Reef house presents really well from the street, a beautiful setting opposite the beach framed by magnificent paper bark trees. The food is really very good, in fact it's hard to fault at all but the service is painful with way too much hard sell,...More

Wonderful view over the ocean. Food and service ok however the time from order to delivery was not ok and we came late so the big lunch rush was over. Seems to be a nice hotel as well

Enjoyed a beautiful breakfast then went back for dinner. Great open setting overlooking the beach and ocean. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We loved the atmosphere of stepping back in time. Loads of timber features, open spaces and airy dining. Would definitely go back.
