A group of us had lunch here during our stay in Palm Cove. The food was great and the waitress really friendly and helpful. We chose a selection of dishes and all were tasty, well presented and freshly cooked. Highly recommended!

Stopped by on our way to Port Douglas from Cairns, nice relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyed drinking my iced coffee while sampling their tapes, before continuing on.

Popped in to grab a quick take-away coffee and had to throw it away. Had I had time to go back and complain I would have. I did not eat here so I can't comment on the food at all. In terms of the deco there is much much nicer places to go.

This is our second time visiting and it always seems to impress. The service was excellent and quick and the food was fresh and tasty. My Husband and I ordered from the Tapas menu and the kids ordered from the lunch. There is something on the menu for everyone. The view was amazing, couldn't be better. This place just doesn't...

10$ for a smoothie please add some fresh fruit and show some interest in the things you are doing. I will come again to try the food out because that menu looks interested enough! Anyway you deserve a 2nd chance food wise, not smoothie wise!

Situated directly opposite the beach this is a gem of a place. A good selection of tapas are offered and they were delicious. Chilled water is provided as soon as you sit at a table and you are not made to feel that you need to order anything else to drink with your meal. Would we go again next time... More

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.
