Description: The Urban Reef is an informal bar, cafe, deli and restaurant located right on the beach. We have our own farm where we grow much of our own produce and we're passionate about local, ethical and seasonal food. We have some of the best views in the country right over the bay and are just a few metres from the sand. Cafe by day, and restaurant by night with our own in house baker and incredible coffee we look forward to looking after you any time of the day. We're fans of praise in public and criticise in private, so any problems, ideally email the owner Mark we'll always try to make things up to you. Any praise then please tell TripAdvisor and the world. All the best x

The service is appalling, they run around like headless chickens taking orders but forget you the moment their backs are turned. If your happy to wait and take 2 hours to get your food and drink, then this is your place.

Sticky toffee pudding is dry and you get plain ice cream , not the salted caramel on the menu. Slow service .

We visited urban reef this morning for our 6th wedding anniversary brunch. When my husband booked the table the gentleman he spoke to couldn’t be nicer! They gave us a beautiful table over looking the beautiful beach front. Our two servers, Sophie and Olivia (Liv), went above and beyond to make sure our day was extra special. The breakfast martini was delicious as was our food. My husband had the full breakfast and I had the eggs florentine. Everything tasted fresh, clean, and full of flavour. Also very reasonable prices. Thanks again girls for such a great start to our day. It was lovely!
