Vivo Bar and Grill - Palm Cove

Frankly we wanted to go back to NuNu the next day for lunch again but we couldn't risk enduring the same waiter. So we tried a groovy restaurant a few doors down - Vivo Bar and Grill - with a wide, inviting colonial verandah and shutters.

The fish and chips came wrapped like a bon-bon in some grease-proof paper. While the fish was fresh the batter was slightly crystallised and a bit greasy. The triple-cooked chips were easily some of the best fries I've tasted. Crisp, salty with a fluffy interior.

We also shared a blue swimmer crab with chilli, snow peas and fresh tagliatelle pasta.

Perfectly balanced flavours and squeaky fresh ingredients.

And as we looked out onto the lagoon we realised the service hit all the marks NuNu failed to... warm, attentive, unobtrusive, professional, relaxed... (need I go on?)

Another swim, a walk and a bit of footy on the telly and we slept deeply ready for our flight back home.
