Great concept where everyone benefits

Palm Beach on the Gold Coast has truly come of age and has fabulous dining experiences. Opened at the end of December 2016 is the multi cuisine The Collective. We rocked up on the first day of 2017 ready for lunch. There were lots of people milling around and waiting to try out the latest eating house.

Menu

The menu covers several of the ‘food outlets’ and it’s all delivered to the table for a small service fee of $3. There are five different options covered on the menu –  including Modern dining, Asian, Pizza and Mexican. Really loved the fish taco!

Cheers and get on down to The collective if you live or visit the Gold Coast, it’s great.

Beer anyone?

We really enjoyed the dining experience and would definitely head back for more. It is a good mixture of spaces and dining options. There is a kids friendly play area zone too.

Visited: 1 January 2017

Cost: $77 for four adults sharing food

Verdict: We’ll be going back soon

Groovy Palm Beach for a taste of pavlova

It’s “P” cake time!

P Cake from Providore and visit to Palm Beach.  We are getting through the alphabet and we are already up to the letter P.

We set out in search of some pavlova or something with pistachio. We went to Providore at Ferry Road market. We selected our cakes which turned out to be really lovely.

Blown away by the P cake fun

We had a fun day but our experience buying the cakes made us reflect on the importance of customer service. We were highly disappointed with the service at Providore when we were trying to buy our cakes, which is so unlike the other Providore stores that we often frequent. For some reason the service person just didn’t want o serve us and seemed very impatient with customers. What a difference a good service person can make to your day!  Next time we will go somewhere else and hope for more pleasant interactions.
