We host some friends from Tel-Aviv and booked a table for 4, got the sofas till our table will be ready with white wine on the house. from that momant we felt these people care .the place is beautiful and the music nice. all dishes were big and pleasured. there was one we had to switch and they did it so nicly- that 5 points is necessary. for atmosphere and and for people who know to treat costumers....

“Great taste, something for everyone”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

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.

“Friday 6 pm, no air condition, hot, and the food is not really something.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

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.
