The Height of Luxury At The Reef House Day Spa & Restaurant

The Reef House offers our guests not just a place to stay, but an experience. Our dining and relaxation options help you get away from the boring and the normal into the extraordinary. To help you better imagine yourself enjoying all that our part of Palm Cove has to offer, we’ve put together this short article on what we can offer our visitors.

A gourmet’s delight

For those looking to experience the finest in Queensland cooking, The Reef House Restaurant offers a delectable five-star experience at all hours of the day. Led by head chef Ashe Lewis – a nationally-travelled and experienced chef who’s worked from Melbourne to Port Douglas – our culinary staff create wonders using only the freshest local produce.

With fruits and vegetables sourced from Mossman or the nearby Daintree and seafood caught fresh from the very waters the hotel overlooks, Chef Lewis sees his role as more bringing out the natural beauty of the food, not replacing it. True to this, our menu is full of simple, elegant dishes such as tiger prawn and chorizo linguini, sesame yellow fin tuna tataki and our signature of crispy wild-caught barramundi with Thai red curry. For those looking to better know Chef Lewis’ vision, he offers a seven-course degustation with matched wines, taking visitors on a culinary journey.

The Reef House Restaurant also serves a delicious breakfast every day, with both hot and cold continental and a la carte options available. Enjoy a fresh muffin and Ransom filtered coffee, or tuck into a plate of tropical banana pancakes finished with toffee sauce and hazelnut praline.
