Cafe Blue is one of the places I often bring or meet people who aren't as familiar with the center of Amsterdam. It is a few stories higher than the surrounding buildings, and offers 360 degree sweeping views of the city. The elevator ride from street level takes you far enough off the beaten path that you can usually find... More

For a large group a bit less. We had a company Christmas party here. The food is excellent and the view is just WOW. Unfortunately the kitchen was unable to provide 60 meals at the same time so our dinner was a bit chaotic. The party afterwards was excellent and the staff put up with all our strange, ugly Christmas... More

We ate here last Sunday lunchtime and were brought here by a friend who lives in the city. Built on top of a shopping mall hidden away behind the ancient facades of the city architecture, a lift whisks you up to a glass box up on the rooftop with views over the city. Beautiful - even in drizzle! The food... More

First time I came to this cafe nearly two years ago and nothing is changed when I came for the second time, this year. Nice place to hangout, but like other cafes in Europe, there's limited space and this place is packed at any time. Helpful staff, the food and the price was OK. Get to the top near the... More

Its a bit tricky to find but basically you walk to the end of kalverstraat nearest the muntplein. Look out for the H&M sign on the front of the Kalvertoren shopping centre. Go up the escalators, walk through the shopfloor to the middle of the shopping centre and take the glass lift up to Blue. We experienced a bit of... More

Great views over Amsterdam and wonderful food! Entrance might be hard to find, it's within a small shopping center.

Restaurant/bar in middle of shopping center, We went on a Saturday and even though crowded there was always someone leaving so a seating is not a problem and all have view of the city. Many just walk around and take elevator back down without eating or drinking. Amazingly , doesn't really interfere with service. Staff is apparently used to it... More

So this is a restaurant / cafe / bar on top of what I considered to be a pretty average shopping centre in a very central location. That said, it's a fair way above the shopping centre, so the view is ok, but without meaning to be unkind to a lovely city, it's just not high enough to be a... More
