We were staying close by and looked forward to dinner at Apres before leaving. We were there early, so no problem with getting a table - we sat inside as the wind was picking up and a little cool. The staff were very friendly, chatty and helpful. My husband and I ate from the 2 course set menu and we... More

My partner and I stopped in here for a late lunch while visiting Palm Cove. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Although the food was nice, I don't think it was of a quality to charge such excessive prices on a lunch menu (total bill for two was approx $65). Apart from this, the atmosphere and... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner a few nights ago for a family catch up. The menu looked good and there was a reasonable choice of meals on offer. The food itself was reasonable to pretty good so can't complain about this. Unfortunately the service was terrible. Had to ask twice to order drinks and even after reminders we never... More

Just got back to our resort after dining here, and we were somewhat disappointed. We wanted a great meal to celebrate our last night in cairns and thought Palm Cove would offer that. Only 3 of us dining (10 year old son, wife and myself), and we asked if they had a table free. They had one out front which... More

Not a good start, no coffee, no mint for a mojito... then we waited 40 minutes for "kiddies servings" black angus burgers which I swear must have been frozen patties. It would've been bearable if we hadn't have paid top end prices for bottom end fare. Too bad because the service was polite and the location excellent. I've read several... More

Thank you for your review, we are sorry that your Apres experience was not up to your expectations at this time. Our Black Angus beef burgers are one of the most popular dishes on the lunch menu. We can assure you these patties are made from 100% certified Australian Angus beef. We do however apologise that at the time of... More

Thank you for your great review, we really appreciate it. Our Trivia night is really fun and the best part of it is that the $2.50 entry cost gets donated to the Palm Cove Ronald McDonald Retreat which we like to support as a local charity.

We visited this bar on our first day. What a disappointment. The food was awful. The service was appalling. Certainly wouldn't recommend it.

This bar & café was full of people propping up the bar or eating in the café section. Good testament to the fine food which came out of the kitchen, which was absolutely delicious & very reasonably priced. In particular, the pizzas had a ton of topping on them & a lovely thin crispy crust.

Thank you for the wonderful review. Our new Bistro and Pizzeria area is very popular due to the high quality value meals that we offer. "Spindles" our Pizza Chef is well known locally for his excellent pizzas and on his day off we have an Italian pizza chef who knows his food. We hope to see you again soon More

Wound up here after driving into Palm Cove trying to find a carpark and we were delighted with our choice. Tried a main and dessert, both of which were great. Service, position and atmosphere were perfect for a mid afternoon lunch

Description
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
