What a beautiful experience. We arrived at the Hotel Okura and were greeted immediately by a lovely woman from the restaurant. She escorted us up the elevator and sat us in the lounge area. The view was perfect. We sat and had our appetisers and a glass of champagne before heading to our table. I highly recommend to sit in... More

Before heading down the restaurant, also in the hotel. My boyfriend and I came to the bar for a few drinks. They were amazing. Made with delicate flavours and the servers were very hospitable. The views were great - a nice relaxed drink.

As a vegetarian i am always curious how a star restaurant create my cources. At this restaurant it was excellent. The sweet trolley at the end was great. There was friendly staff and off course the great views from the Amsterdam Skyline. I would recommend this restaurant.

Best view in Amsterdam, on the 23 th floor. The food was amazing, the portions to litlle. The staff much to formal for our table, we visited the restaurant with friends to have a nice dinner. They tried to make it in to a busines dinner. Noell, the Sommelier, made the evening with tailor made service and superbe wines. I... More

The restaurant is worthy of its Michelin star rating. It is sophisticated, the food is innovative and delicious, the service is great for Dutch standards. The later has some rough edges at times, eg the brusqueness of taking plates away, but service is far beyond and more formal than one would expect. Staff was very pleasant and exceptionally well informed.... More

Worth every penny and deserves both Michelin stars. Terrific view, exemplary service, and exquisite food. The only two minor things that weren't perfect were that trainee who spilled coffee on me (happens), and the foam on two of the dishes should have been a sear instead. I wish I could add more than 10 pictures.

Exceptional food and service with a beautiful view of Amsterdam through the large windows. We especially appreciated the knowledge and personality of the sommelier! It made the dinner an experience to remember. The large tray of sweets and delicacies presented at the table at the end of the dinner made us walk out with smiles on our faces ;)

Had dinner here with a group of 22 people. At each dish the whole table would go quiet because the amazing food would collectively shut us up. It's truly an experience to dine at Ciel Blue.

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 an international 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.

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
