With a beautiful sunset view beach side we enjoyed dinner here last night. Food was very nice. The service was excellent - very attentive. The highlight was definitely dessert.. make sure you leave some room to fit some in! Will definitely be back.

Beautiful setting looking onto the beach and a menu with good variety. It's usually busy but staff are attentive and the Eggs Benni is great

Breakfast at Vivo - very happily adjusted the breakfast special to vegetarian for me; absolutely amazing, presentation, taste, imagination - excellent. I finished with an espresso, which was also perfect. My daughter partook of the breakfast panacotta, her favourite. Dining at Vivo is a must for locals who enjoy quality food in a beautiful environment - visitors are fortunate to... More

The vietenemese pancake is fantastic. Fresh juices and hot coffee are not to be missed at Vivo's on the beach at Palm Cove. A wonderful dining experience at any time of the day. Dary & Carole

Every time I visit Palm Cove - Vivo is my favourite place for coffee, lunch and evening dining ....but a must have is the lunchtime fish and chips - barramundi fingers with potato wedges ....always a knockout !! The evening dinner menu is creative and superb !!

We dropped in here for a casual brunch and were blown away by how good the breakfast was. There were some really interesting and very tasty options on top of the normal options.

From the outside the restuarant presents as clean and crisp with an air of "upmarket" about itself. Once inside the theme continues along with a warm welcome from the team. One thing to note, Vivo is popular!!...well worth booking ahead either online or as ou amble by during the day. Menu choice is very good with perhaps a Mediterranean slant.... More
