We had dinner in this restaurant one night and it didn't disappoint. This restaurant can really present their dishes well. In fact it was some of the best designed plating I've seen in a while. It is well worth checking this restaurant out!

I had the steak that was flavoursome and so tender, you could cut it with a spoon. The chef puts a lot of care into presentation. The service was not terrible, but it wasn't special either. Would I go back again? Yes I will

Ate at Colonies on the cove based on reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Good service and great meals consisting of Thai Fish Cakes for entree and Barramundi with Morton Bay Bug and Garlic and Lime Prawn for mains. Barramundi was beautiful and moist and the best presented meal we have had. The prawns and bug were very tasty and it came on a bed of mashed potato. Carrots were made into butterflies for garnish. Very skillful and clever. We opted for desert and had a tiramusu and apple sponge. Both were very nice. We would certainly not only recommend this restaurant but will eat there again whilst on holidays here in Palm Cove.

Great food, beautifully presented, great service, great location, and not overpriced. I especially enjoyed the "Mexican BBQ corn". We enjoyed 11 nights in Palm Cove and chose to eat at Colonies three times during our stay

Dined here twice in 10 days. Exceptional food, service and atmosphere. Owner is delightful and knocks up the best baked cheesecake I have ever had. Best restaurant in Palm Cove. Make sure you book as it's popular . Great drinks menu also.
