This thread is bringing back good memories, I used to live at Manitoba and 15th about 7 years ago and loved hanging out a both the Reef and the Locus (and many of the other small places on Main and Cambie like the Keno Cafe). Great area! The food at the Locus was good as I recall and very healthy. I am impressed by the rum selection at the Reef.

I personally have enjoyed the food at The Reef. I've had the Ackee and Saltfish and found it to be quite good. Unfortunately I have nothing to compare it to so my opinion may not mean much. Several others I have taken to The Reef did not enjoy it as much as I did, and common review sites like have mixed reviews for it as well.

Looking at their rum menu it actually seems quite poor. Everything on the list is available in local liquor stores, and none of them are too expensive to buy a bottle and try (<$30/bottle).

That said, their dinner menu looks fantastic. I'm itching to try out their paella as I haven't found a decent one in Vancouver yet (already tried Century Lounge and La Bodega).

The way our system is set up in BC, every Liquor selection is potentially available at local Liquor Stores>>stores and restaurant have to get their booze from the same source. Me saying they don't have the worst selection meant that it wasn't 8 kinds of Bacardi and a Lemonhart.
