“Keep the cocktails coming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

My partner and I enjoyed a lazy afternoon at Vivo Bar and Grill. We opted for the tapas menu and snacked on olives, breads with dips and barramundi curry spring rolls - very delicious.

We were very impressed with our tapas, the service and the stunning view and chose to relax for a couple of hours at our prime table. We both enjoyed a number of drinks during happy hour including mojitos, espresso martinis and the recommended coconut mojito which was a very sweet drink.

Would have gone back each day if we were staying in Palm Cove longer.

“Keep coming back every year.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We have been coming to Palm Cove for over six years and when we do Vivo is the only place we have coffee. Love the people and atmosphere. The best in Palm Cove. We also Di brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and happy hour. We stay at Angsana (now Alamanda) and go to Vivo, that is our holiday.

“Vivo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Service poor, waiter forgot to enter our order so we sat with a 6yr trying to entertain him for 45mins until garlic bread arrived. The place wasn't that busy but staff seem tired & fed up.

“Great food, casual, fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice while staying for a week in Palm Cove as we loved the fun and friendly atmosphere. Food is great and is served quickly, it was packed every day even outside of school holiday season. We loved the pasta and the dessert menu was also very good.

“Great food,service and affordable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

We eat lunch here every other week, have great specials,service is friendly and efficient.
Our faves are: tiger prawn bruschetta, baby piccolo fritto, fish and chips, the lunch special plus the veal schnitzel...we think the meals are generous in size and tasty; Dinner; is generally the fish for me, it often has a modern Asian take on it which I love,a glass of Cape Mentelle at $8 or $13 for 250 ml and for my other half the spicy calamari salad (he loves his calamari)and a couple Asahi Black Super Dry beers..easy to eat in restaurant whatever time of day...
