Situated approximately in the middle of the main street, the buildings have a colonial feel and big balcony surrounding the main bar area. We had breakfast here twice in the 4 days and it was delicious...try the panacotta with fruit...superb!! Best coffee in our stay and good service. Definitely worth the trip!

If you don't eat at Vivo you are mad! The food is divine - try the salt and pepper calamari (I finally got good calamari in FNQ) and DO go there for breakfast. I can't rate Vivo highly enough. From the staff to the coffee to the food. Do yourself a favour and go for every meal you can!

We have dined three times at Vivo in the past week whilst holidaying in Palm Cove. Twice for breakfast and once for dinner. Our breakfast and dinner earlier this week were very good although a touch expensive. However our breakfast this morning was very disappointing. The restaurant was reasonably busy and staff and management clearly weren't coping. We ordered the... More

We dinned here 6 years ago and found the food amazing. We had the chance to dine there again last week and still the same result. Awesome food, service. Palm Cove at it's best once again.

Vivo's quickly became our favourite eating place in Palm Cove during our two week stay. Suzy and her husband run a very friendly and efficient place for breakfast, lunch dinner and cocktail hour from three pm to six. The staff are friendly and attentive yet not intrusive. We had the "stimulus" dinner three times which was amazing each time. Customers... More

Been in Palm Cove 4 days now and have had breakfast and dinner here, both were excellent. Set menu for dinner, wontons, prawn pasta and white choc moose was excellent. Hot cakes with a side of bacon were seriously good, don't be afraid to ask for more maple syrup. Staff were great both times and the setting was relaxing and... More

We had lunch here several times in a row and each day it was amazing - both the presentation and taste of the food was some of the best we've had in Queensland so far. Staff are attentive and friendly and the location of the restaurant across from the beach is great. Highly recommended!

Vivo's quickly became our go-to place in Palm Cove. We chalked up a couple of breakfasts, three consecutive cocktail hours and some tapas. Their breakfast vietnamese-style crepe rivalled some breakfast efforts served up in Melbourne's cafes, with very decent coffee, and fantastic cocktails every afternoon at happy hour from 3-6! Highly recommend this place in Palm Cove!

Spent a lovely week in the beautiful Palm Cove - my favourite holiday destination in Australia. Vivo has been an icon of the area over many years and only gets better and better. From the interesting menu to the postcard like location and massive staff team - even the most discerning will be happy dining here. Not to be missed.
