Barney’s started as a top quality coffeeshop that also happened to serve huge English & Irish breakfasts! As the reputation grew, so did the Barney's menu and number of shops. With Barney's Lounge, Barney's Farm & Bistro, and the latest "place to be", Barney's Uptown café & bar, the Barney's vibe is one of the best in Amsterdam, if not the world!

Barneys is a nice warm place, not massive but with comfy stools to sit on, its high quality.
Menu: 9
The Menu is a treat of tasty varietys, it has some of the best sativa hybrids of the moment, an is extremely uplifting.
Summary
This is probably on of the first places to call at, it has a top menu, not particulary cheap, but worth it, the Bar across the road is equally good an has a Dj on.
Service: 8
The service was quick an the guy was happy to talk an lend me a lighter.

Very trendy look makes it feel like a you are in an\"upmarket posh\" Coffee shop when compared to others.
Menu: 7
The menu has a varied selection, probably one of the best for choice.
Summary
I found that only two or thee types of weed on any give day are worth buying. So smell before and choose carefully. I liked their Blue cheese (light tasty for early day and their Tangerine dream (nice to chill out till you\'re ready to sleep)and finally Dr Grinspoon (strong enough for bedtime:)
Service: 8
The place is busy, really busy so staff can be short and curt with you. But I thought they did their job quite well, let you smell the bud, and if you go early the service is even better.

The design is fresh and clean. Due to its well known name Barneys is often packed to the door. Which can mean you will have to wait to get served and/or sit down. However they do also have a bar/lounge and seed shop on the same road.
Menu: 8
One of the well known names in Coffeeshops and Cannabis. Many popular strains on a big weed and hash menu. Acapulco Gold, Red Cherry Berry, G13 Haze and Blue Cheese are some of their best strains. Many Cannabis Cup winning strains pack the menu.
Summary
Big name strains from a big name coffeeshop. Can be a bit too crowded for my liking but they also have the bar/lounge to chill in and enjoy a drink with your smoke!
Service: 6
Can get very busy so service can slip, but when possible the staff do try to help. Like many busy shops the service tends to suffer when they are packed with customers and can\'t take time with each one.

Nice modern place
Menu: 5
The Menu had all their \"known\" strains as Vanilla kush, blue cheese and ofcourse Pineapple chunk. I dont get the fuss about their strains, how they could win anything.... really. It was the worst weed on my whole trip.
Summary
I really looked forward to try the Pineapple chunk, but it was very disappointing, so were Vanilla kush blue cheese and some of their hashes too. Cant believe it was so bad when they just won the cup with some of the strains. I have to say I love Indicas and didnt feel a thing from their top strains. Better indicas elsewhere, but if youre a sativa lover im sure you will like their strains!!!
Service: 5
The service sucked too, they were very rude and gave me stalks, and i couldnt see the weight. A bit pricey too i think

Pricey but delicious ;-) The nice name labels are a nice touch!
Summary
No matter what some say, barney\'s is a MUST during your trip to Amsterdam...I enjoy the Uptown Bar, also pricey but love the interior and photos...
Service: 10
I am a chick, so male staff usually treats me good :-) I have heard of some staff being arrogant or rude, but come on, everyone can have a bad day...

Re decorated and food service moved over the street, I loved the old set up!! Non existant atmosphere when I visited 11/10/10. Has become far too touristy for a frequent visitor.
Menu: 7
Would love to see a menu where you know how stoned or high you are going to get.
Summary
Went over the street for breakfast, or should I say breakslow. Very expensive and people were asked not to sit at a big table at the rear of the place. Full fry was 15 euro about 5 euro to much. Barneys has become the sort of place I would not waste shoe leather walking to.
Service: 8
Bud dude looked a little fed up, a place I used to rant about for being the place to sit and stare out the window has lost its appeal.

Vibe and Decor are awesome here. Partly because it's highly touristy i think, but still looks great and always get excited when I walk through that door!!
Menu: 10
Top menu. MOST of their products are hard to beat (violator isolator, barney rubble, Utopia Haze, Sweet Tooth...I can go on for days!!). I have had a couple of bad batches from here though, Red Diesel comes to mind, definately just a bad batch though
Summary
Service: 10
Bud tenders always happy to show me x different types of weed/hash, never had a problem with them, always happy to answer questions about the weeds too.

