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

My husband and I stumbled on this place, located a block off a busy intersection, and were so happy we did! The staff was very friendly and some of the most polite we came across in Amsterdam. Most of the menu is tapas style and we ordered 6 items to share. The mushrooms were one of the best things I... More

My wife and I were on our way to another restaurant when we stumbled upon Oresti's Taverna. The owner is Greek and the food has many Greek themes, but overall it is Mediterranean cuisine. What I liked the most were the small "tapas" portions which allowed us to try six different dishes, two glasses of wine each and under 50... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant not far from our hotel (Museumplein) and looked on Trip Advisor for suggestions. We were not disappointed. The tortilla was amazing and everything else we ordered (chicken, salad, fried zucchini, etc). Great portion sizes for a tapas place. The cost can add up depending on what/how much you order. I would go... More

Took a friend here to celebrate a birthday. We were warmly greeted by the staff and welcomed in style. The menu is a mix of Greek and Mediterranean. We each selected 3 different Tapa's to share and they brought them out in taste pairings that fit. I would say that at least 4 of them were simply amazing (white bean... More
