Lovely tapas and wine. Service was good. Much better then other places near the tourists centre. We have lamb chops, feta cheese with honey, chicken wing, bacon with dates. Wine was very very reasonable price.

Went to Oresti’s Taverna on our last night in Amsterdam and wasn’t disappointed at all. I love tapas and thoroughly enjoyed it here. Plenty of choice of different dishes, from meat to fish to vegetables. Service was quick and friendly.
