Telly's never disappoints. There is a wide selection of appetizers (try the fried vegetables or saganaki), soups, salads, and entrees. Want to share a whole fish? Just tell the waiter what kind of fish you want and how many will be sharing. You will be served a perfectly prepared grilled fish of just the right size. And when it comes to dessert, try the yogurt with preserved cherries. It is simple and scrumptious. Valet parking is a huge benefit! More
