Chose to visit Vivo during our stay in Palm Cove as it was highly rated on Lonely Planet. The rating was fully justified - excellent food & service, and we had the choice of 2 or 3 course set menus for either A$39 or A$49. Budget prices but not budget level food - good quality & really enjoyable.

Dropped in for an unbooked lunch. Great location, prompt seating. Unfortunately lost the drinks order. The food was punctual and very good. After asking after the drinks a couple of times, they eventually turned up 1/2 way through the meal.

We dined here on the last night of our week long stay which was lucky for the other places we dined at because I doubt whether we would have gone anywhere else if we had come here first! Presentation was faultless, the service was very good despite every table being full and the flavours of each dish were exceptional.

This restaurant is fantastic. Great service, Great food. Make sure you book or you will not get a seat. We have been here for 3 days and it is busy day and night. Pretty expensive but worth it.

We attended for a quiet lunch, and were seated at the front of the balcony overlooking the Coral Sea. Gorgeous views, attentive staff, and outstanding fare. I recommend the soft shell crab salad.

Really enjoyed the 3 course dinner at Vivo. Food was wonderful , service excellent. Had a table on the centre front verandah listening to the gentle waves. Have dined here on both visits to Palm Cove and will go again on our next visit.

This is a really classy place, situated on the esplanade. Excellently attentive service, great choice on the menu (we were there for breakfast). I chose the French toast which was delicious, light, beautifully presented. Highly recommended.
