“Fantastic meal!”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

Just had another fantastic meal at The Reef. We have been coming to the Isle of Wight for years and was recommended The Reef and we have not been disappointed. The hamburger was the best I have had and we have travelled to America 5 times. The cod was beautiful and the freshly made pizza was delicious. Lovely evening looking out to sea too. Staff were all lovely who couldn't do enough for you. Thank you.

“recommend you try it!”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

I visited The Reef on 28th July with my husband and 2 children. Lovely location overlooking the sea. Food was cooked without delay and all four meals were very generous in size and all delicious. Service was pleasant, couldn't fault anything. Well worth a visit.

“Great value & pleasant outdoor tables overlooking the beach”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

£66 dinner for 3 with starters and a bottle of Chablis. Excellent value Nicely presented grub and nice staff. Sitting outside looking over the beach on a warm summer evening helped too.

“Excellent food, excellent price.”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

Went to The Reef for lunch. Place is very nicely done out and very inviting. I myself wanted a small lunch and chose the Chicken and Bacon tagliatelle with garlic bread but a Deli size for supposedly the smaller appetite, there was a very generous serving!! Beautifully cooked and only £5.95 for this size, which I think would be suitable for someone with a larger appetite (else £9.95 for the larger size). Menu had lots of choice and all the meals seemed very large and many came with a tasty fresh salad and chips - 'The reef club sandwich' was very nice.

Would highly recommend this place. Very good prize for the food served.
