When you lose your wallet, all your coins are gone too. Although your bitcoin assets are still in the blockchain, they cannot be accessed as there is no way for anyone to find the private key. So a lost wallet means dormant bitcoins.

if your wallet can't be restored or you have not kept your back up files in cold storage you have lost all your bitcoins!

well I'm not sure but I read somewhere that if hardware wallet/device is stolen or you receive a reset loss the company provides you the restoration facility. I guess it was Pi wallet, may be.

If you remember your private key and files are saved somewhere safely, you can restore your wallet!

When you lose your bitcoin wallet, your coins are lost as well. Unless, you know your backup pin and are able to retrieve your coins using that pin.
