We had a lovely evening at Ciel Blue while enjoying the spectacular view of Amsterdam. The food is top notch as is to be expected in these types of restaurants. The crab dish is amazing! The wine is great and off course the waiting staff makes you feel totally pampered. Also compliments to Nino, a young aspiring waiter with a... More

I do not know any better restaurant in the Netherlands with this kind of view. Situated on the 23rd floor (you can see all Amsterdam from your table), has 2 Michelin Stars. I had a dinner there last week, it was again unforgettable. The food is art and the wines are marvelous. Do not forget to visit the bar for... More

We had a fantastic evening, with great food, good wine recommendations and a lovely view over Amsterdam. It was a very nice evening to remember. Out of the 9 courses there were 4 very good ones and 2 were extraordinarily good. We really enjoyed the evening and for a special occasion we will come back.

This the third time we had dinner is this lovely penthouse restaurant on the top floor. Briljant views! The interior is complete new. They had a make-over. The same designer who design it last time did the sublime job. Just like the kitchen staff. What a night! Give this place 3 stars please!!! We will be back soon.

The restaurant is located on the top floor of the Okura Hotel and has a magnificent view of the city. Your dining experience starts with Champagne at the window to take in the view. You are served small bites and given time to relax and get yourself prepared for a memorable dining experience. You are then shown to your table,... More

Unfortunately would not recommend this restaurant, was served raw sea bass. Didn't make a scene if it at the time, left a lot of the dish and the waiter returned saying the chef apologised and it shouldn't have happened. Was told it would be resolved for us but no amends were made, we were even charged for the course! Overall... More

Set in a fantastic looking hotel with stunning views from the 23rd floor, this is definitely somewhere I would return. We went for the full menu with the wine and left fully satisfied. The setting, service, and most importantly the food and drink were all excellent. I wasn't too sure about the amuse bouche, but from there on in it... More

We had a business dinner there. The table setup is movie-style with personal S&P, butter and olive oil jars to savour with one's bread (that changes through the meal for the perfect match between dish and bread!). I opted for the fish entree, a creamy poached bar on white truffle mousse. The chocolate dessert with old tequila was also excellent.

This is a fine example of a top property not letting success go their heads. What was perfect before is now even more spectacular. The elegant dining room has been renovated and, according to chef Onno, the menu supercharged with more flavors and even more sumptuous offerings. Atmosphere is relaxed and unintimidating, but first timers should familiarize themselves with the... More

I meant to write this review months ago. I am not normally one to photograph my food, but the presentation was so beautiful that I snapped photos of several courses. It tasted wonderful too. Everyone was very nice and accommodating (they did a fantastic job swapping in crab during one course when they found out that I did not like... More

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.
