As usual excellent food, exquisite balance of tastes, textures, aromas. Attention to detail, professional crew. Dietary requirements well executed. The wine arrangement, as it is called, is excellent. We had a wonderful evening.

Absolute top quality food. The chef signature dish - the crab roll in a wrap of black celeriac that resembles nori - is simply superb, definitely my favourite of the evening. Took 3 hours for an 8 course menu, but felt very comfortably paced. Most...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.
