“Pete Who? ”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Fish and chips are supposed to be 'the best in Palm Cove', I disagree. The fish was dry and overcooked and the chips were soaked in too much oil. If you are going to pay for the view there are plenty of other places to choose from.

“Seafood on the beach”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Quick, friendly service. Seafood lunch was tasty and good value. We shared a seafood basket $17, plenty for two people.

“Yummy burger”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We did not have self catering accommodation in Palm Cove and sometimes you just can't face another restaurant meal! Wandered down the road and found Pete's Place, ordered a couple of hamburgers and some chips from a very pleasant lady and took them back and ate them on the verandah of our room. Couple of drinks, balmy tropical air and a good feed. Very pleasant

Prices for a hamburger are a lot steeper than they are in metro Sydney but we enjoyed this fast food.

“Good feed, good prices”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Had breakfast here 1 morning & enjoyed the experience. went for bacon & egg roll & the special, good size servings, not bad tasting coffee & great view of the beach + wonderful morning breeze. service was of a good standard given only 1 on at that time, met the young 13 old who worked on a Sat morning & he is a gem (well done young fella).
its not 5 star & the prices are def not 5 star, if you want an honest decent feed you can do a hell of a lot worse than Petes. we will be back again.

“SADLY AN AVERAGE TAKEAWAY”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Friday night - Fish & Chips??? Why not. Heard good reports about Pete's takeaway at Palm Cove so gave it a try. Phoned the order through and arrived to collect. Bit of chaos in the service area, someone had received/taken another customers order which then had to be redone, No 51 may have had to wait quite a while. Got our order home (locals), front of the TV with the footy on, then Oops! The piece of fish was only just over "legal size" but tasted OK, the chips were soggy not crisp and the potato cakes were only partially cooked and still hard in the middle. Yes the shop was busy being a Friday night, but I don't see that as a reason for turning out second rate takeaway fish & chips. Will try Pete's again with fingers crossed.
