A really unique coffeeshop in Amsterdam won't find another like this. Check it out. Great menu with some old school strains. Friendly helpful staff and a good drink selection.

What can I say? Amazing! The staff are just lovely and attentive. The seating downstairs is extremely cosy. I would 100% recommend trying the hot chocolate.

Please go downstairs. This coffee shop is a hidden gem. Always very comfortable, good items and nice staff.

Quite possibly the worst coffeeshop I've been to. I was meeting a few friends from a trip who had a head start on me and had already been seated, I walked in to meet them downstairs and was immediately stopped saying I need to buy weed and a drink, I responded by saying I want to make sure my friends are downstairs first... She wouldn't let me go down! I proceeded to buy a coffee, her attitude was awful, huffing and puffing as I didn't get something "easy". When she served it, I asked for some sweetener and she responded with "anything else? bring it down for you??" The lady working with her, grabbed me some and apologized on her behalf.

Great visuals, underwater theme. One of the originals and one of the best.

What a great place to enjoy Amsterdam's finest. The atmosphere is great. The downstairs area is great to lounge around and enjoy some great products. The music they play is really good, gets you in the right mood. Opens from 8 and all the staff are very friendly

The decor was amazing upstairs and downstairs has a nice little seating area (steep steps be careful) the staff are lovely and friendly. The lady who served us was very attentive and more than helpful with advice and things to do. The coffee was the best we had. Highly recommend.

One of my favourite places in Amsterdam, it has an unique design. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Also the staff was very nice. :)

One of my favourite places in the Netherlands and my favourite coffeeshop in Amsterdam. The staff and the stuff are both amazing and they suggest you the best weed of the day. You can also roll a joint and smoke in the coffeeshop. Try securing the table right at the entrance.

Great product and amazing vibes to hang out inside.

Really nice place friendly staff i accidently spilled all the weed when i smelled it but the guy in the bar handled it well had a great time recommend everyone a visit

I think it has one of the best 4€ pre-rolled in Amsterdam. Tabaco doesn't taste old and can see actually green through the paper.

A really unique coffeeshop in Amsterdam won't find another like this. Cool looking under water interior , plenty of tables for guests. Produce itself isn't expensive, can be busy at times. Very chilled timed to be had would recommend spending some time in here

Good stuff, friendly staff!

Ariel Vargas - 1 year ago

Best coffeshop in Amsterdam. Great staff, always super friendly and welcoming. The smoking area downstairs looks like a old submarine. It’s an amazing experience too chill there.The products are also of very good quality and fair price.

Adding for a wasted friend that visited 20 years ago. He still insists that "WhiteDolphin" sold here around 2000 was the best he's had. He remembers the Blue Dolphin in the window.

Rude lady! Told us not to "fall asleep"

Al X - 1 year ago

This is the place to go before starting your day. Been going for 10 years here, top class products, top class services.

Raffaele Conti - 1 year ago

Friendly staff. Nice strains. Great atmosphere. Edibles are delicious

Dave Robertson - 1 year ago

Rude staff, tourist trap. About as bad as it gets for an Amsteddam Coffeeshop, stay away.

John Martin - 2 years ago

Ghetto and rude! Many better options in the area with lowe prices, higher quality and friendly staff

Alexander Hahn - 2 years ago

Attila Kántor - 2 years ago

The problem was the employer took it as personal insult that my pal put up his legs on the sofa (cause of the severe pain in his leg) We told him, but as I said didn't show any slight of understanding. Fokin good goods but never go back and can't recommend cause of the reason I mentioned. Rude and very sensitive staff...

von goff - 2 years ago

I was here 10 years ago and always wanted to come back, the place hasn't changed, it was like walking back in time again. Lovely place, knowledgeable staff and a great place to chill in. Keep the good work up guys, see you in another 10 years.

podgemaster 3000 - 2 years ago

Great place. Comfortable seats, friendly helpful staff, good weed.

Bryony Manley - 2 years ago

Female staff member felt she was either 'above' customers or just straight up didn't want to be there. Asked about cakes, she got one pre-packaged out of the fridge, chucked it on the counter without even looking at us. Pre-rolled products are of questionable quality and decor is tacky... I'm just another person echoing of all their poor reviews.

