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

The service at Oresti's Taverna was the main thing that impressed us - our waiter was extremely friendly and eager to help, explain the dishes and provide recommendations. They also had a great selection of dishes, and the tapas we ordered were pretty good. The place was very cosy, they had convenient seating inside and a lovely little garden at... More

Oresti's is a lot of fun, many tapas dishes that are great for sharing, the service and atmosphere are casual and fun but professional. Some of our highlights: Goat cheese tapas -baked and served with honey and pine nuts, Feta Cheese- fried and served with sweet sauce, Tzeziki, lambchops and many many more!

This restaurant was right around the corner from the apartment we were staying in, and came highly recommended. It did not disappoint! Delicious food, many options for the vegetarians in our family, reasonably priced, and the staff was over the top friendly. Would love to return to Amsterdam, and hope to eat here again.

On our last night in Amsterdam my family stayed local and went to Oresti's for dinner. We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Great food - we all shared the small plates - and super friendly service. It was a weeknight and we were lucky to get a table as this place is clearly popular. As happens sometimes, I ended up... More

Went here based on reviews and it didn't disappoint. We booked on line which was just as well because it was busy even at 6:30. The choice of tapas was great and grilled octopus special rea made it. It was off the beaten tourist track so we needed TA to point us to it. The waiters had to work hard... More

Made our choice based on tripadvisor for the vegetarian options - and there were plenty! Very welcoming staff - good advice and a nice selection of tapas. The place was busy and had a good vibe. If you are veggie you will be spoilt for choice!

I came here on my birthday wishing for a little slice of home, but it was disappointing. We switched reservations for later, but were not told the kitchen closes at 11pm. As soon as we sat down we were told that the kitchen closes at 11 so we had to order at once. The soutsoukakia arrived totally cold inside, the... More
