An excellent place to eat Greek food! It has a warm atmosphere inside and the food is great. I am Greek myself and I know how the Greek food must be cooked and the food here is extraordinary! Also great service. Everything was perfect. The only drawbacks are the little big prices and the small food portions(compared to the portions... More

We booked a table online. When we arrived at the restaurant we had been allocated a table with high stools which myself and my partner knew we would find very uncomfortable. We asked to be moved but were told there were no alternatives available although they would try to accommodate us when a party finished their meal. We were please... More

We came to Oresti's Taverna to dinner and celebrate birhtday. The restaurant has very nice ambient and the staff is very friendly. The owner welcomed us and it was a very nice gesture, he is very kind and they also prepared a surprise for a friend with fireworks on the top of the desserts. The food is very good, we... More

Fantastic meal in relaxed atmosphere. The lamb chops were a particular highlight. 2-3 dishes per person was more than enough when sharing in a large group. There was a 20% discount booking through trip advisor but our party was too large for this to go through on the website... we enquiries when we got there and they still the discount.... More

Visited on a recommendation from a work colleague.. and I am thankful for this. Food selection was great, predominantly Spanish and Greek with a few other dishes. But from what I had and could see from other diners you can't really go wrong. Good size tapas potions Good selection of beers which seem to change regularly. Staff were friendly and... More

Very bad experience. When we arrived (on time) there was no table available in spite of our reservation. When they offered us (a family) to eat at the bar (!) we decided to leave.

Being in Amsterdam for the weekend we had hoped to spend time walking around the streets on Saturday evening, enjoying the sights. Unfortunately the weather turned into torrential rain so we headed back towards our hotel in De Pijp. A quick search and we found Orestis. It was busy but we were given a table after a very short wait.... More

A friend and I came here for dinner based off the reviews on tripadvisor and were very dissapointing, the service was terrible, larger groups came in after us and got seated at tables before we did, waiter did not come around to take drink or food orders until we had to flag them down. Would not revisit.

Neighbourhood 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.
