Spainish tapas- very good

We went on a week night and it was not crowded. The decor and service was nice and there were many good tapas to choose from, some Greek in origin.

We wandered the area near the apartment where we were staying and came upon this restaurant. I have lived in Spain, so I was confident I could order from the menu. The waitress was terrible. She did not bring the menu right away. When she took our order for the meal, she did not bring the bread we had ordered... More

It was our last night in Amsrerdam with our friends celebrating a 50th birthday and found Oresti's on Trip Advisor. It was about a half hour walk from our hotel and we only found it with the help of Google maps but we are so glad we did. We received such a warm welcome when we arrived from the owner,... More

We go to this restaurant occasionally. They have very big variety of -mediterranean- tapas menu and country of origin it's written on the side. The food is always tasty, and the stuff is very friendly (plus they play nice -mosly- greek music) As a Turk, i can say that this is one of the rare places in Amsterdam that offers... More

We have been sitting outside and left the restaurant before the main course which has not arrived after 120mns of waiting time. We have been bluntly ignored by the waiter and decided to leave when no one ever showed up for a good hour. When we said we would go, we experience no reaction by the staff. Places like this...

A pleasant environment for a tapas dinner on the day we arrived in Amsterdam. Fresh bread & dips, Calamari were the best. Away from tourist areas.

We got a lovely welcome from what we think was the owner which set the tone for a great evening. We were a group of 9, 5 of which went for a Gluten Free surprise menu. All of the food was delicious, and the waitress was a lot of fun and very professional. I had mentioned in the online booking... More

Oresti's came highly recommended on TripAdvisor and it for sure did not disapoint! First of all the service was friendly, eager to help and recommend dishes. Luckly we came fairly early as later during the evening the place got packed and the number of waiters would have needed to be doubbled. Seconly, the restaurant was very cosy and had an... More

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
