Telis is a typical old school restaurant in Athens. It is in a downgraded district of Athens without any view. The plates with little but plenty pork steaks are excellent. The prices are very low. The menu is simple pork steaks, a salat feta cheese and simple drinks, that's all. The negative is that there isn't any decoration. It has... More

They serve mainly one main dish, which is a plate with 4 tender, delicious pork steaks on top of hand made french fries. I have been going there for years now and quality is always the same! I also order Greek salad everytime and it comes loaded! Beers are well frozen and the owner is giving a free dish of... More

It reminds me the buffalo ribs back home! If they had BBQ sauce that would be perfect! I hope to visit that place again!

Nothing nice about this place position wise but i love it! Food is cheap, basic and tasty. Don't forget to order tirokafteri. It's fantastic! you will probably have the chance to meet local figures and observe local everyday down town athens life while eating. Telis is great!!

Asked hotel reception to suggest a place for lunch. They suggested Telis, so off we went to find the place. The location of the shop is not good, with a lot of dodgy looking people hanging around in the street. We ordered the "speciality" , lamb chops and chips. The food is good but what spoilt the whole experience, was... More

The best and cheapest Greek restaurant in Athens city if you are after loads of meat for your lunch and dinner. Tip 1: The direction to this restaurant is not easy but if you drew your map carefully before you head out of your hotel, i am very sure you will find it. Take note that the huge signboard in...

Telis is a humble family restaurant which is all to easy to pass by. But if you're hungry and fancy heaps of freshly grilled pork chops and french fries, do yourself a favour and stop here. You won't regret. The owners are very friendly, very Greek, very lovable.

Ok. food's very good (there is only meat -nothing else), but their service and attitude is awfull! Typical of somebody who is sure of making profits and don't give a damn about satisfying its customers. Been there once, never again!

BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU EXPLORE! Out exploring this evening looking for a highly recommended restaurant named Telis Psyrri Grill (3 stars in Frommer’s Athens Day By Day guide), in the Psiri district. Did my usual meticulous planning and had the route all mapped out. Next thing you know I was walking down a dark narrow street, trash piled on the... More
