A little overpriced. After a long break we decided to try again - marked improvement in the service and food

“Shabbat and you don't want to cook? Colony is your answer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Our family of five enjoyed an early dinner here last shabbat (Saturday afternoon). Here in Jerusalem nearly all dining establishments are closed on Shabbat (Friday eve to Sat night) so finding a place to eat out can be a real adventure. Add to the challenge finding a place that caters to (picky eater) kids and you might find yourself never dining out on Saturday in Jerusalem. Colony comes to the rescue! Fantastic food, very generous portions, great options for young kids as well. Wonderful atmosphere, courteous & responsive servers, reasonable value all made for a really pleasurable dinner. One additional remark, do try the berry Mojito. I have beeb sampling mixed drinks throughout the world on our travels this year and have been resoundingly disappointed by Mojitos in many countries. While I can't speak for all of Israel yet, I can say the berry Mojito at Colony was downright delicious and deserving of high ranks.

“If Bono chose the place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We booked a place after recommendations of the guy from the hotel (david citadel)
and were surprise to see Bono from "u2" there (cool!)
However, lunch was great , the place was full and felt a little while crowded
but service was still good. we took the liver dish and the Salmon fish and schnitzel + french fries for the kids. the dish I like the most- chocolate and coffee mousse!

“Beautiful atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

The Colony has a warm, inviting atmosphere. We celebrated a special occasion with friends, and found that the restaurant suited the special nature of our meal. The fish was excellent and the service was attentive. Definitely worth a visit!
