Restaurant description

The flagship restaurant of the spectacular Lanesborough hotel, Céleste offers high-end contemporary fine dining, and retained their Michelin star in the 2018 Michelin guide as well as holding 3 AA Rosettes. The blissful Venetian-style dining room features a domed glass ceiling, suspended chandeliers and ornate wall carvings.

Weaving artful flair through the finest available ingredients, the Céleste restaurant menu includes sautéed squid with black ink porridge, native lobster with smoked broccoli purée, or wild roe deer saddle quince confit with cinnamon and celeriac and red wine sauce.

Guests dining in Céleste can expect magnificently decadent desserts, such as their Guanaja chocolate with caramelised cashew nut praline, chocolate mousse and roasted coffee bean ice cream, or hand-crafted sugar fig, sangria sorbet and fig leaf foam. This fairy tale space also boasts 2 luxurious wine tasting rooms, and afternoon tea at Céleste in London is multiple-time winner of the UK Team Council’s Award of Excellence.

Undoubtedly one of London’s most sophisticated restaurants, find Céleste restaurant in Knightsbridge, just next door to Hyde Park Corner Tube Station.

    Absolutely brilliant! High standards of service and 5* food. Extremely friendly staff & beautiful atmosphere. Mini Birthday cake was a nice touch to round off a special occasion/ treat.

    We booked last minute. I hadn't been to the Lanesborough for several years as I now live on the other side of town but was so glad I returned. The restaurant is as beautiful as ever and all the staff were on point with fabulous and friendly service, they are to be commended. The £39 3 course meal has to be the best deal in Belgravia.

    We were celebrating my daughter's 14th birthday and we had an amazing experience - from when we were sat down, little surprises that were offered ( candled treat, the chocolate globe) to the very end. Our menu included a sparkling wine and for my daughter they brough the most beautiful cranberry cocktail - nothing was too much effort The food was delicious - we each had a different starter and they were all on point. As for the dessert there was one firm favourite for all 3 of us - the cucumber sorbet with meringue which was delicious -

    As it was a spe ill birthday and wanted 2 of my special friends to celebrate with me I. Hose the Celeste at the Lanesborough. It is a lovely lokkomg place and so serene when one thinks that just outside is noisy Hyde Park Corner with buses and cars outside the door passing all the time, I knew it as St. George’s Hospital when I worked in Knightsbridge.From the time I entered I was made feel special. The place is spacious, bright lovely looking, the tables Re placed in a way that one feels free to speak without being overheard. The food and drinks are served on good quality China a d glass and so is the cutlery. I was offered a cushion and having a. Ad back this is very Important to me. (Last year I went to a very well known hotel and the table was so high that I had a problem to eat and when I asked for a cushion I was curtly told, we don’t do anything like that. They will never see me again) I particularly loved the Belly Pork, the hot bread a s when I asked for unsalted butter which is usually served in most places it was brought to me . The service was friendly but not intrusive and I must say they are all very well trained. Having been a Restaurant Manageress in my youth, I automatically see things like that. I loved the place and so did my guests and I am sure you will see us I. The future. I also loved the mirror feature in the foyer

    I booked this restaurant for my partners 30th birthday and we had the best time. It's a beautiful location - a lovely historic yet also bright and airy space, and looks much better in real life than any of the pictures I've seen. The food was delicious and the staff were absolutely amazing - very attentive and really went out of their way to make sure we had a great birthday celebration. I can't rate it enough, everything was wonderful!
