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

Apres turned it on tonight. A great cocktail menu, ample choice of entrees, mains and desserts. I had the Huon steak which was cooked the way i like it and it came with veggies that were cooked just right also. However in saying that, the sweet potato with vanilla didn't do it for me at all... read more

Probably my favourite place. Had a nice drink here the first night. The staff are lovely, the female manager is great, attentive and you can tell she really makes the place what it is. Came back the 2nd night for karoke, and it was fabulous! met some great locals and had a jiggy on the dance floor.

We were lucky to spend 5 nights in Palm Cove recently and ate out each evening. We enjoyed the meals and the excellent service at Apres Beach Bar & Grill so much that we had dinner there 2 of the 5 nights. Bonnie, our waitress gave us excellent service and the casual atmosphere was great. Highly recommend it.

Having walked from the South end of the Esplanade this was the first place we reached where the menu appealed. It was fairly busy (Friday night) but the service was good. We all ordered the Grilled Chicken stuffed with feta but 2 of the 3 were slightly undercooked around the bone. The breast fillet was cooked well and tasty however... More

God service, nice atmosphere with live music. The food looked great and was tasty.You can find both fish and meat dishes. My son gave the pasta carbonara 5 stars because of the creaminess. The price was reasonably.
