Must try: Taramosalata, Tzatziki & House Bread

Telly’s Taverna is your average neighborhood Greek restaurant in Astoria. At Telly’s the service is exceptionally friendly but the food, in my experience, was rather mediocre.

The dips were good, especially the Taramosalata and the Tzatziki. Their bread was outstanding!! The rest of the meal though was rather ordinary. We tried the Porgy, which was nothing special as was the grilled octopus, which is usually one of my favorites.

I have to say that my experience at Telly’s was disappointing, given that Astoria has so many great Greek food choices like Agnanti, Taverna Kyclades or Aegean Cove.


Here is some of what we ate:


Grilled Octopus


Taramosalata, Tzatziki, Skordalia


Greek Salad




Lemon Potatoes
