The Collective is the Gold Coasts newest dining paradise. Situated on the Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach, The Collective is an innovative way to dine with family and friends that is sure to please even the fussiest of eaters. Open 7 days a week, The Collective features five individually owned restaurants and two bars including a rooftop bar and dining experience. Transforming the old Palm Beach post office, this new venue will exceed all your expectations with seating for over 300 people in an open outdoor dining setting that the Southern Gold Coast has been craving.

We are embracing exciting new technology changes in the hospitality industry. Our digital menus allow you to send orders directly to the bar and the kitchen so that you can place orders as soon as you are ready. We still provide full table service, and our team are here to help, but we encourage you to embrace this new way of ordering and experience the benefits in speed of service.

Ordering from an iPad and having a menu was very confusing. We were given the wrong drinks twice and the food was over priced for such small servings. Also cocktails were expensive and super average...

I’d recommend this place to anyone, I’ve been here a few times now and can honestly say it never fails to impress.

The food is always outstanding and goes above and beyond expectations. The atmosphere is always on point too, can have a nice flowing conversation without it being noisy and general ambiance of the place is another level.

I do have to say, kahu, if he isn’t a manager already he definitely should be !! That guy is an absolute gem and a asset to the business, nothing but kindness and went out his way for us (me and my gf) to have a great evening.

Keep up the phenominal work guys and much appreciated! Till next time 😘

Drinks service was great. Ordered and within 5 minutes it was there.
Food not so great. Pork belly nuggets were luke warm and the maple sauce was only 1/4 full. Gnocchi lamb was too dry. Not like the quality we had last time- sorry!

Over priced and very average food
Spent $60 & felt hungry when i left. Ordered as a group of 7 and the meals did not come at the same time. There was barely any service. Surly waitress. Even saw them CARRY A WHEELCHAIR up very steep stairs. Shame on you !! You should be taken to anti discrimination board. That us totally dangerous and humiliating for the lady in the wheelchair. Will never go back

My friends received their Mexican food before everyone else and the rest of the Italian food took another 30/40 mins. By the time the food came it was 10 mins before we were supposed to leave.

Great for celebrating with a big group and freedom for each person to eat what they want and spend as much as they want. Ordering was made efficient with the tablet menu device and this made split payments easy as well. :)

We are locals & visit the Collective fortnightly. The menu is so varied it allows you to never have to choose the same thing twice. Food is excellent & the recent intro of live music is really good.

Another lovely meal at the collective. This time we had a much quieter table up the back which made talking between 7 people possible. Love the different choices offered for food. Makes everyone happy including the fussy ones !
