It is said (though it is probably a myth) that when Europeans arrived in Asia with firearms the locals were impressed and quickly built their own - made of wood.
The impression you have in Ciel Bleu is that they visited a lot of Michelin starred restaurants and came away with the idea that all that was required was to create very complicated dishes with lots of ingredients and extremely verbose descriptions to go with them - taste, imagination, service etc were all unnecessary. I suffered through an enormously long meal made up of boring and pretentious dishes with no taste until I could take it no more and left - there were still more dishes to come on the menu degustation I had chosen (and I had to pay for them) but at least I did not have to eat them. There are better restaurants in Amsterdam and, if you want a true Michelin star experience there are plenty of places to go elsewhere - just do not go here.
