“Great food, pity about the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I went here with my partner and had a fantastic meal! But- the service and the atmosphere didn't match the price tag. When we arrived the (only) two waitstaff behind the bar looked up at us and looked really confused that there we were there for dinner, I don't think they would have acknowledged us if we hadnt said first that we hadn't said that we had a reservation. Tables were small, plastic chairs and at the end of the night we had to ask 3 different waitstaff to get our bill before it arrived at our table.

Having said that the food was excellent- had the pork belly and spring rolls for entre, the banana lead barra (amazing), seafood eggnet (less so) for mains. Overall though I feel that when you go out you pay for the experience as much as the food so while the food was great the service meant this place was a bit of a let down. As a local I think I'll leave this to the tourists and stick to my favourites.

“Nice, simple & quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We dined on a very quiet night, so only a few patrons made up the nights ambience. Staff were very attentive and informative on menu items. The food was wonderfully presented and the menu had some exotic sounding flavours. My Papay Salad was fresh, tasty and simple...perfect! Desert was an amazing black sticky rice with coconut cream ...yum! Cocktails were a little light in potency but easy to drink. Great restaurant.

“Worthy of its # 1 rating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

After checking out the reviews of eatery options in Palm Cove, we decided to try out the Beach Almond restaurant early in our visit in July ... and we are so pleased we did!!! Fantastic service, with a fresh and contemporary menu meant we immediately made another reservation for later in the week to avoid the possibility of disappointment. After enjoying a broad range of meal experiences, from the sort that make you feel that your next stop on your itinerary may be the emergency room in the local hospital, to the type that just beg you to return again and again, the Beach Almond definitely ranks high on the "begs you to return again and again" list. Not to be missed when visiting the Cairns/Palm Cove region!
