We were in Palm Cove for a week and ate here a few times. We found it to be the best casual lunch place on the strip. They do a great club sandwich and the stools across the front offer a great view.

We stopped here for a late lunch and enjoyed a shared plate and both had a smoothy which were very good. The only issue we had was small aggressive ants that bit us on the legs as we dined. We had t move tables but they followed us.

The Thai prawn egg roll caught my eye on the menu and my partner ordered a Spanish omelette. Coffees came but food took 30-40 minutes. Even though we weren't in a hurry and having a lazy Sunday we started feeling quite hungry. There was only one other table of 7 people. Food was excellent when it arrived. Not a cheap... More

Polite service. Had a range of tapas. Lamb skewers were great. Other dishes - fried zucchini, chips and empanjadas were fine.

Traveling with expert smoothie critics and these $9.50 smoothies were watered down, lacklustre flavourless rip offs... Asian salad was fine nothing to come back for, zucchini fritters were slices of zucchini deep fried, not what i was expecting- average- wouldn't rate it

We stayed at Palm Cove for 4 nights and ate here 3 times. Found the place by accident and couldn't stay away. Really great service and menu options. The lamb and chicken kebabs are to die for. Other tapas options are all great too. A very unassuming looking place but well worth a visit for lunch or dinner.
