Had lots of tasty tapas and really liked the atmosphere and sumptuous surroundings. Service was friendly and really helpful and there was a really interesting mix of hot and cold dishes.

A group of us, from the UK, ate in Oresti's on Wednesday following the trip advisor recommendations and we had a fantastic evening! We had the 'surprise us' option, where the staff chose our food for us and every single dish that was brought to us was amazing, so tasty, varied and plenty of it. The staff we also excellent...

This restaurant is simply a delight! Very, very friendly. Warm and cozy atmosphere. Delicious tapas style dishes. Affordable (considering the quantity of dishes and drinks we consumed). Amazing variety. And because this is a family owned and operated restaurant, the family did all they could to ensure we had an excellent dining experience. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Gluten free dining in Amsterdam is difficult but a superb option is Oresti’s Taverna in the Latin Quarter. Leo expertly guided me through every gluten free option from the mainly Greek and Spanish Tapas choices. When the food arrived we immediately realised that this was one of the best dining experiences ever – and we have eaten in many Tapas... More

We just spent a vacation in Greece and had a layover in Amsterdam. Being a Greek American, I was still craving more Greek food! Oresti's was PERFECT! Nice atmosphere, very friendly, and excellent food (they have a variety of Greek, Spanish, and I believe some Italian). The owner saw to it that everything was to our satisfaction. The nice surprise... More

I recently visited this restaurant and it was absolutely wonderful. The food was so delicious and plenty to chose from being a vegetarian. The staff were very friendly and were happy to educate us about the menu and advise recommendations. The meal was also very reasonable and cost less than 50 Euro even with wine.

Perfectly nice food and great service. Wouldn't say this place was anything special but if you want a quick simple Greek tapas style meal at a reasonable price with good service, you can't go wrong in here. Very friendly waiter and only 45 euros for two courses and drinks. Good value.

We had dinner here last weekend. Both of us had never had Greek before and didn't know what to expect, so we let the owner recommend us a few tapas dishes to try. He was very friendly and made several great suggestions. All the tapas was good, the only negative thing was that we didn't get all the things we... More

We found this place by chance and are so glad we stopped. The staff were all very friendly and attentive without hovering. The food was delicious. We had a variety of tapas, such as octopus, fondue, lamb cutlets, and lamb patties. The mix of choices was great, but as mentioned the tapas are from the Mediterranean rather than just one... More

We just had dinner at Oresti's. The staff was most friendly and the food excellent. We enjoyed the beef, lamb, scampi, mushrooms, ahi tuna and stuffed pepper - all good tapas. I would not call it authentic Greek food, but it was delicious and great for sharing with friends. We also had a couple desserts: baklava, gelato - light and... More
