Description: 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 a unique take on French 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.

Ciel Bleu has 2 michelin stars and that raises some expectations. Those were met, in the food department, the service and sadly the price too. The only criticism I can think of that the wines failed to make a lasting impression on me (though they were good, but not spectacular) As an aperitif, there is choice from the champagne bar,...

Everything makes sense here; the food, the wines, the service. All top of the bill. Perfection is what they aim for, perfection is what you get; in every single detail. The dish that definitely stood out was the kings crab, words cannot describe: smooth and sweet, crunchy and salt, complex yet in perfect harmony. The interior is somewhat plain; the... More

We've eaten at a few places of this level, and Ciel Bleu has to be one of the best ever. This was their first day back from their summer break. We had a hiccup at the start: we were left waiting half an hour between finishing our aperitif and being able to order wine to go with our meal. As... More

I chose this restaurant for our 5th wedding anniversary as a surprise dinner for my lovely wife. And a wise choice it was. We were assigned one of the best tables, with a corner location enjoying double view. We were treated with multiple little bites additional to our chosen menu. Throughout the experience we were accompanied by Mr Pasquinel Kolk... More

The chef lacked imagination for a vegetarian meal. ive had an 8 course meal with every dish having a differnet signature. Though i cannot complain overly. IT was a pleasant experience.

We just came back of our dinner at Ciel Bleu and it was SPECTACULAR! We have eaten there last year when we visited Amsterdam at remembered it was an amazing restaurant. When we came to eat today we was pretty sure that it won't be as good as we remembered it to be, but they topped that dinner. Amazing products,... More
