A richly decorated dining room, naturally illuminated during the day by a domed glass roof while seductively aglow under softly lit chandeliers in the evening, Michelin-starred Céleste offers a truly memorable fine dining experience. Honouring British heritage and provenance with modern European creativity, Céleste’s aim is to take you on a culinary journey of great flavours and food with a real story.
Interiors by Alberto Pinto take the restaurant back to the Regency heritage in line with the rest of The Lanesborough.
Within Céleste, 250 different mouldings were created to achieve the historic scene in bas-relief that surrounds the frise under the sky dome.
English crystal chandeliers illuminate the delicate detailing, with the largest weighing 200kg and stretching two metres wide. The conservatory roof allows daylight to flood in for a light lunch and the mood evolves throughout the day for an indulgent dinner experience.
Mondays to Sundays for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
