The cuisine at Céleste draws on traditional French ‘savoir faire’, whilst championing the authenticity of the finest British organic produce. 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.
Céleste is recognised for “classic French cuisine delivered in an
original, modern style” under the leadership of five Michelin starred Parisian Chef Eric Frechon.

The name ‘Céleste’ derives from the late 19th century, from the French word meaning ‘heavenly’. Pertaining to the sky framed by the
restaurant’s glass domed roof, the name also acknowledges the Gallic influence of the
French chefs and alludes to a celestial gastronomic experience.
