“Best restaurant meal ever!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We arrived at the Colony on Sabbath without a reservation and found the place full to overflowing. The hostess and the manager graciously made space for us and we had the best meal ever. The mozzarella stuffed chicken breasts were to die for. And the desserts - what can I say? We loved it so much we made a point of making a reservation for our last night in Jerusalem. A perfect ending to a perfect visit.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Great food and great staff! We loved this place! As big foodies from NYC, we know good food! Staff was great from the second we walked in the door by seating us earlier than our reservation. Accommodating with our young children and great waiter! Don't miss out!

“Nice Mediterranean Bistro”
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”
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
