In the kitchen of the Michelin-starred restaurant, a clear hierarchy is maintained, and everyone has a defined role. But if any deviation is noticed, everyone is encouraged to give feedback.

What do the critics say?

THE WORLDS 50 BEST

 “Ciel Blue is set on the 23rd floor of Amsterdam’s Hotel Okura, where panoramic skyline views distract from the 70 cover dining room’s plush neutral palette. In the ‘Experience’, ‘Guestronomy’ and ‘Caviar’ tasting menus, chef Arjan Speelman present diners with a succession of precise, whimsical plates showcasing the likes of oysters from Brittany, North Sea sole with salsify, lovage and ras el hanout, and Japanese wagyu. Go ‘all-in’ and the price also includes an aperitif, wine pairing, coffee or tea.”

Tripadvisor

Everything at Ciel Bleu is of unparalleled class. We chose the caviar experience this time. Every course was a flavor delight. Everything is balanced with each other. Really top notch. The team is also great. What a service. Nothing escapes them. That’s really great class, I’m already looking forward to last time. It’s always a pleasure with Noël Vanwittenbergh. Can talk beautifully about the wines!
