Description: Dear There have been a few changes here at APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL since November 20 and we thought, we should share this with you. It has been a difficult six months for Jen Malone, Clary and myself following our takeover of Apres after travelling the world for the past few years. We have now moved on and we have put the past behind us. Jen, Clary and I are all looking towards a bright future. We have strengthened our supervisory team with the recent appointment of Irene Schleifer to take over management responsibilities for the restaurant. With a degree in hospitality, Irene has gained a good deal of her experience in food and beverage during her employment in Disneyworld, Florida. Another key position has been filled through the appointment of a supervising chef. Steven Ellis was appointed to this position on 1 November,2014. Steven joins us with an excellent background and experience gained in several top hotels and restaurants in Australia and Korea. More recently, he was employed by the Shangri La Hotel at the Cairns Marina. Long overdue, we have put together with input from Steven and Irene, a brand new menu. This menu will be greeted with enthusiasm and offers a wide selection of dishes and quality second to none. We are excited! Things are now really cooking here at APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL, so we look forward to seeing you back

Our first night out as a family for dinner. We weren't too sure which restaurant would cater to the needs of our family of four so we thought we'd try APRÈS BEACH BAR & GRILL & we were thoroughly happy with our choice. The service was excellent although the night was very busy lots of people, the restaurant was pretty... More

We called here on a quick trip to Palm Cove whilst staying in Cairns. There was a good choice of food and the staff were very friendly. Recommended.

With visiting Palm Cove for our first time we found ourselves going and returning to Apres Beach Bar and Grill numerous times- sometimes 2 times a day. Reasonably priced drinks- with a cocktail on for Happy Hour! The tappas were outstanding- we nearly tried the whole menu by the end of our stay- with a range of items from the... More

We had dinner here twice during our stay in Palm Cove a week ago. The food was absolutely beautiful, one being rump steak and the other Grilled Barramundi. Deserts wow! The meal was so good that we ordered the same on our next visit and it was equally as impressive. Our compliments to the chefs. The flavours, quality and presentation... More

Fantastic location and attentive staff are the only good points I can come up with about Apres Beach Bar & Grill. The food was less than average, bland and boring, and for $90 extremely overpriced for what we had. Dull, Dull, Dull

We are however sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal in the restaurant. Our team of chefs source local produce and aim to serve up the highest standard... More

We visited Après again on our recent visit as had been a few times several years ago. Unfortunate we did not get the great food and service others have commented on. If you enjoy Bircher museli, do not order here. It is a make it yourself selection of predominantly nuts. Coffee also average. Lunch was a little better but definitely... More

My wife, mother & I ate & drank here a few times over Xmas / New Years 2014. Xmas lunch was the stand out performance, fully booked but still great service and great food matched by fantastic beach views. If we find ourselves in Palm Cove again would not hesitate to return here.
