Description: The Reef recently underwent a refurbishment to the bar and restaurant and now boasts an eclectic fresh decor, where guests can relax in the ambient and modern surrounds from the best vantage point in Forster. Guests can enjoy a cocktail or beer with friends at the new outdoor/indoor bar overlooking the sparkling Wallis Lake, or they can stay for a delicious meal delicately prepared by head chef Peter Tjornelund. The menu is a fusion of Asian and European cuisine and features mouth-watering meals such as a garlic and lemon marinated pork cutlet with honey figs, roast kumara, goats cheese and pistachio. The menu also includes an all-day dining option with gourmet pizzas along with a carefully selected wine and beer menu to accompany the meals.

Had lunch here, the food was fresh and tasty and the staff were courteous and pleasant. The prices were reasonable and will be going back to sample some more of their fine food. Recommended.

“Lunch pleasant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Food average. Location excellent overlooking wAter one of the only places in forster. Funny town no one takes advantage of the wonderful views nearly all restaurants cafes etc look into the mall area with the rear of their shops backing onto the water. This restaurant advertised wi fi access not available and waiter advised in rough tone take up with management. If u need wi fi go to library or info centre.

“Lovely meal in delightful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

We ate at this restaurant whilst spending the weekend in Forster in late May. We just happened to be walking past, it was lunch time and the view from the deck looked inviting. As it was a sunny day we sat outside and had a really great lunch. We had intended to only have a light lunch but the entrees and mains were so good we finished off with desert and coffee. The food was very reasonably priced as was the wine and contrary to the views of some other reviewers we found the service to be very attentive. We will definitely return next time we are in Forster.

“Best Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We dined here on a Monday night and both had steak, we could not fault the service from go to woe, nor could we fault the meal and presentation. If we weren't on a 'road trip', then we would definitely be going back there again.

“Too little to choose from”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Too little to choose from, way too expensive for what you get and the young staff have a bad attitude. Will not return until the management gets their act into proper order.
