I know one could say that you would have to say it is special, when you dine in a two stars restaurant. However, this was an exceptional experience. The attention to details in the presentation was simply mind blowing, and the combination of flavours and textures most impressive. It was like listening to a Stradivarius - simply fantastic. If they... More

This review is for service only as food was 10/10 For a 2 Michelin restaurant service was very poor. Nobody welcome us at our arrival and we ended up in the wrong place. Never received th cocktail menu and we were "forced" to get the house cocktail which was average. Didn't like the sexist Waiter which expect only the man... More

Where do I start? A beautiful view, amazing staff and great food, plus super accommodating for my gluten free partner. To top it off the staff were aware of my plans to propose to my then girlfriend and now fiancée and helped record my proposal and used their discretion. A perfect and memorable visit!

We visited during a slow mid week time. Our experience was excellent. The service was impeccable. All the food was first rate. At the top of a hotel, the views of the city were great. If you want a fine dining experience in Amsterdam, this restaurant would be an excellent choice.

We were recommended Ciel Bleu by some friends, and it delivered! We did the tasting menu, and each dish was stunning in its presentation and delicious. I'm sure the menu constantly evolves, but the cannelloni with crab and caviar was one of the best bites I have ever had. The wait staff was perfect - there when you wanted them... More

This is not my first Michelin restaurant in Amsterdam.The restaurant seemed to be very good. A fascinating view from the top of the hotel. Good design. Very handsome waiters. Good food decoration.

Drawn to the tasting menu and views; food was quite good; service had its moments; sits atop a Japanese hotel locked in the 1980s, but don't let that hold you back. Knowledgeable and fun staff, offering great food and wine pairings made for a truly enjoyable and relaxing evening. Adults only...foodies only: makes for a delightful combination!

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.

Neighbourhood 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.
