“Couldn't believe the lack of service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I know it is an airport bar and therefore don't need to attract return visitors, but really this was bad. I stood about 1.5m from a bar maid who looked like she was processing something on a till. Three times she walked past me, blanking me, despite there being no one else at the bar. There were staff in the kitchen I could see eating and another bar maid at the other end drying glasses. My wife had sat down at a table and as the bar maid walked past her table she asked if she were serving. She expressed surprise and said yes. My wife then pointed to me and said can you serve him, he has been waiting for ages. The bar maid turned around and said, no he hasn't! Pretty poor. If I were a smoker it would be good as they have a smoking room. Otherwise I would avoid if you ever come across it!

“Have a PINT!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Most of this airport can be a drag, but this is an oasis of good beer!!! Opens at 6:30am, and has a damn fine breakfast. Can be a little pricey, but definitely worth a visit. Also has a smoking area, which seems to be few and far between in this airport.

“Murphy's at Schiphol Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Killing time at an airport waiting for a connecting plane is always a bore. Murphy's helped shortening the waiting time offering good beer, good food and last but not least nice staff and a pleasant athmosphere. If you do not know what to do at Schiphol, try Murphy's
