American Colony's famous restaurant, The Courtyard, is situated at the very heart of the hotel's ancient building, connecting all of the building's wings to one magical courtyard. This is one of the most popular restaurants in Jerusalem.

The Courtyard - Ottoman Elegance in Jerusalem

Infinite number of public figures and celebrities throughout the years have enjoyed this magical dining experience.  Sit in the shadow of strawberry trees and listen to the sound of relaxing water coming from the central fountain. This is the right place to relax and enjoy an intimate and picturesque ambience, an authentic Jerusalem-style design, and attentive and professional service that will make you feel like Ottoman aristocrats.

Fresh Summer Menu

The Courtyard serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is open during the summer days and in accordance to the weather. If you're coming for breakfast, you might want to indulge in the hotel's famous breakfast. Popular and highly recommended! If you're planning on lunch, the restaurant offers a refreshing summer menu throughout the day and great deals on their business lunches, served between 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm. As the night falls, the menu changes to a Mediterranean fine-dining cuisine with twists and combinations from all around the globe. You will find lamb kebab with sour yogurt on burnt aubergine alongside fillet mignon accompanied by sautéed asparagus and mushrooms. In addition, the restaurant serves delicious sea-food directly from the Mediterranean sea and original vegetarian dishes.

Private Events at The Courtyard

The restaurant's intimate character alongside its picture-perfect design and the historic significance of the hotel are the right combination and the perfect atmosphere for celebrating private events. The restaurant is open for buyouts for private milestone celebrations, such as weddings, bar-mitzvah events, and bris ceremonies. In addition, the venue can be reserved for business events like book release parties, product launches, wine tastings, conferences and more. The restaurant accommodates small-scale events of up to 60 guests.
