    Could not fault our dining experience today and this has been the case for the last several visits. Food and service were perfect and all at a fair price. Thankyou

    Spectacular view from this restaurant! When the restaurant is fully booked it can be very noisy but today was a quiet day so more enjoyable. The food is delicious and beautifully presented as well as being reasonably priced. Two courses plus a glass of wine for $55 great value!

    We can always depend on the Reef to provide us with a delicious meal in a beautiful setting. The weekly lunch specials are good value & enable us to take friends there without worrying about a huge bill.

    My family and I regularly eat at Reef particularly for special occasions. We are always impressed with the service and quality of the food. I'm planning on having the degustation menu (again) for a wedding anniversary and fully expect it to be amazing just like last time!

    The Reef consistently produces fabulous delicious food pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. The view is heavenly and beautiful on a hot summers day to soak in the beach and bay. The service was oustanding too! Whats not to love?! ALWAYS recommended!!

    Best seafood feast I've had! Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. The service was good but slow but the food made up for it. Wish we had time to stay for the desserts but with a toddler in tow and the speed of the service we couldn't risk waiting. Would recommend, would go back!

    The Reef Restaurant never disappoints. Our table at the window over the beach was fantastic. Our waitress was beautiful and the food and wine were superb. Can't fault it. Thanks so much. We will be back.

About the restaurant

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.