Joey Campbell - 2 years ago

I was here about two years ago. Then it was great. Friendly staff. Fine selection. Cute downstairs area to smoke. Today I was here. The girl was not friendly. Said we couldn’t smoke there unless we bought drinks which we did. Then we were told that we actually couldn’t smoke there at all because there were three of us. There’s enough places around to not have to deal with all of their politics

Johannes Wold - 2 years ago

Extremely nice location for anyone wishing to have a decent, fresh and smooth bud in Amsterdam. The staff is exceptional, and super friendly. I would recommend going there during daylight as we had the most fun going there then :)

Samantha Jones - 2 years ago

Lots to look at. Downstairs is for tobacco smokers. As the name suggests, very aquatic theme. Upstairs coral reef, downstairs submarine. Friendly staff, kept nice and clean. Good, though limited menu and advice.

nope - 3 years ago

Four of us went in on Tuesday lunchtime. Went to buy a 25€ gram of kief. Was asked to buy at least 3 grams for us to sit in. Ironically would have spent over 100€ had they not been so desperate to take in a few more euros right away. Left without buying. The atmosphere was non existent as there were only 2 people there.. don't visit

Nice small coffee shop worth finding if ever in Amsterdam and on a weed tour of the city. I would recommended the northern lights. If you go in a large group the shop assistant will ask for most of the group to buy weed and drinks

Sandra Dwyer - 3 years ago

Visited last weekend and was blown away by the atmosphere. Staff were lovely and very knowledgeable, drinks were reasonably priced and I love the underwater vibe. Thank you for your great hospitality. Back in January. Xxx

Ale Whatever - 3 years ago

The best, coziest and friendliest Coffee Shop in Amsterdam! The decor is beautifully ocean-inspired, the menu is small but great and the place just screams for a relaxing stay with a fresh orange juice and a joint. Its by-far our favourite. While other Coffee Shops are dull, dark and sometimes dirty, this one is the exact opposite! See ya next year, greetings from Switzerland!

Stef Schoepple - 3 years ago

This place was one of my favourite stops in Amsterdam when I visited in 2017! The atmosphere and decor is beautiful, imaginative, immersive, and relaxing. The strains available there were varied and well priced, and the food and drink offerings, though limited, were tasty and refreshing and surprisingly health-conscious. The staff are friendly, laid back, and extremely helpful. Honestly, even if coffee shops aren't your bag, this place is worth it just to grab a cool drink in a unique and convenient location around the canals.

Felix Mulder - 3 years ago

A little overpriced and they make you buy an expensive drink to go downstairs! but really nice staff none-the-less with cool and unique underwater interior! Try their space cakes!

Kayleigh Stockings - 3 years ago

Love this coffee shop, one of my favs as i love the whole under water theme. It has very good design and detail. Also the staff were very helpful and friendly and it is reasonably priced.

steven webster - 3 years ago

The inside is nice, however I felt very forced into doing anything by the lady, which compared to my other coffee shop experiences, was very different and unpleasant. The weed they sell is very mediocre, but fairly cheap. If you want a good coffee shop experience avoid this. Especially if it is your first experience.

Beáta Csilla Tóth - 3 years ago

Nice, chilling place with very kind personal . There are TVs on the wall which play funny pictures. Separate nontabac and tabac area. Lovely

Jason Green - 3 years ago

I like this spot. Discovered it first in 2010. Good vibes, nice people, good weed. Dig the downstairs chill zone. Cool shirts!

Daniel Palomares - 3 years ago

This groovy establishment is located in a very central part of the city that deserves exploration. The staff were super helpful in setting up a very clean and "orderly" vaporizer, and they showed me and my girlfriend what to do, and volunteered to clean the contraption. I loved that they were so calm and friendly. The vape experience was really easy and fun. I was very inexperienced so this was nice. The walls of this establishment are a colorful artistic rendition of a marvelous underwater/coral reef "scuba world" with dolphins, fish etc. There are refreshments and snacks to be had for very reasonable prices. I had some exotic soda pop. Take your time here. Relax and take it all in... This place is well-known for a reason, which means that they have a good product, staff and management. I'd love to go back.

