We had a very nice time at Ciel Bleu with a great table by the window to enjoy the view om the city. Service was very good and attentive. We chose the full tasting menu and came 2 amuse bouches and a fantastic petits fours wagon in the end! Very pricy in the end with aperitif, wines and avec but... More

Culinairy Violence, Fantastic, Refined, Food Art, Dining Experience. A little selection of everything that comes up in my mind. The food was amazing, I was and I'm still dazzled. Great flavours, great dishes and a sublime combination of food and wine. The staff was exceptionally good, professional and very friendly.

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 glasses of... 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
