The ambience and decor maybe older rather than modern or funky, but it's warm, classy and inviting. Service is very professional and attentive. Menu is generally good traditional food rather than trendy modern stuff like foam everything! Food is well presented and cooked with attention. A great surprise was the complimentary spinach soup starter, which was delicious! Overall, very welcoming... More

Horrible....this restaurant does not look like they advertise it...after an horrible elevator ride you arrive to a stuffy restaurant where the decoration did not change since the last century! the staff is somewhat "no there" and not for the customer...the food is with no special, no taste, not really looking fresh...if a local wants to invite there...run the other way!

On a mild evening, we had a table on the terrace on the 7th floor and ordered a menu. We selected the formule with 4 dishes and the selection of wines. With the small things to eat between the main dishes we spent a wonderful time experiencing a lot of flavors. the service is perfect and discussing with the sommelier... More

Everything about this restaurant is simply wonderful. The food, the service, attention to details, it is hard to describe by words, you just have to taste it :) Do not let yourself be distracted by the fact that it is located in the hotel - you simply walk through the amazing lobby to the lift and thats it. As a... More

I once went here with a friend for lunch. The staff warmly accommodated us and served us a free small cup of red beet soup which tasted awesome! We then ordered a 13-euro dish for each of us, and had some dessert for two. Everything tasted great, but sadly I had a stomach ache afterwards and had to go to... More

We had a lovely dinner at Le Ciel The starters and the main courses were just wonderful; one of the best meals we have ever had. The atmosphere is great and the service is perfect; somebody is there when you need them, but they are not hovering around you. The place is very expensive but worth it; if you want... More

We booked this for our anniversary dinner after we strangely struggled to find places that were open on a Saturday night. The decor is very opulent and a little kitsche, however, the food and service were superb, particularly the wagyu beef. They were also very sweet and surprised us with a free anniversary dessert. Very expensive and wine was outrageous... More

Loved the place! Excellent food, friendly staff and the best for me.... we could stay there with our 4 years old child, the staff really special with him and he really enjoyed food. I will come back for sure.

From the warm greeting to the final departure Le Ciel is happy to see you. The service is professional, helpful and unobtrusive, yet welcoming and warm throughout. The food is spectacular. My wife started with a beautiful shrimp appetizer followed by a Lobster and Veal dish that she adored. I started with a duck terrine with caviar and had the... More
