If you’re going to wind up with time to kill at Schiphol Airport waiting for return Amsterdam flights, then take the opportunity to explore the surrounding area of the city and enjoy a farewell meal in one of its mouth-wateringly exciting restaurants just a hop, skip and a jump from the departure gate.
These are just a few of our favourites:
1) Thai from Sky
There’s no need to book at this luxury Thai restaurant because the friendly owners will always make a space for visitors to Amsterdam.
2) Restaurant Blauw Amsterdam
Blauw is widely acclaimed as the best Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam and it’s so stylish, it’s even been named in the 2011 Louis Vuitton City Guide as an edgy and uber-trendy place to dine.
3) Bubbles Seafood & Wine Bar
You don’t have to leave the airport to experience the gastronomic delights of Bubbles Seafood & Wine Bar. Once you’re through security, relax and unwind with some indulgent bubbly and fresh seafood which has earned the diner a nomination as one of the best airport bars in the world.
4) Het Bosch
Enjoy a meal overlooking the waterfront at this charming French restaurant on the marina where the wine list is impressive and the a la carte cuisine, which has a slight Asian influence, is outstanding.
Mediterranean dishes to die for are the norm at this romantic Italian restaurant with breathtaking views of Amsterdam. Gustavino’s cuisine is organic and the establishment even has its own wine library. It’s perfect for couples looking to end their vacation on an intimate note.
