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.

    We had a lovely time with great food and sparkling wine, and we definitely left feeling full. We really enjoyed sitting on a comfy sofa facing into the beautiful room and it was very peaceful. Service was quick, and although the staff were not overly friendly and smiley, they were very professional. We really enjoyed every course and it was nice that we also had some bread and an entree while we waited, and they prepared a plate with a small cake for my boyfriends birthday.

    The hotel is very conveniently located next to Hyde Park Tube station, the decor is quietly elegant and the glass ceiling is stunning. Service and food (both taste and presentation) were excellent. They managed our food allergies seemlessly and made us feel very welcome, comfortable and special. It was a wonderful lunch.

    I had really enjoyed the dining experience at Celeste at the The Lanesbourough. The ambience is great, such beautiful and refined decor. The waiting staff has impeccable service. I really enjoyed the courgette soup and lemon dessert !! The dessert particularly has delicate refreshing taste, fine balance of sweetness and sourness. I am not so much of fan for the salmon with chew mien, but it's a personal preference !!

    Setting ***** Food ***** (Nearly all perfect, beautiful delicate flavors. Salmon was a bit one dimensional. Overpowered by soy) Service **** (Maitre d’ and sommelier excellent, waiter was a bit overbearing. Hidden and attentive would have been better) Overall a really fantastic experience. Would love to come again.
