Went for a treat with friends and ended up hungry and annoyed. Ordered a burger and requested a gluten free "bun" which turned out to be toasted slices bread on top of a burnt patty. The cheese was plastic and tasteless and let's not even go into the chips. All four of them that they gave me. The waitress' English... More

Staff were brilliant and one of the only places in Palm Cove/Port Douglas that stocks Gluten free beer for us Coeliac sufferers that still crave a beer... More

I totally understand the mixed responses below. Apres has some great things going for it and the food is overall better than average, but needs to be more consistent in its service as well as certain dishes. After our first visit, I was prepared to write a scathing review due to the condescending and unprofessional service we received. We came... More

Palm Cove, one of the nicest beach areas in the world. Wonderful beachside location with heaps of tourists, prepared to pay top dollar for a nice meal. It can't get any better for a restauranteur - all they have to do is perform. But mediocre, overpriced meals with hideous service are for some reason the norm in Australian resorts. This... More

Had lunch at this place in Palm Cove last week and was not impressed. Service was lukewarm and the food was average at best. I ordered a bacon and leek gnocchi as I was told it was freshly made that morning. It was almost inedible with a bitter tasting sauce. I mentioned it to the wait staff who said she... More

We searched for a pet friendly cafe and stumbled across Jens Cafe called Beach Apres Bar and Grill. We asked Jen and her team weather or not they... More
