From the outside, the Colony looked like a restaurant in one of those grand ole hotels every Britain-colonised cities. Even the very name.
But boy were we disappointed.
The weather was excellent the evening we were there and yes there is an outdoor terrace but it means sitting with smokers.
The Cape Malay Lamb Curry was being replaced and was not available. The waitress could not really recommend a main course. In the end, we settled for a fish and a steak. The medium-rare was essentially medium. The fish was somehow not as tasty as Jemima's, where I regretted not doing a second time.
The feeling I got was that the place is coasting on its past glory.
