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.

Intimate and high end. Beautiful views of Amsterdam at night. Great spot to either begin or end your evening, especially if you are staying at the Okura.

Was in Amsterdam for my Birthday and I wanted a special place for my birthday. We made a reservation the day before because they do book up fast. When we arrived every one of the staff wished me a happy birthday. I thought that was pretty nice of them. The view, the staff, the restaurant, the amazing food and absolute... More

Outstanding food and excellent wine pairings as well. Pricey but worth every cent. Great views from its 23rd storey position. This is quite close to "as good as it gets"!

The food was very good, but nothing to drop everything for. We had someone at the table who was allergic to shellfish and the first thing that comes out was a app with shellfish... there are many better ways to spend 500 dollars as a couple. So if you have money to burn then go for it...

The view from the restaurant, overall ambience and service was second to none, at least for all the Michelin star restaurants Ive been to so far. I definitely highly recommend that you must must must go to this restaurant if you're in Amsterdam. The price point was very reasonable as well. The only reason I'm not giving it full rating...

Our hotel staff booked us into this beautiful restaurant where the theatre of dining is well matched with wonderful food. The wait staff were delightful and charming, not stiff, rather engaging and friendly. The food was remarkable with an astonishing wine list. The cheese cart is superb, and they had matched cheeses to the regions of the Tour de France,... More

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
