Handy sitdown/takeaway in the public part of Schiphol Airport

La Place is very central in the public Central Plaza / Arrivals level part of Schiphol airport. It is essentially a coffee shop / petit restaurant with a buffet and a service part. Quality of the Cappuccinos is quite good. At an airport you can expect to pay somewhat elevated prices.

At the same meal we had two totally different experiences. My husband and son got the hamburger and fries which they thought were quite good. My daughter in law and I got food made fresh at the wok station. I had chicken and rice that was so heavily spiced I could not eat it (and I like India and Chinese... More

I can't help it, I just LOVE the La Place restaurants ! Even this one, at Schiphol's super busy Arrivals Hall, did not disappoint. Food stations are set up beautifully, foods look simply delicious. I have to admit that I agree with some of the comments others made here about the long wait for a meal, and sometimes your order... More

This was possibly one of the worst places I have eaten. To start with myself and a colleague both ordered a meal from the wok counter. We asked for the beef with noodles and a prawn with noodles. I paid for these plus some drinks and we sat in the outdoor area. We were told 20 mins and call back... More

All the La Place I have been in are perfect for a quick meal with excellent quality food. Lots of vegetarian diversity, pairing with meat and fish. All kinds of drinks.

I usually enjoy eating at La Place as they have a good selection of fresh tasty food at a reasonable price for an airport. However, I have rated them poorly due to the service we received one evening prior to our flight. We ordered two pizzas and were told they would be ready within 15 minutes by the duty manager....

This cafe specialises in fresh produce in generous portions. Just pick up a tray and pick what you fancy (coffee is at the cash register). I can personally recommend the baguettes (especially one combining pork with BBQ sauce)and the smoothies.

Take your time and walk the whole food area to get a sense of how things are done. To a traveler that has not seen this type of restaurant, it can be confusing. The options are so plentiful that it makes dining enjoyable. WiFi is provided. Guaranteed there is nothing to lose stopping here.

This has a very large outlet inside Schipol Place as well as a take-away section. You walk around the outlet and your senses are bombarded with food being cooked all around you. Signs are only in Dutch (which I guess is understandable if a little hard to follow) and the choice is quite varied. I ended up with Chicken and... More
