“Awesome breaky, lunch and happy hour!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

We are locals and we visit Vivo every few weeks or so. We usually will go for breaky and order the amazing eggs Benedict with bacon and avocado but recently I've been ordering the tasty specials that Russell creates!! The coffee is fantastic too! Fish and chips on the lunch menu is our favourite but the calamari is a close second! Happy hour tapas and cocktails is also really great, and as for the location, well you can't beat it! Service is always great plus you can take you dog!! Overall: great and consistent food, beautiful location and awesome staff!

“Good food”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Had lunch here and was extremely satisfied with the food. My partner had fish steamed in a banana leaf and I had a calamari salad - both dishes were tasty and plentiful. It was a nice place to sit and chill out away from the heat of the afternoon. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient.

“Perfect setting, great service”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a well run business. Good quality food and lovely wines. However, Palm Cove has so many lovely eateries we only went once during our six days. Lovely setting for late afternoon drink.

“Great staff”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I eat here a lot and have coffee every Saturday morning. Great beach veiws through the palm trees of Palm Cove beach. The staff are very nice and treat you more like friends then customers. The meals are good value and the open air tables add to the experience

“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We visited Vivo twice during our week in Palm Cove and just loved everything about it. The food was delicious. The first time we visited we all had the two course and a glass of wine deal and everyone in our party of 5 thoroughly enjoyed everything they had. We were so impressed with the wine that we ordered another bottle! On our return several days later we ordered from the menu and this was excellent too!
The staff were friendly and very helpful and in both cases sat us outside where we had a lovely outlook.
Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
