Used this coffeeshop most of my life when Johnson had it. Asked for Afghanistan Black which is 8.50 a gram. The stupid sod tried to sell me gmc isolator weed at 99 € a gram. So I walked out. Nice staff tho, shame he tried to rip me off 91 euros off 1 deal. No. Wonder they trying to be friendly. Stay well away from this shop it was better when El Gaupo staff work there. They were more polite, helpful and had better weed. That weed is being portrayed as American. It's not at all. It Spanish crap. Actually treated me like I was a newb. I've been in that shop more than all them staff so no more Terps Army for me. Bring back El Gaupo. Staff much better Johnson.

Has some good stuff. I got 4 grams of Blue Berry for 23€ but the best they serve is Sleaze, it's a LA Confidential and Sour Diesel cross only 11€ a grams. Sour Diesel and LA Confidential are becoming scarce in Amsterdam so to see this made my trip! There's another little shop closer to the RLD that has Sour Diesel but they charge 25 a gram, it is good tho, it's the only shop that had it, they had good Big Bhudda Cheese too. Anyway back to El Guapo, shop is quite small but it's definitely a good stop for some good grade.

Now under new ownership and management run by a decent guy (goes by JJ) who talked no sh*t and knew was he was talking about. Sold me the best Amnesia Haze I've had in the Dam, put Amnesia's own to shame! Well worth a visit. He really needs a more recent review.

A small coffeeshop that left a lasting impression. Nice guy serving in there. Nice menu. Powerplant in there smelled and smoke so amazingly. It was a very nice place to sit and chill out. Music was good and different and the interior quite friendly to the stoned eyes. A must visit place in my opinion for the Powerplant and service alone. Great place

Quite a small place but we were greeted by a friendly man who upon request pointed out the menu, remember buying a gram of Bubblegum and a gram of Diamond hash to which I promptly rolled up and got comfortable ready to spark up, halfway down the joint I started feeling it and man was it good. After 6or 7 joints I was mashed! Would recommend this coffeeshop to anyone as all the puff me and my mates bought was pucca.

Located down an alley type of street, Nieuw Nieuwstraat, just South of Centraal Station off of Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. Actually a little difficult to find, but there is a Bob Marley flag flying out front to guide you in. A very small place, the interior is done in mosaics, the tables, floor, and walls, all covered in elaborate designs. They were playing some really good hip hop music, forget who now, comfortable seating, I shared my booth with a friendly cat, it all made for a very nice and chilled ambiance. Their menu was very good, with Bubblegum being what we chose, great stuff. I also got a pre-rolled mix joint for 2.50 euro, it was nice and strong. The staff was very friendly, I asked for a Chocomel and the guy said, "Of course" and then he asked me if I wanted a glass with it or not, great service. They have this interesting display of joints, really crazy ones, huge cones, some that are 6 joints combined into one that everyone can smoke on at the same time, not sure if they sell these, but worth asking. Very cool little place, good buds, friendly atmosphere, check it out if you can find it.

Sweet decor, nice tunes and the pre-rolled joints are definitely worth their money. The dude behind the bar was pretty friendly and welcoming, which was cool. Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely mad lighting effects, played good hip hop, sold good weed at a reasonable price. What more could you want.

My friends, this place is the only place you need to go. I highly recommend the El Guapo special or the Super Crystal, both are beautiful specimens of Amsterdam marijuana. We later talked to another coffee shop owner who said that El Guapo was one of the best coffee shops in Amsterdam, and that High Times Magazine rated it 2nd best coffee shop. If you get the chance you need to visit this little place.