Bit overpriced, the G13 haze was top, but at that price should be! The blue cheese stunk & the napali temple ball was soft & spicy.

A must to viset just to say you been, getting a bit overpriced though, the breakfasts are noce though.

Cramped and very disapointing compared to its sister shops, - Uptown and Lounge. Decor is trippy and dated.
Menu: 10
One of the best places to purchase weed from in Dam. Try the G-13 Haze and the Honey Bee. Both fab both satty both clear strong highs. Although the HB is 100% satty so you wont get the munchies.
Summary
Cant wait till this shop gets the uptwon/louge treatment and gets a refurb

Menu: 8
You would sruggle not to find something for everybody on the menu maybe a little expensive but top quality, i luvvd the night shade and barney rubble last time i was there absolutely amazing stone.
Summary
Early in the morning for a wake and bake then get a munch also a great area for handy coffeshops.they have shut the food side and opened a rip off pub across the road, 11euro for a baileys and ice fuck that.
Service: 5
Service typical stoner friendly the food side is real slow sometimes but they let us use a bong from next door that is class when waiting for your scran.

I bought some sweet tooth from barneys during the 2007 cup & i found it over-rated to be honest,I found the G-13 haze a far better purchase overall.

Barneys is a cool place & i will go there again for sure.

The service wasnt bad! i didnt have to wait long + i got my weed with a smile.

Menu: 8
Cheese was real good, strangest yet one of the best smokes of my existence. Ufortantly was rather stoned in this place so cant remeber the other herb i smoked, but have been realiably informed it was the laughing buddha. Barney rubble is a amzing hash.
Summary
First off this place is touristy, weed is good but expensive, breakfast is real expensive, but it wouldn't be amsterdam without the morning doob at barneys.

Nice, bright decor with great tables and free Vulcanovaporizer. We went there for breakfast and is was really crowded, but if you wait a few minutes you`ll get a table....
Menu: 10
Hmmmm, weed prices between 5 and 10 Euros. Had the "Laughing Buddha (10)", "Buddhas Sister (8)", "Morning Glory (10)" and "hashplant (5)", the most strains were good cured, Laughing Buddha was superb!!!!
Summary
All in all, one of the "TOP 5"-Coffeeshops in Adam... We also like the place for his nice sorrounding (Harlemmerstraat, Joordan)...
Service: 8
To us the staff were total friendly and helpfull, but friends of mine were treaten to pay there food twice -> rip-off....

some fine weed in here. had morning glory myself, but mates bought sweet tooth, laughing buddah and stella blue. all really nice.

barneys is a rally nice place. but definately try the bar on the corner before going in to the bigger one.

Too many people want to be here and the place is too small for this much interest so it gets crowded easy. Strange interior which looks out of date.

No surprise the menu looks good. Had the Essential Flower which was allright.
Summary
Famous for the food they serve, so if you are hungry and want to blow, go there if you don't mind their expensive prices.
Service: 2
Much fuss about nothing for drinks or food: they don't want to help you when you go to the bar and they order you to sit down where they will take your order. They try to look busy and myseriously leave when it gets crowded. Weed service was very helpfull.

Generally pretty good but the quality does vary. I was sold some very respectable sweet tooth on a Wednesday and went back for a bigger purchase on the friday and was sold a very inferior weed as "sweet tooth".
Summary
I used to really like this shop but over the last few years it has gone right down hill. It has lost it's roots and sold out to the tourists and the mighty Euro. The owner is a nice guy (Derry) but be warned, I had the 'cheek' to suggest that his weed wasn't as good as some other shops had to offer and he took a rather childish strop with me.
Service: 4
Extremely variable and definitley expensive. The food is pretty average and some of the staff are downright rude.

