Haute cuisine in London, at the Lanesborough

The Lanesborough’s esteemed restaurant, Celeste, has just been awarded its first Michelin star. Baroque Access investigates


Finally, there’s another stunning, Michelin-starred restaurant to visit in the heart of London! Céleste at The Lanesborough offers creative, modern French food that is as extraordinary as its presentation. With Chef Patron Eric Frechon at the helm (he was originally from the famous Bristol in Paris) and his latest protégé, Executive Chef Florian Favario, who was renowned for his expertise at the Parisian restaurant Epicure, the restaurant has added something worthy to London’s vibrant food scene.  Together these two chefs hold five Michelin stars – that includes Céleste, which has recently earned its first Michelin star.


Céleste is not only about dinner. The restaurant is also famous for its afternoon tea, where a professional tea sommelier advises guests on the right tea to suit their palate and to complement their choice of pastries, cakes and sandwiches. The menu, which is certainly imaginative, has just been recreated to celebrate Céleste’s Michelin star. It’s a limited set menu accompanied by champagne.


The restaurant itself has a delightful setting. The dining room is plush, naturally lit during the day through a domed glass roof, and at night it’s seductive under a glow of light from a series of elegant chandeliers. The guests change with the light; Céleste is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as high tea.

The menu has been carefully selected by its chefs to offer a creative mix of delicate flavour and captivating presentation. Whatever you order is guaranteed to be as delicious as it is beautiful to look at. The special tasting menu that has been created by these two Michelin-starred chefs to celebrate Céleste’s own Michelin star features five different courses. It features innovative, flavoursome dishes using seasonal British ingredients.
