Situated opposite the beach, this family run restaurant is first class. The staff headed by brother and sister Ana and Roberto are warm and friendly and over the years have become our friends. When my husband was alive they would go out of their way to help for which I cannot thank them enough.

We've been going to Palmanova for 10 years. We always visit The Beehive (Le Colmena) several times while we're there.

Having walked past here at least 4 times a day and it was really busy we decided to give it a try and neither of us were disappointed. We both had a pizza, plenty of topping on and nice crispy thin bases too. Staff were friendly and helpful and nothing any trouble.

Was a bit disappointed with our waiter this year he didn't seem as pleasant as the ones we've had previous but once we got to know him... More

The classic Hamburgers with chips here are the best in Palmanova, always very cheap and freshly cooked as well!! Colmena salad is large but very nice. A small warning though Pizzas, lasagna and spaghetti bolognese are very average and we also once had a meal that was still frozen served, one of the more expensive pork dishes. The staff were...

Was a good experience here, they were great with the children and the food was really good. Only disappointment is most of the desserts are frozen, we went for the chocolate cake which wasn't frozen and it was delicious.
