Probably eaten here once a month for the past year and always good Very attractive location and great relaxing atmosphere Only doesn't get five star because the staff are a bit gruff sometimes as they are at most places in this part of the world.

Great service, friendly staff, extensive menu and wine list. Good idea to book for breakfast , lunch or dinner, choose a verandah table with a view of the water, and a spot of people watching. We had the fish special which was perfect and desserts of caramelised fig cake with date paste and custard ,very yummy.

We only got the chance to eat here once during our stay at Palm Cove, but loved the food, staff and ambience of this fine place. Being a vegetarian with very limited food choices on the most menus, we found Vivo and their staff very responsive to providing some vegetarian options for us. The food was interesting, beatifully presented and... More

We dined in 3 times in 3 days with friends and family because the food, staff service, wine list and sea view was unmatched. We love fine wines and your list was eye popping, clearly the owners know their wine, we were spoiled for choice. Terrific lunch, dinner and tapas options and my 5yo son loved it here. Wish you...

Always great coffee and great service. I'm a local and there is nothing better than starting the weekend here or grabbing a mid week morning coffee. Always bring visiting friends and family here.

We had lat afternoon tapas and drinks, and also dinner on a number of evenings during our stay in Palm Cove and couldn't fault the experience. The food was delicious and well-priced, and the drinks very reasonable for this little part of paradise, directly opposite the beach. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the service was always quick... More
