I have been eating at the Colony for along time, with Friends and family. I recommend it often to others. the feedback is always good. The food is fresh, suits many, if you are a carnivore or vegetarian. Nice selection of alcohol,. Good atmosphere. Live music from time to time.Walking distance from major hotels and parking. Open on Saturday.Not Kosher.

We arrived around 5 pm, after booking a table for 15 people a week before. We were seated at first on the first floor balcony. The air condition was not working( only fan). It was unbearable and after 10 minutes another table was offered to us in the main room. The air condition did not work also here, the two doors to the restaurant were open, and it seems that the staff tried to cool the place with outside air. Not really a success.
The food was average, nothing special, too much oil, and not enough seasoning. Don't order the caspacio soup. The fish was pail, tasteless. The hamburger was good and tasty.
In general, I will not arrive any more with a large group.

Location is a tad tricky, though parking is easy. Food is very good, fusion fare. Home made hamburger is amazing, as are their french fries. Order the pate of the day - can range from garlic to liver to courgettes - special to say the least. The winner is their home made wine - they do it from start to finish and its truly top class and refreshing. Other pluses are the beef carpacia and stuffed mushroom starter. Enjoy!

this restaurant is part of a wider food chain comprising all types of foods. the colony has very professional staff a well balanced menu and a wide range of bar items, and they know how to make really great cocktails. i have been eating at the colony since 2010 and have seen a few of the dishes spiral during a change of chef, but overall the food is clean tasting, imaginative, and best of all non kosher. i commend the staff who are well trained and seem to actually enjoy their jobs, a trait not often found in jerusalem eateries. the outdoor bar and eating deck is just too delightful on a summers evening, - all in all a pleasant eating experience and worth many visits.
