Colonial: Delectable dishes in the green oasis of Glyfada’s Golf Club
In Athens, green spaces are hard to come by, but at Colonial, verdant gardens and wooded areas proliferate the landscape.

Watch from the restaurant’s wooden patio as couples meander aimlessly through clean-cut grass or as children saunter energetically about the nearby playground. Colonial, where earthly aromas mingle with salty ocean air, is a perfect place to sit, relax, and enjoy a delectable meal.
Colonial’s menu is the product of a collaboration between award-winning chef Giannis Baxevanis and chef Nikos Mara and features Mediterranean flavors and an array of locally sourced ingredients. Enjoy sandwiches on housemade bread or cheesy scrambled eggs made with fresh tomatoes and Greek feta at brunch. For a more upscale lunch or dinner, sample a variety of locally made cheeses as an appetizer, and let the grilled sea bream topped with a glistening chili oil and saffron sauce take its place as the star of your meal.

To end on something sweet, feast on a heavenly piece of crispy baklava or a refreshing plate of seasonal fruits. And, of course, take advantage of Colonial’s extensive wine list by pairing your meal with a glass (or two) of wine or lush cocktails.
Pro tip: Colonial is a great restaurant for families to dine, as it offers both a playground for small children and the option to order a half portion of any dish on the menu.
