The huge green lit building grabs your attention as you walk from Centraal Station down the Damrak. A coffeeshop, bar, restaurant and steakhouse all in one building. Seems to be designed for tourists.
Menu: 5
Both the quality and price was a bit dissappointing. The selection is ok but they are definitely a tourist coffeeshop. Ok if you want a smoke and drink or a meal but not a great coffeeshop by itself.
Summary
Tourist hangout. Friendly but expensive. The terrace out front is a nice place to sit have a smoke and a drink though.
Service: 6
The service is ok. While the budtender wasn\'t that knowledgeable the bar staff are very friendly.

probly one of the first coffee shops you can see coming from central station, however probly not the first one you want to go in. this place looks cool with a big red button to press for the menu but thats all its got goin for it really.
Menu: 2
i refused to buy from this tourist trap. a friend got ripped off on some Purple Sensi (1g for like 15euro)lol the darkest bullshit iv ever seen, it stunk of shit and i was ashamed of him for smokin it. what an amature!!
Summary
no one that really knows amsterdam goes here more than once. lol when i was there some guy dropped a tray of like 6 coffees all over the floor. lol almost made it worth goin there... but not really.
Service: 2
the staff didnt bother tellin us bout the weed they just took our money, the drinks where so over priced i shared a coke with a buddy, then left.

decor is ok,the colest thing is the house of the coffeeshop from the outside. This BIG house can be transfomed into smokers paradise, but only with an other owner!
Menu: 1
There was a time in Nl( before there was the ÔéČuro) where you recieved 5 gram from the best weed for the price you now pay in the Grasshopper for about 1 gram normal weed. They are totally out of mind! And to be honest, the weedquality is only "normal".
Summary
in my last 8 years of amsterdamtravelling i never was so dissapointed about a shop. but the only thing where they score big time is the thing "how to screw up the people" first calss rip off shop! For sure the worst shop i ever visited (last place out of over 200 isnt bad uh?)
Service: 1
Even for me as an german european the service was rude and bad from my point of view, sorry. sidenote, i actually wanted to write about the other shop in redlight district, but they are quite the same. A total waste of time and money!

Crap! As soon as we walked in we were confroonted by a burly security guard that demanded we buy drinks, even before finding a seat (it was so busy we wanted to make sure we could get a seat first). So rude and off-putting!
Menu: 2
Nothing special at all.
Summary
Tourist trap. Convenient for your last smoke as you are entering and leaving amsterdam, but that's all. Avoid this one, too commercial.
Service: 1
Abysmal. Did not stay to get served after being confronted by rude doorman. Prefer being treated like a hman being than a piece of sh*t!

Sterile, touristy atmosphere with stylish 'sophisticated pub' decor. Skinned up a spliff after buying a beer and a coffee. No-one bothered me and I managed to relax slightly.
Menu: 4
Expensive. Didn't even give it a second glance because everthing about it screamed 'naaaaaaay'!
Summary
Touristy and designed to strip you of your Euros as swiftly as possible. I would avoid this unless you are stuck for somewhere to rest your bones.
Service: 6
The bar staff were OK and unoffensive.

Didn't like this place when I got in, tourist atmosphere all around. Nobody behind the bar to sell anything. What a welcome!
Menu: 1
I wonder who buys anything here: their prices are sky high.
Summary
Typical: clean looking place from the outside at the best known street of Amsterdam in front of the Central Station. Only tourists will be caught in this tourist trap.
Service: 1
Found the lady who should be doing the selling but was wandering around. They like fussing because she said I had to buy my prerolled at the counter but that guy said he only sells prerolled per 3. That was all the crap I could take and I left.

Good atmosphere, although the air conditioning blows down towards the tables, which is not exactly conducive to skinning up!
Menu: 7
Good menu
Summary
Good generally, although after a while we did start to feel uncomfortable. The music was too loud too.
Service: 6
After buying a couple of rounds of drinks in a quite short time, we did feel as though we were being cleaned up around.

For the first timer tourist this is a nice place to start your coffeeshop experience, but for the locals it's not that interesting.
Menu: 6
Very commercial selection.
Summary
Very touristy.
Service: 6
The sevice was very average. The tourists seemed to be enjoying themselves, but they just didn't know better.
