This is the best (and the only?) panoramic view of Amsterdam! It's located right near the main shopping street and is very easy and quick to find. It offers a 360degrees view of the city as opposed to the library of the Hilton sky lounge that are farther away and show a skyline view (also worth a visit). The restaurant... More

I am quite the regular to this place every time I visit Amsterdam. I love the coffee, I love the food and I absolutely love the 360 degree view! Their Baguettes are worth a try, especially the Buffalo mozzarella with tomato, basil and olive oil... Can't wait to visit this place yet again!

A great place to stop or enjoy the end of the day with a nice view of part of the city and take a small meal or a hot drink! Lounge ambiance!

We had morning coffee and apple pie here - both very nice. We found the service to be very good and having visited mostly historic and older eateries during our stay, it made a nice change to go somewhere modern light and airy. You get a good view of the Amsterdam rooftops so it is well worth a visit.

From my visit to Blue, the only positive was the view (all the way on top the shopping complex) which was stunning - it was a good time to kick back, have a drink and take in Amsterdam from that high appreciating the amazing views. However and unfortunately, that's all there is to it - the waiters and the service... More

Sitting on top of the Kelvertoren shopping centre in the heart of Amsterdam is Blue café. Worth the trip up in the elevator for the 360 degree view of the city rooftops.

Went to blue because of the views over the rooftops, and whilst we enjoyed the views, had a light lunch as well. I feared that Blue may be a bit soulless, bland and commercial as it is situated at the top of a bland, could be in any city/ country, but was pleasantly surprised that the food was good, the...
