Would definitely book,( if it wasn't low season,) we didn't and got in,as we were reasonably early 6.45pm, but others missed out who turned up after 7.30pm! Food was yummy, especially the Seafood platter for one!

I took my boyfriend to this place for his birthday dinner and oh boy we had a fantastic time. Service was really good and friendly, food was amazing, and the whole experience was very enjoyable. We will definitely be back on our next visit in Palm Cove.

We had the best meal of the week at Reef House Restaurant. Expensive but well worth it. Beautiful location overlooking the Coral Sea with great service.

The location of the Reef House is excellent with water views. Even when it is raining all is good. The menu, though small provides a good selection of local food.