Great menu, there was six of us, so we tried quite a few- would recommend any of them, names we can remeber are morning glory,mekong haze and sweet tooth

We noticed they were strict with ID with under twenties, which can be a good or bad thing depending on which side of eighteen you are. GO FOR BREAKFAST!!! Best you'll get in Dam!

Waitress service was much appreciated, and we could run up a tab which stopped us having to fuck about with money all the time. everyone was really friendly.

Hard, but not impossible to get in with wheelchair. Cool sculpted tables. Bob Dylan on the CD player was replaced by Pearl Jam CD I made for Barney's. Nice touch of home! I was there early and was not rushed or crowded.
Menu: 10
AWESOME! I visited 34 shops in 13 days and Sweet Tooth was the only weed that got on top of me. A total whiteout after only two bong hits was averted by timely application of fresh grapefruit juice! Also tried the Temple Ball and Morning Glory.
Summary
Barney's is one of my top three shops, along with the Noon and Rokerij. Cool people, good food, great tunes and a free bud of the CC winner Morning Glory before it was available to the general public (Thanks Derry!) as thanks for the PJ CD made this the place to be early mornings in the Dam! Ask to hear the PJ mix while you're there.
Service: 9
If you get your ass out of bed and get there early it is fine. Miriam was great with the weed and the food. If you get there later don't bitch and moan. Remember there is usually one waitress and she has to deal with all you stoned tourists!

It looks like a greasy spoon cafe. Orientated for eating, which is what I expected.
Menu: 8
Good menu. I got the impression that what was on offer was of a decent quality based on our Northern Lights purchase.
Summary
I don't care if their blow is any good or not, I'm not prepared to go back to a place which makes me feel nervous and unwelcome. I'm sure most of the staff are fine, but the grumpy blonde scared the shit out of me.
Service: 1
The first time practically in my life that I've been very pissed off by service. The blonde haired lady was very rude, chastising me for not saying good morning to her when I walked in. "Hi there" obviously isn't good enough.

The only good thing we found abut this menu was the caramello hash, which was soft and a great smoke!
Summary
Barneys is something that everyone should do once...and only once. The food was almost below average, slow service, and the place was full of Americans!
Service: 2
S........l.......o.......w! I know Amsterdam isn't as fast paced as some places, but there weren't a lot of people inside, and we thought it could have moved a bit faster.

Menu: 10
Haven't tried any of their weed yet, but I'm definitely trying the Sweet Tooth next time I go. Heard way too many good comments about it.
Summary
If you can get a seat, stop in. Took me a few times walking by to spot an empty seat at the counter, but well worth it.
Service: 10
Always pleasant. Say hi to Derry the owner if you spot him. Very cool guy. Friendly waitress.

Excellent hash here. We tried malana cream on this visit and was very good quality. All expensive here though.

Lots of tables, dim light inside and bright natural light by the window. That's been the starting point of the SGF Cup 2002. Here we have introduced one another and promised the world to smoke it all.

Tangerine Dream, Morning Glory, Manali, Helter & Kelker Rubble, King Hassan, Sweet Tooth, Barney Rubble... Our judges were overwhelmed.

All my tours in Amsterdam have started here. And they always will.

nice curves creating a cool, chilled place to be high.
Menu: 9
extensive menu that caters for must tastes, the sweet-tooth was great, i was on a bouncy hazy high for 6 hours after a fatty.
Summary
of my limited experience of amsterdam coffee-shops, barney's had to be my favourite, it was a nice place, the food and drink was good, the punters friendly, the staff friendly, the music cool, and the sweet-tooth mind-blowing
Service: 8
im not sure where most of the other reviewers actually went, but it cant have been barney's, the staff were helpfull, fast and pleasant.

Nice decor, looks comfy for breakfast. Only stopped by for some smoke to go...
Menu: 7
I was so pumped up about trying the CC winner Sweet tooth that I picked up 3 grams and only 1 gram of the mekong haze. Loved the haze but found myself disapointed by the Sweet Tooth. I tasted/felt like soooo many other smokes. What's the big deal?
Summary
Didn't stay long enough to fully comment but the Tooth was overrated, the Haze NICE and the atmosphere/prices were more than fair.
Service: 8
The waitress looked a bit stressed but the dealer was more than happy to talk shop. I'd like to stop by for a full breakfast next time.

absolutely crap. lanky guy and sharp faced woman were rude, practically asking people to leave once they had finished their food. most orders were delivered cold or wrong with no apology.

