The setting and ambience was great but might be a little intimidating for younger diners. The food was lovely although I thought the modernity had somewhat clouded the true Dutch-taste/style. The Sommelier was absolutely entertaining and engaging. Bravo! Did not see any of the 2...More

I’ve never spent so much money to feel hungry. The view is great, the service is great, and the presentation is fantastic. The bread, handmade butter, and desert, were fantastic. But beyond that there was a lot more show in this place than substance. 3...More

With 2 Michelin Stars in this restaurant you can expect very exclusive food and service I was here with some very important business guests and certainly the food attention and wine made it a successful diner! Loved the food and how it was presented!

One of Amsterdam's most remarkable restaurants, situated on the 23rd floor of Hotel Okura Amsterdam, the Ciel Bleu Restaurant has been awarded two Michelin stars and, much like the adjacent Twenty Third Bar, offers a stunning panoramic view of Amsterdam's city centre. This breathtaking vista and the luxurious design, together with the personal hospitality, all combine to create a unique atmosphere. The Ciel Bleu Restaurant's ambitious kitchen staff serve an international cuisine, prepared with seasonal products and characterised by its innovation. The Sommelier's professionalism and close cooperation with Executive Chef and Manager Onno Kokmeijer results in a perfect harmony between wine and food. The Ciel Bleu Restaurant also offers three luxurious private areas: the Starlight Room, the Salon Panoramique, and the Chef's Table in the restaurant's kitchen.
