Beautiful dinner and atmosphere on the deck catching an evening breeze on a hot north Qld summers night. Was awesome. The food was excellent - especially loved the Salt and Pepper BBQ Prawns and together with a couple of Campari's I was well and truly relaxed. Service was excellent to boot. Went twice in a week. Keep up the cullinary... More

Dinner on the verandah out front felt pretty special and the food will not disappoint as well. Entrée's where so good we have 5 instead of mains. Soft shell crab, stuffed Zuccini Flowers, BBQ prawns, Scallops .......you... More

It is not very often to find a restaurant that serves both delicious fresh breakfast and gourmet dinner, but this place does. If you also count that it is directly on the beach it becomes the best place to eat in Palm Cove.

Caterers to all. Fiance and I came in for afternoon cocktails and tapas. We ended up staying all afternoon and having dinner. Perfect spot, perfect food, perfect drinks. Staff attentive and friendly offered insect repellent and a phone charger when we enquired. Perfect evening thank you vivo bar and grill.

We stopped by Palm Cove to look back at our honeymoon destination and made an impromptu visit to Vivo on Sunday. Such a change to the area made all the more better by Vivo. Started with cocktails which were fantastic, followed by a couple of entrees (prawns and cheese platter). Hubby cooks well & he loved the food, cocktails and... More

You can tell there is pride of ownership here when Momma Vivo comes to settle the bill and takes the time to care how your... More

With so many restaurants to choose from in Palm Cove, Vivo in my opinion is a must. Whether for breakfast, lunch, diner or just a coffee and cake, high quality food along with superb customer service makes Vivo well worth visiting. ** Make a reservation if going for diner as it does get quite busy**
