Decor was fairly basic but overall a great atmosphere in here. A friendly feel to the place and very clean. We went quite early in the day and were the only people there but iv been past before and seen it very busy late afternoon.
Menu: 8
I tried the NY Diesel and Nevilles Haze here. Both were a top quality smoke and reasonably priced. There isnt a massive choice on the menu but what they do have is outstanding!!
Summary
Overall this place is a little gem located on a sidestreet just off the Damrak. Gear is above average in quality and staff are very welcoming. I will return!!
Service: 10
Very friendly staff. Girl behind the juice bar was quite chatty, the dealer didnt have a lot to say but served us with a smile.

A busy little place with more than enough room. Typically dutch bar timbered style hung with supersize portraits of musical icons and a large HD flatscreen playing wildlife vids whilst listening to fantastic guitar music (on that lazy sunday morning).
Menu: 8
Not the biggest menu but too much choice can delay sampling far too long, can personally recommend the Parvati Cream and the Lemon Haze...
Summary
returned here several times over a long weekend the cool atmosphere and the bluesy rhythms and the volcano\'s kept calling me.
Service: 8
warm and friendly welcome even early on a lazy sunday morning. Bud lady was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Oh did i mention patient! :)

Very popular with tourists, especially Americans. Looks a bit more like a Dutch bar or cafe with lots of wood everywhere. A friendly upbeat atmosphere. Often a first stop for tourists as its just down the road from Centraal Station.
Menu: 7
A small menu and prices can be a little high, but it is in a very central location. They stock popular strains like Super Silver Haze and NYC Diesel. The quality tends to be pretty good, nothing too great but better than other coffeeshops in the centre.
Summary
Well known for being one of the few coffeeshops playing classic rock music. Very popular with American tourists. Small but good menu, though can be more expensive than other places.
Service: 6
The bar/coffeeshop atmosphere carries across to the service. Can be a bit crowded and mostly full of American tourists, but tourists are there to have a good time so a happy environment is created.

Cafe 420 is always our first stop on arrival. The atmosphere is like the stoned cat that sits on the bar ..chilled. At night the atmosphere gets better its quiet and private and the lights above the bar create a warm felling like home.
Menu: 7
Ive been going back for years and the menu has got smaller but good quality and reasonable prices. I love shiva but its not available anymore but still good choice.
Summary
Service: 8
The bud tender is very cool and helpful. The bar tender was very nice and she was happy to make tea\'s and coffee. There was a london girl working there on the last trip she was a bit rude but other than her really good service.

Typical brown cafe styling. Very dutch atmosphere and you're not gonna get bothered by silly little underage stoners as they id nearly everyone. Even little old me and I'm nearer 35 than 18.
Menu: 8
Great quality classic weeds. You have to buy weed here if you wanna vaporise it in their vab Volcanos. Plus the bonus of it here is the staff do it for you taking out all of the effort of using a vape. Super Silver haze is always a good choice.
Summary
Great shop in the centre. I always go here to vaporise stuff in the day.
Service: 10
Fab service and informative staff if you need help with your weed choices. I have noticed they give a real opinion on the weeds and they dont try to bullshit.

This place is cool, from the music to the staff. Nicely panelled wooden type shop, great atmosphere, cool tunes at a reasonable volume.... top draw.
Menu: 8
While the menu isn't the longest the quality is there.... 3 Sativa's all cool, the 420 Haze my Favourite of the whole trip, 3 inica's and 6 hash's. The NL5 Haze was a nice giggle, the creeper haze very intense. get em all in thay Vaporizer!
Summary
Go here.... you won't be disapointed.... full of adults all wanting the same thing ... a great all round experience....if you're 18 -24 and want to party forget it... the chances are you'll never of heard a tune played here and would find it all a bit quiet.... for the more mature smoker and I don't mean old..... go here , make a point of it!
Service: 10
Great Bar staff, knowledgeable dealers... only too happy to keep the Vap bags comming, even with our own weed.

Looks like an old fashioned Dutch bar but the crowd is very loose, which results in a unique mix of coffeeshop & pub atmosphere.
Menu: 10
Had the Phazer which was damn good stuff. Good quality for your money: I payed only 4.80€ for the prerolled plus a coke, which is a positive exception in this neighboorhood.
Summary
Ideal for a late night smoke.
Service: 8
Low profile but accurate.

You could very well spend a whole day in this place! It provides great atmospheres for getting seriously high or just mellowing out with its small yet cozy environment
Menu: 8
Not extensive, good prices, worth trying out the phazers
Summary
Almost everything about De Kuil (pronounced de ka-wel) is right for a good smoke, you can even bring food from the excellent bakery opposite into the coffeeshop! The microscope always works, the vaporiser will send you away, the music will chill you out, needless to say this is my favourite

Service with a sincere smile, very helpful, informative,

Menu: 7
not the most extensive but also not the most expensive either. I just chose the phazer after having seen the UCG reviews and wasn't disappointed.

again, friendly and relaxed. the guy offered his opinion and advice on the weed I chose and wasn't pushy.

De Kuil has a wooden interior and a bar type feel. The atmosphere is definitely laid back, with an ethos of 'anything goes'. You can bring your own food, there's a pool table and it is situated in a central location. An ideal haunt.
Menu: 9
Decent selection of grass. Phazer well worth trying, as is the Northern Lights. Try either in the vaporiser and say goodbye to the afternoon.
Summary
On our first visit, there was a solitary gentleman sat down by the pool table with his head in his hands. Absolutely wrecked. He didn't move for an hour, and when he finally pulled himself together and left, we discovered that he had been sick all over the table. Nice. The cheerful barman just shrugged his shoulder, cleaned up the mess and gratefully pocketed the grass he had left behind.
Service: 10
Exceptionally friendly staff. Able to assist with any query - bud related or otherwise. Usually stoned and more than happy for you to try out the vaporiser.

Menu: 10
Nice selection, I prefer the Shiva, kick ass weed, covered with drippy crystals. Awesome flavor and aroma, with a very high buzz.
Summary
Very close to Central Station, always a first stop after arriving to Central.
Service: 10
The staff are very nice, friendly, and helpful. Joost is especially nice and so is Greg, they are real good to get the vaporizor burning for you!
