“Great Dinner”
Review of Parallel Amsterdam

Parallel Amsterdam
Ranked #9 of 4,521 Restaurants in Amsterdam
Price range: USD 5 - USD 46
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." They have inspired themselves by the lively hospitality of Spain, where they spent a lot of time together. The duo introduced a refreshing Spanish concept in the Amsterdam restaurant world.

This is a modern Spanish Restuarant where my wife and I started off with Spanish Charcuterie (sliced meat dish, patey and pickled vegetables). The menu has many course selections but we went for the excellent main courses Creamy Rice (with cheese and mushrooms) and the Secreto Iberico (pork slice, secret because the butcher's used to keep it to themselves). I also must mention I had a very refreshing lemon drink with whiskey (forgot the name) .... well not just one... 3!

If you're ever in Amsterdam, you HAVE to go here!
My friend and I had the "Surprise 4 Course Menu" which definitely didn't disappoint. All of the dishes were perfectly balanced, well thought out and the presentation was some of the best I've seen. We met the chef after our meal - an authentic and lovely man from Spain who has done a lot of travelling and incorporated all of the best things in to his dishes.
The service SHONE at this restaurant. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel incredibly welcome and all of the staff appeared to be 100% genuine. Our waitress explained every dish beautifully and nothing was too much trouble - our wine glasses were never empty which was fabulous!
A completely authentic FIVE STAR experience that you would be disappointed to miss.

I went here with my cousin bcs the restaurant is on the other side of the street where she lives. Always wanted to go there since they changed the restaurant into parallel. Not sure if it is the same owner but the food was very good! The waiter was also very nice and funny. It’s a quiet place and has a nice atmosphere!

Luckily located very near to Vondelpark, we came across to this novelty. The cozy ambience made us feel very welcome, we came without reservation and the restaurant was completely full but the manager offered us to have a beer at the bar while trying to find a table for us, after few minutes we had the table ready, menu was very innovative, classic Spanish dishes but with a distinctive touch. We had the best black rice ever!!! Dutch meeting point where to enjoy the atmosphere of the local community! A must to add in your visit to Amsterdam.
