Oresti’s tavern

According to many, it is the very best Greek in Amsterdam. The menu contains the tastiest Greek classics and dishes from the rest of the Mediterranean. From mezze as tzatziki, fried feta, and grilled octopus to larger dishes such as grilled swordfish and poussin. Don’t miss the desserts: you don’t want to miss the bougatsa (phyllo pastry with pastry cream)!

And we haven’t even talked about the unique interior yet…

Ikaria Park

Ikaria was only a to-go hotspot on Kwakerplein for a long time, but recently, they opened a second location: Ikaria Park. A restaurant in the Bilderdijkpark (near Café Binnenvisser and Loof), completely dedicated to Greek cuisine. A feast for the eyes and the stomach.

Gitane

Admittedly, Gitane is a bit of an odd one out on this list. At Gitane, they do not cook exclusively or traditionally Greek, but the influences are palpable thanks to the Greek chef.
