Description: With Parallel Amsterdam, Roel and Imre join forces for the first time in the restaurant industry. "We want to show that Spain has more flavors than just the well-known tapas."

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge of our hotel, and we headed there the first night of our stay in Amsterdam. It was easy to get to via the No. 1 tram from our hotel, Hotel Fita. It was a warm evening, so we chose to sit outside, where there were a number of tables on the street, so people-watching was part of the fun.

Our principle on visiting a fine restaurant is to let the chef choose our meal for us, so when we saw the "Surprise Menu" offering on the menu, it really appealed. This restaurant features Mediterranean offerings concocted by a Spanish chef, so we knew we were in for something special. We were not disappointed.

We arranged for a small pour of a wine paired with each of the four courses. Our first course was phenomenal! We could tell we were in for an exceptional gastronomic experience. So as not to spoil any future menu surprises, suffice it to say that this is not your run-of-the-mill restaurant. If you enjoy fine dining, consider Parallel. The winner pairings were absolute winners. We would go back in a heartbeat.

We found this restaurant by hazard because at the beginning we’ve looked for another, and it was a wonderful time!
They serve a lot of tapas, we took patatas bravas, meat (from Argentina) and risotto and it was perfect!
You need to try this restaurant!
Also, the service is really great

Really fabulous meal and great service. All items in the Croquette sampler were perfectly done and tasty, the ceviche was quite good and the almond gazpacho, while not my favorite dish, was interesting and worth trying. My waitress was friendly and attentive and everything priced fairly. Worth a try if in Amsterdam.

Went initially for a drink then decided to eat. Unfortunately the place got very busy and the staff were difficult to get hold of. When we did get served they were courteous and helpful and the food was excellent. 4 stars was the overall experience. Add a star at a more quiet time as you most likely will enjoy.
