We had had a l-o-n-g day that started with a hot air balloon ride (ie: 3am start) so by the time we got to dinner we were so tired we were not really hungry. However, my birthday dinner was important so we just ordered a seafood plate entre and a glass of wine each. It was absolutely delicious and we were very happy to just leave it there but the waitress seemd so shocked that we were only having an entre that we felt guilty so ordered a desert as well. I have a dairy allergy and she was very helpful in ensuring that what we ordered would not cause me any problems. Very happy with the meal and the service.

Great location, great food and anew some atmosphere. This was our second meal here and once again it did not disappoint. The service is great and the meals ate very special. Will definitely go back again when we next visit palm cove.

Service a very slow for the season that is at its peak and busy should really have extra staff on to assist. However service once had was 5 star. Magical venue sitting under the stars opposite the beach listening to the waves surrounded by melealuca trees. We had to wait for a while seemed initially for ever, to be served once served the service was fabulous. Around 6 main meals to chose from on the menu with one special. No vegetarian dishes as such. No nice main salads to choose either. Mains $38.00 each. Glass of wine from $11.50-over $ 20. Beer $8.00 os so. I had a lovely local caught fish in a red thai sauce. Was lovely. MY father had a steak he did not like it. Said it was to thready and over cooked. Mother Prawn Risotto. Bread was okay I assume made on the premise. Magic surrounding. I suspect a little over priced. However when dinning on holidays with family always a treat.

Quality has declined somewhat over the years. Service has been slow even for a night with only half tables full. Definitely more training for the young staff. We had the degustation and some dishes were quite good but others were a bit bland.

We were looking for a lovely place to enjoy our evening with good food & good wine. The Reef House was it. Interesting menu, good timing between courses & knowledgeable servers. Would definitely recommend & go back. Smaller wine list than we expected but with good choices available.
