After a stroll along the Palm Cove esplanade to look at restaurants and menu's many of which looked lovely, Vivo Bar & Grill impressed with it's lovely ambience and we walked in without a booking and asked for a table. The welcome was warm and friendly and the experience only got better and better. After a wonderful dinner we returned... More

We have been going here for many years as partly locals to the Northern Beaches of Cairns. It has a wrap-around veranda looking over the sea with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff whom are mostly from other countries are wonderful and remember us, however, I have to say, that in all the time we have been going here, we have... More

This was the third palm Cove restaurant we ate at and was just as good as the other two. The service was friendly, helpful and informative. The food was excellent. Beautifully presented and a great range of options. Portion sizes were reasonable (not too big), and the taste was excellent. The spanner crab entree and duck main were the highlights.... More

Well deserved good reputation. We were a large table but were served smoothly and the waiter was informative and helpful. So good we went back the next night as we could fit dessert in the first time. We agreed that dessert was easily as good as the dinner.

This place is outstandingly brilliant! The duck is just one amongst many delicious menus. If you like to eat with style, this has to be your choice! Price is reasonably fair for such high quality food and the palm tree sea view is not from this world! One of the best high class restaurants in and around Cairns.

Menu has lots of delicious options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is always fresh. Staff are friendly. The view is beautiful. Great cocktail menu too! Not a negative thing to say about Vivo!

We dropped in to explore Palm Cove on the back of friends recommendations. Well worth it. Vivo has excellent food, good staff and a great verandah overlooking the ocean. Highly recommend the BBQ king prawns and the calamari.

Loved this popular restaurant. I think Palm Cove's masterchefs work here. Great food, interesting dishes, changing menus, great coffee, nice tapas, fun cocktails, the friendliest and most helpful staff and a fabulous atmosphere. What else could you want? Stayed in Palm Cove for just over a week and ate here often, as it is definitely the best restaurant in Palm... More
