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.

Me and my fiance really enjoyed this cafe. It is very small, but the outdoor seating is lovely and the apple pie is the best I have ever had. A definite afternoon treat!

Loved this restaurant. Had the Salmon and apple pie. My wife had the mint tea and loved it. This restaurant is a must if coming to Amsterdam.

We tried to eat here last night but it was raining and it was too crowded. Tonight weather was great. We set outside and the service was great. The salmon with dill sauce excellent and as you read all the other reviews the apple cake is a must order. Reasonably priced. Trip Advisor thanks for the recommendation.

Winkel is located in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam and has a great place to sit outside while you eat. I was not really hungry when I stopped there but was attracted to the setting and especially by the menu which seemed to offer some interesting and unusual choices. I ended up ordering a Surinamese fish soup and a salad with lots of vegetables. The soup was quite good (especially for the price!), but the salad was uninspiring. At a time of year with lots of fresh vegetables at hand, they prepared this salad with a heavy mayonnaise dressing and what seemed to be a mix of vegetables that included pickled vegetables. For me, pickled vegetables may be a good choice in winter months when fresh vegetables are less available, but in June this should not be allowed! And the mayonnaise dressing did not add any taste or value! They are supposedly known for their apple cake, which you can find a lot in this neighborhood and other parts of Amsterdam. I probably should not have been lured by the interesting choices on the menu and should have just taken an apple cake instead. Up to you to try this place out, but I'd recommend having drinks and sweets, though the soup was good. The prices are also very reasonable for everything.

Visited with my girlfriend for breakfast on a beautiful morning in July. Lots of tables outside but it was so busy that we still had to wait a while for a space. Only one server for our very busy area and she was clearly struggling, so it took a while to order our food. The tables are without shade, which was a shame on this very hot day. The food is very good value generally, and the apple cake (for which they're rightly famous) is divine. Well worth the visit if only for a slice.