Akif Mirza - 3 years ago

Used to be a great place, now there's some angry lady behind the counter who simply scares most people away. Went in to have muffins and hot chocolate, only to be told that we can't sit and have them because muffins are for takeaway only (which is why we bought the hot chocolates) but we're still told that we can't sit despite buying drinks. Disgraceful attitude, you literally see people walk in and then walk straight out after being spoken to in such an unprofessional manner. On the plus side, great decor, great muffins.

BURR GURR - 4 years ago

Have visited this place several times and normally receive great service. One of the female members is incredibly rude pretty much told us to buy our weed and get out, because there wasn't room for us, despite there only being 4 of us, and no one else in the upstairs area at the time. Every other visit has been fine, helpful staff with a welcoming attitude.

AVOID Avoid Avoid. Rude staff. Impolite to customers. Just want your money and for you not to hang around. Other shops near by are much nicer and friendlier. The shop decor is just a gimmick to draw you in.

gary naylor - 5 years ago

Very rude staff! If you want visit a place with good vibe and nice people avoid this place! Is a very expensive tourist trap!

ashleigh sell - 5 years ago

Only went in here as loads have recommended there space cakes, and they were delicious ! But the service we got was awful . The lady serving was just rude , and be littling ! We thought we'd have a nice chill out with our space muffin and some smoke. But in the end we just purchased the space cake and left after being made to feel uncomfortable by the worker. GET SOME FRIENDLY STAFF

A Google User - 5 years ago

The staff appeared nice and gave regular customer service but they were very rude. The owner said some comment as I was leaving. Refused to give me a little bit of hot water for my tea which I bought there. Was told I had to puchase again just for more hot water. Interior designs and music/vibe were the highlights otherwise without it, the establishment is run by strict and business minded people.

Jay Eff - 5 years ago

Good shop. You have to pay for weed or hash first then you can buy tea or coffee. Vaporizers for use by requires a ten euro deposit. Yes they are business minded and they have their system. If you don't like it go somewhere else. I like this place a lot.

Craig Hughes - 6 years ago

Great little shop with a good selection of product. Over two floors, tobacco smoking is only permitted downstairs (that includes mixing it), but both floors are beautifully decorated and it was a great place to chill out with a drink for a while

Gayle Martin - 6 years ago

July 2016. They have a couple of cute perky Australian girls working there- they were very nice but too warm an smoky downstairs we were glad to get out of there.

Adam Robinson - 6 years ago

My favourite decorated coffeeshop in Amsterdam! Small menu and a few seats upstairs with volcanos. Buy a drink and go downstairs into the Atlantas themed cosy seating. A must visit spot.

Barry Wright - 6 years ago

Good atmosphere, friendly staff and no overbearing music. Nice and chilled out, just what you want after a hectic day

Charles Floate - 6 years ago

Great with the new rules, the bud is strong but feels more medical than most of the other shops. Drinks were great, limited food range and the best vapes in Dam.

Josh Hubbard - 6 years ago

We were rushed immediately, with the waitress taking no sympathy on the fact we had never set foot in the shop before. She was rude and generally unpleasant. After we were seated, she would increase pressure to finish as soon as possible and it left us unable to relax. There are much better coffee shops

Awesome decor, friendly staff, cute dolphin theme. Excellent place

Mario Atta - 6 years ago

one of the most beautiful of amsterdam .. unsurpassed staff !!!!!!

Vijay N. Dixit - 6 years ago

There is a clear nexus between hotels, restaurants and coffee shops. I saw "Apollo" spring up in each place I was recommended in a chain of destinations. Let's come to the point. Dolphin has a menu and unhelpful girls manning the sales they did not seem to have any idea of the experience their goods give, and are *clearly incompetent* in helping, or willingness to help. Goto "The Noon", it is not too far away from this, and the guys at "the noon", they know the things they sell.

Dan Alexandru Pod - 7 years ago

Personally, it's the first coffee shop I've been in when I first Visited Amsterdam. Loved it and every time I've visited since I kept bringing friends there. It's now all my friend's special little coffee shop. OK - now for the fun part: I can recommend the Northern Lights for a wake n' bake. Tried the Diesel and White Dolphin - not bad. However my weed of choice this summer was their Tesla weed. Now I just need the car that goes with it :P
