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.

It did nt look my type of place, so pleased I got off my high horse and went in. The food is superb, the waiters are some of the best I have encountered, so knowledgeable about their food, very professional but very friendly as well. The cocktails are very, very good and only 6 euros. The restaurant puts on 3 nights of entertainment Greek Dancing which I went to... Elvis which being a snob I didn't ...wish I had now...and a disco night which we missed. I would of done all 3 it's that good.

“Impressive service and food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We dined here one of the two nights we stayed at the hotel and had a delightful evening, celebrating a 70th birthday. We were thoroughly cosseted, with most attentive service and superb food. My "Paleokastritsa" steak was beautifully presented and very tasty. All good value. We much enjoyed the 60s/70s musical evening and the dancing!

“If ever a restaurant deserved recognition of their excellent standards”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

If ever a restaurant deserved recognition of their excellent standards and achievements then the Telesilla restaurant would fall into this category. Since finding the Telesilla restaurant five years ago I have been taking friends, guests and clients to this hotel restaurant and it consistently offers great food great service and a fantastic welcome.
