Had been for a very good evening meal in the past but first time for breakfast. I purposely looked away from my regular choice of Eggs Benedict with salmon (they have that too) and chose the "Bubble and squeak... and the 3 little piglets". Wow that's what an imaginative, quality and delicious... read more

We went with the cocktail of the week and it did not disappoint. Only criticism I have is the waitress/waiter uniform could be a little more fancy for... More

I purposely celebrated my 30th birthday in Palm Cove so I could go to vivo on my birthday night. Food is so delicious. On the pricier side but worth a visit. Service was poor at night but great when we had breakfast.

Vivo is a real treat. We dined here a number a times and were never disappointed. In fact the second visit was on the strength of the Passion fruit Soufflé. We had to force ourselves through entre` and main to again meet the soufflé and round out another perfect evening. We also had a couple of breakfasts at Vivo. The... More

Amazing dinner experience, the food and cocktails were fantastic. Went back on another day and the breakfast wasn't anywhere near as good, nice coffee though! Book a seat outside to enjoy the view.

I've had the pleasure of having breakfast lunch and dinner here even early afternoon tea and beverages the food is quite divine no average standard dish. Each meal has a set standard and I'm yet to be disappointed I just don't think I will be. Try the panacotta for breakfast one time it's a great way to start the day!
