After a lovely weekend on the tableland decided to have lunch on the way home. We gave our order to the Maitre d fish in batter and Bug and crab linguine. Asked if there was any garlic or crusty bread to have with the pasta, I didn't think this was an unreasonable request. The reply was. This isn't that type... More

Returned to eat here after two years away. The food is still excellent. I ordered the gnocchi and it was so soft, tender and delicious. My friend ordered the curried barramundi and found enjoyed it too. The restaurant is right on the beach and you can dine outside whilst you listen to the waves and enjoy a gentle warm breeze.

We booked this restaurant because it seemed to have an interesting menu and was well located, but left very disappointed. I had the scallops with pork belly to start. The scallops were tiny. My wife had the mushroom croquettes. They seemed burnt and were dry. For mains, I ordered the rack of lamb, medium rare. When it arrived, it was... More

Lunch for six people on a Friday afternoon with the restaurant half full. They brought four menus. Ordered a bottle of cider and a bottle of wine. Several minutes until the cider arrived but no glass other than the wine glasses on the table. Several more minutes until the wine arrived after the server told us she had to go... More

Being one of the "flagship" Accor restaurants, we expected some fairly decent food. The decor is pretty good, very colonial and trendy but this is about the only good thing that can be said. Firstly, my partner is vegetarian and the only option they had for lunch was a panini or a salad side dish. Not even a single proper... More

We dined here twice: once for lunch, and most recently for dinner. On both occasions the service and cuisine were excellent. For lunch we shared an excellent seafood platter for two, and mango cheesecake desert - both beautifully done. Subsequently we returned for a really tasty dinner: shared seafood entree followed by a duck confit and a red curry barramundi... More

Omg. My husband and i walked around palmcove for a special meal for our last night in palm cove. We had the degustation menu. It was truly amazing. In all of my years, i have never tasted anything that comes close to the reef house restaurant. Not only was the meal superb, but the waiting staff were very attentive and... More
