We had a very yummy breakfast here. Was a little disappointed though when we went there Saturday for breakfast and they weren't open

Thank you for your great review. We are glad that you enjoyed our Apres breakfast, they are delicious and excellent value. We only made the decision last week to do breakfasts on Sundays only during the quiet season, we are sorry that you came for breakfast and found us closed. We would love to see you again on a Sunday... More

Could not resist going in as I walked by...the music...and the number of people in there compared to nearby venues. Nice...but nothing special. Did not try the food but the pizzas smelt good. Nice to sit outside...at the counter and nurse a beer on a hot day....and watch the world go by!

Once again back to one of our favourite spots. Right on the beach and a great spot for good food and drinks at a reasonable price 😉

We found the staff very attentive, even though the restaurant was quite busy over the Reef Feast weekend. As expected the prices are not the cheapest, but we enjoyed the meal and would be happy to return for brunch.

We did not eat there but had drinks there twice. It was a fun place to go to and they had music which we enjoyed.

The place we were staying offered 10% off here, so we decided to give it a try! It was very crowded, and so we were seated at the last available table which, unfortunately, was inside, rather than outside with the ocean view and breeze; it was HOT!! There was not a bit of air moving; a fan would have helped... More

Thank you for your great review, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meals. We have been very busy lately, and we certainly do appreciate all of our staff who have been working very hard. It was a shame that no outside table was available as it is lovely sitting out the front with the ocean views and... More

We booked a table for dinner and they placed a lovely bunch of flowers on the table for us as the waiter had remembered that I commented it was for our anniversary. The food was lovely as were the staff. Highly recommend trying them out and trying the Australian Plate which has crocodile,barramundi,emu and kangaroo.

I wanted to give this place a good review, I really did, I gave them a few chances to be fair. But we went here 3 times in 2 days and each time was more disappointing than the next. First time we went for lunch and started with some drinks, we waited over 30min after our drinks had been delivered... More

Thank you for your review, we are very sorry that the service was not as it should have been on your visits. It was a very busy time that weekend with Reef Feast being on and the thousands of visitors that it attracts, but as you commented the third time you visited it was not as busy. All we can... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that your coffee was cold, we hope that you let the wait staff know so that a new one could have been prepared for you.

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
