We are huge seafood fans to the point that we could happily eat fish everyday which makes it sound like we would be really easy to please as long as you wave something with fins in front of us. This is not the case. I am sure everyone in the world would agree there is nothing worse than over cooked fish. We did not have to worry about that at the Reef. Both my Crispy Skinned Snapper and David’s Almaco entree were perfectly prepared with delicious accompaniments (in David’s case, his fish came with Chinese Long Beans which was our first opportunity to try out and we are now crazy about them). The baked oyster appetizer I ordered was tasty but not as spectacular as David’s Tuna Bacon Turadito which we fought over. Our only complaint would be the service — our meals were unceremoniously placed in front of us without explanation, and the timing was very rushed so that you still had your last bite of your appetizer in your mouth when the second course arrived.
