Wine & Cocktail List

"We want the whole dining experience to be memorable. The wine experience contributes in the same way and makes it more special, and when asked we're always happy to share a bit of the story of a wine, its origins, the winemaking, the vineyard and the vintage"

- Michele Smantello, The Reef House Sommelier

Our Carefully Curated Wine List

With an emphasis on showcasing quality Australian and imported wines, our Sommelier has crafted an impressive wine list to complement our award-winning food menu that celebrates the flavours of Tropical North Queensland. 

The wine list is a constant work in progress and its contents are re-visited on a weekly basis, keeping the offering vibrant, creative, with depth and nuances. 

We offer on average 250 different labels at any given time, our list truly does have something for every wine drinker. Our talented Sommelier is on hand to share his knowledge and find the perfect drop to match your meal and your tastebuds. 

Tropical Cocktail List

Designed to compliment the exquisite tropical surrounds, our cocktail list  compromises of aromatic and fruity cocktails, aperitifs, martinis and mocktails.

Our talented bartenders have created some original libations, as well as put the Reef House touch on some much-loved classics such as the Pina Colada with caramelised pineapple, or Espresso Martini with Barenjager honey liqueur.
