While on a recent holiday in Palm Cove my wife and I dined at Vivos a few times for Breakfast and Dinner we found the service was very good and friendly and the menu had a good variety to choose from . We found this restaurant to be a very enjoyable experience thanks very much we will be back .

You can eat for dinner but we chose to have tapas and cocktails (up till 5.30pm only) overlooking the water. Choice of tapas and cocktails. great pre-dinner eatery.

Happy hour really is happy! Bar staff are more than happy to make something off the menu too :-) tapas style food pairs nicely with your drink for a fun afternoon overlooking the beach.

What a fantastic experience we enjoyed dining at Vivo. We stayed a week in Palm Cove and dined here on several occasions and were never disappointed. The breakfast was great, lunch hurt my waistline and dinner was superb. The food and coffee was delightful - fresh and presented with a tropical flavour: The extensive wine list enhanced the flavours of... More

Always a solid option and lovely service - we've been back here a few times over an 8 year period and feel like old friends each time - great spot!

This is the only place to eat. We've been coming here since 2012 and it's consistently extremely good. Vivo is right on the beach in a beautiful setting and housed in a gorgeous building. The staff appear to be mostly international guests to Australia though, unlike other restaurants in Palm Cove, they seem well trained and extremely efficient. I really... More

We hired a babysitter and went here the other night for a holiday date night. Was soooo excited for a night out with my man, I researched all the restaurants in Palm Cove and Vivo seemed to be right up there. So I had big expectations and lots of excitement based on reviews. The good (and there was ample goodness)... More

Had breakfast at Vivo this morning and was very impressed with service & quality of the food. I had Eggs Benedict with bacon & avocado while others at the table had the Salmon version. The meals & coffees were excellent along with the outlook through the Palm trees lining the beach. Great way to start the day .
