Lovely friendly staff, great food.lovely views across the sea. And very romantic. Lovely way to relax at the end of a long day. Great place to go with a group of friends or as a couple. Easy walking distance from sandowns high streat just have a nice cold relaxing drink or a lovely meal that is not expensive.

We went for lunch, great views of the sea and spacious dining space.
Staff all looked smart and everything looked clean and tidy.
Food was very good; pulled pork burger was tangy and tasty, the lamb shanks were delicious and fell off the bone and washed down well with a nice pint of Peroni.
The service wasn't exactly express, however for a lazy lunch in the sunshine it was hard to fault and we will definitely be going back.
Nice fish tank in one corner and big TV showing ocean scenes in the other, in addition kids have colouring sheets etc and their own tasty menu so, as I say, hard to fault.

Been to the Reef a few times now, upon visiting the island on holiday. The food never disappoints, the menu is very varied and something for everyone. Pizzas are lovely! The puddings are to die for and not too heavy after your meal. The staff are friendly and attentive. Will visit again in the future.

Visited The reef on our first night in Sandown. The seafood risotto was to die for. Good service and value for money. We even returned for a second visit late in our stay. Unfortunately we sat outside with an on coming storm. No fault of the restaurant but bear in mind if you are going without booking.

Good food in a great location! The sun was shining and the fish served was perfect. It made us feel we were back in the Med but it was better than that, it was the Isle of Wight.
