My girlfriend and I wandered past right on dinner time and were easily accommodated which was very nice. The wait staff were very professional (our tap water wasn't chilled so we were brought a glass of ice and some tongs with it!) and we felt well looked after. We chose the two course special which was really delicious and very... More

Fantasic! Staff were super friendly and so professional. The menu was great. We went around 11am for an early lunch and got the breakfast menu but we didnt mind. My partner had the eggs benedict and I had the bubble n squeak. Food was so good. Asked for an orange juice. It was freshly squeezed. And its dog friendly. Cant... More

During our 8 days in Palm Cove we had several coffees, 2 lunches and 2 dinners at Vivo. Vivo is ideally located across from the beach on the Esplanade. It can get windy (between 4-6pm) but Vivo is well organised with verandahs on 3 sides and heavy-duty plastic which can be rolled down to cut the wind. Seating is outside,... More

Friends recommended this place and so we gave it a try for lunch. Probably should have booked as they were really popular but still found us a table in spite of being so busy. Service was a little slow but we were not in a rush and it was a fabulous day. Sunshine, blue sea, people swimming and everyone was... More

My second time dining at Vivo and it did not disappoint. Our party opted for the set price menu: 3 courses with a glass of wine. Excellent value. Every dish that came out was very good. I chose a lamb shank as my main and whilst it was fall-off-the-bone tender, some sauce might have been nice. Interesting to see that... More

Vivo came highly recommended to us. There were a few people talking about it around the pool at our resort! We decided to go there and were not disappointed. The set-up is lovely - with balcony seating to enjoy the views of the ocean across the road. The food was good - local seafood featured prominently on the menu, including... More

Lurve this place for brekkie. Food is consistently good! I know that cause I always get the same to dishes, eggs Benny and croque madam. Yummo. The ONLY time the service falters is when it's crazy busy. But if you've got time and with friends then you don't really notice. Visit at least once a month and can't bring myself... More

We stayed at Palm Cove for a week and we kept coming back to Vivo! The staff were friendly and the coffee was always good. We had dinners and breakfasts and the variety on offer was great. It's was always busy and the atmosphere I think was the best in town.
