Me and 2 friends spent 4 days in Palm Cove while traveling in Australia and we ate in this restaurant 3 out of the 4 days. The one day we decided to try something new, we regretted it! The staff at Apres is wonderful and their food is even better!! Their burgers are top-notch. Pizza is spectacular. Panko breaded oysters... More

Went there since they had Moreton bay Bugs au gratin on the menu, I love the bugs and the description seemed ok poached and topped with parmesan, cheddar cheese, breadcrumbs, béchamel sauce, served with crusty bread, salad and rice. On arrival I got a table, was asked if I wanted a drink so I said a glass of white wine... More

A Cairns local, this has been a place I have dined at during lunch with my family. This particular evening I was with friends and we were disappointed. The only tables available were inside which were not air conditioned, luckily a table become available outside which was cooler on a steamy night. The food arrived quite quickly however the chips...

Thank you for your review - we are so very sorry to hear that your visit was as you described disappointing. Saturday nights are very busy here at Apres and the front deck is very popular, people sometimes book a week in advance. However we are pleased to see that our staff were able to move you when a table... More

Wanted decent pub grub and drinks and this isn't it. During peak can expect food and service standards to suffer but at off-peak with six tables and a dozen staff aimlessly walking I cannot understand why this place was so markedly average. Rating would've been two based on this but with the pricing of this "service" it's a one. If... More

Hi Ratu It appears that this is your very first Trip Advisor Review. We assume that this is a genuine review and that you do not work for the opposition. However you may have been confused and visited another restaurant as we do not employ a dozen wait staff, in fact in the last 2 weeks we have only had... More

Wonderful 'local' bar and restaurant. Good menu, great staff. Live music and beachfront location makes it the perfect place to unwind. Clean and well furnished, though it doesn't have the boutique feel of some of the adjacent venues, which makes it much more welcoming. Kids were relaxed and had plenty to choose from. Reasonably limited wine list, but selection very... More

Apres Beach Bar & Grill is celebrating an amazing revamp with an exciting new menu created by two new chefs, a new Pizza Bar and new outdoor furniture. The kid's playground across the road allows you to have a drink or meal while the kids are entertained in the playground. Come and try us out with a complete new food and new drink menu. We have strengthened our supervisory team with the appointment of a supervising chef.March 6 2015 we opened Apres Pizzeria in the rear section of the Apres Bar. Apres Beach Bar & Grill is open 7 days a week all year round. At Apres, we don't want you to just eat, we want you to have a dining experience that you will remember! Dine on the outdoor deck, with stunning views overlooking Palm Cove beach, one of the world's best beaches. There is nothing quite like the sound of waves lapping the shore while palms sway gently in the breeze to add ambience to a meal. Perhaps you'd just like to enjoy a drink, a bar snack or a tapaz platter - the choice is yours, we have something for everyone. Or simply come in for a quick coffee and pastry. While you soak up the atmosphere check out the fascinating memorabilia that is part of our decor. Our friendly and inviting atmosphere has earned us the reputation of being one of Palm Cove's premier meeting places, for both locals and visitors alike. The phrase "Let's meet at Apres" is part of the local language here. While overlooking the beautiful Palm Cove beach, you can meet for a meal, mingle over a drink or just soak up the buzz that defines the Apres Style. Apres has live music every night and organizes many events throughout the year, ranging from Happy Fridays, Darts, Trivia Nights, 60-70-80's music, hospitality/locals nights, happy Pizza hours and Rock & Roll. We are open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. OUR SUNDAY BREAKFAST is almost relaxed enough to wear your pyjamas! APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL, GOOD TIMES ON TAP GREAT FOOD, GREAT FUN, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT ATMOSPHERE. We are excited! Things are now really cooking here at APRES BEACH BAR & GRILL
