We had lunch and dinner at this resraurant and the food and service were excellent and reasonable priced. For lunch my husband and I shared a generous sized grazing platter that included cured meats, olives, prawns, three dips, pickled vegetables and grilled sourdough bread. For dinner I had the coconut roasted pork ribs and my husband had the grilled barramundi. The ribs were succulent and very flavoursome and the barramundi cooked perfectly, it was served with frys and salad. Will definitely eat there again.

It is with great disappiontment that I have to submit a negative report pertaining to what was once a great restaurant. Having dined at Rising Sun for some years myself and a friend went to the restaurant for dinner. The waitperson was both unfriendly and aggressive. When having to ask for a drink...in an empty restaurant...we were referred to as having an attitude. The downhill spiral just continued until we walked out. While the waitpersons performance was totally unacceptable blame must lay with management who would allow such a performance to be seen as acceptable. Just so disappointing to witness a restaurant which enjoyed a fine reputation slide into the depths of totally unacceptable standards.... Really hate to say it but give the place a miss. There are so many more places in Palm Cove which actually value your custom.

My husband and I had lunch here while on holiday.

Although the service is perhaps a little slow by city standards, it fits with the classy but relaxed vibe of the cafe.

The food we ate was fantastic - I had a Super Food Salad that exceeded all expectations.

The staff are friendly but not intrusive and the location is superb - right across from the beach and some stunning views.

I’d come back for sure.

Recently went for dinner with my daughter. I had the pork ribs, which was delicious, and my daughter ordered the nachos. Serves were very generous. The waitress was pleasant, though under the pump. Overall a pleasant evening, would recommend.
