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.
