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 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.

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!

Very small very cosy and very delicious treat for my wifes 40th birthday. Enjoyed everything we ate and drank. Reasonably priced. Booking essential. I had scallops to start and venison main. Fabulous. My wife had scallops and sea bass. Same review. Pre-drinks and a bottle of prosecco. €113 in total. A treat for us but, well worth it. The service matched the food. Top notch. Thank you

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!

dutch / French restaurant in a converted gunpowder fatcory

Reviewed By Venneper - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

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.

5 rounds of food, 4 dishes per round, great way to try lots of food. I'm allergic to seafood and the staff provided me my own card with all seafood lines struck through so I couldn't accidentally order the wrong thing.
