Vivo Bar and Grill
Vivo Bar and Grill Review
Diners at this classy beachside eatery enjoy Coral Sea views framed by palms and melaleucas to go along with tropical cocktails and Mod-Oz-meets-Mediterranean dishes. House muesli and freshly baked breads make this a favorite breakfast spot; panini, pasta, salads, and calamari pack in the crowds at lunch. At dinner, head chef Russell Molina transforms fresh seasonal produce, especially seafood, into inventive contemporary food in Vivo's gleaming open kitchen. Try his popular crispy-skin barramundi sauteed in wild mushrooms with Mareeba bush tomatoes and Shiraz jus, then indulge in a caramelized lemon tartlet with berry compote. The 2–3 course prix-fixe menu comes with a glass of Cape Mentelle wine (A$39/A$49 per person). A chic sunken bar forms the hub of this sociable haunt; between meals, Vivo's a popular spot for city-strong coffee, tapas, and cocktails.
