Favourite coffeeshop from my trip!! Super friendly staff and very knowledgeable about their menu and products. Good music, good vibes, very spacious and a coffee shop that isn't bursting with rowdy groups. Flower was incredible from low priced to premium bud was all really good from this shop couldn't recommend more (Thanks for the umbrella!)

My friends and I went into the shop and the lady just looked at us and said ‘you no’ and to the people behind us ‘you yes’. Really rude and this ruined it for us. She waved us out and that was it.

Nice little quiet coffee shop with probably the best coffee. Place was nice and staff were friendly. Certainly the place for the more mature smoker as opposed to young people in groups.

Awful, so rude and aggressive. Actually a little scary, I’ve been living here for years and never had such a negative experience. Please avoid for you safety.

Te worst coffee shop in Amsterdam.
The owner was a really impolite. I do not recommend coming here for any reason. You have a lot of options for smoking without problems in this city, so, avoid Barraka.

The owner was really nice, a bit quiet but he was just vibing out to the tunes, the flower, was labelled under a mud/strong and it was a haze which usually gives me a bad head but this was was very very nice, there was a cat that came and sat with us, in all was very nice and chill

Super rude old guy with glasses. I decided to speak in English since I was with friends that didn’t understand Dutch. He thought I wouldn’t understand Dutch and because he was having a hard time understanding me and I was taking my time choosing, he became impatient and said I was not normal (In Dutch) out loud. Since politeness was not a virtue from his side and according to the reviews, not the first time, I decided to laugh it off and buy the pre rolled ones. And btw it was mainly just tobacco. So never again. Don’t come here.

I would give zero stars!!! Don’t buy there it’s a scam!!
We bought 3 spacecakes and there should be 0.4 grams in there but they didn’t even had an effect. They were very unfriendly and didn’t even explain what’s really in there. It’s a scam be careful.

Bought a pre rolled joint for €6 thinking it was a fair price. As soon as I bought it he said we had to leave and couldn't smoke in there. When I then came to smoke the joint it looked and smelt like it was full of tobacco. I waited till I got back and tore it open and it was literally just pure tobacco (no exaggeration). Total rip off merchant and would definitely never visit again.

DO NOT GO HERE!!!
Terribly terribly rude owner. wouldn’t allow us to be at his premises unless we bought a significant amount of weed.
He Even forced the people in our group that dont smoke to buy weed from him, the tea and coffee they hadn’t purchased apparently wasn’t enough to earn them a seat. Taking Advantage of tourists, all while being extreme rude to everyone.
DO NOT GO HERE!!

The owner told us that he will not serve us because we were not sure what we wanted to drink and we were choosing the drinks for too long and that he couldn’t care, there was no one in the line behind us as well. We didn’t do or say anything inappropriate, we just took a bit longer to order. Absolutely bad experience, don’t go here, there are plenty of other coffees nearby where they appreciate clients.

I would never go there again. If you take a photo for review, the rude owner will kick you out and humiliate you publicly. And the coffee was just so so. Not worth the price and horrible experience. Stay away.

A nice older gentleman greeted us at the door and welcomed us in. I had high hopes and good vibes. Unfortunately, we had Such a terrible experience here. Our group went in to find if there was room (6 of us) and we were about to go down from the lounge and purchase after settling and arriving moments ago. The female staff member did not take kindly to us from the start (not even a group of Americans). She rudely told us that we had to buy something, of which I immediately smiled and obliged and she still had an awful attitude. A few of us made purchases. About 15 minutes later, she returned to kick us out for absolutely no reason, because we “weren’t buying anything and would we behave this way in our own country?”. She said we were preventing them from making money. She said there were other groups waiting for our spots because we were “taking up all the space”. Offput and very confused, we kindly complied and left… and there were definitely no groups waiting for our spot…. Literally no one. Maybe she was having a bad day, but I’d never had someone behave so ugly.
Overall, just a very negative experience which has never happened to me in Amsterdam before now. I hope the owner knows that this employee will lose them money, and she absolutely did. For being in a very touristy area, you’re going to need tolerant and polite employees and we are completely reasonable people….
Prices were reasonable I thought, but when you have so many great options In the area, think twice about going here if you don’t want to be treated poorly. I recommend purchasing & leaving if you associate with the business at all. I will not be returning and will strongly discourage any others from visiting.
Edit: I see now there are many reviews about a rude and unwelcoming female employee here, and that hasn’t changed as of this review. Wanted to mention that the music was upbeat and enjoyable for those curious.

Barraka coffeshop is located on Gravenstraat (Grave Street), a small side street near Dam Square. The street is closed to automobiles, though it is heavy in foot traffic given its proximity to key Amsterdam attractions. One end of this street leads to De Nieuwe Kerk. This translates as The New Church. Contrary to its name, this is a famous and old church-turned-museum, concert, and exhibition hall. At the other end of this street is Nieuwendijk (New Dike), a busy section of the city’s most popular shopping district.

This is my most favourite place to be in the world! An absolute gem in the centre of Dam, great atmosphere that is filled with intention and love. The owner was super friendly and attended to us at every given moment. I found myself constantly wanting to be there to soak up the rich culture and soul soothing reggae, all encapsulated in one space. I've officially made it my getaway spot and will be returning at least twice a year. Thank you Hans for making us feel at home!

Great little gem off of Dam square, great food, super friendly staff, and affordable. Not the best bud, but still respectable and the pancakes more than make up for that.

Good location right by dam sq. All the weed smelled the same, like freshly cut grass. When challenged on it the dealer agreed they all smell the same but he doesn’t smoke so he doesn’t know. Didn’t purchase.

Best coffee shop! Went with mum and it was our favourite spot. Super friendly and helpful- accommodating too when we had missed our flight and returned quite late!
