It was only by accident that we stepped in this place. Didn't look nice from the outside, but we saw there were many locals sitting inside so we decided to try. Very short menu, which is a plus. The food was good, portions extraoridinarily big, it is enough to order one salad and one main for two persons. The owners... More

If you are pork chops lover this is the place, they serve only pork chops fries and Horiatiki salad. Strange crowd , in out left was sitting a TS and in front of us a minister. Open till late. For welcome they give you a chop in your hand.

Very good food, simple and quick service, cheap, kind of street food. It is a very simple environment, as it is focused on the service and quality of food. As it is close to the central meat market, has a relevant concept, for those who shop and stop by for a quick lunch before going back home.

Authentic greek taverna as the ones you can find in the little villages or on the islands. We were staying just round the corner and one night we decided to try it even though from the outside it doesn't look the nicest turned out to be the best decision! The grilled pork was delicious: soft, spicy and served with homemade... More

We’ve been to this place so many times but for some reason I’ve never written a review about it. Perhaps I was convinced that the best way to let people know about Telis is word of mouth. What does it take for a satisfied customer? It’s simple: good food! And Telis provides this in excess! It’s not a fancy place... More

I strongly believe that a good restaurant does not need to have thousand items just a few and awesome. This is the case with Telis, let us be honest no body goes there for the greek salad or the tzatziki but the RIBS, oh my god the RIBS. It has been a staple of my nutrition since i was a... More

The neighbourhood is not the best you can have in athens, but the food is nice and the people working there very friendly. As said in the title the offer is basic: no menu, you get a greek salad and a lot of pork chops grilled on charcoals and served with fried potatoes. Everything if freshly cooked and very nice....

I went to Telis for one reason and one reason only: The Pork Chops on a Bed of Fried Potatoes. The chops were flattened thin and huge, the flavor was superb and the fried potatoes excellent. I had a large bottle of beer to wash it all down. Not in the most charming of areas and visited mostly by locals... More
