Absolutely terrible service. After waiting at the "Wait here to be seated" sign a waitress carrying an order told me to sit wherever I felt like inside or outside (outside being the balcony overlooking the lower floor of the airport departures lounge) I chose to sit inside, away from the passing throngs of people. I was then completely ignored by... More

This airport is great. Easy to get through customs, shopping and then hop the train when you are ready to go see the city. I find it better every time I visit.

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.
