There is not much I can say that will justify how good this restaurant is. I mean really, really, really amazing! We came here for a birthday meal and had the tasting menu with the wine tasting to match. It was absolutely stunning in every conceivable way. From the setting to the staff to of course the food. We were... More

It has been a long time since I've had service this outstanding. Very impressive for my business colleagues. Plenty of space to have a conversation and not be heard by others around us. Great experience.

We had dinner in Ciel Bleu for our wedding anniversary. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The service we experienced was great from the moment you walk thru the door. We had the tasting menu with some small adaptations (we don't like oysters for instance). Every single dish was brilliant - we had the Wagyu option - very tasty. Great... More

We had a lovely evening at Ciel Blue while enjoying the spectacular view of Amsterdam. The food is top notch as is to be expected in these types of restaurants. The crab dish is amazing! The wine is great and off course the waiting staff makes you feel totally pampered. Also compliments to Nino, a young aspiring waiter with a... More

I do not know any better restaurant in the Netherlands with this kind of view. Situated on the 23rd floor (you can see all Amsterdam from your table), has 2 Michelin Stars. I had a dinner there last week, it was again unforgettable. The food is art and the wines are marvelous. Do not forget to visit the bar for... More

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.

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

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.
