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.

Great spot to have dinner just wish you didn’t have a two hour time limit on your table. We booked a table and once there got told we had two hours to do dinner and drinks as they had already re booked the table. Apparently this is for all tables...

Music over loud speaker way too loud, had to shout to have a conversation. Too expensive for older patrons. Would like to have had a Seniors rate. Definately for the younger generation. Don't think I would go again.

Great night for my twin daughters birthday. Easy to cater for the adults and three kids because of the wide selection of food available. Service was great also.We will be back.

very good food and atmosphere, only 2 problems were, when you order from different restaurants they come out at different times which was a bit annoying when my partner and I wanted to enjoy our food together instead he enjoyed all of his because i even got my meal :(( and the stuff were too friendly and talkative while we were trying to enjoy our meals.

We were celebrating a birthday and had 15 at the table. Excellent variety of work, wonderful service staff, the ipad's make ordering easy and you can put your name to your order which makes it easy if splitting the bill. As it was a birthday, my son got either a $10 drink or free dessert. We took in our own cake, and they stored it in the fridge and provided plates and forks. Staff came out to sing as the cake arrived. Drinks were a little $$, but we had a great night and would definitely come back again.

For the food we received it was not worth the price. Some of our food came out cold and was taken back to the kitchen and then some of us didn’t get our meals till after everyone else was finished. When asking the staff questions they were quite sour and their actions towards you seemed as though they were not very interested in helping. For a group who spent almost $500 your expect all your meals to come out at the same time and be hot still. Was not a pleasant experience for us

My overall experience was fine 'but' I cant recommend the meal I had from Umami.

If your going to call a meal 'Beef Rendang' than make 'Beef Rendang'. I took this up with the cook before paying and he gave me a forced smile and said his food is fusion, I'd say its 'co-fusion'.

I will return again but will not be ordering from from Umami .

It was my first time to eat at the Collective. The greeting was friendly and helpful. Table service was attentive without being intrusive. The meal quality was good but a little over priced. I would go again.
