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.

“A Night To Remember”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Booked a table for two to celebrate two special occasions on a trip to Amsterdam and we were treated to an amazing evening we will remember for a long time. The eight course tasting menu was simply superb; every course service wowed both in terms of flavours and textures and wonderful, imaginative presentation. The service was incredible and combined genuine warmth and friendliness with meticulous attention to detail.

“The most amazing food”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

The tasting menu is a very special experience, the most brilliant flavours and the service to accompany is exceptional. It is top end on price but worth it.

“memorable experience”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

was not only an excellent meal but an exploration into the world of taste and flavors, expertly slowly told through the changing of the aromas and flavors, refined presentation, great service and atmosphere, expensive but worth it.

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Went there to celebrate a birthday. Were lucky and got a table at a window, with nice views. We had the menu degustation with the wine menu.
Service is top class. A perfect blend of being polite in a formal way and friendly as well. Considering the lousy reputation Amsterdam has for service, this was a nice surprise.
Food was very good and well presented, although maybe i was expecting just a bit more. Wine menu good, some wines excellent, some with completely new tastes to me and a few more ordinary.
Spent 4 1/2 hours dining and everything to our satisfaction. Not cheap of course, but thought it well worth the money and will definitely go again
