ok as so few decent restaurants to choose from.

“Fresh and honest food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The menu contains a good variety that should suit all tastes. We went for something light and thoroughly enjoyed our choices of a chicken and pear salad and prawn linguine. The salad contained a mixture of textures and flavours that kept you interested in the dish. The linguine I was told, was excellent with the flavours and richness nicely balanced. Service was friendly, professional and unhurried. A appropriate wine menu that was reasonably priced and a nice atmosphere all contributed to a nice evening.
