RIJSWIJK - Restaurants Ciel Bleu in Amsterdam and De Leuf in Ubachsberg have been granted a second Michelin star each. Da Vinci in Maasbracht and Parkheuvel in Rotterdam were given the honour "showing two-star promise."

The organisation announced this on Tuesday with the presentation of the new Michelin guide for the Netherlands.

The designation granted the Parkheuvel and Da Vinci as "showing two-star promise" means that they are close to securing a second star. "They are just lacking a bit in consistency," said a spokesperson for Michelin. 

Newcomers who have earned their first star include the De Fuik in Aalst, Basiliek in Harderwijk, Amarone in Rotterdam, 't Veerhuis in Wolphaartsdijk and De Vlindertuin in Zuidlaren.

Restaurants Vermeer in Amsterdam and Le Cirque in Scheveningen both lost their star since head chef Robert Kranenborg stopped working at these locations.

Head chef Onno Kokmeijer at Ciel Bleu in the Okura Hotel was delighted with his second star. "I really did not expect this. It is wonderful to be honoured for our work in this way so soon. With the new interior and the wait staff led by Pasquinel Kolk and Noël Vanwittenbergh we have a shining future ahead of us. "
