We were recommended to try here for it's chicken + gravy dishes and also their Mac n Cheese! The recommendation was perfect for this!! It's not the biggest of menu's and if you don't like the shouting when sports are on - it's not the best of choices. However, what it does there, it does well. The drinks were also... More

Great food, coldest beers and best vibe and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Also conveiently close to the pier if you looking for a cool place to hang out while waiting for your ferry. I will definately be back soon.

We just stopped in for drinks during happy hour. Three of us had one cocktail each. The Long Island Tea was very mediocre and had too much cola. The Pina Colada wasn't the worst I've had, but not far from it. The margarita was pretty much the worst ever. The music left much to be desired as well. On the... More

Spent a day in here pretty much. Had a few drinks (strong too) and played a couple board games. Was good that they have games to pass the time. Especially in rainy season.

Had dinner here twice when staying in the hostel across the road. Great rotisserie chicken. I ordered an extra portion of chips, which were as good as back home. The second time I had the reef burger which was equally as good as the chicken. Great value for money.

We came here twice for breakfast. We really liked the french toast. The scrambled eggs aren't special. They are okay. We had better eggs for a better price at other restaurants.

Johnnychopsticks, Owner at Reef Sports Bar & Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. I did check our scrambled eggs a few times cooked by different staff and they were fine for me. I am fully aware after years owning the Reef Bar that not every dish suits everyone's taste. I have certain restaurants where I go on Koh Tao for certain dishes that I like. You visited twice...
