Apres Beach Bar & Grill is celebrating an amazing revamp with an exciting new menu created by two new chefs, a new Pizza Bar and new outdoor furniture. The kid's playground across the road allows you to have a drink or meal while the kids are entertained in the playground. Come and try us out with a complete new food and new drink menu. We have strengthened our supervisory team with the appointment of a supervising chef.March 6 2015 we opened Apres Pizzeria in the rear section of the Apres Bar. Apres Beach Bar & Grill is open 7 days a week all year round. At Apres, we don't want you to just eat, we want you to have a dining experience that you will remember! Dine on the outdoor deck, with stunning views overlooking Palm Cove beach, one of the world's best beaches. There is nothing quite like the sound of waves lapping the shore while palms sway gently in the breeze to add ambience to a meal. Perhaps you'd just like to enjoy a drink, a bar snack or a tapaz platter - the choice is yours, we have something for everyone. Or simply come in for a quick coffee and pastry. While you soak up the atmosphere check out the fascinating memorabilia that is part of our decor. Our friendly and inviting atmosphere has earned us the reputation of being one of Palm Cove's premier meeting places, for both locals and visitors alike. The phrase "Let's meet at Apres" is part of the local language here. While overlooking the beautiful Palm Cove beach, you can meet for a meal, mingle over a drink or just soak up the buzz that defines the Apres Style. Apres has live music every night and organizes many events throughout the year, ranging from Happy Fridays, Darts, Trivia Nights, 60-70-80's music, hospitality/locals nights, happy Pizza hours and Rock & Roll. We are open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. OUR SUNDAY BREAKFAST is almost relaxed enough to wear your pyjamas! APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL, GOOD TIMES ON TAP GREAT FOOD, GREAT FUN, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT ATMOSPHERE. We are excited! Things are now really cooking here at APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL

Good food and a great location

Food was very tasty. We had Cheesy Basil Pesto Bread for entree, fantastic, then Linguini Marinara and Pollo Al Fresco for mains. The topping for the crumbed chicken breast was excellent as was the seafood marinara in the Linguini.

Picked this on the first night as we were tired and just wanted to eat. Mistake, should have insisted we go for a couple of the other restaurants that I had read good reviews for. Smallest garlic bread entrée for the $$ I have ever seen. We then each ordered a steak. They were both tough to very tough. "Potato... More

Was not impressed with the quality or service. I found that our server was very unprofessional when handling a food issue. Food was also rather bland and slightly pricey.

Had a breakfast & a dinner here but found the prices for both pretty high for a casual type restaurant. The staff were very friendly & we enjoyed the live entertainment during dinner.

My husband had wanted to have a night out at this place for ages as he liked the fact that, from your seat in what essentially looks like a traditional English pub, you can look out to the palm trees and the sea. I guess for him it combined a bit of nostalgia for England with great views that certainly... More
