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.

“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Greeted with the most incredible views, and food to match, this is a culinary delight. It was Heston Dutch style. Lots of theatre but backed up with the most delicious tasting food. A wonderful experience. Not too pretentious and beautifully done.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Definitively the best restaurant experience ever. Located on the top floor of the Okura hotel you get a spectacular view of Amsterdam. We went for the full 6 dish tasting menu with wine pairing. The menu includes the chef's signature dish ...wow fantastic. Be sure to reserve the whole evening for this experience.

Special thanks to the sommelier mr Vanwittenbergh for making this evening memorable.

Staff is very attentive and helpful, one in our party had a birthday at midnight and they managed to pull off a surprise min-cake at the end.

“Best Meal of my Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Cannot explain how great this meal was. We arrived at our booking time of 7 o'clock, to an applause of Happy Birthday from the most delightful staff, I still haven't managed to discover how the knew it was my birthday! We then sat down to the most amaing aperitifs followed by out of this world menu. Everything was melt in your mouth and the staff put in a great amount of effort in. A MUST!

“EXPENSIVE, but delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

This restaurant is at the top of the Okura Hotel with panoramic views of Amsterdam. We weren't aware that it was going to be a gastronomic event. We were going to cancel a few hours before our dinner, only to find out that we would be charged 100 Euros per person for canceling- hence we kept our reservation. It turned out to be an extraordinary event. The presentations were amazing and the food was fabulous. The only negative besides being Very Expensive is that the meal took over 4 hours- a real dining experience!
