A word from The Reef Caribbean - Victoria
Though the Caribbean isles are well known to outsiders, Caribbean cuisine remains a hidden gem. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with the eclectic Caribbean fare and drinks at The Reef.
The Reef's menus sparkle with plates inspired by the styles and tastes of the Caribbean. Midday mealtime selections showcase flavourful West Indian curries paired with white rice, refreshing coleslaw, sweet mango chutney, and dahi, served vegetarian or with a choice of chicken or goat. The calypso oxtail makes stomachs anti-grumble with a savoury bone-in beef stew, brewed and stocked with a hearty helping of potatoes and carrots over rice and peas. For dinner, the Kingston quesadilla envelops either jerk chicken or tofu, peppers, melty cheddar, and refried beans, and the coco prawns roll around in toasted coconut before putting on a cool minted avocado yoghurt ski-bunny costume. Brunch items include plantain chips, huevos rancheros, and ackee and salads.

    The food was delicious. It was so delicious and filling. Just not the place to go for an anniversary dinner like we made the mistake of doing. They didn't do anythung to make it special. The prices were normal and the quality was excellent.

  • Tasty Carribean Lunch

    Dined on 1/10/2014
    Lots of tasty choices, including options for vegetarians, that are filling and good value. Ambience is great, with apropriate music and decor suitable for a carribean theme. Waiter was great but service is a bit on 'island time' so if you are coming for lunch, make sure you allow enough time.
