“A Nice Pool Bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

For a pool bar/restaurant, we were very surprised by the quality of the food and service. We ate there twice, once for dinner and once for breakfast (even though we weren't staying at the Outrigger Reef). We weren't expecting too much, but we sat by the little waterfall and had a very pleasant dinner, complete with live entertainment. Food was surprisingly good for poolside dining, and was reasonably priced. Service was attentive, but not pushy, we could sit as long as we wanted listening to the music. Nice and relaxing. Breakfast was a steal - two specials offered, or you could order off the menu. Again, nice and relaxing morning, and they put a whole pot of coffee at our table. Who does that anymore? We may just stay at the Reef the next time we are in town!

“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you want great food in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is the place to go. They have a 3 piece band playing every night and pleasant whilst eating dinner out under the stars

“Best restaurant at Outrigger Reef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Of the restaurants in the Outrigger Reef this was our favourite – the best for breakfast too. Very friendly staff, food ok to good for what it was. Nice atmosphere too especially with the live music in the evenings.
