Description: In the evenings, the poolside area turns into an outdoor restaurant and a cocktail bar, which stay open from 18:00 until late. Both of them are extremely popular attracting tourists as well as locals from different parts of the island. The restaurant offers a variety of Corfiot and other Greek favourites together with international dishes and is well known for the exceptional quality of its homemade food & wine as well as its attractive prices. Telesilla nights are memorable not only for the welcoming atmosphere and the fine food, but also for their great fun and entertainment. We host live performances, free for all our guests and visitors, and music is at the heart of these events. We have live shows put on at least 3 times each week, with acts ranging from joyous and exuberant traditional Greek songs and dances (Saturday nights) to Elvis style rock ‘n’ roll (on Thursdays), and from easy listening & jazzy melodies to highly energetic dance grooves (Tuesday’s show). All the action takes place in our cosy pool area from 21:00 to 23:00, approximately. Yet, after this, the party is not over. The music keeps playing and the cocktail bar is there, ready to take you to the moon! Our barman has even attended seminars on cocktail recipes and preparation methods to ensure that he can offer our guests some of the best flavours and tastes Each and every day, Spiros and Makis Filippas will go to the local market to select fresh, pure and healthy meat, fruit, vegetables and all the other ingredients needed so that our chefs can come up with an abundance of culinary delights. We never opt for ready made products of any kind or settle for goods of low quality. We see the restaurant as an extension of our home and our guests as valued members of our extended family, the Telesilla family. Our chefs and kitchen staff prepare and cook all dishes in exactly the same way as they do at home for their close relatives. For the same reason, our portions enjoy a reputation of being both generous and good value. We also produce our own wine and, every year, any guest who wishes to participate is welcome to do so! At the poolside area, we organise a jolly “wine making fiesta”, a convivial event with much celebration! We take great pride and satisfaction in the happiness of our guests. Their smiling faces and feelings of contentment are Telessila’s principal aims and the basis on which we measure our success.

“Again, wonderful”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

The Telesilla family, after a brief 2 year sojourn, its a long way from New Zealand, shared with me yet again their beautiful food and impeccable, humourous service. THIS IS THE PLACE TO EAT. The lamb was amazing and the stifado the best in Corfu. The meals were delicious and plentiful - and don't get me started on Tomaz' mojitos! You cant go wrong with this place and if you hit it on Thursday check out Elvis - a true highlight. Yanni and Mike are as brilliant as usual and Alex is a great addition.

“party atmosphere”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This is a great place to eat or just pop in for a drink. Staff make you feel very welcome and there is a real party atmosphere not the place for a quiet drink!

“Good home cooked food, clean kitchen and entertaining service with a smile!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Thank You again to the Family and Staff at the hotel Telesilla for ensuring the last two weeks were fun and entertaining with the ever popular Elvis tribute evening
No matter what your food tastes are you will find something good to choose from and you can also be spontaneous to see what fresh fish are brought in etc.
If you are on your own at the hotel you will find friends and made welcome. Children are also made welcome. The waiters and barman are a good team and service is definitely with a smile!!!
