Reef House Restaurant is a true gem! Both the food/wine and service were impeccable. The duck & porcini risotto was to die for - so much so that we tried to return on our last night for more but unfortunately they were fully booked. Make a reservation in busy times - it is really worth the visit - cannot recommend this place highly enough!!

We had made a booking for a 5 course degustation @$120 each and was told at the time of booking our table would be set with all the right cutlery. When we arrived no cutlery was set and after waiting 15 minutes with still no one asking us for a drink we got up and walked out!! Vivo down the road was very impressed we spent our $300 with them.

Disappointed is the only thing we can say about our dinner. It started out OK, friendly greeting sat at nice table over looking the beach, but then we waited, waited for drinks, waited to order, waited for food and we couldn't wait to leave.

My wife and I traveled to Palm Cove from Cairns for dinner during our vacation in June 2013. I'd recommend going to Palm Cove over the places is Cairns at every opportunity. Better selection. This night we ended up at Reef House after our original destination was closed (be wary, not all places are open on M-Tues). Loved the atmosphere of this place, open air, facing the ocean). Service was good, and food was really good. Took a little longer that we were accustom (but all places is Australia seem to make dinner more of an experience allowing more time for each course and the check). I had the asian barramundi and a pear and rocket salad, my wife had the pumpkin gnocchi and both were very good.

We enjoyed the seafood taster as an entree, followed by the duck for main course and vanilla creme brûlée to finish. All were delicious, fresh and well presented and exceeded our expectations from the menu descriptions. We found a nice Tasmanian Pinot to accompany, which was fairly priced and well cellared. The service headed by Alexander was professional, welcoming and made the night special. No hesitation in recommending this as a must visit in Palm Cove.
