Very disappointed to walk there and find the restaurant was closed for good. Our rental house had all the information promoting it but alas after our walk there we had to find somewhere else to eat. The pizzaria near it is fine

We were keen to try this restaurant, but it closed last week, sadly. We understand from the shop owner across the way that it was due to a family dispute. The signage is not even there any longer. What a shame.

We had 13 nights in Palm Cove and ended up dining at Colonies 3 times. The wait staff were friendly, the prices were reasonable (for Palm Cove), the food was delicious and the presentation was excellent.

We were told by a local that this was the best restaurant in town. They were quite accurate. The proprietor is lovely, enthused and the food is delicious.

Had a wonderful dinner at Colonies. Food was superb on both the regular and kids menu, fast friendly service, and beauty of presentation is not something you often see.

Luckily we got a walk-in table for two before the Saturday night rush started @ 7pm. Glad we did and glad we didn't fixate on trip advisor ratings as Colonies is better than those restaurants currently placed higher that we have visited. We were given...More
