“Nice Mediterranean Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This fine restaurant, built in a former old train whearhous is divided into sections that offer something for everyone: spacious area for diners, long bar , romantic sitting areas and home atmosphere. On the gallery a large private room for 20 diners with an option for screening and lectures. Wine Room open and transparent confectionery space facing the restaurant, pastry shop every evening you can watch Chef - Pastry Chef prepares the finest desserts in the restaurant.

Summer terrace and a bar open summer allow to enjoy fresh breeze of Jerusalem.
The bar serves cocktails reminiscent of faraway places ....

Bistro-style menu - variations of Mediterranean favorite local dishes, salads, fish, pastas and grilled meats. Seasonal special menu with a variety of soups, stews and more, a very wide range of wines and a large selection of the best boutique wineries in Israel.

“very good food, lovely service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We spent a fun evening at Colony. The food was very good- the appetizers were especially tasty and generously portioned, the main courses (we had grilled fish, duck, mixed grill and steak) were well prepared with imaginative side dishes.The staff were very friendly, knowledgable and attentive and helped to ensure we had a very pleasant experience. The wine list was quite extensive and diverse and fairly priced and the desserts were excellent-some well prepared standards and some more original dishes that worked very well. Would definitely go back

“Best restaurant in Jerusalem but still not major league”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

During a familly week-end in Jerusalem, we went to this very nice place.
IT's opened on Satursday
The service is nice, definitely not for children, the food is nice (and less) the price high.
Inspite the fact that in Jerusalem there is no better place, the Colony cannot challenge the major league restaurants.

“Good choice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Colony was our choice on Friday night based upon recommendation of our tour guide, it was also in walking distance from our hotel, we just showed there without making reservation - wrong idea on Sabbath - place was packed, we had to wait
