With Porter's closed, this is the only restaurant left (unless YOU buy Porter's). Good food, reasonably priced and ice cold beer. Of course, real friendly people. The fresh fish is always a good bet. Surprisingly, the special Sunday night rib dinner was great. But make sure you reserve in advance as they only make enough for those who have. And,... More

Coral Reef is the only eatery open on the island for much of the year (Island Thyme does 4-5 months from Thanksgiving unte whales leave). As almost everythinga, bar fish, is imported that of necessity means the menu is limited but it is well cooked nevertheless. Debbie's Sunday night ribs being a highlight. The conch feast didn't go down quite... More

Coral Reef sits right on the beach. Wonderful place to sit and eat, have a drink and watch the sun go down. You can keep a tab and pay when you leave the island. Staff is friendly and service is great. Rib night is well worth going to. There is plenty of food and lively conversation. Great way to meet... More

Dined here a few times during our week long stay. Debbie, the proprietor, was gracious as always. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and to top it off, the ocean view is just outstanding. Buy a drink and hang out here. Awesome!

We just returned from our fourth trip to Salt Cay and had three delicious meals at Coral Reef. Antonia's fish is worth the trip to the island! The restaurant is an open-air space right on the Caribbean side of the island, so the sunset views are spectacular and if you are on the island during whale migration season, a great... More

Located next to Salt Cay Divers, this a great place to get a soda or coffee between dives, or to have lunch after diving. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For lunch, the fish sandwich and burgers are excellent, and the freshly made fries are tasty and crisp. Sunday is BBQ night. The ribs were tender and delicious. The... More

We really enjoyed the food here. Fresh fish and addictive fresh-cut chips. Super casual, right on the beach, friendly staff. Like everyplace on Salt Cay, you don't exactly get a quiet table and keep to yourself - there's community to this place that's really welcoming and fun. Thanks for a great week, Debbie, we'll see you (and your pie!) next... More
