We have regularly dined from one end of Palm Cove to the other -- but smack in the middle is the Reef House Restaurant, and it remains one of our favourites. Each time we stay in Palm Cove we have dinner there about four times and the food is consistently good. The menu is not as expansive as some restaurants... More

This place is friendly, proactive and really know what a menu should look like. This is small menu but with great diversity and is what a restaurant should be. Great food, amazing service but most of all this place is reasonably priced yet the food is 5 star. The tiger prawns and barramundi was well worth it and I would... More

Had a light lunch here after spending two hours having a spa treatment. Was light, tangy and beautifully presented - salt and pepper calamari on Asian salad. The service was fabulous and we were served by a beautifully presented waitress (Polish). We actually were given COLD water - the first time at any restaurant that we had got cold water... More

Came here two years ago and was understaffed and so bad we walked out and rated a ZERO. Tried again this year and was very pleasantly surprised. What an improvement. The Chef is to be congratulated rating a 10 as was the service. Rooms Div Mgr also showed us the investment in room improvements. We'll be back real soon.

If you’re looking for top-notch, innovative contemporary dining then this restaurant should be high on your to-do list in Palm Cove. We opted for the degustation menu with matched wines and we’re so glad we did. Every item was presented impeccably, tasted incredible and paired with a wine that enhanced the already amazing flavours. The staff were terrific in explaining... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week and ate twice at the Reef House restaurant. The second occasion was on a busy Saturday night when we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. Our table was right at the front of the decking with an amazing view of the esplanade and the Coral sea and as the wind dropped right off... More
