Description: Winkel 43 is located on the Noordermarkt. It's in the heart of the Jewish quarter the ‘Jordaan’, which is known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Because of its privileged location you'll be able to enjoy your coffee or lunch on our terrace on sunny days all year round. Winkel opens early in the morning till late at night. In the area our homemade apple pie became a general well known delicacy. Therefore tasting a slice is considered a must.

First things first, I must admit that I went there on a saturday, which is probably one of the worst things to do. On Saturdays, the Noordermarkt takes place just in front of the Winkel 43. Hence, a huge quantity of people wants to get a peace of apple pie. The queue was standing several meters outside the door (obviously... More

Get off the tourist path and go here. it is a few blocks up the canal from the Anne Frank house. Many locals dine here. The food is terrific. The menu is listed only on a slate board. The beer is cold and the service is friendly and good. The indoor seating is pleasant and there is outdoor seating available.... More

We were in Amsterdam on an over night stay as part of a cruise although we have stayed there many times. Picked up recommendation here on TA and off we went. We sat outdoors in the sunshine, the place was very busy, but we were quickly asked what we wanted by a pleasant waitress..Apple pie of course. The food was... More

Fast, friendly service, although a bit chaotic (which merely added to the charm) and all forgiven with the delicious catfish and lemon risotto and crostini, both of which were delicious. But my goodness were we in for a treat when the apple pie arrived. The locals don't seem to come here for anything else! A great jumping off point to... More

This restaurant was recommended in our Lonely Plant guide and did not disappoint. It is situated in a nice area of the city on a large open square. There is a choice of tables inside and al fresco. Many locals frequent this venue and you can see why. We asked for the menu and the waitress disappeared and returned with... More

We came for the apple pie after reading the glowing reviews left here but as the time was quite late as well, we decided to go for dinner and rounded the day up with the apple pie. The main turned out to be delicious - so whilst the menu and the waiter did not speak English - we did manage... More

Food: have been here many times with visiting friends and familiy. At all times a highlighte and everyone loves the apple pie! Service: can take a while just because the amount of people visiting for the apple pie can get a lot - but usualy fine! Special: Just the apple pie is worth a 5 star rating, never had anything...

I came here for dessert following several trip advisor reviews claiming this is the best apple pie ever. I got the apple pie with whipped cream, it was really nice, the whipped cream has a nice sweet taste and is not from a can, the apples are good quality and the crust is really nice. However while it is a... More

I think this place is mainly known for its apple cake. Visited on a Monday afternoon when the market had just shut down, it was raining, but still full. Decent coffee, apple tart looked less appealing (what's with the small pieces and the whipped cream from a can?) but still tasty. I'd consider 8EURO for a coffee and cake a... More
