Review - Celestin

This review was written in a hurry. Sorry, but I didn't have much time to write a good review, but I wanted to let everyone know how great this place is.

Went with two friends last Friday night.

Excellent, French upscale bistro food. It's the real thing, just like in Paris. A little pricey, but really tasty and well-executed.

Good wine list, with lots of French stuff, but very few by the glass.

Classic baguette served with incredibly good butter.

The food: tartlette of escargots with Italian chestnuts with a litle bit of Burgundy-style butter sauce. Delicious. Then, duck confit two ways: one, it a beautfil pie with what I think may have been some cabbage. Excellent pastry, wonderful, great. Then, crispy leg bathed lightly in a rich brown sauce which had great depth of flavour. Coupled with a wonderful French wine, which I completely forget yet thoroughly enjoyed.

Dessert selections were impressive. I had lime tart topped with lavender ice cream. Real nice.

$100 per person. Worth it.
