Our first summerlicious this year and I decided to try Celestin, it’s been on my list. The highlight was definitely the Fish soup a la Vizcaina, it was very flavourful, and almost have a bisque like taste to it. The photo beside the soup is the other appetizer – Shrimp salad, mango, and coriander coulis.
I started with their Celestini cocktail (as shown in photo) and Joe had a glass of the chardonnay.
For the main, we had the Basque style pan seared red snapper (main photo above) and Mediterranean style braised beef short ribs. I quite enjoyed the snapper, very good texture and sauce was nice and light. Dessert was lovely; we had the Crème Arlequin – basically crème brûlée with chocolate on top instead of the caramelizing sugar hard top and the Lemon berry meringue tart.
Celestin was a full house, whether it’s the weekend or Summerlicous, I wouldn’t know, as it’s our first visit. But I can tell customers enjoy the setting, the interior is charming with a touch of French bistro decor. Setting is ideal for intimate dinner for two or for casual dinners for small parties – worth going back to try the regular menu.
Dinner for Summerlicious is $35 per person.
