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

Pizza perfect

Good food - great pizzas! Had sticky date pudding on 2 different occasions - first night's was perfect with lots of sauce - second time around there was barely any sauce on and what sauce there was, was so watery that it turned me off completely and I didn't even eat it. Maybe just a bad night... read more

Awesome location and always worth a visit. Friendly staff and great beach atmosphere. Cocktails are more expensive than classier places in Port Douglas or Cairns and lack a generous kick of sprits and the presentation is not great. They recently introduced pizza which are tasty with fantastic crispy bases but they are overpriced for the size and toppings. Still a... More

We had a lovely lunch here whilst on holidays. I recommend the brushietta - yum! Meals were well priced and a generous serve. The Creme Brûlée was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive. Great spot.

Cheesy Garlic bread not on the menu but they... More

Happy atmosphere, good food and great position. The decor of the place is unique and adds a homely feel to the place. There are so many things to look at inside - make sure you take time to look at the decor!

Went to Apres for dinner over Easter & service was excellent. Special mention to Bonnie who was great. Like other review by the time you added public holiday surcharge it became an expensive night out for a family. Food was very good & generous size. Would definitely recommend.

After traveling approx 800km to Palm Cove, we took our position at a beachfront table that we had reserved a few hours before, while en route. There was a great ocean breeze and a great view of the lunar eclipse as we ate. The only thing I would mention was that the food was quiet pricey - after adding the... More

They were very busy and tried to organize a table for us indoor. Food was great but price was very reasonable, compared with the other local fancy restaurant. service was caring and friendly. We were happy overall.

We were only in Palm cove for one night. We walked down the street from peppers and stopped in for one drink. The staff were so friendly we decided to stay. The entrees were awesome- oysters Kilpatrick and the garlic prawns. We didn't need the mains but they were great too. We watched menu couples walk past then come back!... More

Had a great Saturday night here. The Rib on the bone was a great cut of meat cooked to perfection. The wait staff were very friendly and quick service. Ended up staying for a few hours as the staff kept us in drinks and the live music was real easy listening. 10 out of 10 Apres, highly recommend.
