Good food and service

Definitely a proper place to have some supper. Quality/price very worthy. Not only main dishes and tapas, but also desserts of high quality. Even limoncelo was very good. Highly recommended if you value mediterranean food.

We went there with a group of 8 friends. The service was good and the staff friendly. The food was Mediterranean: Greek, Turkish, Spanish, Lebaneese... The ingredients were fresh and the mezze tasted great. We had two round of 'surprise' mezze, one "small" (mostly cold dishes and vegies) and one "big" (meat balls, different meat stews, etc.). I liked the... More

First walked past this place during the day whilst visiting the market and thought, 'tapas? May be worth a go' so we decided to come back later and what a great choice we made, staff were friendly, great service and the food was excellent, they also offered a few dishes that weren't tapas, we had the chefs special which was...

A great restaurant, The service team is kind, the spanish and "greek" tapas are good, the place is nice. The only improvement that i can notice is the patatas bravas, which are like potatoes chips with dipping sauces. But it's only a detail. P.

This place is not the ordinary tapas restaurant, and by saying that i mean, it's not the expected spanish tapas that they serve. We choose their surprise dinner and let the chef put together a menu for us. a collection of starter tapas at the first serving and then later on a larger collection of other tapas as main course....

I had a good experience at Orestis, and regret not returning there while I was in Amsterdam. My husband and I had a romantic dinner there on Xmas eve, and we were very well received! 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

I went here for the tapas, and I wasn't disappointed. One of the things I really liked was the choice between not only the traditional Spanish tapas, but between an immense variety of tapas from all kinds of different Mediterranean countries. We tried different things from different regions, and every single dish was excellent. The wines we had (first a... 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.

We finished our visit to the Heineken Experience and we hadn't had lunch, we were late for the brunch and it was early for dinner so we had problems in two different restaurants before arriving to Oresti's. Here everything was fine: friendly staff, open kitchen, and a table ready for seven in just two minutes although the place was almost... More
