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.

Superb food but beware of the aperitives!

Food at Le Ciel Bleu is superb, there can be no doubt about that. We took the 6 course menu and enjoyed every dish. However, they sure take their time: we started dinner at 7:30pm and finished well after midnight. A bit too long for us. The check was a bit of an unpleasant surprise, as the two... read more

Impeccable service and gorgeous, creative dishes. We loved the tasting menu. Every dish clearly took a tremendous amount of thought and effort and each was tremendously creative. The view beautiful at night. Quiet and intimate in a modern setting. One word to the wise-- if having the tasting menu leave loads of time. We had six courses and were there... More

If you read tripadvisor to see if you should eat somewhere, this place isn't for you. This is a place where money isn't considered. My wife and I got the "cheaper" option for dining and it still came out to 400 euros. If you want the full experience, expect about 300 euros a person. Sorry, no food is worth that,... More

Booked this restaurant because we wanted a great dining experience on our visit to Amsterdam. It was better than we had anticipated - all the tables were placed comfortably apart and were given great views of the city. Decor unexceptional but comfortable. Great cocktails and good wine choices from sommelier. Staff were very professional but human and with humour. The... More

We really felt special with the attentive and open way in which the staff served us. The staff has a great knowledge of the products, specially Berber and Jord who both took great care of us.

Well, you don't get two Michelin stars without wonderful, creative food and excellent service. It was all quite good, The other 2* restaurant in Amsterdam is Aan de Poel which was much less expensive and more casual. This is definitely an elegant restaurant and quite expensive. But you only live once!
