We recently dined here for a friend's Birthday and decided to take advantage of their "Locals' Night". I mentioned the special occasion when I booked and we were shown to a lovely private table next to the windows. What an excellent view! Service was friendly...More

We chose Reef to celebrate a special occasion. We were seated on a table in an empty restaurant and interestingly the waitress chose to seat us on a table with a cement post that obstructed our view. Our meals were varied, my duck was undercooked...More

It's unfortunate I cannot give this place high rating but he price warranted so much more! I think we paid for the location and as it was dark, it might as well have been in the middle of nowhere. Average decor - very much like...More

Had a lovely dinner here last night with 17 others & 4 children for a friend's 70th birthday. It was a busy night for staff with the restuarant full and they couldn't have been nicer. Food was great with either Soft shell crab or Pork...More
