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

We were two good friends visiting Ciel Bleu in November 2016. Among its attractions was the fact that it was open on a Monday. We started out in the bar next to the restaurant. Nice bar, but the seating is such that you sit on leather seat with your back against the windows for the main bar, which is a... More

I hesitated for some time in doing a review of this restaurant. As the score of each restaurant on tripadvisor is made through the average ratings of their customers, and assuming the ratings are not biased, it is fair to assume that the score will be a truethful reflection of the quality that we can expect in a given restaurant....

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.
