Good food, friendly service

Service was very friendly, quick and attentive. Food was good, and interesting but we preferred Lime and Pepper for the meal choices.

We first tried this place foe breakfast and loved it so much we went back for lunch a few days later. Great coffee and innovative menu make this a delicious stop any time. Couple that with the view of the tropical cove and this is a treat not to be missed.

We dined here on the last night of our anniversary weekend in Palm Cove, so went all out with 3 courses and cocktails. Each dish was delicious, some of the best food we have eaten. We sat outside on the verandah, such a beautiful outlook over the water. Great dining experience.

Went here for my 40th Birthday dinner after having read all the other reviews. Decided on the "weekly set menu" because it was exceptionally good value and looked fantastic. We were not disappointed!! Service was efficient, attentive, but not intrusive. Food was delicious, beautifully presented and the arcing portions were generous! Perhaps almost too generous, as we were unable to... More

We've eaten at Vivo about twenty times, at high and low season. One word-Excellence. The cool atmosphere and the rotating art on the walls make this place desirable to return to everytime we stay in Palm Cove. All dishes are outstanding and the staff with various european accents very friendly. Do not forget to try a Mojito!

Vivo is consistent. The food is excellent,service is full of enthusiasm and the location and view to die for. Don't miss happy hour for inexpensive cocktails and try the barramundi on the happy hour menu.Enjoy

We had a wonderful meal here and were really pleasantly surprised. We had three courses and all the food was outstanding. One of our party is gluten and dairy free and the chef accommodated this graciously. 10/10 and great value.
