This place looks nice. We weren't expecting a great meal but places like this usually offer at least some decent burgers, salad, pasta. Not here. Soup from a can, salad and pasta tasted terrible. Nothing specific for kids on the menu. Avoid.

Arriving early for an 8.30 am flight I decided to treat myself to a proper breakfast rather than something from a vending machine , or from a coffee/snack stall . At 12 Euros plus for Coffee and Dutch Breakfast I had expected the quality to be better than breakfast from these much cheaper alternatives - in this I was severely... More

Dear Schiphol Food Management, May I suggest you offer some choice in restaurants besides all the fast food chains? I can't really call this a brasserie. They can't cater for gluten free, even though the menu suggests it does.

Apart from fast food outlet and vending machines, there ain't a lot of choice if you want a decent meal. The restaurant is on the upper terrace, is modern in appearance and clearly has classy aspirations. We found the staff to be a little lax - standing around in pairs/groups chatting while diners waited for service. When interacting with customers... More

I'd eaten many times at the (so-called) Grand Café at Schiphol airport. It was, and is, at best acceptable, if a little overpriced, for what is fairly simple cuisine. I thought I ought to treat myself to something a little more enticing so decided to try the Brasserie. I hadn't realized until I sat down that it's actually the same... More

Service in restaurants and cafes has improved a lot in Amsterdam over the last few years but the service in the Brasserie was old-fashioned slow and rude. We had missed our flight and decided to have an early dinner before the next flight. Despite waiting for a while, we were not shown to a table. It was not very busy... More

I used to travel through AMS regularly and got to know the staff at the brasserie quite well. It was a comfortable, quiet place to eat and enjoy a bottle of wine and some good food on a long stopover. You could choose your table inside (quiet) or outside (like eating in the street). The staff were friendly, considerate and... More

Hard to find a cup of American coffee and you want here. The food was good but as with all airport food and all European food expensive. There is a McDonalds if you are budget conscious.

I spent 30 Euro on a Beer and a 360 Degree Burger in the Brasserie. It sounds maybe expensive, but you get two large burgers, well cooked and seasoned, a side of fries and a nice Belgium beer. A huge meal, well served and more than ample to sort out my 4 hour delay and making sure I was full... More

I've eaten here several times over er several years_ boy, have they dropped their service standard from the previous level Airports attract pressured people on a schedule. Ten minutes to get seated in a restaurant only 50% full, coupled with four attempt to get water with my meal - not reflective of the client's need at all Then, to top... More
