After approx 6 years going regularly to Vivo, today was the last. Its been notably going down hill slowly for the last year but we keep on giving it another go. Today was the last time we will bother as its finally hit the bottom for us. Waited one and a half hours for our breakfast which then became lunch.... More

As a local family, we love this restaurant. We frequent for breakfast and lunch and never disappoints. Great friendly staff, always attentive to our children as well, and great coffee. The best in Palm Cove by a mile.

We went to a different restaurant every night - except for Vivo, as it was the best we also spent our last night there. Entrees best I have ever had anywhere and mains also exceptional. We had set menu first time, great value for money, branched out second time so a little more expensive but worth it.

I like Vivo for always creating new things for specials. The fish was great, drinks can take a bit long to come from time to time but the meals were amazing. Coffee is average. But definitely has the best location and view!

We were in Palm Cove for less than 24 hours and visited Vivo 3 times! First for a delicious much needed iced coffee on arrival. Secondly for dinner which was great. My pork belly was accompanied by a fresh asian salad - yummy. My husbands seafood pasta was also delicious . Our waiter was outstanding and was there whenever needed.... More

We had been to Vivo on prior visits, but it seemed this trip that they had gone to another level. We had breakfast there (Vietnamese Omelette YUM) the first day and went back for Dinner that night and the service was really great also.

I have been to Vivo's so many times over the years. The food quality is consistent (I especially love the daily fish specials), and the service is consistently good. No need for us to go anywhere else in Palm Cove. And this is the same for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Our food and drinks were lovely although the watermelon salad could have been a larger serve for the price. But over all it is a great place to dine or have a drink and take in the view.

Thank Angela S
