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.

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 lovely and a very large portion. When I asked for the bill the waitress spoke Dutch when I said English please she apologised can't believe how polite she was. Anyway well worth a visit as it also feels local rather than too touristy, with families about walking dogs or pushing push chairs and children playing. Will visit again.

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 explore Jordaan.

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 the blackboard from near the bar - we had to laugh!
It was all in Dutch but she translated and we tucked into the salmon on a sweet potato base and my wife had the pancake option; both were delicious.
Not a huge choice of food but what is on offer is of the highest quality.

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 to order fairly nice fish dishes which was melt in your mouth delicious.

However the apple pie which followed was the star of the meal. Comes with a very light cream and the pie itself was not too sweet - just right in fact. Worth coming if only just for the apple pie in fact but the delicious main meals were an added bonus.

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 else - and apple pie is the product this place is famous for!
