Really lovely spot overlooking the beach. Good food, substantial wine & drinks list. Great service.

Picked this restaurant as a mid-point to meet for Sydney and Newcastle couples. On a hot summer day it was a lovely setting.

Extremely disappointed with the position of our table - we were plonked right in front of a pylon in the middle of the restaurant. It was our wedding anniversary & it completely detracted from the experience given we booked the restaurant based on the available views & open windows. The service we received was great as was the food. But we left feeling very disappointed.

Great views and service! One of the classier restaurants on the coast with ocean frontage.

Very good dining experience! Well prepared food, good portions and high quality ingredients. Service was excellent and the view from our table was great. We have dined here before, when visiting Terrigal, and will definitely dine here again.

We had a lovely meal, the service was great and beautiful views (which would be better during the day of course). Couldn't fault the food, it was just not exceptional in any way. The food, while prepared very well, seemed to be designed for someone with quite bland taste. There was no real pushing the boundaries or trying anything different. Amazing wine list but I'm pregnant so couldn't indulge.

Did not stock the wines on the wine list. Drank inferior & less than acceptable wine. Waitress had no knowledge of wines so could not advise an alternative. Entrees served before anyone had received a drink. Disappointing night.

About Reef

Tie the knot at Reef The name gives you a clue but nothing prepares you for the amazing waterfront views at Reef Restaurant in Terrigal. The Pacific Ocean at its best, an attractive Central Coast town and an award-winning restaurant. It’s that type of triple threat that makes Reef so special. As a top-rated modern Australian fine dining restaurant, you can expect the best and you will experience it when it comes to atmosphere, service, location, views and the food. It’s no surprise that this restaurant is a favoured place for date nights, special occasions and weddings. Whatever the size of your dining party, expect the friendly staff at the Reef to cater to your every wish. Whether you opt for the degustation menu, the platters or choose a la carte we expect that you will be delighted. Locals say the mixed oyster platter is a “stand out”, the lamb rack and barramundi are definitely recommended and the desserts are to die for. Best dish: Beef fillet with potato and horseradish gallette, caramelised fennel and onion jam served with Café de Paris butter.
