A good value for money casual dining option with lots of good menu choices, espcially for families. I had the curry of the day - delicious! My partner had the fillet of beef which looked terrific and he said was cooked perfectly.

We were here Monday 28 nov. We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed the great ambiance, except for one obnoxious diner who rudely complained about his meal after he'd devoured it all, rattling on externally badly to the waiter something about his pizza having no chicken. Obviously he'd eaten all the evidence. Some people just set about getting a free... More

Unfortunately for these guys we went to Apres as our fist stop over when we got to palm cove. The young guy behind the bar was helpful and chatty. He did unfortunately make a terrible cocktail. The rest of the staff were walking around looking unhappy to be there and we couldn't get out of there quick enough to find... More

My chicken satay pizza took some time to come, but that was ok as it made the anticipation more poignant. At last my meal had arrived but there was one problem the chicken satay pizza had no chicken. I approached the Maitre 'd, who reacted as if it was a joke. I certainly did not get "I am terribly sorry... More

A lovely local pub with restaurant attached and an excellent place for a pint after the beach. The local pale ale was very refreshing and the bar staff very helpful with making mocktails for my pregnant wife. Whilst we did not eat at the restaurant it seemed as though the food was of a good quality pub standard at least.... More

After deciding to stay in Palm Cove for a week, the next decision to make was where to find a good seafood platter. We tried Neptures the night before and paid $175 for one. Then we discovered Apres did one also, this was priced at $120. This is the best $120 we have ever spent on dinner. Nothing fried, nothing... More

Popped in at beer o'clock for a cold one. Certainly got that and some wedges. It was windy and cold, sea was rough but can't blame the pub for that. Locals very friendly and chatty.

We had dinner there one night when there was live music. We had steak and barramundi and both meals were delicious. This restaurant/bar overlooks the beach and has a nice ambience. We enjoyed it. However, the staff could do with a little more training and they need to fix the outdoor fans.

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
