This place served a really large selection of tapas. And they were true tapas - small plates, but could be shared by two if you wanted to try different ones. Really delicious. The staff were ridiculously friendly, but probably because we were a bunch of women. Lots of flirting going on, but not in an offensive way. Just lots of... More

If you want to eat real Spanish food, you should go here. Everything we ordered tasted great. I don't think that we have ever had better tapas in the Netherlands. Staff is very friendly and attentive.

Passed here on our way to Anne Frank house and then again as we got off the canal trip. Looked really small from outside but fancied tapas and headed in. As with many places in Amsterdam it was bigger inside than it had looked. Had 4 tapas dishes which were delicious, a couple of beers, desserts and coffees do r... More

Stumbled upon this tapas place after our canal cruise right by Anne Frank Huis and was looking just for a quick bite. Had the meatballs, iberico ham & cheese platter, baked salted paprikas, & salty potatoes and they were a great combination of flavors! All in all the whole meal was enjoyable and the service was great. Will definitely recommend... More

We found Parra via TripAdvisor and decided to try it out for dinner one night. It turned out to be one of our favorite meals in Amsterdam. The restaurant decor is a bit basic, but they're turning out some excellent food and sangria here, and we've had a lot of tapa during our travels. The server was excellent, the food... More

Dropped in for a late lunch, nice little place with a cool view of the canal and streets. Food was very good, after being in Spain not quite amazing but definitely good quality. Highlight was the ham and tomato mini rolls. Service ok but a little slow, they had just opened for the evening session so possibly had to get... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
