The rating only allows for 5stars instead of 6. The staff is always there to help, but they never hover. The view is to die for, and the food is suburb. If you truly want a fine dining experience when in Amsterdam, this is the...More

The restaurant serves a "5 course" meal, or you can order a la cart. My strong recommendation is the 5 course meal. It feels like a lot more than 5 courses because most courses include more than one dish (e.g. main course was three dishes)....More

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.
