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.

Great view and amazing drinks. Perfect place to wind down after a long day of sight-seeing. The place is very small and all good spots are usually taken. Still we have a great time sitting at the bar. They have excellent collection of beers and loved some of the Japanese beers I tried. The bartender was very communicative and had... More

My husband took me to Ciel Bleu for my 50th birthday present. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, and the wine pairings were marvelous. Being on the 23rd floor of the Hotel Okra, we enjoyed a lovely sunset view of the city. It was an evening to remember. One polite recommendation:... More

What a feast for our final dinner in Amsterdam. Adorning 2 Michelin stars surely does not come cheap but thats the price you got to pay for execptional. Top cuisine, very creative and refined combined with competent service. Worth every penny. Thank you for a great dinner and what a view over Amsterdam from the 23rd floor!

One of the top meals of our lives!! We are very critical and harsh on restaurants and service and this 2 Michelin star restaurant lives up to and exceeded any expectations we had. From the white glove service to the attentiveness and warmth of the staff to the outstanding presentation we were overwhelmed. This was an experience. All food was... More

I would like to be fair with my review as I left half way due to illness, had to wait five minutes for a lemonade to help settle my stomach after the scallop course which was exquisite but very rich. As for the service it became sloppy and my empty plate sat in front of me for a significant period... More

We were staying in the Hotel Okura and booked the restaurant for my husbands 50th birthday. The dress code was smart but not stuffy, men in open neck shirts and trousers ladies in everything from suits to dresses it was relaxed. Some tables are right next to the window others further into the room but all benefit from the amazing... More

A lifetime food experience. I understand why these guys have two Michelin stars. 1st place is the killer dishes. It's just unbelievably shockingly GREAT. I could never have imagined how the food tasted - it's beyond a dreamland. Goes to show even littlest portions can be sooo satisfying. Other notables are the presentation, the service and the care that is... More