They sell some nice Grass and I always walk out well stoned and happy so I cant complain, I havent tried any Hash from here so I cant comment.

No opinion, did not buy anything, di not even get a good look at the menu.

beautiful decor and i personally like the bench type seating where one can converse and eat breakfast with other stoners
Menu: 8
this years cannabis cup winner is a must try. Appropreatly called sweet tooth it has a very mild sweet rose flavor. The high is subtle and nice very mellow. I was high for almost an hour on this gear.
Summary
last year when i visited the irish breakfast which they are known for was amazing. They have recently gotten a new chef. I returned this year and the food leaves much to be desired in fact i was sick for two days afterward. A plus is that they do sell really bangin t-shirts.
Service: 6
service was ok....the owner was very nice and knowledgeable of the gear there. the new cook on the other hand didnt speak much english and seemed out of it.

Very cool looking place. Could definately benefit from a good scrubbin' though. It looked like the tables hadn't seen a sponge for quite a while.
Menu: 6
OK. Not the best, but not the worst either.
Summary
Horrible food. Runny eggs, greasy pancakes, burned toast and undercooked bacon. I thought the Sweet Tooth was ok, but the Helter Skelter hash I bought for 45fl sucked. Tasted like tree bark. This place was a BIG disappointment. Not all it's hyped up to be.
Service: 4
Very slow. I would expect slow service if it was busy, but there were only 3 people in the place including myself and my girlfriend.

A cool looking place. Kind of cramped. Hard to find a place to sit. The tables are sticky and dirty. And when I was there the door was slightly broken.
Menu: 6
Large menu. I was disappointed with the "Sweet Tooth" and when I asked for whatever their best was, I wasn't too impressed with that either.
Summary
Overall I think Barney's is kind of over-rated. Tourist trap to say the least. THE FOOD WAS NOT GOOD EITHER -- AVOID THE PANCAKES.
Service: 6
Slow, slow service. Kind of rude. Not friendly.

I really love this decor. No hard angles, all rounded corners and "fluid forms". Bright and airy even when it's crowded (usually). Communal tables make for a very social atmosphere.
Menu: 7
Good but damn expensive... Yay-zoos! I really like Temple Balls & Essential Flower from the old daze but I can't afford to try much of the Mekong Haze or new stuff cuz I don't get paid that much....
Summary
Barney's is always a great place to have a lil' smoke & snack & smoke! Still worth visiting if you can make the time...
Service: 9
Really nice staff, even when busy! It's tough enough dealing with customers as a food waiter/waitress let alone having to deal with some seriously stoney heads as well!

Nice. Just nice. Really crowded even in the winter. Go early if you want breakfast.
Menu: 4
Tried their CC weed. The sweet tooth was shit in my opinion. The mekong haze wasn't any better. Maybe they sold me other weed that wasn't selling. I tried 1 bong hit of each and gave the rest away to another tourist. Sorry.
Summary
To wrap it up in a nutshell, I'd go back for the breakfast. Maybe I am too heavy a smoker to be affected by their products.
Service: 10
Very friendly for being so damn busy. I really liked that part of the visit. Busy, yet takes the time to care. If only they had better weed.

The decor was O.K., but it was the people and the food that really made Barney's special.
Menu: 9
They had pleanty of the weed that won the people's choice award from the cannabis cup, I don't remember the name. It was a real nice high.
Summary
Great breakfast. Great staff. Great smoke. I had read quite a few guides before going to Amsterdam and they all rated Barney's highly. After visiting it, I now see why. I would put it down as a "must" stop for anyone making the pilgrimage to the 'Dam.
Service: 10
I had the most marvelous lecture on the different types of hash they offered. Very cool. By the time he got through, everyone in the place was crowded around listening. I loved it. Very nice of him to take the time. Great hash by the way.
