“Great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

While in Palm Cove we went to the Casmar Restaurant and Bar. We were warmly welcomed by the owner. We had a Tapa of meat and bread among the 3 of us with our pre-dinner drinks
Two of us had the Veal Oscar and the other person had the Spicy reef fish wrapped in prosciutto, We all found our meals delicious. The chef came out to see if everything was fine and chatted with us.
We followed this with crepe suzettee. We asked for ice cream to go with it as it was not on the menu. The chef thought also that we may like to have chantilly cream with it. Although the crepe suzette did not have the strong alcohol flavour as sometimes it has the orange flavour and the cream and ice cream went superbly with it. This was all for not extra cost.

“Friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Our last night in Palm Cove walked in off the street. Theme confusing and decor needs attention but the balcony was nice. Friendly new owner and staff. The seafood platter for two was wonderful and good value. ($100) Service was good

“Fantastic food,great service, beautiful views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

I visited palm cove recently and went for dinner twice at casmar. The first time I had the lamb rack, which was divine and very reasonably priced for the size of the meal. The service and atmosphere were fantastic and relaxed. Which is why I went back and tried the veal!
The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Congratulations to the new owner "Mon" and thank you to all the staff.

“VERY AVERAGE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Thought I would give the new owners a go.. But to be honest I won't be hurrying back.
Firstly the tables were very close together and when seated it was very squishy. My friend had to get out of her seat for the table next to us to be seated. I'm not sure where they are going with the menu but the meals were very small and bland, my prawns were over cooked. It definitely isn't the same without the sisters. Does anyone know if they have a new restaurant?

“New owners. Same old.Same old.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Have been going to Casmar for many years, through about four or five different managements. This new one is a bit different - reduced menu for one. But the problem is still the same - not enough customers. This leads firstly to a lack of ambience and secondly to economising on the food (quality) and bumping up the drink prices. It's a catch 22. The location is still great, as always. The service was excellant. The food was OK. The prices were reasonable, but XXXX GOLD at $6.50 is a bit rich. We appreciate the 10% locals discount but that's not the only reason we will be back to try it again. The place needs a lot of local custom, particularly larger groups, which could be easily catered for. Vive Le Casmar !
