Dolphin's Coffeeshop may just be the most unique shop in the city! It has the most amazing decor, making you feel like sitting in a real fish tank.

Located just a stumble from Leidseplein, this place has two floors to choose from and very friendly staff.

Try the special Dolphin Space Cupcake, if you can handle it!

Probably one of Amsterdams coolest looking coffeeshops. An underwater, dolphin-themed chillout zone. The dolphin theme extends throughout the whole shop and even the menu.
Menu: 6
Quite a limited menu, but normally fair quality for the price. Their house strain - The White Dolphin, is very like a good White Widow and is fair priced. A few years back I was also given a receipt for my weed - which was cool!
Summary
You feel like your chillin\' underwater with the dolphins but your just at The Dolphins Coffeeshop. It is Amsterdam after all!
Service: 7
Friendly shop. Not the most knowledgable, as they only have a small menu. But they have always been friendly and makes The Dolphins a relaxed place to go.

Never seen anything like it! You don\'t even have to smoke anything strong to feel tripped out. Even the outside of the building matches the interior
Menu: 8
Good selection and some of the hash I saw looked really good!
Summary
A good shop to stop by in the Leidseplein area. Definitely worth a visit.
Service: 9
Service was quick and friendly. I like the bar area upstairs, you can sit at the bar and talk to the staff. The downstairs is cozy too, especially when you have a larger group.

It is like stepping into a underwater wonderland. It is a very cool shop. They are one of the few shops that I have seen vaporizers at which is a great addition.
Menu: 9
I ordered the White Dolphin. The flavor was exquisite with notes of mint and a certain fruit, which I could not distinguish. It had a very mellow almost sleep inducing effect.
Summary
This is definitely one of my favorite shops in A-Dam
Service: 9
I have been to this shop each time i visit the city, and every time their service is very friendly and eager to help.

Vibrant and funky, however a tiny bit tacky.
Menu: 9
Awesome. Only bought a spacecake (which was delicious), and the White Dolphin blend of weed. The weed sent me tripping for hours. Highly recommended.
Summary
Definitely worth a visit. Vaporisers were kinda neat too. Comfy chairs downstairs!
Service: 7
Hit and miss. We went there twice. The first lady was really friendly and welcoming, always with a smile on her face. The second was ok, not in the same league of friendliness of the first.

The decor is really great for getting stoned around! Definitely unique. Very busy; I remember fish and dolphins all over the place...
Menu: 6
The menu was maybe a little bit smaller than in a few other places. I smoked something strong and later just concentrated my eyes on the walls:)
Summary
I think that dolphins is worth the walk from the Dam. Its great to visit when staying in the Leidseplein area.

Menu: 10
I can't remember what we bought here, but I was the most stoned I have ever been after a couple of joints.
Summary
A really nice place in a quieter part of town.
Service: 8
I was pretty damn stoned going in and can't rember too much but we got drinks and bud no problem so it must have been ok.

It might have been because of this Northern Light but I had the best joint I ever had. Of course the whole atmosphere of the moment added to the experience.

Exellent setting around the corner of a sidestreet on your way to the Leidseplein.

Relaxed. Don't go there if you are not willing to spend all the time they need but they are friendly.

small. i bought 1 gram of the royal dolphin for 12.50 euro's. and to be honest id smoked a lot better while in the dam.
Summary
the place really didnt do anything for me and i expected a lot more from the royal dolphin for what i paid for it. the malana cream from the tweede kamer blows it away!!!
Service: 8
service was very good even though the place was packed when i was there

The Dolphin has some of the best wall art we have seen in Amsterdam. Its almost like being underwater! Make sure you head downstairs for some more great wall art and some kickin couches. The bar is really awesome too, the bottles are built right in! We also liked the fishies!
Menu: 7
The menu is small, and doesn't have all to much to our liking.
Summary
This is a great place to just chill and smoke with friends. We spent several mornings there for a "wake and bake". If you go in, make sure you say hi to Ginger, and the lil goldfish.
Service: 10
This was the first coffee shop ever for one of us, and it couldn't have been a better experience. The girl there, Ginger was so nice, and she rolled us a special "tulip" joint, which we passed all around the bar with people we just met. For sure a 10!

upstairs, the walls are covered in some crazy shiiit, all nicely themed around sealife. the lights over the bar are in essence, fishtanks. downstairs, there is some crazy ass paintings on the wall, truly remarkable shiiit.
Menu: 8
short and sweet. "white dolphin" is the daddy. no, fuck that... the MACK daddy. er... didnt try anything else.
Summary
its a decent place, just to stop by and mill in. nice atmosphere ensures maximum chillage. be careful though, you can loose yourself in there all day. but is all love, so check it out.
Service: 6
it looked like there was a shortage of staff, but the poor bloke can hold his own. acceptable.

This coffeeshop have some really nice paintings on the wall and a great atmosphere that makes you forgett that you are inside a building (at least after a joint or two)
Menu: 7
Not too many too choose from but they really hit you right between your eyes.
Summary
This is a really nice coffeeshop, and the weed is really good. Smoke one skunk and then was going to head back to my hotell, walked the wrong direction for 30 minutes or something and then realized that the hotell would have been a 10 minute walk back across Leidseplein from Dolphins.

I am only giving them a 6 cause I tried their White Dolphin hash and it was like smoking dried dirt.

I don't know what BKB saw, but I like the Dolphins decor. Straight undersea matey! A "crusty" wall covering with built in aquariums and water towers make for a cool decor and the bar provides a chatty environment.

Not a large menu, but what they have is always top-notch for me. I really like the Royal Dolphins Polm and their White Dolphin weed.
