I stayed at the hotel and although I journeyed out, I ate here every night. I am fairly fussy about food and theirs was always excellent. I am mostly vegetarian but the waiter made the beef stifado sound so good I had to try it....More

Stayed at Telesilla Hotel. The pool is nice and clean. All changes in the late evening . Entertainment excellent. So is the food served and the Staff very friendly. Worth a visit.

The bar is fine. It's the geriatric British discount vacationers that make this place hilariously awesome. I mean, they were doing their best to party hard so much respect there. Don't make a trip for it but if you're staying near there check it out...More

Lovely poolside setting and friendly efficient staff. Good traditional Greek food with nightly specials and entertainment 3 times a week. The food is delicious and the puddings are fabulous. The prices are a bit higher than other nearby tavernas but the setting is lovely.

Very friendly and helpfup staff. The lacal food was excellent and a visit to the kitchen showed hard working staff in an immaculate environment. Visit on a Thursday evening and enjoy the Elvis night lots of people do.

Excellent food, well presented by friendly and helpfull staff. Pleasant surroundings and regular music nights. Looking for a quieter experience, visit on a non music night.

Excellent in all respects - food, homemade red wine, service and entertainment, all top notch. Probably the best lamb we have had in Greece (and we've had a lot)! Cannot fault it.

Surrounded in a court yard with a hotel wall/balconies at one side, a swimming pool + fountain in the middle, didn’t see anyone in the pool. Friendly staff, a bit too much of the waiter one-liners for my liking but this banter approach will suit...More

Starters are approx. 5 euros,main meal anything from 8 to 15 euros and dessert 4/5 euros.The main meal is very substantial so you might not need both starter and dessert!

An alternative thing is to walk into Gouvia Marina as they have a pool for anyone to use and sun beds are 2 euros each. There is a bar on site and also a supermarket 1 minute away that also sell cold drinks. You can also... More

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.
