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.

This is a great restaurant and a must visit in Amsterdam if you want a really special experience. We had the 7 course menu with wine package and the whole meal was just perfect. The taste was spectacular, the service was great and all in all we had a perfect evening. Thank you from four very satisfied Norwegians.

I think this restaurant does deserve its title as the best in Amsterdam. The view is certainly spectacular. My aversion to restaurants that only serve degustation meals is not an issue here. They have an a la carte menu along side the readily modified degustation choices. We elected to have 4 courses. Although we were concerned about the foie gras... More

First of all: The view from the restaurant at the top floor at the Hotel Okura is breathtaking. Unfortunately, this view is also the best part of the visit in the Ciel Bleu. The dining room is large and comfortable with plenty of space between the tables. The service has knowledge and keeps you informed of all details regarding wines... More

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
