We had a nice lunch here. Nothing fancy, a chicken burger/sandwich, and a salad. They were both very good, and the wait staff was fun to talk to. Seems most of the staff in Palm Cove is from somewhere other than Australia, and they all have interesting stories. Pricing is fine for what we had and I recommend the Rising Sun for lunch. Location is great. Right on the Esplanade overlooking the coral sea.

We had been disappointed by the rather clonal menu offerings in this town. Rising Sun offered a fresh alternative with interesting daily specials. We enjoyed the perfectly cooked and presented Spanish mackerel and the Hot and Spicy Vietnamese salad. The service was cheerful and we appreciated the charm with which our request to turn down a strident musical offering was accepted. We will return!

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night and hasn't made a booking so we were concerned we wouldn't get in as they were very busy however got one of the best seats in the house. The food was amazing my hubby really wanted fish and is particular about it as only likes it fresh and was very satisfied. I had the roast chicken curry and it was beautiful! They had mock tails available which was great for me as I'm pregnant. The staff were very friendly and it was quick service. Would highly recommend.

We had a Mexican breakfast burrito from the specials board, it was huge so we shared, and it was fantastic. We have had brunch at many places and this was right up there. They should add it to the menu. Service was good to.

This place seems to get the full range of reviews, but we found it great. Simple, interesting food, service was good for us - and the location can't really be bettered.
