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

Great service, excellent food, small but interesting wine list. Yes it's pricey but have you eaten in any restaurants in central Amsterdam??? OK, you need to have a bit of time to spare (I had 2 hours so no problem. I had tomoto soup and black linguine with seafood - quality good as any decent fish restaurant and similar price.... More
