We enjoyed two dinners and one breakfast at the Reef, during two short stays on St Lucia in February and early March 2017, in transit from Toronto to St Vincent, and back. It's a funky little place very near the beach. Tables and chairs are rustic, wooden, and scattered around under the trees. Sand between your toes. During daytime a... More

The best place to soak up some rays and enjoy the beach one last time. Reasonable prices and lovely beach-side eating.

Super beach bar with free wifi on the wonderful Sandy Beach. Menu has a strong north american flavour but there are more local style options including fish of the day.

We visited Sandy Beach & The Reef three times in one week. We found the entire atmosphere very inviting and family-friendly. We had burgers and fries, which were both very filling and reasonably priced. We also had pizza twice - first time we ever had tuna on our pizza, but it was good! We appreciated having reasonably priced food that... More

I think our group was at The Reef at least 4 times during the week. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner. From eggs and sausage to burgers, calamari and pizza. Loved it all. Their drinks are awesome, the view of the beautiful beach was amazing, and the staff were fantastic -- props to Dru and Tracy for making us feel... More

Very good food. Pizzas, fish, burgers and Pitons! They take credit cards and are extremely helpful. It's right next to a windsurfing club so there's always plenty to do and people to see. Thanks for the great stay.

Been there for dinner maybe five times. The food is delicious, wonderful cool beach environment. The only bad thing is that they take too long to prepare the meal at times. The sea view and sounds was a plus for me.

Very nice place to stay, eat and relax. Food is excelent. Right on one of the nicest beaches of St lucia. Close to the Airport, so many travelers come here before getting in or a out of the airport. Outside tables are in shade of almond trees with birds and happy dogs around. Our children loved them. Great place to... More

The Reef Beach Cafe is open 7 days per week, from 8:00 am till 10:00 pm (Mondays until 6pm), and offers a simple but nicely varied menu of Creole and international (sea)food, a range of fast foods (including home made pizza), breakfast, fresh milkshakes, cappuccinos, cold beers and hot cocktails, at prices as low as we can keep them, making The Reef affordable to both locals and visitors. The Reef Kite + Surf is located right next to The Reef Beach Cafe, and there are tables inside as well as outside under the gum and sea grape trees on the beach.
