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.

Yes, we are lucky enough to travel the world and eat in some of the world's most fantastic restaurants. Ciel Bleu was excellent. We don't drink alcohol and we say it straight out when they ask us if we want champagne - they offered a non- alcoholic champagne alternative. Gold star! Then the sommelier mixed fruit cocktails to match our courses as though we were drinking wine. He came and explained what he was doing with each drink! Why he had added what he added to each mix. Simply stunning. Yes, we are happy to pay for this and if other restaurants offered it, then we would be so happy.

The service was understated and very friendly. The view excellent and the restaurant decor itself was also great ( we often say that restaurants with a view suffer from boring interiors - not this one)

The food was sublime, at a level of taste and experimentation that we expect, but don't always receive.

Overall an excellent start to our holiday in a culinary sense.

second time and once again close to perfection. The staff is very professional and helpfull without having a 'stiff upper lip'. All appetizers and dishes were well worth the two Michelin stars! My mother asked for lactose free courses and everything was altered without losing anything from the fragrances, presentation...
Wines list is extensive, yet not the cheapest one.
Ask a table by the window.

Thank michel l

We choose the 6 course menu + cheese with a corresponding wine menu. The whole thing was very tasty and creative, what you would expect from a two stared restaurant.
The staf was wery helpful and you got the story about every wine and dish. It is one of the best food experiances i ever have had enywhere!!!
It is expensive, but still good value for money if you want a special experiance!
(We stayd at the hotel witch allso is great)!

Dishes are true pieces of art, customers are treated as royals, nice view over town. Especially the dessert & cookietrolley is a wonderful ending to a great night out. However, do not end it at the hotel bar a few metres next to the restaurant; no special servings and pretty annoying company at the bar.
