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.
Impeccable service, delicious food with a perfect wine harmonization, beautiful view of the city, unforgettable gastronomic experience. It’s a real two stars Michelin! And more, you guys deserve the third one!
Really worth it came from Brasil and visit you guys.
Muito obrigada! Dank u wel!

After walking around this picturesque village we stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is situated on the bank of the river. There is a nice sitting area outside, but eating inside is just as good. The waitresses are very attentive. Their English is somewhat limited but they try their best. We tried the fish salad, tuna melt, three bruschettas, and fish and chips. Everything was very tasty and the presentation was excellent. Great place for lunch.

Take a minute to catch your breath from today’s hustle and bustle. In the beautiful ‘Ronde Hoep’ polder, between the villages of Amstelveen and Abcoude, where the three rivers "The Bullewijk", "The Holendrecht" and "The Waver" merge, you will find our uniquely situated restaurant. Only ten minutes from Amsterdam and Amstelveen. Looking out over the water and pastures you can see the skyline of Amsterdam Southeast with the Amsterdam Arena, Afas live and the Ziggo Dome. In this rural setting, in one of the most beautiful places in the Netherlands, you can enjoy pure, fresh, traditional international cuisine with Dutch influences, with the Leurs family and their staff. Fine wines, a warm, cosy and romantic atmosphere and attentive, friendly hostesses ensure you have a fantastic experience in a relaxed atmosphere. And always with ample and free parking... De Voetangel. That food... that hospitality... that view!
This family owned restaurant is situated in the country, some 15 minutes from Amsterdam center by car near the Amstel river. We first had drinks outside on the Terrace in the setting sun; just marvellous. Inside we had excellent dishes, everything fresh and tasty. Scallops to start were great and so was the vegetarian salade. Asparagus, fresh fish for main course, very good. The delicious Deserts and excellent wines made it complete. It's really a place worth of visiting when in Amsterdam!

I used to love this place. But something obviously changed: the Ceasar Salad was hardly recognizable as such: one tiny piece of Anchois fish and a smattering of bacon crisps of the size of mouse drops while the sauce was not one that should have put in the Ceasar Salad: some vinegar and oil.
The main course was to be the best of the steak, but it looked like the rib-eye of a rib-eye stake, with a bad piece in it and only weighing between 60-75 grams. The Dom Pedro desert was a glass halfway filled with whipped cream, so that there was hardly anything of the Dom Pedro milkshake in it. My practised eye said they refused to use more ingredients in the food than 10pct of the sales price.
Yes disappointing. They used to do so much better.

Friends invited us and we knew it would be good since they are world travelers first class. We wanted to meet for lunch and all meals were excellent. I enjoyed Chicken salad without bacon, husband the salmon salad, friends the Bali steak salad. Side of fried was good too., and we were given a plate of brown bread when requested.
A relaxed and enjoyable meal for 4.
We will be back!

We went on a Sunday morning and by 1030 it was busy, and by 1130 it was packed. Opens at 10, but Dutch pancakes (pannenkoeken) were not available until 11. You can get coffee, espresso drinks, sodas, juice, and pastry before 11. Order pancakes at the cashier after you go through the buffet to get pastry and drinks. We found the savory pancakes with cheese to be our favorite, but of course the plain with powdered sugar and the sweet/fruity ones were amazing, too. We have 3 smaller kids (9, 8, 6 years-old) and we had leftovers with 3 pancakes, so they are not small!

I was always fond of this restaurant. Small dishes but oh so good. Yesterday, after 3 years, I went overthere again with some friends.
The taste was still good, but one dish was cold and the speed of service was far too slow. It might be, because it was crowdy, because of new personel, because of ill-leave from some key personel, but almost everything that evening was not ok somehow. One waitre made a plate fell on the ground, at least twice 2 waiters were trying to serve both the same things to a table.
The waiter knew this, because we brought us a free dish of fried rice and fruit afterwards and he offered us coffee. Sorry to score them low, but this restaurant is on the more expensive side, so they should keep up with their quality and service.

dutch / French restaurant in a converted gunpowder fatcory
This place seems to be frequented by business folks, as just a few tables on a Thursday evening were occupied by 'casual diners'.
The vegetarian menu, preceded by a rather salty amuse bouche, kicked off with chips of herbs. The dish was well-balanced and enjoyable, just as the buckwheat blini with asparagus. The entremet of delicious truffle risotto was undoubtedly the best part of the menu. The main dish of beet and polenta fries was far less spectacular, but still pleasant. Unfortunately, the dessert of half-melted ice cream with berries was forgettable.
Service was friendly overall, but the waiting time between the courses was inconsistent, and after the third course, exceptionally long up to an hour. A fully-occupied restaurant should not be an excuse to shift the burden of success to its customers.
The bill for two persons including sparkling water and a glass of wine came close to 100 EUR.
It was a fair experience, but not worth a detour.

Went with small group for dinner. This is deconstructed food that is modern and innovative. We had 6 courses and all very good. Chef explains all the ingredients which were tasty and fresh. Great style and worth the trip from Amsterdam yes. Would go again for sure.
