This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. I read some reviews and was a little unsure. However, off we went, arriving just before 9PM. A group of ladies were leaving and said the food was good but their service had been appalling. We stood for ages at the door waiting to be seated being blatantly ignored by the waitresses walking past us. Eventually we sat down with menus. 20 mins later we still had not ordered despite repeatedly asking the passing waitresses who all just walked off. After about 35minutes we finally had drinks. Our starters arrived soon afterwards, promptly followed by our mains. My steak and the Mrs garlic prawn pasta were delicious, as were the starters of gratin prawns and crispy chicken. We suddenly had excellent service, but soon realised why ! The restaurant closed at 10 ! ! They wanted us out. Others around us seemed to be waiting an eternity for food and bills. Some even went up to the counter to order and collect their own drinks. In fairness, our service was eventually ok and the food was actually good. Our top tip is go there late on and you will be served much quicker. We clearly saw that the waitresses could be slow, bordering on totally ignorant, which is a real shame but a running theme here.

We chose this restaurant because the prices looked fair and the interior looked nice. We suspected that we had made a good choice when we saw our food. When we tasted it we realised that Rib N Reef was a find. The fish and aubergine curry came with rice and dahl and two relishes. It was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The Jasmin rice that came with the lamb curry contained raisins and cashew nuts and the dish, including relishes and salad, was excellent. With two beers the bill came to £24. The staff were kind and the atmosphere was good as the restaurant was packed with happy people. We look forward to exploring the menu on future visits.

On arriving first impressions were good, friendly staff and clients. I ordered the chicken scallop stuffed with cheese and garlic, when it arrived it was a huge piece of chicken not what I expected and on cutting into the thickest part it was still raw! I told the waiter who did not apologise or seem at all concerned. He came back to tell me the chef was cooking another one, he did not consult me about whether I wanted another or something else. I decided to ask for a Caesar salad as I thought it would not take too long as my husband was already halfway through his meal. After a long wait and as my husband had already now finished his meal I asked for the salad to be put in a takeaway box to which the waiter seemed quite annoyed. To add further insult on opening the salad once home it was certainly not a traditional Ceaser salad. Maybe they can cook beef well but please don’t go for anything else.

My girlfriend and I visited without any reservations, and were able to get a table. It was a busy time because of valentines day, there was a mix up with our meal, and it was given to an adjacent table, it was returned and then brought to our table, my girl wasn't best pleased, but these things happen,the owner(I assume) was apologetic and the meal was worth a 5 star rating. I feel if they were better organised, they'd have a faster turnover of customers, and I would definitely go back, unfortunately I would not be able to convince my partner. She rated it with one star, I find this very unfair.

We went for a spontaneous visit here and had high hopes as it’s always busy. To start the tall waiter was so unpleasant, when we asked for the house gin he said they didn’t have it but 1 shot of tanqueray was 350 rupees when we said no thanks he just walked off and never came back to take a drinks order. We had to go up to the bar to order are drinks. He never smiled once! The satay chicken was nice. The vegetarian pasta was shocking it was supposed to have sun dried tomatoes and I found half of one on the whole dish. My partners steak was ok but it came with a tiny portion of skinny fries, it said it came with potatoes! Skinny fires have never even seen a potato they definitely were out of the freezer, it wasn’t really a meal to be honest. We both left feeling like we had been judged for not picking the overpriced gin and very disappointed with the whole evening.

I ordered the beef burger and was presented with a fried chicken patty. When I stated I ordered beef, I was told they were out of beef. My wife ordered the fresh fish filet and received a rubbery previously frozen filet. I felt bad for the waiter as he knew what we were getting into but couldn’t say. DON’T EAT HERE!

Nice and cozy place in Flic en Flac. The quality of the food was average. The quality of the food was good for the price of the dishes. The prawns grantin was excellent. But the main dishes was served cold. We had to wait roughly 30 mins to be served our main dishes with our cutlery in hands. However, the attitude of the waiters need to be improved. We did not received the same service the foreigners were receiving. We were not even asked if we enjoyed our meal after dinner. The waiter only handed us our receipt and did not even say goodbye. We also work in the hospitality industry and a good service should be given to both local and foreign customers.

Ordered our food at approx. 7:30pm and at approx. 8:25pm I asked why we hadn’t yet gotten our food that just shrugged and said there were two tables came in before us. The place was not busy and the two tables that came in before us were almost finished eating. At 8:30pm we threatened to leave and the food arrived immediately. The fish and chips were cold so we sent the meals back and said we would only pay for the drinks. There seemed to be no one in charge and no effort was made to apologise or compensate us.

We ate at the Rib and Reef twice. I had seafood curry the first time - it was nice and flavourful. My partner had a burger and fries - he said it was really good. The second time we had Ceasar’s salads and it was good. The lava pudding with a dollop of ice cream was disappointing. Even though they have small bottles of sparkling water on the menu, they only ever have large ones in stock. The waitrons are friendly and helpful.

We loved the food. The steaks were great cuts of fillet and were cooked to perfection. The sauce and fries that came with were also lovely. However the waiter was so moody and made us feel like an inconvenience whenever we asked for anything, nothing is offered here by staff without guests asking (including bringing menus, ordering drinks or food)

Dont come here if you are in a hurry. The service is glacially slow and erratic. It took nearly two hours to get to our main courses. I managed to receive a Salad Nicoise with no Tuna in - thats a first. Then after waiting for the next 90 minutes, the main courses showed up, and mine was the wrong dish - lamb curry instead of rack of lamb. I accepted it and had them change the bill. A pretty lame apology from servers, and they still charged for it. The place was also too hot inside, and pretty uninspriring, little more than a shack. So I wont be visiting again, and I strongly suggest you dont either.

Very good experience. Our waitress was very attentive. The food was very tasty, we had the ovenbaked mussle gratin, a meat curry and carbonara and everything was tasty. The cocktails are what pulls the review down one star but other than that, it was very tasty.

Popped in after the beach for a snack and ended up having another fantastic Food experience. We only ordered Crevettes au Gratin followed by a fillet steak to share .My only regret is that we didn't order a steak each ! Top quality food for reasonable prices. Eat inside though as flies a nuisance in daytime outside. The food on this island is amazing.

We came for ribs but had not noticed the name is ‘rib’ &reef not ‘ribs’ &reef, husband very disappointed but his lamb curry was good albeit small portion. I had steak which needed to have rested before serving but was otherwise very nice. Great decor and lovely he wine was good too. Prices equivalent to UK which seems to be same in most restaurants.
