“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The service here was a little awkward, but perhaps I've gotten the waiter on a bad day.

Wonderful hearty meals, great outdoor setting, amazing views in a peaceful location.
The coffee is ok. The tea choice is basic.
But it is a wonderful setting to eat and chat.

This café is situated in Scarborough overlooking water, relaxing ambience, great service, excellent food and caters for children with park area close by and lost of open space for them to play.

“Sensational outlook! Fabulous food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Reef Cafe is perfect if you enjoy getting away from the street front cafe's. it is located in a beautiful, peaceful, part of the coastline, off the Main Street area. Views of the bay towards the glasshouse mountains. Service is spot on. The food tasty, the menus offer all the favourite cafe choices with a few variations.
Coffee is excellent!
They have a area for people with dogs under a grand old tree. Away from the other tables.
It's a pleasant experience, on your own or with a group of friends.

“Get Together Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This restaurant gets busy during the day, good idea to book, no air conditioning so it is hot on occasions, they could attend to details a bit more, I think with all busy restaurants over time things can get a bit slack because the staff are busy and rushing around. It feels a bit chaotic, not the sort of place I want to go for a quiet chat with a friend but if I needed to accommodate several friends for the afternoon this is a good cafe to head off to, they have the room to set up larger tables outside and yet under cover.
