About Reef House Restaurant
The prime location for tropical dining, Reef House Restaurant has been here since the 60's nestled under the magnificent Melaleuca trees and palms. Today, the views across to the coral sea still take your breath away and the candlelit night ambiance is intimate and romantic.
Our menus offer a variety of dishes using the amazing fresh produce of North Queensland, our wine list will compliment any choice and discerning palette. Our six course degustation menu with matching wines, is the perfect way to experience a little of all our dinner dishes.

Due to the present situation limited menu.food quality and service very good
Food was amazing for dinner and breakfast. Can not fault it!
I had a reservation for 2, confirmed over the phone and via email for dinner last night. When we arrived, looking forward to a lovely dinner out, there was no one there! No staff, no bar open, no restaurant open. We telephoned and email but no response until this request for feedback. Extremely disappointing and thank goodness another great restaurant in town looked after us.
Staff were very accommodating to our family and food was really yummy!would definitely go back
The Reef House has been our favourite Palm Cove restaurant for many years and we were happy to see it open again .
Lovely cozy style hotel. Rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Staff very helpful. Meal in restaurant was excellent. Very relaxing and peaceful weekend away. Many thanks
We had the degustation menu... it was “AMAZING”, every about it was 10 out of 10, the presentation, the taste, everything. This night was a special occasion and the meal did not disappoint. We will definitely be back again. Service was also spot on. Great job guys👌
It is no denying that the food and presentation by chefs at the Reef House exceeds a lot of establishments in Palm Cove. However, the service or lack thereof as a resort diner was atrocious and unfortunately detracted from the entire dining experience. In particular the lack of clearing of plates, the lack of disinterest by the head waiter and the failure to request after the plates were eventually cleared after 20 minutes of finishing, if we were indeed after any dessert/appertifs etc. Whilst we had set out to enjoy a dessert from this critically acclaimed establishment, based on the lack of service we declined and left feeling underwhelmed by the experience. Such a shame as there is real, authentic opportunity here.
First class in all respects.
Absolutely delicious and friendly staff 😊
Beautiful location. We had the lunch special and the food was yummy and the wine fab. Highly recommended. We will be back
I think this is the best restaurant in Palm Cove, great location and top class food
The food was really nice and service was great. Some music to create a nice ambiance would have been good.
Lovely night - Beautiful food and wonderful staff- thank you
Lovely lunch, good service.
We have a lovely evening. Our meal was amazing! Lovely surroundings. I’ll definitely be back 😊😊
Excellent stay - the room, staff and food were all amazing and it was a great way to end our honeymoon
great place to dine,service was friendly ,efficient,professional,food excellent.
Booked for a special occasion (which was acknowledged on the booking form) but there was no acknowledgement during the night - we were a bit disappointed. Food was ok, lacked a little in seasoning but overall was ok. Service was a little slow but maybe that’s the way it’s done in Palm Cove. Good night out but not something memorable.
Fantastic location, Carey was outstanding as per usual every time we return... people like her really make the place exceptional. I really enjoyed breakfast as well as dinner. The food is excellent.
I live in Melbourne and only come to Palm Cove a couple of times a year but Reef House never fails to impress, I love it
Desert not served by waitress who took order, resulting in confusion about who ordered what. We would have ordered a bottle of wine but waitress thought we wanted two glass only. More confusion. We have dined here on a number of occasions over the past 20 years; it was our go to restaurant for special occasions, but may have slipped back recently.
Need some lower priced wines on the list, the cheapest is $60 and there are only a couple at that price. Flute player in the restaurant was mournful - music to slit your wrists by - he should stick to classical rather than pops from the 60's. A decent playlist would have been preferable but it needs to be good, not elevator music or the type of thing you shop to in Coles. Staff were lovely, especially Elise.
Slow service with trainees on
