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.

We always enjoy our time at The Collective. Although I was brought out the wrong starter, the staff were great, very apologetic, even allowing me to keep the starter and striking it off the final bill.
Service like that, is why I rate it so highly, recommend to others and keep coming back.

We have eaten here before & food was great, this time food was very average. Garlic bread was soggy.
Music way too loud for 6pm sitting. Killed the conversation. The only up side was we had a fantastic waiter.

Second time we’ve been back and I didn’t enjoy it as much as our first time. We were in a corner against a wall where there were 8 tables squeezed into this small space. It was not the romantic evening I was hoping for. The beef tacos were less then average. The meat had no flavour and was that wet that the tortilla wraps went soggy.

It was the best gnocchi I had for a long time. The service was amazing. Food variety could not be better . My only problem was, when the sun was out the place got very hot , even with the humidifier spraying on us. Otherwise it was excellent.

staff all very friendly and attentive.. went above and beyond standard service.. from meet and greet to all 3 wait staff that we interacted with..

can be a little pricey , especially for kids meals but they are big portions and good food.

music can be a little loud if you are seated near the live music, makes it hard to communicate.. but our overall experience was wonderful. thanks guys

We really like coming to The Collective the only downside we really experienced the night we were there was the entertainment. Not sure who auditions the acts, but she was very droll. Not interesting to listen to at all. Very monotone & too loud when you're seated around that area. Other than that, food was great, service friendly, value was good, too. We'll definitely be back.

This is an amazing venue. We were there for a specific reason as in Taste Testing of The Italian Job for my daughters wedding in May but ordinarily thus type of collective offering a variety of cuisine is such a good idea. We love it upstairs snd were there once again. Our waitress Marianna was exceptional and added another level of enjoyment to our evening by being the right level of friendly, efficiency and attentiveness. WELL DONE

Hi CateB, The Collective Palm Beach is a unique and innovative way to dine with family and friends. To experience the full variety that The Collective offers, that we have designed for and encourage a “share style” of dining. The wait times on dishes from each individual restaurant will vary, and dishes may not arrive on the tables at the same times. Sorry for any confusion, thanks, The Collective Team X

We frequent the collective as favourite restaurant. Great atmosphere, always busy. Very relaxed, casual feel. Food always delicious. Beef cheek succulent and the tastiest truffle burger. Service is great and love to sit in the garden court area or upstairs. When we have friends visit the Gold Coast, this is the place we take them first. It’s always a winner 😄

Not a great start , booked our table online 4 adults and a high chair,2 weeks before dining we arrived , BUT no table ready , no high chair . This was a 4:30 booking .
Was told we had to wait until a table was cleared and set for us ... WHY?!?!?

The Food was great , ordering was easy, once we figured out the tablets , and food arrived very quickly .

Another whinge was every single meal was dumped on the table infront of the 20 month old sitting in the high chair at the end of the table ... WHY???
A baby grabbing at hot food ? Good thinking guys .
Despite this ,
We will be back the atmosphere is amazing e concept is amazing and the food is amazing .

Tweek the faults guys . You are definitely a on a winner
