THE place to taste greek meat in Athens!

If you are afraid walking around Omonoia and Athinas districts in Athens, do not go there. The location is not the best for this restaurant, nor the atmosphere BUT the food is so so so delicious that it is worth trying!!! The portions are huge, like towers made of meat! The service is very good and... read more

According to some reviewers, Telis has the best pork chops in Athens. Really? The pork chops were average and a little tough. The Greek salad had very too little feta, no salt and generally very little flavour. We happened to stumble across a smaller place in Athinas street yesterday and that beats this place hands down. The chips, as some... More

Its been 6 years since I gave a 5star rating to this classic Athenian joint and I it deserves a proper review, if only for its consistency in quantity and quality, even during the "greek depression". The menu is pretty simple, pork chops, fries, greek salad and the house special charcoal grilled tomato,feta and peppers hot sauce... that's it. No... More

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!
