The wife and I decided to have a quiet night out and a nice meal. The Reef House filled the bill nicely. The meals and service were excellent. Seated just overlooking the deck and the beach. Great spot.

We had a beautiful meal at Reef House, sitting outside under the old gum tree. Service was attentive and the food was delicious. We are Accor members so received 50% discount off food - but regardless, it was excellent value and we will go again.
