Over a week period I spent an hour or so on 5 mornings just sitting in the comfy lounge in the open window at the Rising Sun looking out at the ocean, palms and passing parade. It was sooo relaxing and a perfect place in which to unwind, while drinking great coffee and eating tasty and healthy breakfasts or just savoury snacks. The service was very good and the staff were all friendly and attentive. Next time I return to Palm Cove I'll be heading straight back to the Rising Sun!

Having visited Palm Cove on many occasions, I never knew this place even existed so I'm glad I found it on my last trip.
Even though I had been travelling all day (I could have looked smarter) the friendly guy outside was more than happy to point me in the direction of the bar for a quiet glass of wine.
The decor here is interesting, the bar reminds me of European (old English) pub\bars but the dining area reminds me of a Spanish/Greek garden with the marble tables and wicker chairs. Nice lighting, chilled music and a nice table to enjoy an unwinding glass of wine. Couldn't ask for much more.

My waitress was only too happy to oblige, offer me water, menu etc etc and the wine was there in a flash. This place also has fast free WIFI (bonus).
I noticed there were drink specials, ranging in beers and cocktails - and not just a couple, I counted several on the board. Dragon fruit caiprioska to pale ales....

Whilst I didn't dine here, the food looked nice when leaving the kitchen and for a Wednesday, this place was pretty busy which can only mean good things :)

All in all I'd say this is a lush place and would recommend anyone looking for a quiet wine, or maybe a family dinner - it seems to suit all.

I don't normally write reviews, however have been compelled to after two stella meals at this restaurant and a little more time on my hands than usual being on holidays.

I had on two separate occasions the breakfast baked eggs and the lunch chicken wrap, both unbelievably tasty and served with great customer service.

Thanks for a great experience The Rising Sun, YUM!!
