This is an a attractive restaurant with a bit of flair. The menu has things that are a bit unusual and creative. We had a delicious shrimp ceviche, ravioli with braised beef and the pasta with pesto was superb. A cut above !

A beautiful restaurant tucked into a courtyard, we ran upon it and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful surprise! The food was excellent and the service was not only great but engaging with a great local wine list. Highly recommend.

This is a delightful small and intimate restaurant with a lovely ambiance. We hadn't booked but were lucky enough to get a table. The restaurant was busy and lots of the other patrons seemed to be locals as they were known to the staff - a good sign. Food was delicious, and my dish of simple pasta with broccoli and... More

We had been getting a soaking on a daily basis and were losing the heart to venture far into SML when we spotted Reve. It has a small entrance, but once inside is much larger than it would appear and is decorated in upmarket, muted, vintage tones and furnishings. A the weather was so foul on a midweek lunchtime, the... More

Excellent food, reasonably priced, and charming ambiance. You will not be disappointed. The food is extremely fresh and offers a nice twist incorporating fresh seafood with coastal Italian classics. The total package!

We tried this restaurant by accident, because it was close to where we were staying in SML and I noticed some guys sitting out front who looked like a group of locals (they were) -- it's a bit removed from the main road (at the end of a small alleyway) so it's easy to overlook and miss. So glad we... More
