“Still a great restaurant”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We had dinner here twice on our recent visit to Palm Cove. The food was wonderful, very fresh and perfectly cooked every time. We had a variety of dishes and all were delicious. We ate here a couple of years ago and it's great to see that the standard has stayed. The service is spot on and they are very attentive to your needs. It's always buzzing. A very enjoyable experience and the setting is great.

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went there for dinner. We shared the Pork Belly and dumpling entree which was yum! I had the Crab Linguini and hubby had Angus Beef Steak. Both were lovely...the steak was a little overpriced but the service and atmosphere made up for it.

“Great meal and service...”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We were passing by and decided to stop for lunch.

Glad we did as the service and food was great. Also, its very kid friendly are most restaurants in Palm Cove. We had the Pork Belly Salad (good) and Calamari Salad (excellent).

We haven't been for b'fast or dinner, however have heard great things about both sittings.

While we haven't sampled a great deal of the menu, given the restaurant was almost full at lunchtime, its reputation must be deserved.

Worth a look...

“A winner, yet again”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Having dined here many times during our last visit to Palm Cove, it is great to experience the same friendly and efficient service and the fantastic cuisine on offer at this restaurant. The word seems to have got out as it was very busy, so would recommend that you book ahead if you can. Can't wait for our next visit.

“The best in Palm Cove!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed at Melaleuca in Palm Cove for a week, right on the beach front and the main restaurant strip. Two blocks away we found Vivo Bar and Grill and we had lunch there 5 days out of 7!! Wonderful views of palm trees & the rolling surf, fantastic staff and just the best food, home made pasta, seafood - all delicious and reasonably priced!!
