The service is attentive, kind, and the Xmas menu was great. I don't know what I liked most, the food or the ambient, which is... More

A short walk from the Heiniken Experience. We were lucky to get a table on this very busy Saturday evening. A wide selection of dishes to chose from. Everything was very fresh, nicely cooked and very tasty. We will definatley go back next time we visit.

Here everything was fine: friendly staff, open kitchen, and a table ready for seven in just two minutes although the place was almost... More

Oresti's Taverna is a great place to go for some varied and tasty tapas. Greek dishes were best in our experience, but it was all perfectly nice.

Had an enjoyable night out, excellent table in the back, wide variety to choose from. Ordered selection of tapas, kalimari - pata negra - manchego - spanakopitakia - salade caprese - souvlaki - goat cheese with honey - bread and a bottle of AXIA red wine. Staff somewhat chaotic, took 25 minutes to bring out the bill. Will definitely return... More
